Re: Lighting yourself-help!

Hey all! The season for cheap lights is fast approaching! . . . I love the after-Christmas sales. Last year I was picking up copper wire strands for 50 cents each! (I'll admit that's even cheaper than can usually be expected.) They lasted through 2 weeks of being wrapped around my bike frame, and ma...

Re: Time on the Playa.

I have a battery powered alarm clock ($10) out there that I bought in the Klamath Falls Fred Meyer in 2011. Most of my volunteer shifts start at 7:30am, so I have to get up at 6:45am.

On nights before shifts, I carry either a pocket watch or phone so I get back to camp on time to sleep.

Re: Bikes on the Playa

I've never ridden a fat tire bike, although I certainly would. Cruiser bikes, well-maintained, do fine most of the time. Fat tires are even better, obviously, but if you can't get hold of 'em, there's no need to despair. But as mentioned, even new bikes come with popped innertubes sometimes. Always ...

Re: A solution to suicides (at the man burns/ temple burns)

They'll probably just add some portable security/pool safety fences to slow down and corral the runners so they can be caught with fewer people. It's about as much as can be done as a determined runner will eventually be able to bypass obstacles. The perimeter nearly caught the guy running around t...

True--if he died, it will eventually make the news/The AfterBurn report/etc.

No need to give up hope on this until you hear for sure. The odds are that he actually survived. Take heart!
