BRCPO9 - PO9 in the 9 o'clock plaza

Burning Man 2019 is *happening*

Want to be a Postie? Get in touch. Paid camp-fees, or work-trade prior to DGS, is how you get guaranteed tickets. If you're at BM2018, come help us load or MOOP, and get considered for 2019. If you get tickets in the lottery, and just need some camping space let's talk.

The following #USPS addressing info for #BlackRockCity is current for #BurningMan2019. Please don't send mail until mid-August, or it may be returned to sender.

#PO9 is the box holder, and with #C3PO and #POatSix (PO@6) we continue to do delivery of USPS mail to the playa (as we have been since before the old BRCPO stopped doing general delivery).

For info/links:

Name of Findable Recipient (real name and Burning Man Name is best)

Camp Name

Camp Address (be specific, is there a huge sign? intersections are 4 blocks; use 9:01 or 8:59 and man-side or mtn-side to differentiate (ie: 9 & F is a BAD address vs. 9:01 & F mtn-side) which block you mean)

[Optional: Build week: [day, eg: m,t,w,th,f,s,su] or Hold: [3PO, PO6, or PO9]]

c/o BRCPO9
PO BOX 149
Gerlach NV, 89412-0149

No drugs (federal land, federal LEOs don?t care what?s legal in NV)- doggos will be sniffing your stuff.

No camp/building supplies; eg: mail that shares space in a milk crate (a 12 inch cube is as large as we prefer) or a bike basket. Delivery persons go on foot and bike, not a mail truck.

(If you are desperate contact to make possible arrangements)

No signature confirmation items.

Parcels that are problems will be returned to sender.

International Burners:

These are the valid stamps to be able to send something from BRC to a non-US destination.

You might not be able to grab these at the Reno airport/shopping, if you don't plan ahead (post-offices are mostly open 9-5 Mon-Fri) as most retail outlets only stock domestic stamps. If you can avoid buying in Gerlach, that is best - as it is a small post-office (and may easily have exhausted its stocks of international stamps by the time you get there), and is only open part-time hours.

Make-up postage solutions can be found on the current postage rates page - be aware that these solutions will seriously eat into your writing space on a postcard (upper right-hand corner, flowing left) if you use them. Being prepared is best, order ahead. Second best option is to buy a pile of domestic stamps, and come trade with posties.

Posties running a window:

Here's some helpful information on the current postage rates, what international stamps look like (hint: print this one out), what recent postcard stamps look like (ie: stamps you'll likely run into). Why should you care? Because it's easy to make mistakes when you aren't aware of look-a-likes and other problems.

Postal Nerds / Philatists (and those who've never sent s-mail before):

We have a list of USPS resources, if you want to learn more about the mail.
