30 Days of Burning Man – Day 18, Burning Man in the News
This year there is a possibility that there will be a much higher percentage of newbies heading to the desert so I thought I’d spend the 30 days before the gates open throwing out some information, some images and a little bit of wisdom, advice and snark about the place I love so much. These posts will be generally directed at Burning Man virgins but hopefully some of you old dogs out there will contribute through comments or get some enjoyment out of them as well. So here we go. . I’ll include at least one photo from Burning Man each day and once a week I’ll do nothing but photos. I hope the posts are sometimes helpful and also enjoyable, enjoy ~ ZD Blue
Burning Man in the news and a quick ticket update, tonight links to recent Burning Man news items, enjoy ~ ZD Blue
Did a quick ticket scan tonight, first for tickets on Craigslist in Sacramento over 20 posts with tickets ranging from trade to $200 to $500 so some over selling but lots of available fair priced tickets.
Ebay is less attractive about 55 auctions a few that at the moment would be great deals but most are overpriced.
The best and safest process is through eplaya and there are a ton of tickets there http://eplaya.burningman.com/viewforum.php?f=291&sid=5386ebeebf0616ad7ee4a3a299034fe3
Finally massive number of tickets available on Craigslist in the SF Bay area across the price spectrum but happily a lot of really reasonably priced tickets.

A piece interviewing a restaurateur from NYC about Burning Man, a beautiful illustration of how horrible most of the main stream media cover Burning Man, either we’re all drunk and stoned or this is a dusty happy camping trip where you can “hop on a rolling Tiki Bar to go wherever you want” enjoy. http://travel.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/travel/dont-miss-the-tiki-bar-at-burning-man.html
