The exciting part is my girlfriend can now go with me. I thought that might not happen. Here is where I need help. I changed my plans to go out early so my girlfriend's ticket with STEP will be in my name. She cannot come out until a couple days after the event starts. it is my understanding a name chance cannot be made so how can I get her the ticket if I am on Playa and she is showing up at some random time? I was looking into it and I kind of get the impression I can pick up the ticket at Will Call and then give it back in her name even as a STEP ticket. The name chance can only not be made online before the Burn. Is this true? I am running out of time to pay for the tickets and I do not know what I should do.
Any help as to how I can pick a ticket up in person at Will Call through STEP and then somehow get the ticket to a person coming later will be very helpful. Thank you


You should be fine. STEP tickets are sold in pairs all the time. As the owner of the pair, you must show up first, collect yours, and put hers in her legal name at Will Call. She shows up with a government issued I.D. with said name on it--and the confirmation number just in case--and collects her ticket at Will Call.

You are correct in deducing that you cannot put her name on the ticket before reaching the event.

hey folks - i have two burning man tickets i bought through their STEP program, but sadly can't use. STEP is now closed for re-sale, but BM is willing to change the name on the tickets if i can sell them at face value (240 x2 = 480) in the next 36 hours. they are 'will call' tickets (all STEP tickets are) so if you're interested i will loop you in with BM guy so you feel comfortable they are legit.

email me if interested...

I think everyone who wants to go is already on the bus. I don't think any STEPchildren are being left behind. Praise the Almighty Timestamp!

Got my STEP email Monday morning. Was going to let it expire, as I have already purchased tickets from a friend. Problem is, those tickets are in transit somewhere, and thanks to the vagaries of Canada Post and the complication of travelling, having mail held, etc., I was getting nervous about that delivery. So this evening, just now, I clicked that link and got the STEP tickets.

YAY! I am now more officially than ever going to Burning Man!

And I may be posting those other tickets (at face value, natch) in the "Tickets For Sale" subforum tomorrow....

:D

I AM GOING TO BURNING MAN!!! :mrgreen:

So all of these tickets are available and I had to wait in line for months... :)

I was out of town for a week backpacking in Cloud Peak National Forest and Big Horn Nation Forest in WY; it is awesome to see the list move along so far. Can not wait to see everyone.

The JR Speaks is talking about how to talk to Law Enforcement, you know what that means...time to finish packing.

It happens every year, as the event date approaches people make the call as to whether they'll be able to go or not.

It does look like everyone who'd been waiting in STEP has managed to get a ticket, doesn't it?

Of course, my physical tickets arrived the day after I bought the non-transferrable STEP tickets. And since STEP is closed, I can't sell the latter back into the queue. GAH. I'm out $800 because I panicked. :oops: Hopefully I can find a buyer for the physical ones....

We were offered STEP tickets! But since we bought hard copy tickets, we declined so hopefully other Steppers will get them!

See you all on the Playa!

just posted a ticket for sale. I bought it off a friend who can't go with the intention of reselling it, but then delivery took too long and step tickets started flowing and my buyer got what he needed elsewhere.

i sure hope i don't get stuck with this extra ticket

I live in Reno and I have a question. I have my tickets waiting in will call, I was wondering if I could go pick them up in the week before BM when the will call will be open to give out early entry tickets? I woldn't be trying to go in, just never mind a trip to the desert, and I'd like to avoid any will call lines the day the gate opens. Figured I'd ask before driving out there haha

Pretty darn Twilight Zone to get stuck with an extra ticket after riding this roller coaster...but at least I'm not the only one in the boat. Sure would be super-groovy if unsold tickets would simply roll over into 2013 but I will not be holding my breath on that one. Good luck to all seeking to buy or sell tickets in the final 2 weeks!

Of course in 30 years an unused ticket is going to be worth a lot more than a used...

I have just been anxiety ridden about the whole burning man thing, for months, and suddenly, today, when my work colleague hugged me, and wished me "a life affirming adventure" I was suddenly excited.

Hope to see some of you shiny step-kids!! Love and good wishes to all.
