If it works then greywater disposal could be a fantastic gift to the camps around you ... I'd say it'd be a great idea to try it out!

I was thinking more of the line:

"Looks great in nightclubs, raves, Burning Man, music festivals, proms, and cocktail parties. It is tons of fun!"

Not sure where to post this, or whether it's even a problem, but I noticed this while looking for EL wire on ebay:

Actually, they didn't die ... I killed them with a butter knife, marinaded them in BBQ sauce & served them up to burners saying that it was unicorn meat!

Would you like to see my butter knife collection? I'm running out of unicorns ;)

If you are in the London area then there are plenty of pre-burn events going on, get yourself signed up to the London's Burning and Nowhere lists.

In my experience there is a fair amount of traffic on Sunday too & for the most part it's pelting down the road until it hits Empire - you may be better off hanging fire and going down on Monday when there is some stationary traffic to cadge water off ... you crazy fool :D

Prevailing wind direction

After a few chats with freinds, I'm interested to hear from nevada residents about the prevailing wind direction around the gerlach/empire area.

In particular I'm interested in the winds from tonopah and it's more western lands ... especially during the 1950's ;)

In my experience gifts are for giving, you cant give something and expect to recieve something in return, that's a trade not a gift.

Just be yourself and good things will happen ;)
