Re: Sacramento Valley Decompression 2012- Burn the River 10/

The Burn The River Sacramento Region Decompression event was epic!

(If you were there, you knew you were in the right place Saturday evening.)

We had perfect weather in a beautiful, pastoral site near the Sacramento River.

Re: Super 8 in Sparks--Free room

I guess the rib cook-off has gotten bigger over the years.

It used to be that you could drive down to Carson City and find lots of reasonably priced rooms.

No longer (at least, according to Expedia.)

Re: Super 8 in Sparks--Free room

I am not familiar with Hotwire.


We were using Expedia and could only find an expensive room in South Reno.

This was on Saturday night, though. As the clerk told us when we checked in: "This is a bad night to try to find a room."

I've had PVC joints break on me before. We used to build other PVC shade structures during the first few years out there. A friend showed me how to do the extended and glued T joints.

Nope, I use a carabiner. I use the inexpensive ones that you can get from Home Depot for about a buck work nicely. These are aluminum and not nearly as strong as the ~real~ ones used to hold rock climbers, but they don't need to be that strong. It doesn't take a huge 'binder to clip over the deflate...

Re: Monkey Hut question

I've been using monkeys huts for a few burn years. Every time, I try to add modifications that will improve the shelter by making it sturdier. I dispensed with using standard PVC joint pieces altogether. I'll use a 3-4 foot length of PVC tubing that'll contain the rib lengths. Also, to connect the r...

Tentatively, I'd say that this is a good candidate spot for the Jan 19th Foothills Sacramento Cultural Meet-Up.
