Finally signed up for ePlaya

Postby Mako » Wed Apr 03, 2013 2:06 pm

Made it to 2011 big burn, got stopped at the gate and refused at 2012. Looking forward to 2013.

My story is long and slightly interesting. Question and answer kind of thing, as always. I'm in Portland and I do SOAK as well. The 2012 SF Decomp was awesome.

Got a few projects and things I do at burns. I dig acting and performance art as a whole, so this is my shit, more or less.

Hello to everyone. Please don't push me off the board too early because of my post count, you elitist forum lurkers. You know who you are. 7.7

Why were you stopped and refused at the gate?

According to the training they gave me when I joined Gate (training both in Oakland and on Playa), there is a mighty good reason when someone gets turned away.

Yes, I'd like to know what abominable act or cargo caused you to be refused as well.

I hope it turns out to be:
"Well, I read the survival guide and saw that Dogs aren't allowed- but my old Labrador is a really good dog. He never barks and likes everyone. I take him camping everywhere. I assumed that rule was to keep mean nasty dogs out! Like pit bulls, rottweilers, and chows. So, I told Sparky to hide in the RV Shower stall. But as soon as the gate checker walked in the RV, Sparky jumped out and licked his face."

OR

"I forgot take my Glock and holster off my belt and hide it before getting out of my vehicle at Gate."
