Re: Rest In Peace

It was a bad day yesterday. Big fan of Tom Petty. Friend was in Vegas (but she's ok). And just Vegas. WTF is wrong with people and this country?

Re: Make Us Jealous

It was hot as hell during the day. Like, can't move from your chair, risk heat exhaustion/stroke by moving about hot. Most of our camp sat in the shade with misting bottles waiting for the sun to go down all day. Don't ever remember a burn so hot and this was my 12th. First time I ever left early to...

Re: 2017 Exodus: Traffic, stories, etc.

I left yesterday around sunset. No traffic, but saw the Tohakum2 fire burning in the mountains on 447. Eerie. There's a fire camp near Snoopy Rock and a lot of staging in Nixon.

Hearing the news of the suicide, I'm glad I left before the burn.

Re: If you 'Bring It' and will never have a fundraiser tell us about it.

Retrofrolic is self funded, with the exception that we started doing camp-outs during the year to a) use the stuff more than once a year and b) introduce others that might not burn to our brand of kinky fun. The camp outs cover expenses of the campouts and hopefully a bit more so we can replace or a...

Re: Mistakes were made and accidents happened.

Three members of our camp needed the Imodium too; one at the beginning of the week, one left Monday night because of it (was going to stay through Tuesday strike) and the third got hit right after we left the playa. We did have Imodium though.
