Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

Amongst other things, today I moved my license plate onto my hitch bike rack and installed the light (that comes on when the headlights do) over it. I am strangely proud of this. Dad helped, but switched the wires and I pointed out it actually did matter which wire goes where. Research paid off! Tom...

I don't know if this is the same thing, but a couple of recent posts aren't showing the jpg files, they just look like blank posts. I only know there are jpgs because I went to "quote" to figure out what was going on

Re: Ohio Virgin

What Token said, above. After posting, I realized I could have been clearer on that point. One year on Esplanade at dawn I watched a beautiful demonstration of "Fuck your Day!" that really brought me new understanding. If you want to decompress over coffee in October, drop me a PM... looks like I'll...

Re: Forum "new post" highlighting error

Hmmm... I'll try putting it another way (your reply doesn't necessarily make sense to me either, but I'm sure we'll get there!) Normally, when there is a new post in a subforum (while I'm logged in, anyway) the post, subforum name, and forum color all turn red instead of blue. For example, once this...

Hi Cahndi! Welcome to eplaya! Sounds like you are doing some great prep! (Obligatory reminder: Read the Survival Guide! Already read it? Great! Read it again!) Where in OH are you? I lived in Cincinnati last year, but moved back to the West Coast in June, and will be returning to the playa this year...

Re: If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest a place to rest etc free

Planning on stopping and staying with you at least one night, maybe two, depending on how crazy post-eclipse traffic is! I've had such a great time on my previous stop-overs. Once you gave me a schedule of the ISS fly-overs and last time I did a bit of hiking in the area. And then there's the unload...

Re: How much food?

I have generally brought one cooler and one tub (sorry, not sure on dimensions!) of foodstuff for 1-2 people for 1ish week on playa. Drinks are a different matter entirely. The cooler gets the veggies and other perishables; I believe in fresh vegetables out there and there are other threads that add...

Re: Stop Burning Man's Culture of Bicycle Thievery!!!

Okay, so if I'm reading this correctly, you ("tyrannical villain") TOOK bikes that WEREN'T YOURS and now you are planning on bringing them back and LEAVING them there?

How does this discourage either thievery or MOOP? Please correct me if I'm misunderstanding your post.

Re: PAGE TWO

You have got to be kidding me! If I had that kind of disposable income, very different things would be happening.

The best part though? The first option for contributing? "I am a DJ."

If I had a desk, well, that's where my head would be.
