Re: 2017 BLM Inspection Info Delay

The post yesterday on the moop map blog says they are looking forward to the inspection. Patience...... Hi Ratty. WADR, the post was written weeks ago and just got published on the BRC Journal on Nov 2. The coordinated MOOP sweep was completed on Sept 23. and in his writing about that day, Slim ind...

Re: 2017 BLM Inspection Info Delay

Thank you. It would be more of a surprise if we hadn't passed given how good the map has looked during the process. The lag in reporting this by BMORG makes no sense to me whatsoever.

Well hey! We got an update! Um... wait... no it's just a repeat of the same stuff we've been hearing all year with no new info on this year at all. Really?

Re: 2017 BLM Inspection Info Delay

Politics and regime change notwithstanding, in Slim's last accounting on Day 6 of the MOOP sweep by Resto on Sept 23 , he indicated they had about a week left in which to sweep other areas of the city. In my mind, that leads me to believe that the BLM inspection was scheduled for around the 1st of O...

2017 BLM Inspection Info Delay

I'm a little puzzled by the lack of any mention here on eplaya about the substantial delay in releasing BLM Inspection info from this year. In 2016, the BLM Inspection took place in the first week of October and is shown to have been delayed a day by weather. We were told those results on October 7 ...

Re: Old and Cynical

I watched a couple of DPW / BMORG vehicles pass thru the blockade with little challenge and also saw a few attendees just plow thru it, although they were jeered at severely. It was good, light-hearted playa theatre done correctly. Most people were a bit befuddled by it but for the most part played ...

Re: Hard time adjusting back to default world

Post Burn depression or at least a deep lull in one's emotional state is very normal. Even after a number of years in a row of going and knowing it's coming... the depression and "postpartum" anxiety is very real for me, some years far worse than others. Without you so much as saying it, i...

Re: eBikes and Burners who Ride them

I will admit to being a rather sedentary (lazy) individual when it comes to physical exercise. Three years ago I bought one of the first Sondors electric bikes when the offer came up on GoFundMe (or whatever site it was). Pedaling a regular bicycle on the playa was never an easy endeavour for me, es...

I'm fortunate to have a good internal clock that is within 15-20 minutes most of the time, even on the playa. However, I do have some volunteer shifts that start at specific times, so we also have a small wall clock in our kitchen area. It was gifted to us by a camp friend a few years ago and has a ...

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...

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.
