OK. Held at the gate if purchased via net by 8/22, but not sold there.

No, you CANNOT buy tickets at the gate. I think I was pretty clear on that point. But you can wait until as late as August 22 to make your decision.

I suspect this is yet another aspect of life I will have to experience vicariously, but it is reassuring to know that if the option arises I can still buy tickets at the gate. The extra security and playa separation zone must add to the frisson of the whole thing.

I have probably been unclear.

It doesn't sell out (there is a vast amount of space available), but earlier tickets are less expensive. In previous years you could just drive up to the gate and buy a ticket, but that will be eliminated in 2008. Mail order ends June 30 and internet ticket sales end on August 22. Any tickets sold after July 31 will be held at the gate.

It's not at all easy to crash. You know those half-assed TSA security guards? Blackrock City doesn't employ anyone like that. There's a perimeter fence, good security, and some miles of desert playa for security. I suppose you could sneak in at night if you were willing to crawl on your belly across the playa and then make a quick jump over the fence. But for all I know they've got lasers and motion sensors out there. They would love to have stuff like that.

I am surprised they sell them so far in advance, does it sell out? I would have thought it easy to 'crash'.
