Tee Shirts, again. People talk a good game, but when the peddle hits the metal very few are ordered.

I can see a price of $15, for an order of 10 shirts or more. Tee shirt color would be playa dust, 2x - 3x would be $20. Brand, Fruit of the Loom HD
... but only after a firm commitment for 10 or more Tees.

PS, last time I did shirts for BM we sold 2.
  1. Would I be out of line if I suggested that all early arrivals and pretty much anyone who posts on this thread be required to get shirts? I mean, I wouldn't want some last minute Airstreameri who show up like the Gynecologists did a few years ago to be excluded, but wouldn't it be nice if the "regulars" (not accusing anyone of actually being regular, here) all showed up at the Wednesday pot luck in theme T-shirts? (Nice, as in that's all they were wearing...no, I take that back, having seen many of the "regulars.")
  2. Not do T-shirts
  3. Vote for #1 or #2, nothing in between.
I vote for #1.

I have a great party game my parents (yes) used to play. Hang up a sheet, all the women on one side, the guys on the other, then the guys reach under the sheet to see if they can....

Got another note back from mr Artstream:
Hey Perry,
Thanks for confirmation that BM turned into what everybody thought it would!
The cavern shirt is still in production. I could add your logo to the shirt like I did on the original BM shirt. Being stock, no minimum order!

Keep in touch
relayed via smoke signals

and another: Hey Perry,
I think you should just post that "There is an airstream/Burnner artist in the community who would be happy to design custom tee shirts, you can contact him at : CampstreamUSA.com Mention Perry for a discount"

I plan on sending for a couple shirts anyway, Michael for sure can use the check.

Note on the Ticket question by RhinoWW: Do go to the Burningman.com and get your "burner profile" done; cause when whatever happens for tickets, I believe you have to go through the burner profile for the ticket. Be suspect of any you find outside of the BM ticketing. There usually do come up several for sale all over the place the week before the burn from folks trying to unload extras. Last year the main ticket sale came open on a Tuesday morning, but 4 or 5 pm they were all sold out. Now I'd better go check to see if last year's profile works this year. oh yeayy, it works. Sparkly thing is coming up ticket dates, we gotta watch for news about Feb 12. You all remind me to check my Sparkly things frequently.

All you "regulars" PM me or email me your emails, I may be needing them to lissssst again. Feb12.

Do your "Burner Profile" at: http://profiles.burningman.com/ and check your "Sparkly Things" Right now it shows a calender of the different ticketing dates.

Burning Man has long been one of my goals. I got my burner profile yesterday. I wondered about all the sand in my flooring when I dismantled my trailer..now I think maybe Pedro has been on the playa before.

Do I need to do anything else to be "in" the group you are planning? Other than finish my trailer, I mean..

If that is all that you are wearing at BM you would be busted for "toddling", also known as "shirtcocking."

New News from the Placement Gods

Thought so, here's some news from Placement, be SURE to PM or email send to me the SAME email addy you put on your Burner Profile! Now are we an established camp in good upright standing? er just leaning a little to windward.....::::::::::

DIRECTED GROUP TICKETS OPPORTUNITY FOR CAMPS

As groups that contribute to the core social infrastructure of Black Rock City, we are inviting theme camps to participate in our group ticket sales. This means that some members of established theme camps in good standing who were approved for Placement in 2013 will receive an invitation to participate in this sale via their 2013 registered lead contact: the person who filed their Placement questionnaire in 2013. Please understand that we cannot support the total population of a camp with this program, only the minimum core necessary to produce a camp.

Pre-registering and getting access to this sale does NOT guarantee your group tickets. They are available on a first come, first served basis while they last. Nor does participating in the Directed Group Sale guarantee your group will receive camp Placement (or vehicle registration, art grants, or other accommodations) in 2014. The Placement registration process remains a separate entity with our questionnaire going live on February 19, closing April 30th, with Placement announced in early July.

BURNER PROFILES NEEDED FOR CAMP LEADS AND THEIR INVITEES

To access the Directed Group Sale and create their invite list, leads must first create and complete a Burner Profile (if you haven't already).


WHAT YOU SHOULD DO RIGHT NOW: VERIFY INVITEES!

You are encouraged to have your list of invitees prepared and ready to go! You will need their first and last names (real ones, please!), and current email addresses affiliated with their Profiles. Make certain that the email address you list for your key group members is the primary email address on their existing Profile, or if they do not yet have a profile, make sure they use the email address you list when they create their profile. Email addresses must match in order for them to be able to opt in to the Directed Group Sale. If the email address you list is not the primary email address associated with their Profile then they will not see the option to enter the sale.

The registration and invite period will be from Thursday, January 30 12pm (noon) PST through Tuesday, February 4 12pm (noon) PST.

More questions about the Burner Profile? Please see the Burner Profile FAQ FAQ | Burner Profiles.

Questions about 2014 Burning Man tickets or any of our sales? Please visit the ticket page: ticket.burningman.com as well as our Ticketing FAQ Forums ticketsupport.burningman.com.

See you in the Directed Group Sale!

Hope To Be There!

Hello All,
I'm following your thread with interest. I don't yet have an Airstream but am hoping to buy one in the next few months (probably newer 16 footer) and make it to Burning Man this year. Sounds like an amazing time!

Naw, you won't be seeing sand inside. Playa dust is dust, very very fine silt. I did a sieve analysis on some a few years ago and only had a few percent that didn't go through the 200 sieve. After 6 days there was still 24 some percent in suspension in the hydrometer test. (Test question, need to know that to get in). And you need to chime in on our wackiness now and then and have 5 questions from the Survival Guide in Burningman.com. We don't construct too many large structures but we do chase MOOP with a passion, MOOP buckets are a requirement. And welcome home!

I've redone five 1970s Airstreams and every one of them had 1/4" of sand under the carpet. PLaya dust is different--it sticks to things. You can remove it with light scrubbing using diluted vinegar. Many Airstreameri have shown up with brand new Airstreams and have come back several years running, so it's not a complete disaster, even with a new trailer.

Just pay attention to the wind and NEVER EVER leave camp with your windows and vents open (or your awning deployed).

I would like to join the Airstreameri.
I have a 1950 Flying Cloud I would bring.
I would have to acquire ticket(s).
I only have myself to offer, as for contributing, and I do offer myself.

Thank you Thank you thank you.

Hello everyone 2013 BM was incredible, I camped at station 9 and everyone was great. I drove my AS from NYC to Black Rock City and back to NYC, Great ride kinda long. It was my first cross country trip in my AS. I will be doing it again but this time i will drive without stoping, Im guessing a 48 hour drive. I am looking now for people to help with high cost of gas and help with the driving. All my fears about bring my AS were silly. I over packed and never spend much time in my AS. I had little to no dust in my baby. This year i will be getting new tiers and a lube job. Fearing a blowout, lol. My honda 3000 mini would over load when i turned the air conditioner on. This never happen before maybe some can give me some answers about that. some told me because of the altitude. I would also like to know is there a way of getting internet. is their a dish or some kind of system i can buy to put in my AS. I was so busy with the ESD/MHB that i didn't find my AS family. This year i will be working less visiting more. I hope to see everyone that has spent so much time helping me get prepared for my virgin BM journey. Thank you thank you thank you.

Trailer storage near BM

We live in Massachusetts and Groucho (150 Ford pick up) will be towing "Lydia"(1972 Safari) to Burning Man this year. I figure that even if we really pushed it, and I don't want to do that, it would take a week or more to get out and another to get back. I am now thinking that maybe storing the trailer and truck somewhere near Black Rock City over the winter might not be a bad idea. Living in NE we are unlikely to use it over the winter anyway and storing would give us the option of flying out in the spring and bringing it back or possibly just keeping it stored or use it on the West Coast until BM 2015. I have heard mentioned that there is a small industry servicing RV storage for Burning Man in Reno was wondering if anyone on the list had experience with this. Alternatively, if anyone could recommend a storage option within 200 miles, ideally near a major airport that they would recommend.
