I'm Lemonhead, but I try to see Fireball's point of view too. I try not to talk candy in public, it gets really heated pretty quickly. I mean seriously, just because someone refuses to release any more than the last 2 years of candy records and now suddenly everyone suspects them of being licorice. ...

I saw one Cruise America RV at BMan with a really clever cover-up: This particular RV had the spectacular scenic landscape shot with the wholesome family smiling broadly in the foreground. The renters had taped out speech bubbles above each of their heads and gave each wholesome family member a very...

I'm throwing this one in here for the educational value it may hold: I posted similar in the "Pulsing" threads (pulsing, as in what was supposed to be happening during Exodus, versus what happens out on the open Playa, in the dark, er, yeah, that other stuff... :oops: ) I noticed quite a few people ...

Walking down a street, came upon an ice-cream van playing the tinny Mario Bros soundtrack with a woman in a bikini on top with a bull-horn shouting at the crowd: "Get yer fuckin popsicles, people! Its fuckin hot out! Come over and get your fuckin popsicles!"

I think of myself as an observer. Its sort of who I am and how I interact with the world and people around me. I'm not really outgoing, but I am up for trying new things. I participate, but I'm not a ring leader, or even very noticeable. I've been to Burning Man since the Green Man got torched in 20...
Left camp (7:45 & I) at 9:30am on Monday. Hit the pavement pretty much 6 hours later. Worst time in 4 burns, but it sounds like we did pretty good compared to others! :shock: Gotta admit some guilt to changing lanes, BUT it was caused by an extenuating circumstance: People in front of me (in my lane...
So I'm conflicted on the whole pulsing thing: Positive: I like how you can "expect" to sit for a while without moving. Makes me feel fine about getting out of the car, going to the potty, talking with others, etc. Negative: I really don't like how some people completely blow off the fact that we are...

I'm coming from Bend, so I hook up with the route in Klamath Falls. There's a great local chain called Big R there that has a ton of good things for outdoors. It started as a ranching store, but has expanded. Its right off the main road through town, so its really easy. On the left toward the south ...

Ok, this is the inner Boy Scout in me that grew up out here in the dry western states; We have this season out here called "Fire Season", and no, Burning Man did not start it. The reason we have a season called Fire Season is because our landscape is very flammable. As in, very easy to catch fire. C...

I fractured 2 toes about 3 weeks ago. Not much you can do about fractured toes, and a much simpler break than breaking your foot. (way to go, btw... :roll: ) At this point, they are still pretty sensitive, but doing ok. You may be healed enough for it to be an annoyance and something you'll need to ...

Hi all, I followed this thread many years ago and came up with my own evaporator design based on information I gleaned here. I built my design and have taken it to the playa 2 years in a row and it seems to perform pretty well. Here's what I built: http://www.ambientarch.com/Evaporator.jpg This pict...
If I could shout it from the mountain, I'd encourage everyone to degrease their bike chains before coming to the playa, and leave the chain naked while out there. Maybe we can get that into the Survival Guide. Less oil, less chance of pollution on the playa. I figured out the water thing the first t...

Hey BlackBox, Last year was my first year, and I heard before going that there wouldn't be an established bike fix-it station. I decided to bring my own tools, having worked in previous incarnations as a bike mechanic. I decided my gift would be rouge bike fixings, stealth chain lubes and random act...
