It's A Buyer's Market - For Burning Man Tickets

KNSD Channel 7 in San Diego is reporting a glut of Burning Man tickets on the secondary market as virgins suddenly are faced with the reality of hard work in a hot, dusty desert. Woo-hoo! More dust for me!

eBay has 64 listed as I write. There are many where the sellers are asking laughably high prices, but the highest price actually bid is $403.39 + 30.25 shipping.

Craigslist Reno has 222 listings, but some of those are people looking to buy a ticket. There's one asking $800, but there's one who will sell you a ticket for $200 and pick you up along I-80 east of Reno and drive you to the playa for free! He expects to be in Lincoln, Nebraska, tonight (originating in Toronto), so if you are in Des Moines you might be able to catch up to him if you hurry.

Craigslist Los Angeles has 408 listings, and a few of those are seeking a ticket. 49 of those entries were posted today. One is asking only $150.

Sacramento: 49 listings. Several are seeking.

Las Vegas - 61 listings.

Kansas City, Missouri? One ticket. Yes, them Kansas Citians love them their Burning Man and they wouldn't give up their tickets, no sir.

Boston - 6 tickets for sale.

And at the Mother Ship herself? One-thousand listings in the San Francisco Bay area! All those people want to stay and see what the city is like without Burners. One supposed hipster (or is he just hipster-bait?) in Mountain View is offering ten cases of PBR for a ticket (or $150).
