I will be interested to see if the response to this question grows... I just know that sometime in the future someone will bring up that 81% of people responded negatively towards the Green Man pavillion. That is from 34 total votes from 369 views of the topic. To break it down to ridiculous levels ...

Gee... I was able to fight in Thunderdome my very first year - 2005. All I did was volunteer to be a puller and help out in the Dome, and Lo and Behold, when I asked if I could fight a round, they had no problem. Is it Barter?

How many trashbags of post-cleanup moop do you expect to haul away after breaking camp? If your camp is leaving during night hours, what are your pla...

Remembering my first year... It isn't that the info isn't there... My first year I read every word on the site. I volunteered for DPW weekends (at the time I lived in Reno) and put in about 8-10 days of work. I also made contact with the then fledgling Apokiliptika and came in on the ground floor of...

I am glad I found this thread. My wife is in the long frustrating process of receiving her "official" diagnosis of MS, but we are all prepared. As she put it "We are past the point of making believe there is nothing wrong.." She has never been to a burn, and I attended in '05, just the one time. Cir...
