Re: HELP! Is man alive who was on ground 4:30 plaza Wednesday night???

From what I understand, confidentiality laws would prevent any actual first responder from giving out info on this, so the only way you are likely to hear anything is if it makes the news or the official report from the BMorg. I encountered a similar situation a few years back with an unconscious ma...

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

Hiya Bar Peeps! Defaultia has claimed me already as I sit here at work already on the next project. Considering BM is technically my vacation, I guess having to be right back at work the next day after getting home isn't that surprising, but I sure could use a vacation after my vacation.

Re: Destiny Lounge 3D in 2017!

DL3D 2017 by Joe Sale.jpg Well, that's a wrap on 2017! This is going into the books as our most successful camp ever, even better than 2009 at 3:00 and Esplanade which has always been my benchmark year! Balls were Rocked, Free Blowjobs were dispensed, and many heads were spun in the Vortex! I hope ...

Condition of Gate Road by Exodus

I've seen it mentioned here and there but figured it deserves its own topic. The condition of Gate Road made it close to impassable by the time the event was over. It became an unbelievable obstacle course of deep craters and ruts and powdery dunes which hid it all from view. No need to worry about ...

Re: Likely temperature range for 2017?

I was told by one of the Center Camp Cafe leads during my shift that on Monday (right after opening) it was over 116 in the direct sun. I understand that would make it the hottest day ever during the event. I just know that it was brutally hot during our 3.5 days of build.

Re: What is your floor?

Not too bad unless it rains... then it's like living on a slip and slide and someone WILL fall and hurt ...

Re: messy carpet edges? help!

We lay out our carpet pieces, vacuum whatever off of them, then use 4" duct tape on the edges. Then stomp. It's worked very well for us for awhile now.

Re: Needed: VR FORTLIFT

As a registered art car, I believe you can contact Heavy Equipment and get some assistance from them. I am unfamiliar with the process but know that my artist friend gets the use of a big auger with operator each year. You have to make an appointment and then wait.

Re: Visit the Black Rock City Airport -- For a Gift Ride:

I was gifted a ride by Coyote a few years back. It was an amazing experience! Not only did we circle the city, but he needed to do a fuel run to Winnemucca, so we got a bit more than your average circle tour! And ice cream at the Winnemucca airport! it was truly one of my fondest playa experiences!
