Re: Nevada legalizes recreational marijuana

Discussion of banned substances is prohibited on ePlaya subjectively. It is up to the mods to delete these threads. When did that go into effect? Can you tell me where it’s listed in the TOS? I went looking and it only prohibits illegal activity. As far as I can tell, in the US of A, it remains leg...

Re: Wohnmobil sharing - sharing RV as Camp

This is a classic US vs Europe culture clash. In the US people want minimum 3 feet (1m) of personal space just to stand next to someone. In Europe, it’s 3 inches (~ 10cm) and you’re happy to even get that. Same with communal living. Let the kids have fun. I’ve run art-build camps where we had a RV a...

Re: NEEDED: Donuts for ART Thurs 8/30 (seriously)

Doughnut dough freezes very well.

It’s plenty easy to find a camp frying up bacon in obscene quantities.

And there are lots of shelf-stable doughnuts out there like Entenmann's and the likes.

Re: Nevada legalizes recreational marijuana

Yes, gate road is prime area where BLM issue citations and arrest people.

Yes they have dogs.

RGJ is not always accurate.

Arrest data is usually underreported.

On average, there is a surge of ~ 150 additional arrests in the county during Burning Man.

Don’t be that guy that goes to jail.

Re: Nevada legalizes recreational marijuana

Yeah, here is the insight:

BLM does not care about state canabis laws. They will issue federal citations and execute federal arrests.

Burning Man is held on land administered by the BLM.

Re: Wohnmobil sharing - sharing RV as Camp

If it works out for you, please bring a few tents as well.

Always good to have a few private spaces ready if it gets too cramped inside.

There are ~4000 low income tickets. Each comes with an optional vehicle pass. It is one of the things the BORG does well in designing the ticket structure. It encourages more expensive ticket-holding drivers to include them in carpooling. Some will have jobs that allow them to take time to particip...

PSA: Take Care of Your Feet Now.

To avoid foot problems on Playa, take care of them tootsies now.

Do it yourself with a ped-egg or get a pedicure. Your choice.

Invest in a cheap thick lotion and start slathering them puppies nightly.

Don’t fall victim to the dreaded Playa-Foot.
