I am not just some person living in your camp. I can be depended upon to help do my share to make the camp a success. Would...

hay TT120, I previously contacted many of the suppliers on the web and some have a good product while others not so good. I ask on here because I hope that if people liked what they have bought then it would be good to know that. Nothing like paying a bunch of money for something and then get some c...

Re: Plug & Play/Turnkey Camping

My simple input is 1) If you buy the tickets on the open market then you can do anything you want to with them. 2) You have no special privileges provided by the BORG than others then that is wonderful 3) Your camp mates are burners only if they experiences the same hardships as other camps 4) If yo...

Camp Medallions??

I was not sure where to post this but I am looking for a place to have camp medallions made. I know someone who can make straight metal ones but I like the ones made with metal and embedded enamels like they had for the French Quarter. Any help appreciated.

Re: Need Recommendation for Structure to Put our Tent in

first of all a good tight tent is best! But if that is not an option then go look at the "car ports" they sell at Costco. They seem to do a good job and aren't too expensive. Good Luck!

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

Re: Playa life after gastric bypass surgery?

I had this done several years ago and as some people mentioned you need to know how your body reacts to the surgery in order to know what you need on the Playa. But a few things that I learned was the following 1) Porta potties are a must - eat the wrong thing and you will need one very quickly 2) A...

Re: Damage to RVs?

I think that the ride out is th emost damaging to my vehicle because of the stop/starting and leaving windows open a little so the AC is not used. Not sure if you would have the same problem but would suggest leaving on Tuesday so you can drive right out and not spend 6 plus hours letting dust get in.
