Re: 2018 One item a day for BM list

Yay. Heater and air conditioner fixed in my van. It broke because of excessive dust in the blower motor. How did that happen? Sewing like crazy to fix shade structure decor. Next up....Playa laundry. I can't be the only one that unpacks a bin of playa. I just fixed my van AC for the third time. Fir...

Re: Reselling or donating camping equipment?

The more we facilitate people being able to attend and not take care of their own shit, the more of this we create. Why the hell do people choose to fly to an event unable to carry in and out all their shit, to an event where that’s what you need to do? It's a fabulous question. I think the cat is ...

Re: Camping cooking equipment rental in Reno?

I think things that go to the playa generally are only used again on the playa, so you won't find many that want to send camping gear out there. That being said - maybe playa pads has something? might be overkill for your needs, but they do have a basic set up.

Check out playa pads. A search on google will pull it up. Burners with an outfit in Reno that rents the basics. Looks like it all fits in a standard sized rental. Includes bikes. I think this could be a great option for you. They take the stuff back after you've used it and recycle it for another bu...

Baked potatoes! Can be topped with anything out of the cooler! Polenta with tomato sauce. I also buy take out and seal a big meal into two servings. I did learn - never seal grapes. They get squished and flat. No good.

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

Questions: I've been told I need "foot pads." The Black Rock Hardware posts were designed to not need foot pads. However, even if the head of the lag screw can fit into the pipe, you would lose the holding power of a 16" lag screw as about 5" of it would be above ground. Therefore, your question ab...

Re: dgs ticketing minimum purchase question

My opinion is that your camp was allocated a DGS which gives you the code to buy two tickets and vehicle sticker. That is what you should do. We received a few codes and one of our campers will be selling the second ticket to a campmate. That is how we are covering all our peeps. We don't see it as ...

The playa was so forgiving this year you could pull your rebar out with ease. I guess not where I was camped (5:15 J). Monday on a walk to the JOTS I came across a man using all his energy to pound rebar in every direction to get it loose. I asked if he had vice grips, he sheepishly told me "no." I...
