Is Skinny Kitty gonna be around again this year (sorry, too lazy to navigate to another page to check) and if so will there be a homebrew tasting going on? A few months ago I had plans to bring out 20 or 30 gallons of homebrew, but alas I had a dome and tall bike to finish and [accidentally] drank m...

I'm really excited to go I 80 just so I can see the Bonneville Salt Flats. Such a huge open space of nothingness really appeals to me for some reason. Plus I've gotta haul ass to get back to Georgia so the interstate is the way to go for me. We'll be stopping in Denver as well. Look for the Dusty as...

yup, seems to be true. The shits really hit the fan for tfus. I'll still be there though. It should be a good time regardless of whether or not it's an 'official' burn. I am still a little bummed that it is 21+ now. I feel like that might have been on of the biggest reasons that the 'official' statu...

Just a heads up while we are talking about gasoline, don't forget to buy (if you don't have one already) a locking gas cap for your vehicle while on the Playa and you might want to consider locking up your spare gas cans as well. Over the past couple years, we have caught people trying to steal gas...

worst case scenario is that you have to stand by the exodus line with a cardboard sign that says "Ride to Reno?" I'd say at least 3/5ths of the people will be passing through Reno on their way home. You'll def. get a ride.

Mythbusters proved that drafting does work. They were able to boost economy by ~40%. The problem was that to get that you had to be 10 feet behind the big rig, which is rather unsafe. But even at 100 feet you do get some benefit. I watched this episode over the weekend. I was amazed that even at 10...

Yeah, gas is going to rape me. ATL to BRC and back will cost around $1300 assuming gas stays around $4.50. Suck. But that will be split between 7 people (hopefully, if you need a ride let me know) so it will be manageable.

used billboard vinyl is your best bet i think. It will require some creative cutting to cover a dome that big, but its cheap (or free). Google "Outdoor Advertising" for whatever area you are in and start sending out emails asking very nicely what they do w/ their used vinyls. I sent out 5 or 6 email...

I'm going to be using billboard vinyl for my dome this year.

Then I'll just use some clear packing tape to cover the seam. keeps it [rel...

last year i had a flight to catch in SFO early on Monday so we decided to play it safe and leave early Sunday. We left at 8am and were out of the gate in less than an hour I'd say.

It was sad not to see the temple burn, but it was also nice knowing that I would for sure make my flight.

Another dome covering question/thread

So heres the deal. I've got plenty of used billboard vinyl to use to make a covering for a 3v 5/8 24' diameter dome. I can't decide which direction to go for the cover though. Do I focus on simply providing the best shade possible, or do I make a cover that is as wind/dust/rain proof as possible? Th...
