Re: Burning 2019-2028 Plan - Your input requested (long)

BB you Anarchist! I sadly agree on a philosophical level. BxB is not an issue of merit, it is an issue of commodification of the core obstacles to BM. It’s supposed to be real tough to go.

Re: In Tent Fans

Despite Lucky’s good fortunes, I’ll opine that a simple fan just converts the tent-oven into a forced-air-convection tent-oven.

i.e. you will cook even faster.

Nap outside tent during daytime. Plenty spots to pass out in the vastness of BM.

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

No way to answer that without inspection of your stock.

Can you clean them and inspect?

If you have a cement mixer, dump a bag of sand and tumble the bolts in there in bulk.

Once clean, make a call.

Phi-air, my local county provider doesn’t do NV so my example is in hindsight a bit off.

Cal star is part of Air Med Care network and also serves my local area in NorCal
