BLM $$$ Grab at Burning Man::FAA holding Up EAA at OSH

BLM wants $1 million VIP compound from Burning Man

I suspect this story will appeal to many GenAv pilots.

The precedent has been set -- if there is a pot of money to rob, the government wants their hands in it. They want to be paid for the privilege of having their services which have already paid for in tax dollars. Just like the FAA holding up EAA at OSH, now the BLM wants Burning Man organizers to build them an exclusive $1 MM private VIP oasis in the desert, in addition to the $5 MM permit price tag.

Remember the Blackhawk Rule, If you see a Blackhawk or other government "Show of Force" on the ground when on short final, go away and come back later.
As long as we keep showing up they will too.
There are so many uncontrolled fields, and so much beautiful country to see why bother the Feds. Live and let live.
Remember, not all who wander, are lost.
