For males "shirtcocking" is a definite NO NO! Take the shirt off and apply sunscreen liberally! Or... Cover up yer penis!

Re: Keeping an air-cooled vehicles engine cool in traffic??

O.K. This is probably going to go against ALL the "stuff" you've been hearing about the VW air-cooled engines but hear me out... Volkswagen did not and would not, build an engine that would overheat in STOCK form. These engines have been around for a good long while and have been operating all over ...

Re: Birgin Camp 2014

Hey Divreon, You've been getting a LOT of really good suggestions for your camp. I've been going since 96 and worked DPW for 4 years so I'll throw in my 2 cents worth; Probably THE single most important thing for everyone attending to do is to READ AND HEED THE SURVIVAL GUIDE!

Car care

What's probably far more important is prepping your car BEFORE you leave for the Playa... As for afterwards? Sure it'll be dusty as all get out but unless it's been run extensively while your at the event I wouldn't worry about changing out filters/oil till you get home. DPW auto shop blows out air ...

Car Care

Be sure to overload your 40 year old vehicle the you haven't performed any work on in the last 20 years. Oh and be sure the tires are under-inflated, don't bother to check the oil or other fluids. And if you're a die hard dead head with an old air cooled hippie bus? It's perfectly O.K. to run the th...

There's a LOT of us here (Keys) that wait till the storms get closer so we can see where they're actually going to be headed.
