The workings of the LLC are general opaque to me, but I cannot imagine they'd take on the liablity of continuing to associate with a volenteer who was behaving in such a way.

Yay, another unsolicited post full of opinions, even after I asked for concrete information and not opinions and advice. Is there anyone here who's not an egomaniac? I can see that.

How Do You Feel About Go-Peds / Gas Scooters?

I posted this on the Tribe and thought I'd add it here as well: I'm all for freedom and mobility, I really am; but I can't understand why gas scooters are still allowed to freely roam Black Rock City. The City is dusty (and noisy) enough without scooters quickly zipping about, often without regard f...

Johnny NOT on the Spot

I arrived in Lamplighter Village on Saturday, August 27th. It was early enough that the JOTS were at a low volume of usage. Since I'm a 'larger guy' I prefer to use the larger (condo) unit on the end for my 'sit down' business. When I approached the empty bank of JOTS near our Village, I saw that th...
