art car loudly playing trap during 2015 temple burn?

Did anyone else get really put off by the art car loudly playing trap during the 2015 temple burn? It was really really loud, and no doubt ruined the moment for lots of people. I didn't see which car it was as I was probably 1/4 of a mile away from it, but if we could identify it, shame it, and mayb...

Re: Deep Cycle Batteries and CPAP

I would suggest combining two 6 volt golf cart batteries for a single high amp hour 12 volt output. Golf cart batteries have high amp hours and can go pretty low in charge and still be usable. This is what fulltime RV'ers use for their house batteries. To recharge from a generator you would be a con...

Re: I if you are bringing an RV...Please READ

I'm bringing an RV this year, but it's not a rental, it's our home 24/7/365, and I'm really worried after years of tent camping that I'm finally going to have to deal with the anti-rv closed minded crap.

Re: Oppressive morning bass from Robot Heart and other sound

I was really annoyed by this one art car driving up and down 2:30 one morning blasting music along with some kind of siren at 9:00 am. Then I realized the art car was a rooster, and then I couldn't help but clap my hands, and say "well played camp surly, well played"!

Warning to those who are flying out!

So now that airlines are charging for all bags you check, most people are bringing a big bag on the plane. So most likely if you are seated at the back of the plane by the time you get on board someone will be telling you that they will need to take your bag and check it for you. This is what happen...
