Intersection street signs

Can anyone say definitively (and maybe verify photographically) how many pairs of painted street signs are at each intersection? Is it one pair, or two?

Re: Inverter vs Generator

Suspended Animation uses both! We have an inverter, and charge it with our generator. The advantage is that we can run the generator full force into the inverter to charge it, then trickle power off the inverter for the rest of the day. This means we don't run the genny 24/7 just to power a string ...

Re: Kids & Teenagers at Burning Man

Back in 2007 I got hit with a with a serious sinus infection just as we got to the playa, and ended up spending the first several days in the med tent. As such, I got to witness a long string of things that went anywhere from mildly to seriously wrong. The most sobering of these things -- worse than...

We waited in line for 45 minutes one night and gave up. Hope our timing is better this year. Yeah, bondage rides are insanely popular. The secret to getting in the air is this: show up early and be first on the list; or just stop by camp to say hi during our "off" hours and see if someone wants to ...

This year's theme is spot on for us, so you can expect some breathtaking rites of passage to be crafted. We are also open to new camp members. A couple of things to consider before jumping on b...

Bondage rides go fast, I tell ya. There are three ways to get into the air:

1. Show up early and be first in line.
2. Stop by to visit when there's not an event running and charm the socks off a rigger.
3. Bribes.

Combinations of options 2 and 3 are particularly effective. Or so I hear.

The pattern I'm seeing here is: 1. Theme camps who provide amenities, and expect contribution/cash. 2. Theme camps who provide no amenities, and expect self reliance. We're definitely of the first variety. We have shade for the residential tents, showers, kitchen, 24/7 power, hammock farm. On the ot...

Metrics for placement

Someone said much earlier upstream that the metric was likely ratio of interactivity to number of people and space needed. Some of the camps that didn't get placed had neat ideas, but wayyyy too many people. A 50x50 shade structure with a bamboo dance floor sounds awesome, but 130 people to build an...
