Re: Organic Toilet Vendor Legit and OSS Approved?

FWIW. Searched ePlaya to see if I could find info on Portos since we had issues this year with ours and found this post. I believe they were a verified OSS vendor since I heard there was a public bank of them outside out 10:00 and our well known neighbors had a 2 Porto unit and was I able to experie...

Cheap GPS tracking device for bike so I can catch the fuckers who rip off bikes. I am convinced that mine was taken by professionals and not for a joy ride.

Re: Tarps vs. Shade cloth for flat roof structure

I lost track in your description, but it sounded like your walls are all shade cloth, so I don't see any wind pressure issues. You are going overkill with the extra lags in the feet. A lag in a foot only serves to keep the leg from walking in the wind, which is a useful function, but if the air pre...

Re: Tarps vs. Shade cloth for flat roof structure

Reading through the thread has now got me second guessing. This will be the first year that I am building a 20x20 1" emt flat roof canopy using a 20 x 20 heavy duty tarp. I am planning on using foot pads with 14" lag screws (pondering between 1 or 2 per foot pad) and then guying down (pondering stra...

Re: DJ Art Cars And Their Effect On Art

Our art car weaponized music on the playa by playing 80s soft rock. Nothing like some Air Supply or a track of Dreamweaver to clear out an area. Now this is an excellent idea. Some Wilson Phillips "Hold On" played in a loop never hurt anybody. How about the classic Lionel Richie "All Night Long" lo...

Re: Bad Behaviour on the Playa

One problem is that the percentage of Burgins has been alarmingly high. Not that I am against growth, but it takes veterans to set the example, and when 40+% of the people are new, they see "non-burny" behavior and assume it's normal and OK. By contrast, when 90% of the people are "with the program...

Of course, we never saw anyone chilling or dancing at their camp, it seemed like mostly personal entertainment for the ...
