Re: The 2017 Bah—Humbug! Thread, where we deal with Depression and Stuff

Yes! And even better than sunshine today .... ... Tomorrow ... we have a big event here in Clearlake where 150 bicycles will be given away to victims of the wildfires. We lost 134 homes just here in the city of Clearlake in the Sulphur Fire in October, plus many-many more in the county in the previo...

Re: Ohio virgin, hoping 2018 is my first

Welcome to ePlaya, Saraingreen! It sounds like you do indeed have the makings of a Burner. Ratty mentions a good point -- go light on your commitments in your first year. And remember to sleep.

Jaye, you are a Princess of generosity! I will PM my address.

And thanks for reminding me of the online version. I must make a note on my calendar about that.

The What Where When book

Am I the only one who reads the What Where When in mid-September? Eleven Burns, and I have never had time to look at it on Playa. Then in September, I kick myself for failing to know about something I would very much have wanted to participate in. But I can look for the same, or a similar, activity ...

Ah! Sham may have understood this better. The term " Jeep in tow " made me think you would tow the Jeep behind a larger motor vehicle. Jeepgal... do you mean that the Jeep is your transportation from the Bay Area to BRC -- you will be DRIVING IT, and towing the small trailer with the Jeep?...

You might, for example, go four-wheeling in the Jeep after Burning Man, before returning to the Bay Area. But regar...
