i think Roberto's frustration comes from the fact I've been "burning since 2006" so i shold know better by now. well, 2006 was my first regional, and 2007 was my first and only time at the big burn, and didnt have to worry about a cooler back then. this is my fault for not posting in the Greeter's Station and introducing myself, sorry bout that.
and i should have reworded my thread title, im not actually freaking out. of course ill deal with it however which way, but i just wanted to see if others got screwed at the airport for going over the size limit by just 9 inches for example, and see what other people do when flying in.
@macglenver: i know what you mean, it is definitely harder for us that fly in to contribute to the playa experience, esp when (in my case anyway) the cards deal in your favor last minute to be able to go the burn. if i ever get hardcore about it i will rent a storage unit and ship my big art project stuff out there etc. its no wonder that i noticed in 2007 the majority of the art and peeps were from the west coast area like san fran, LA, etc. yea theres stuff from as far as europe but thats the minority.
anyway, fuck your day assholes and all that, carry on
