It took a while for the DNS setting to work their way around the inter tubes. If you still only see 2010, try again and reload the page. Should have made its way around the world by now

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

The Yearbook peep will make it, and we are still committed that Don Norris (one of the main photographers) and his bride Kelly will be able to get legally married on the playa with their parents there. It may just be that BRYB is a smaller feature of a collaborative theme camp, possibly MalMart. We ...

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

Black Rock Yearbook is pretty questionable given that we have at best 15-20% of members ticketed, including most of the key members that transport equipment. We are in discussion with other theme camps about possibly joining forces, given that I have yet to find a theme camp that has enough people t...

Thanks for the advice on the playa plow stuart...looked good on paper. So what qualifies as "Fat Tires?" My bike is a recumbent that runs tires about 1 1/2 inches wide with a mild tread (not knobby) Just trying to see if I need a second set oof tires...would suck to be bikeless in case of sand dunes...

Dear mr Harvey, Thanks. Hey I think this year you should have a "Be Larry for a day" give away, where you pick somebody at random and then they run around with you seeing the city through your eyes. And they should get to wear your hat...OK maybe that is a bit far...maybe a remarkably similar hat

dust and such

I have been very blessed the past 2 years with amazing hard packed playa, I have not experienced the soft fluffy playa. Do you think it would work to build a small "playa plow" for the front of my bike? have it hover about 2 inches above the playa and push large dunes away... or is this a dumb idea?

During one of their sessions, he was taking her from behind...and suddenly he felt a presence. He turned his head to see another campmate of ours in a teddy bear outfit. H...

I am looking for the 2004 street names I am bringing back the Vision Quest Roulette wheel this year. For those who didn't see it last year, it is 3 wheels that you spin. One wheel has the radial streets (aka 5:00, 2:30, etc) The second wheel has the concentric streets (Esplanade, Dogma, Creed, Visio...
