Re: Getting carded on the playa

I'm in my 30's and got carded at only one bar last year. I think it was because the bartender didn't want me and my friend to stick around. I also found a license on the playa last year and once we got back, contacted the guy through facebook to make sure the address was current. I mailed it back to...

Re: Playa Vino

I take a box of red. I throw it in the cooler for a short while so it's cool enough to drink. It's just your regular old cheap vino. I remove the box at home and just take the bag. I do drink out of stemware at home, but I found that the stanless steel water bottles HOLD AN ENTIRE BOTTLE OF WINE. Ye...

Re: One Item for BM a Day

On the playa, the manliest thing to use it for IS an ashtray. :) Hubs bought a tin on the way home. Once there, he needed to empty it out fast so he could use it as an ashtray.

Another joy of carding is if you don't like somebody in your camp, card them. If they're over 30, they're probably not gonna have their card on them. No card, no booze and they'll probably leave quickly thereafter. If you work in certain industries, you may also want to check your default world work...

Do you tell people where you're going?
