We here at the NYC Container wanted to let you know that as long as we
have enough people to buy space in at least 1 container...we are a go.
Anticipating the potential for ticket-fuckary, and feeling like we are
a part of the NYC Community's on-playa infrastructure, we went ahead
and grabbed a couple of the uber-expensive early tickets just to make
sure we would have at LEAST a few of us on playa.
Like most of you -- as a group -- we did not all get tickets in the
lottery. And actually, no one in our camp who applied for the lottery
got tix. However, we did get enough between the early sale and the
container campers with ranger tix that we will have enough
infrastructure to get the containers out there.
We are hoping for the best in the next round of tickets so that the
rest of our crew can come out and help the scenario run more smoothly.
but REST ASSURED! We will be there. And either Nickname or me or both
of us will be on playa to welcome those of you attending with open
arms. Or a snarly growl....the usual.

Just want to keep you as informed as we are.
We have learned that the container that left early is on track and in Chicago but we aren't sure about the other container.
we know that many of you need to arrange for rental cars/trucks for load out so we are trying to get info on whether it will happen this Saturday, the 15th or the following Saturday, the 22nd as quickly as we can.

Dear NYC area burners,
Please read this whole email. Don't skim. Use all your powers and read it. I know, it's kinda long. It's important. (love ya!)
Miss those playa boogers? I know I do!
So here's the news on load-out.
The drivers were able to get about half the East Coast containers out of BRC on Tuesday morning. They couldn't come get our containers Monday night because so many of you loaded in late (harumph!)
By the time they came back to get the 2nd round of containers Wednesday morning, the rain had started and they were stopped by sherrifs at the gate from entering the city. Too many were getting stuck in the mud. See the note below from the shipper:
"All my drivers got turned around there are people/truckers stuck out on the Playa. it rained last night and containers and other things have sunk and or are stuck in the dirt/mud…. The police/road services are out there. They told my drivers it could be hours so I will try calling the main gate in Gerlach later but drivers are hearing that most likely it will be tomorrow… I am crossing my fingers that the rain does not continue out there…."
So the news is: The containers are potentially delayed by 1 week. If they get out today, they may still be here by load out the 15th. However, if they don't get out today they won't be here until the following Saturday, the 22nd. We will keep you informed as to the whereabouts of our stuff. And then, you never know when they will get pulled off the rails, things inspected, stuff broken, etc. We will keep YOU informed as we hear information.
IMPORTANT: If you gave some of your space away, YOU are responsible for getting others this information.
IMPORTANT: Load out is different from load in. There are no arrival times. Show up when it starts. IT is a FULL ON community effort. We pull everything off at once and you come get it. That said, EVERYONE OF YOU are wonderful and jump on the truck and do some pulling-off. Those who don't get pushed to the back of the line next year...
We love you! It's always an adventure! And remember...we guarantee nothing!
