Re: Connecting conduit

Re: Ticketless? Consider this...

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO SQUAW CREEK!

It is semi-private land from what I understand but the owner allows locals to camp and hunt there. Also a big fire hazard with just sage brush and not rideable with lava caps. This is a hoax / disgruntled person type of thing.

Well, it is partly my fault for not getting to see Birds of Prey or Psychotsky that I knew about and just bumming around at my camp (Hookahdome).

I am trusting that next year, being a Boom off-year, will have a dedicated psy camp. I am much too shy to approach art cars, lol.

I am really leaning towards some lost wax cast pieces. Have 3 possibilities how it will go but wouldn't it be cool to have some cast glass with some kind of laser or something shining through it at night...may have to make sure I don't start fires during the day though with the sun going through it :D
