ONLY BUY TIX in PERSON or VIA BM instructions and CHECK 2013 VOIDED TICKETS LIST. I do wish BM would Alphebitize this list. Because Most CellPhones do not have a CTRL FIND Fcn. And if the person selling the ticket is giving their SN out willie nillie that increases the chances that BM will VOID the ticket. So it would appear cleaner if you just Check the SN the MINUTE before you buy, with phone in hand.

GOLD Burning Man
The good, the bad, the ugly, the amazing, the mind blowing, the life changing and the everything in between. 
Grade: A+   Burning Man is arguably the most amazing party on the planet
Music: C-  “wamp-wamp, wamp-wamp.”  It’s ironic that such a creative festival lacks musical diversity. 
Location: C+  Dust storms, high desert sun without shade.  The dry lake bed desert has its own beauty.
Organization: A Even with some ticket issues, they provide a good infrastructure for Nevada’s 5th largest city for a week.
Pros: It’s Burning Man!!
Cons:  The expensive ticket price is the just the tip of the iceberg for many, dust storms, heat, the collective chaos of 50,000+ people!
When: the week up through Labor Day weekend        Where: Black Rock Desert, NV

Burning Man Infographic
The history of Burning Man has always been a complex entity that has survived, nay, mutated over the years. And because of this, it has grown rapidly since its humble beginnings of a simple gathering on a beach.
The infographic poster shows only a small portion of what Burning Man is. By no means do mere numbers even begin to show a complete picture, as that is a history of stories, experiences, and individual tales.
I was recently interviewed by Jordan Salinger from the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association about this inforgraphic:
“For some it is a yearly spiritual revival providing an emotionally charged respite from reality; for others it simply means they are able to eat brunch without standing in line. The mark left by Burning Man on San Franciscans and this city is undoubtedly immense, but is hard to truly measure. The same can be said about the impact on Black Rock City, Burning Man’s yearly home, but this stunning infographic provides an all-encompassing perspective on the event.” by: Burning Man

Plan your arrival so that you show up at the Gate after the 6pm opening. We cannot allow people who show up early to wait in town (see #1 above). When the Gate opens, we give priority to those who are coming off the highway....those who showed up on time. This means that if you show up early and we have to stage you somewhere, you will get in later than if you showed up on time.

Beware of NARCS / undercover cops asking you for drugs

Do you want to learn more about your civil rights — both in Black Rock City and the default world? Stop by the Liberty Lounge from 2 PM to 6 PM daily where the ACLU of Nevada will be available to answer your questions. 
Know Your Rights: The ACLU publishes a guide on What To Do If You're Stopped by Police on the ACLU website at:
Know Your Rights Videos: Flex Your Rights offers DVDs on how to behave if stopped by law enforcement on their website at: ... and free on YouTube here:
Please note, however, that the ACLU guide and the Flex Your Rights video are geared more for a law enforcement stop that could lead to an arrest; whereas most stops in Black Rock City are more about warnings and citations. Use common sense when deciding how to comport yourself.
If you were arrested or cited at Burning Man and are interested in better understanding your legal options, then Lawyers For Burners is a resource available to you. LFB is run by volunteers in the Burning Man community to help you better understand how to navigate your options. 
To: Silicon Village , South Bay CORE 
Subject: [SiliconVillage] Early Arrivals: ROAD WORK near Snoopy Rock,	hywy 447
NDOT are doing some road works to the repair the damages to the 
verges on a 20m section of the 447 about 20 miles north of Nixon  near Snoopy Rock.
Please pass on to folks that these work may mean the road is  reduced down to a single lane -
 Please drive slowly and carefully -- the verges are very soft / non 
existent after being washed away - and allow extra time for your journey.
The works will stop Wednesday before the event and resume post 
event, but the roads will still be narrow and dangerous....
Be careful - it's an (asphalt) jungle out there.....
