Ok all ya all... Just want to give everyone a heads up... Cops seem to be extra ticket happy this year. Leaving the playa last evening I saw 5 vehicles stopped between mile marker 9 on route 34 to Empire. Additionally please be very careful when traveling north on 447 at exactly mile marker 29. There is a very hidden taco stand that people can't see until they have just about passed it. This was the site of a very bad accident last year..... Safe journey all...
P.s. Please - no stupid unsafe passing... Is it really worth endangering yourself and others over arriving 20 seconds sooner just to sit in line at Empire / Gerlach or the Gate...

Rockstar Librarian Fan Page. Here you will find the most complete listing of DJ set times at )'( Burning Man. Copy Print and SHARE. Bring With.
This may be the BEST GIFT you can bring to playa. Printed copies of ROCKSTAR LIBRARIAN guide. (The next one, from Rockstar Librarian. Not this April 1 one silly.)
2nd best gift is to make a YOUTUBE VIDEO of how to COLATE the guide after you print it.
You a wallflower? Shy? trouble meeting peeps? bring this and you will meet TONS o PEEPs.
I been givin away stuff for decades and found that ROSES and CHOCOLATE are the quickest and easiest things to give away. Flowers not allowed in desert due to litter problems. So bring Chocolate and ROCKSTAR LIBRARIAN guides and your SHY DAYS will b a thing of the past.
Being on playa can be a physically and emotionally taxing experience ... learn how to navigate these perilous waters. This Emotional Survival Guide to Burning Man from Fest300's Chip Conley is a gem, and well worth a read.

Know your rights. This video is well worth the watch to get you through any police encounter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqMjMPlXzdA
Just a friendly reminder from last year. Law enforcement will use any excuse to pull you over once you are inside BRC. If you are pulled over, you will be searched with K9 units. From the time you leave the greeter station till you park and set up camp you are a target for law enforcement revenue. Do not drive over 5 MPH, make sure your license plate is not covered by bikes/hollahoopa or anything else. Have current registration tags and know your rights.
