Re: 2018 Art Theme....Predictions / Suggestions

I'd say any time now, but keep in mind they haven't even been able to manage posting the MOOP Map journal entries. Not holding my breath.

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...

Re: Time on the Playa.

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 ...

Re: Fuel Containment

I'll reopen this one, since the thread got linked in a couple of places. Last year I found a 10' x 10' Ultra Absorbent Containment Tarp from a place called Spill 911. I put it in the bed of my utility trailer and create a pond enclosure with it using heavy duty clips and a couple of boards. It's ple...

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.

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.

We'll be in downtown LA tomorrow morning, Joshua Tree tomorrow evening thru Wednesday morning, and then in Reno Wednesday evening. If you can connect w...

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.

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!
