Our infrastructure doubled and our EAP's almost doubled. But there are many unknowns about our new setup that cannot be realized until we are on the playa.

And here I thought I was bad using a whip!

FYI, moderators- u see i am trying to to do the right thing...have already contacted our placer, told him strait up what the sti. was...I know he is f'd, like the rest of us, but we're all going to make this happen- this, above anything, I have faith in.

There is a file line between letting stuff happen and making stuff happen. Sometimes you just need to make plans, assuming things are going to work out. - those nasty detail things tend to work themselves out.

Finally got my EA email today. Actually, until I saw the email I was unaware that it was missing. :shock: 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!
Love Rice

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.


Not opposed to the rules, I we actually have two ROCKET SCIENTISTS in our camp... not complaining, just sharing!

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?

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


bless all the monkeys of the world (me & my husband- we'z da monkeys)- CRTT- esplanade & 7:15- think we're ok, but burner-fellows helping us make sure, well that makes my day!

That was snarky and confrontational of me. I apologize with all sincerity.

You are not allowed to use early arrivals as an enticement to join your camp, or to buy/sell/trade/gift early arrivals with anyone outside your camp or project. End of story.
