Doesn't make sense that the 38,000 pre registered were shut out in 40 minutes as being "sold out". Looks to me that BM got snookered again and their "third party agency" sold wads and wads of tickets to scalpers not pre registered through the Burner Profile thing. Have no idea how they'll sort this out.

Tickets turn over through the STEP program, so you still have a chance at tickets. Also, tickets tend to become more plentiful in mid to late summer.

I heard aliens bought the tickets after seeing last year's man base.

Perhaps we should stick to facts.

All the tickets available at this point (38,000) sold out in about 45 minutes.

Well, I was on there on time and didn't get any. Got put in the endless refresh loop for about 20 minutes and then booted off. But I'm sure it will be awesome for those that got tickets! Have fun!

The ticketing process is incredibly frustrating for most people. Kind of takes the anticipatory joy out of the event. Sure hope the powers that be get it under control for next year. Meanwhile don't give up yet. People's plans do change and usually there are some tix floating around as the summer approaches.

This is the most frustrating part. What does it mean? Does it mean you are in line and just waiting for the window to open? Or are you in the loop waiting to get in line? I liked it 4 years ago when there was a countdown window that gave you and idea of where you were in line and how fast you were getting to the front. This "refresh" is just plain BS because you have no clue what's happening behind the curtain.

Agreed Z. ^^
You keep wondering where you are, what's up, and if you should be doing something differently.
It worked much better before.

I'll be out there with two other Classic RV's and two trailers in our camp, and I know of two other motorhomes planning on going.

A burn highlight from years past was driving the Love Sub RC Airstream into your camp with no apparent driver, and heading straight towards the nicest looking trailer...talk about nervous looking people!
