Bart and I will be there, camped near the 3:00 Plaza at Ranger Outpost Berlin, dressed at least some of the time as Ranger Full Gear and Ranger Zygote. We have the Airstream with blue Egyptian Eyes of Ra on the front, if you happen to pass by and wonder. Stop by for a beer!

Time flys.

Wow, can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Howdy, hope to be joining ya'll this year. I plan to go postal for most of my playa stay (if the ticket goddess is good to me). I will make sure the the post cards get to to the BRC postoffice and will deliver as much playa bound mail as I can. Plus my usual MOOP detailing.

Ticket Sales Plan is out!

Hello friends,
Check your email today if you haven't already seen the most recent Jack Rabbit Speaks. It has links to all the info about ticket sales for this year.
Any news about how many Directed Group Tickets our camp will get a chance to buy, and how they will be distributed?
Looking forward to seeing you all again!
Gail and Kelli

I have a couple of curious questions.
How much water does everyone usually haul in for the week? How much propane do you need to use your refrigerator for the week? Solar or generators for fans/ac?
We have lots of great teas- one of my closest friends blends them so we will bring lots of teas and make bunches of iced teas some of them are pretty good spiked

Thanks for your response! That's what I needed to hear. It sounds a lot like raising my first and then second child. ;-)

I had to take valium to deal with the shock of seeing other Airstreamers who "let the dust in" - and I got some dust.
Last year, I left the vents uncovered, door open, windows open, forgot about the valium and did what other Airtreamers did and what the hay, I got some dust.
In both cases, an exterior wash following a vinegar spray, then a wax job did the outside. Inside, lots of vacuuming and a bit of wiping again with a dash of vinegar - and its like it never happened.
Now and then I find a little cowering collection of dust in a remote corner and I have to smile at the memories it brings back.
In a nutshell: Go, enjoy and forgetabout it!

No dogs allowed... :-(
Our dogs are seasoned desert campers and hikers. I understand the issues, and it is probably a good thing that they are banned, but this results in no options for us. Sorry...

You'll probably want access to air conditioning. We have lots of beautiful Nevada Air, conditioned very well from calm forever visibility and distant mirages to dust occluded less than 20', temperatures from 110's to 30's, and that's Tuesday morning. Wednesday you're on your own. Watch out for lightening, parching dry, rain with double and triple rainbows and that's your Thursday. Friday at 16:00 precisely there will be a white out, guaranteed for many years now (that's the start of the bicycle ride at the Man, better know as Critical.... We usually assist with the after bike ride party (at a previously secret location only known by the driver of Soul Train, members of the Playa Choir, Mary's Gynecologist and us if we're lucky) by setting up the bike locating poles and holding the Sacred Circle for the thousands of ladies and their Drumming Circle and that's your Friday. Oh, if RMB brings Placed Playa Art and has the permission from FAST (Fire Arts Safety Team), we help him burn his perfectly good art on Thursday.
So welcome to the fun. And fill your water tanks. We can flag down vacuum trucks roaming the city for pump out ($65 or something) Maybe bring a few more water jugs as other's chime in. Haven't heard of anyone running out of propane for refrigerator that I can remember.
Stay tuned, more info coming down the tubes soon.

Two bottles of propane will last up to three weeks with cooking, hot water, and fridge all included. I always bring 15-20 gal of extra water in 5 gal jerry cans. As a solo camper I've never had to use more than one can above my Safari's standard fresh tank.

You'll run out of eggs first. Make yourself a "desert cooler" by wrapping a standard styrofoam cooler with silver mylar bubble wrap insulation (make a jacket using clear tape, with a lid that slides down over the lower jacket). You can keep things cool for 4-6 days, plus you can buy ice on the playa. In the "old" days before ice sales, a double insulated cooler was essential in getting through the week. If there is more than one of you in the Airstream, you'll find the fridge isn't quite big enough (speaking for vintage owners, here. The new fridges are a big improvement unless you're in a Bambi).

My advice is camp in your trailer for a week and you will answer most of your questions. If you haven't ever done that, Burning Man is not the place to do it for the first time. Do it even if you have to camp in your driveway and go to work every day--you'll learn a lot.

As for air conditioning--it is desirable, but you can do OK inside a closed Airstream for maybe 2 hours if you have a 12V fan. With no fan and no A/C you can last about 5 minutes. The dust storms don't last forever. Median length is about 2 hours...

Welcome home Archie! We have a tiny little bit of info from Placement, nothing but a general Wake Up and get your Burner Profile Up to date.
Anyone that buys a ticket needs a Burner Profile that works with the Email addy you put on the Burner Profile. Best to go check that your Profile is working.
And Dang, $80 for a vehicle pass?, on top of the 9% graft to the Nevada unlegislators, and the ticket delivery to your mailbox fee, and the last fee TicketFly tacks on that nobody knows about, was it $20 or something

And so, who out there wants to come home? Grumpy Formologist may want to know soon. Hey, somebody build me a BurningMan Airstreameri emoticom or I'll use wally

RMB, we love your article especially all the discreet dusty details.

Gigi and Rex are returning home with the little one (Tanya). She's applied to volunteer for mental health so we can use her skills in camp as well. Planning on bringing back the Peace sign and hopefully a new scrap art piece too. 'Peace of metal' is currently in the back yard by the chicken coop complete with Christmas lights. We think we'll bring the lights too this year for added visual appeal and safety.

Our poor trailer is in the shop getting a whole new floor. It was so rotten that we could have broken in one of the soft spots during the lock out instead of launching Tanya thru the cut screen. It's a wonder it didn't collapse during the big dust party...must have been playa magic.
