often thought about going and this year could be my opportunity ...! if not I'll plan better for 2018 .. thx, Nick
To be blunt, tickets are becoming a crap shoot every year with the main ticket sale sellling out in a matter of seconds, with many many participants not getting ticket while many frat partiers get tickets that bring nothing to the playa but MOOP and noise. Folks that make the event are pushed out.

Best bet now is try for the STEP, and the OM.. G sale coming up.

and you're welcome to come join our camp, just bring it! We're amazed some years by virgins that come and really wow us with Expresso and propane barbeque and scientific talks and

Hi Everyone,

Well, phase one of the VVV rebuild is finished - new front lights, under body lights, new rad, clutch, tires and oil! Phase 2 begins: New re enforced seats, new paint job, new front grille and a new platform for the bubbler as well as easier access to the genset starting cord and a bubble fluid pump.

One item remains open as it were. A lot of people have asked about music .... Canvassing friends and others ( enemies?) there was a suggestion to have the introduction to the Game of Thrones movie playing on the VVV. Its a grumbling rumbling drum roll - very volcanish!

The question! Would anyone be interested in bringing an amplified speaker that could play a digital loop off smart phone? Or any other set up that might work.....

Please email me if you can help.

Thanks!!

It will be many years before I'm able to make it to burning man, but I cannot resist sharing this video which is one of the very best--and earliest--spoofs made with that Hitler "Downfall" movie footage.

There are swears in the subtitles. There is also, quite specifically, a mention of an "art car" ... but I'll resist leaving any more spoilers.

Enjoy!

These parodies are the best. Especially the sports ones.

Cosmic and Spitfire will be at an Oregon unit WBCCI Rally in Madras Oregon for the eclipse and then we will make our way down to BRC arriving on Friday. Perhaps some of you will be at the Madras Rally? If so lets connect in Madras.

Any idea when info on camp placement will be made by the org?

We have some Ranger training on Sunday but we have Saturday to help set up camp with other early arrivals

BRC Rangers with an Airstream in Redwood City? We're BRC Rangers with an Airstream in Menlo Park.

Stop by the Tin Pickle at Ranger Outpost Berlin and say Howdy!

Cosmic and Spitfire will be in Madras for the Eclipse! That's interesting, because Jilly Bean and Obi Wan were looking at the map, and had picked Madras as a place to be for the eclipse, but we knew nothing about the rally.

The Oregon WBCCI unit organized a rally in Madras for the eclipse but it was sold out with a waiting list as far back as last August. Its organized by Rhonda Coleman who camped with many of us at airstreameri during BM last year.

Yikes! Sounds like a crowd at Madras. Guess I will head further west for the eclipse.

Madras crowd, eclipse!

We are being told in Bend that the expectation of 200,000 is not unrealistic! Bend to Madras traffic, 42 miles, 8-10 hours!!!!!!!!!! Bend to Redmond, 15 miles, 4-5 hours! Parts of the hospital, rehab therapy etc. will be closed! If you come, be prepared!

3rd party tickets

My wife and I are considering ending our year long full time adventure at BM2017. We hope you will all welcome us burner newbies.

A friend suggested VividSeats as a safe source for buying tickets. Anyone have experience with buying BM tickets through resellers?

Also, are the vehicle passes all the same or do we need to buy a certain type of vehicle pass for the car and trailer?

That sounds like a spectacular way to end a year long adventure! Burning Man is a place, a moment in time, unlike anything else.

My own experience with tickets bought through resellers comes mostly from working at the Gate at Burning Man and seeing them come up as "cancelled" on the scanner. If the Burning Man org learns that someone is selling their tickets for higher than face value, those tickets will be cancelled. I have also had to refuse entry to people who bought tickets off a scalper but who were savvy enough to check the Burning Man page for cancelled ticket numbers. Unfortunately, those tickets were cancelled sometime later, possibly by the seller claiming them as "undelivered." Seller gets new tickets shipped, buyer loses out.

That being said, there are scrupulous people whose plans change, often at the very last minute, who are willing and able to sell tickets at face value (plus service fees they've paid). Put the word out among any friends who may have Burning Man connections, and try to be sure that you can trace the path of any tickets from the original buyer to you. Face value for a ticket is $425 unless they bought it at one of the earlier, premium price sales.

All vehicle passes are the same, whether you are a motorcycle or a motorhome, or a truck and a trailer. Face value for a vehicle pass is $80. Remember to stick it on the inside of the lower left corner of the windshield before you pull up to the front of the gate line. Your Gate volunteer will thank you for it.

I wish you the very best of luck.
