I thought LOF was excellent!! The gate guys were cool and super friendly! The greeters were awesome and sexy! DPW, Parkers, Rangers and Organizers really got it done! Everyone was BEAUIFUL! A lot of people put tons of work into their camps and art projects. There was a lot of different sound and eve...

The film link to, "Trouble At The Border"

Film "Trouble at The Border" http://videogasm.tv/video/play.php?vid=85 This film is a follow up to the thread "Was Anyone Harrassed At The Checker's Gate?" It is extra dramatic fiction! LOL! I personally think it's a funny flick. A few things to note are that to the best of my knowledge no PG&E or W...

Everyone, Through the generous act of gifting my economic loss is being restored. I appreciate that very much. I must say that the PG&E people did not knowingly take or use my stuff intentionally, nor did the Welcomers or Greeters. If any of them did, it was because the person / people that stole my...

I swear 7 o’clock was a main corridor for the police. There was a giant boombox art car parked off and on every day by at the end of 7 and Esplanade and there were like 3 BLM Ranger vehicles at one time just hanging around the art car? It was almost like they were harassing their car. Maybe they s...

Monday the dust storm and the back up of cars kind of ruined the greeting experience. It was just about impossible. I was going to go back and say hi to the greeters at their camp, but just didn't get there. The greeters are awesome! Hearing them say "welcome home," wow, priceless. LOL!

I do blame myself a lot more than 5%, but that is a diminishing figure. And I am letting it go, but to say nothing would make me feel like I was totally sayi...
