Re: Alright, let's hear the best and worst from 2012

best: the pier II, the lizard art car was fanfuckingtabulous, the dusty tornadoes that shot out from the the man during the burn, the afterburn fire dancers and drummers scattered about (some gal in red flame leotards was the hottest thing with 2 hoops!), the temple double wedding we chanced upon wi...

Re: Playa Impulse Buys

i impulsively bought 4 very colorful underwire bras today even tho i never wear underwires much less colorful in the default world. too self conscious for pasties so this is as close as i can get to letting it all hang out (with a bit of a lift that is).

Sewed on a big blue butterfly shape from el wire on the back of my white jean jacket for my night time travels. So, if out on the playa, you see a blinking blue butterfly just flutter by and say hi!

Re: Camel bak, good or bad?

ditto on the bike basket idea. in 2009 i had a camelback and had to return to camp on too numerous occasions for a refill. last year we put a gallon jug on the bike and since we biked everywhere we had water on hand at all times. i guess it depends if you walk or bike most places.

Yeppers! I just left the ticket thing up to chance and hoped for the best. And the best happened for us so we are coming, pink fur and all. This is our one splurge for the year.

Last year we used the Coleman instant 4 person tent and it held up fine, but then again, last year didn't have record wind like some years. We also built a sturdy monkey hut that was the envy of the camp so that helped alot, I'm sure. Planning on taking them both again this year. Fingers crossed for...
