Well, it seems like it doesn’t matter too much to the Bureau of Land Management. They have postponed their inspection of the Burning Man site for 2 weeks due to a scheduling conflict.
Hello out there MOOP maniacs! Just a brief post to let you know that, due to a scheduling conflict, the Bureau of Land Management has postponed Burning Man’s site inspection (originally scheduled for today). It has been rescheduled for two weeks from now, on October 17.
The DPW Playa Restoration team has nonetheless finished their job and cleared the playing field, and the Black Rock Desert has been successfully restored to a pristine and featureless (and MOOP-free) state.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more results from how the Restoration season played out, and it will be my honor to share with you the results of the BLM inspection as soon as it happens. Barring any inclement weather or other force majeure, that ought to be two weeks from now.
Thanks for staying tuned! We’ll be serving up more MOOP Map results shortly.
If a whole bunch of MOOP shows up on the Playa in the next 2 weeks, Burning Man can point to their MOOP maps as a sign of how we left it. And it appears that there were some traces. It also appears that certain “special” areas of Burning Man, especially around First Camp, don’t get inspected.
