POST ALTERNATE LOCATIONS FOR BM 2013

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

but.... isn't there a federal law against mary j? and if so, does it matter if the state decriminalizes or even legalizes? doesn't federal law trump all?

I guess it does matter in the case of Burning Man if BLM has a hard-on against Marijuana. I don't know if they are prepared to make possession of marijuana a federal offense.

Possession of mj is already a federal offense... :mrgreen: So if you get busted for a little green (or anything for that matter) be respectful and polite, use the manners your mama taught you and you'll most likely just walk away with just the stupid tax/fine.

All right, let's discuss pot someplace else.
You got a serious idea for a venue?

The rocket clubs use the Blackrock as one of their venues.

Sturgis is not centered on one 5 square mile tract of land - people stay in campgrounds and RV parks for 50 miles in every direction.

I say Southern Oregon on the turf farms, Farther drive for most, shorter drive for many. Would be nice to have a permanent site so infrastructure can be laid down... I for one wouldnt miss the dust, but spend 2+ months a year on the Blackrock as well.

IIRC, 007 had suggested that buying the turf would be cheaper than the rent on the playa, and, the farmer loses nothing, and if any is left, gets some "extra" to sell. Otherwise, harvests the dead, trampled stuff and replants, just as usual.
also with burning stuff: since the top layer of soil is removed with the sod, cleanup might even be easier? and it' could probably be taken away, tilled and reused for sod later in the year.


I don't know about mud, Fishy.......of course, weather can never be predicted, but, not only do I bet it drains well, but I'm sure provisions for it not to be watered, well in advance, could be made.

It certainly would be an added bonus if it were near a lake someplace so we could go skinny dipping.

Sod isn't just grass and dirt. It's also that nasty plastic netting embedded in the dirt. I'm just sayin....

If I saw a truck driving down the road with Sail Man on the license plate, I'd have to report my ride stolen. :shock:

The weather is not that much different in Southern Oregon. Its only 150 miles or so from the BRC as is and as far as it getting muddy, the farmer simply does not water it. Without irrigation the ground will harden up sufficiently to drive tractor trailers on, same way they harvest it. Would be nice to flop down at 0300 in the grass and watch the stars. Moop would be easier to catch as well since the little stuff wont keep blowing away like it does in the desert.

I'll venture a guess that after we're done there will be places where nothing will grow

especially where the hippies hang out for the week....

Mr. Grass Farmer may not be too pleased with that outcome

Just a thought - I have those occasionally
