Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! I'm sitting here in Winnemucca, Nevada...this has been the trip from hell. I didn't even get 5 miles from the house, I'm pulling out from putting air in my tires when this guy backs up and smacks the back end of my truck. Fortunately the truck is driveable and off we go.

I didn't even know this happened until I got stuck in Winnemucca and ended up staying overnight at a motel there. I turned on the news and KTVU 2 showed the man's face. He looked like he was smiling about it. If there's one good thing to come from this it will give participants a new found appreciat...

I'd like to see the party barges get reduced in number too. Usually in my experiences they fail to fulfill their requirement to be public transport, instead it becomes the defacto clique shuttle for the week. I'm also hopeful this year's green theme has lingering effects and that people will try to ...

On reservation land the drive ten mph over the speed limit thing does not apply. Driving one mph over the speed limit is enough to get you ticketed. Think ABSOLUTELY ZERO TOLERANCE. If anything drive slightly slower than the limit to compensate in case your speedometer is off. Also if you have a ra...
