That was in '96. Most people didn't have cell phones then either, and got online with 33k modems, and would be reading this as a "newsgroup" (alt.burning.man). To complain that the rules have changed since then is like complaining that Hootie & the Blowfish haven't released any good songs ever in a while...
It's not like these "rules" dropped on your head out of the blue, with no warning. They've been growing incrementally over the years, and if you're unable to keep up with the changes maybe you should pass the baton in the camp. It's not like they're rocket science.

The name and location of your camp might help to plan for the possibility!

Finally got my EA email today. Actually, until I saw the email I was unaware that it was missing. From where I live, the logistics of getting to the playa are more complex than anything I actually do on the playa.
When I start to think you are all crusty jerks, you go and do awesome stuff... Sure hope I get to the Meet & Greet!

nope, never been there for an 'extended weekend'- besides my first year, where I was severely injured and unable to work for 6 months. Also promised early in & free ticket for life- my own fault for not keeping up on that...so been paying for 16 years. NEVER been in less than early. Got something else to say?
