Re: In Tent Fans

I’ve used an O2 COOL brand fan before. It uses 8 D batts but works pretty good Met too! I have two 10" O2 Cool Fans, and I like them a lot. About $20 at Home Depot and Amazon. One of them is older (6 or 7 years old?) and requires a tiny tiny screwdriver to get into it, so if anyone orders one, I de...

Re: SOS HELP A SISTER OUT

What THEY said. Even a medical doctor on ePlaya would not want to give you medical advice without seeing you in person. See a professional. Tell them that you will be in a very dry climate, with highs of 100F+ (although next week looks like mid-90's, but I haven't looked further) and lows in the 50'...

Re: How to know if someone has tickets in will call?

Yes. Both of you would need Ticketfly accounts, and to meet in person. The transfer (instructions linked) happens very quickly and cannot be undone. If the transfer does not happen quickly, while you're together, it's probably not legit. Send the link to your seller so they know how it works, and wh...

Note that your driver and anyone else in the car would also need a WAP to be able to enter in early with you. Quite true. Work Access Pass covers a specific person; everyone in the car needs their own WAP. Contact your volunteer coordinator to see if they can help you. And make a post here: https:/...

Hey AtomicPanda, Welcome. You're no doubt still reeling over the loss of your son.

Re: PSA: Take Care of Your Feet Now.

If I remember correctly, the issue is cracks in the heel (or other places) can hold onto dust. So sanding the cracks down helps avoid the problem. :) Covering the feet is obviously safest . . . but if you can't resist occasionally padding around in flip-flops or sandals for an hour or two like Token...

If you genuinely want some flair, hit a thrift store or a ROSS or a TJ Maxx and get something sparkly that won't shed. Or sometimes a huge, wide scarf or useful shemagh can pull double-duty as a pretty accessory, so if you have a favorite color, get some practical stuff that's pretty. My first year ...
