I agreee with Zep, . Or is it something she's writing about us in the RV magazine?
We do seem to have a group that are on the 48 month plan. Sorta gives them unfair advantage of another year to prepare.

Preliminary Ticket Information from the Rabbit Speaks

Most everyone on here is probably getting "the Rabbit Speaks", but here's some info on tickets:

BURNING MAN 2013 TICKETS: THE HOLIDAY SALE

Here's the deal: we don't know yet what Black Rock City's allowable peak population for 2013 will be. Some of the details of agreements that impact that number have not yet been finalized, which means we don't have enough data to determine precisely how many tickets will be sold and at what price. We are working hard to get our permits and agreements in place, and will be announcing the full ticket plan on Friday January 4, 2013. That said ...

We know you're super curious about some big questions, and we'd like to put your mind at ease about a few things right now: tickets will be sold first-come first-served -- that's right, no lottery. Secondly, purchasing tickets will require pre-registration so that we can weed out known scalpers beforehand. We'll offer a robust Low Income Ticket Program, as we have in the past, and we're bringing back the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) to facilitate the safe, hassle-free exchange of tickets between people in the aftermarket.

So there are the big ones for you. We'll have the rest -- all the details -- on January 4th. And with that, here's information about the Holiday Sale ...

Burning Man Tickets Holiday Sale:

Early-birds can participate in our Holiday Sale, which allows folks to buy tickets in time for holiday gifting. PLEASE NOTE: Holiday Sale tickets are priced dramatically higher than our regular tickets will be and Black Rock City, LLC will donate 3% of the price of each ticket sold during this early Holiday Sale to the Burning Man Project, a new nonprofit dedicated to spreading Burning Man culture around the world. (In addition, Black Rock City, LLC makes other substantial contributions throughout the year to support the Burning Man Project, including contributing the proceeds from fundraising events and many other forms of support.)

So ... here are the details:

- 3000 tickets will be offered at $650 each for the Holiday Sale.
- In order to participate in this sale, you must pre-register at:
http://tickets.burningman.com/registration-holiday2013.html
- Registration is open NOW and will close at noon PST on Wednesday December 19th.
- Those pre-registered will be able to participate in the first-come first-served sale on Thursday December 20th, starting at noon PST.
- You may purchase a maximum of 4 tickets per person.
- These tickets are not eligible for STEP, but are transferable (you are welcome to resell them on your own, if you wish).
- The only payment types accepted are Mastercard or Visa credit cards, or debit cards with either the Visa or Mastercard symbols. If you don't have one of these cards, you will need to obtain a one-time use card.
- Physical tickets will be shipped between June 1 and July 15, unless you opt for pick-up at Will Call in Black Rock City.

(We will not be implementing identity-based ticketing (e.g. name-on-ticket) ... for more information, see this blog post from Larry Harvey: http://blog.burningman.com/?p=23887.)

Here's an idea....

Why dont we build a very large carboard box in such a way that the inside is totally black and leave assorted gifts inside for the visitors to stumble over... Not big gifts ... a bottle of beer, some chocolates etc that kind of thing.

??

Then how about a dumpster? Filled wth 2 cu ft boxes ( empty) but for two or three boxes containing a treat??

Dumpster Diving/ Cargo Cult? Yes No??!

Interesting, thoughtful commentary on the Burning Blog about the Cargo Cult theme:
Burning Blog » Blog Archive » Cargo Cult is a daring

It's long, but well worth reading and pondering. What are the parallels? If we go with the theme, do we want to be literal or ironic? If we go with ironic, do we mock other cargo cults, or the cargo cultishness of Burning Man?

(Just in case you needed something to do when escaping from the hectic hazards of the holidays.)
