Re: Out of control scams.

Coworker managed to land two sets of two tickets off of Craiglist. One was a really kind gal. The other was a couple. He literally sat and ate pizza with the couple. All four were reported lost/stolen. This was after he scanned the QR code of all four. This was discovered by he and his three friends...

Box truck versus a ShiftPod+Monkey Hut

In short: would either of these be significantly cooler and/or less dusty? * a box truck with an AC * a Shiftpod with an AC under traditional monkey hut In long: we've enjoyed our yurt the last few years but decided the fate of enjoying future burns involves simplifying things a bit. The 2015 storms...

So it sounds like a monkey hut might be an optimal shade structure for it?

Will a Shiftpod2 fit inside the Costco Carport?

Title says it all. Will a Shiftpod2 fit inside the 10x20x Costco Carport? I can't seem to find footprint dimensions on the prior. The website says 12.5ft x 12.5ft, but I'm guessing that's from tip-to-tip diameter as opposed to wall-to-wall diameter. https://store.advancedsheltersystemsinc.com/shiftp...

Liquor on mutant vehicles

I'm unable to find rules pertaining to alcohol serving and/or consumption on a mutant vehicle. I've heard a few different opinions but all are yet to have a source. Are you allowed to serve and/or drink on a car (assuming 21+)? What if the driving cab is open or within arms-reach from where drinks a...

I watched someone jump off an artcar this year, buckle at the ankle and fall backwards. They bumped their back into the rear wheel as it passed and laughed it off.

Hi all, We're looking for a last-minute place to rent a 5,000lb tow-capacity truck in the Bay Area.

Anyone know who was spinning the Disorient bus about 30-60 minutes post-burn?
