Re: any minimalists?

Conceptually the Playa can support a true minimalist spirit. After survival (including a bike) take off into the deep open playa and experience the simplisty of the vastest flattest nothingness you will ever know. Go naked if you wish ( sunscreen and water recommended.)

Re: Building a Quadricycle

After seeing how much fun I had on my modified e-trike one year, my Fearless leader made for himself a e-quad mostly using PVC for him and his wife. It was easier than welding and tore down for transport to the playa.

Re: I'm a Dead Horse!...Beat Me!

How come tickets cost more this year? You would think with more people coming to share the expense of building the Man the price would be coming down. How many years will they be setting up the same Center Camp? Besides aren't we all volunteers? They should pay us to go out on that stinking BLM dese...

Re: electric bike recommendations

My first year on the playa with an electric trike it was a real eye catcher. I was warned not to get a ticket at warp speed. Made getting to the outer rim a breeze.

Re: How to spot undercover cops?

Tell somebody asking for drugs that you won't do that unless they have sex with you twice to prove they are not a cop. If that line works use their handcuffs and runaway.

Trike love. PU of the playa. Fantastic art platform.

I bring my Schwin Meridian every year. It has been my best playa friend. I have done so much with it. Down side they are more difficult to transport to BRC.

Re: Playa Trike: second thoughts

My experience with emotors on the playa have been mixed. When they work they are a dream but they also break alot, even in the default world. But then my etrike becomes just a trike. Trikes rock but the are bulky getting to the playa. I usually bring a spare bike for fast potty runs.
