This is a quote from the instructions that came with the paints I bought: "Paint has no SPF value and in fact, the black and other dark colors can amplify UV rays.

Whaddya think? I'm hoping it will make your average tent a whole lot cooler.
Hmm. That's either genius or it will make your tent do its best impression of a baked potato. I'm curious to hear about your results!

Dumped some more money into our unfriendly local big box store this weekend. The only things left on the "to buy" list are AAA batteries, a sheet of plywood, and some random refrigerated items that I'll buy in Reno.

4. Act annoyed and inconvenienced that there is a queue for body painting.

I'd be as vague as possible: "going camping in Nevada with friends." I don't see why it would be a problem if you don't turn it into one. :)

Out of curiosity, is New Orleans off limits to staff? I only got to go once when I was at Keesler because I was a lowly student, not to be trusted.

One thing I learned in the Marine Corps is "it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission."

Are you a student or staff at Keesler?

Orchid, Emily, all of you are amazing gifted. Thanks for sharing! Actually it's just plain old practice and hard work that does it for me FaeTora. I think most humans are gifted in some unique way.

I've been taking spinning classes - not so much to build up strength or endurance, more to get my butt used to sitting on a bike seat. It's just an added bonus that it's also good for me. :)

One cause of the bronchitis that goes around post BM could be legionella. If people keep water for showers and misters in barrels that can be exposed to playa dust, legionalla will get in there and thrive. Swamp coolers are also a prime source of it.
