Without getting into the whole "Don't stop on the TWO LANE ROAD with 20,000 cars going back to Reno at the same time" debate, or "there is no place safe to stop on 447" debate once again. Well, and the part about self reliance thing...

Burners aren't that much of a market, apparently, except for pot-growing equipment.

This stunt has opened the door for other large companies, with much larger advertising budgets than Advanced has, to follow their lead. Not really.

there was garbage all over the place, some still in bags, some blowing around the side of the road. There were water bottles, pillows, tarps...all kinds of things that weren't secured properly- all the way to 80 and beyond. No better or worse than last year. Still bad. That really sucks.

A bit of thread drift... Had to stay home this year. I am wondering how the trash on the road situation was this year? In years past, the trash on 447 has really bummed me out. It really looks bad for the event. Plus, what is the point of LNT to just to spread a 100 mile trail of garbage from BRC to...

I have found that getting away from the inverter is the best thing one can do. Inverters are far more inefficient than you can really imagine. Most things that run on AC actually convert the AC to DC anyway. So in effect you are starting with DC converting to AC only to convert back to DC. That’s re...

Go with these guys

If you are looking into getting helium delivered call Norco gas supply in Winnemucca (775) 623-2200. We had 10 tanks delivered for $9 to our camp in 2001. They came out a few days later to pick up the empty tanks. It has been a few years but see if Jay is still there. He made both trips and is a pre...

For daytime illumination you may want to experiment with a fusion source; Make sure to keep it at a safe distance- Say, 93,000,000 miles or so.

When it was tied up on the ground, we used pretty heavy duty rebar pounded in the ground about 3.5'-4' at an angle. When it was out it was attached to a cart with a 75 lb deep cycle battery plus three people holding on to teathers at different points. The main teather was a 70' climbing rope with a ...

The company was Norco, 740 Fairgrounds Road Winnemucca, NV 89445. (775) 623-2200. Talk to Jay. He is super cool. In fact, if you do have them come out let me know we would like to see him again. I'm sure the prices have changed since, but we paid $73/tank. Each tank holds 219 cubic feet of helium. L...

The Blimp

In 2001 some friends and myself did this project. We ordered 10 tanks of helium and had it delivered right to us at camp. On saturday they came back out and picked up the empty tanks. I think it held around 1500 cubic feet of helium. There were a bunch of lights, noise making devices, and a really n...

Anyone setting up a repeater?

I'm a amateur radio operator and I'm wondering if there are going to be any other operators out there this year. Anyone setting up a repeater? I'll be bringing out my HT.

What if instead of building like structure it was just a long facade of a building. Like on a film set. Have the line in front wrap around so one couldn't see it was only a wall. Looking at the situation from the side one could not help but double over in laughter.

The gas pipe is it is a bit heavy and you might find something lighter, Though the handy issue with gaspipe is that it is threaded at each end so you can add 8' sections as needed. I don't ...
