time to stoke the fires
Since I've heard through the lines that a bunch of furs are at least considering BM this year, first, remember:
Tickets go on sale Jan 17th at 10Am PST. 195 bucks for the first 10K tix sold this year, then 225 for the next 10K.
So who's got a date in the desert in 229 days?
In other news, go to Tripres.com if you're interested in staying a night in Reno after the burn. For those of us traveling across country, it's nice to unwind at a casino-hotel for an evening, hit the ubercheap all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant Sushi Boat in Reno, and relax before heading back to reality. I've got a reservation at the Sands in Reno for 36 bucks (46 with taxes) for Monday (labor day) night. Also, if you want a day in Reno going out, the Sands is the same price for a Sunday night stay. Sat night is more expensive. I'm still arranging when I arrive, which will either be Sat or Sun, so I may be at the Sands, maybe not. If not, check out the Travellodge by the airport. It's 59.99 for a regular room, 69.99 for a kitchenette for Sat night, cheapest in the Reno area that I've found.
Another thing, to avoid Exodus traffic on Monday, what some of my friends did in 2005, we packed everything up Sunday during the day, then went to the temple burn, then left immediately after. We got to Fernley (right at the highway) and stayed at the Motel 6 there. Thats around 60 bucks for the evening. This lets you get up Monday, have breakfast in Fernley, shower, and liesurely head back to Reno without 8 hours of bumper to bumper hell.
Hope any of this helps!
