Re: Storage container as art, placed in deep playa?

You are reading "placed" as "I am going to put it there"? I am reading it as "ARTery assigned it a location ('Placement')". When I spoke to ARTery about on-site art registration a few years ago, they told me I didn't need to bother if I didn't want to be on the map or assigned a spot. It's called R...

Looks pretty firm and dust free on day one. Lots of smoke tho. As of this morning, the playa (at least inner playa and between 2:30-7:00 on G) was stellar. Rock hard. Smoke is better than last weekend but comes and goes, depending on winds. Yes. it's dusty. I spent last night under the stars, about...

Ah, OK. Makes sense now with the anchor points.
Also, don't underestimate the satisfaction of driving a lag screw if you've never done it before.
My newbies enjoy it almost as much a splitting 2x4 "firewood" with an axe. :coffee:

Re: Reno - BRC 22-Aug: Have room for LOTS of people.

That company wasn't on the vendor list last year, so they won't be this year.
The wait at Gate, even on Wed, can be 3+ hours and you'd be charged wait time.
Gate won't let them drop you there.
If you can make it work, great.
If not, I'll still give you points for originality.

If you need charging, come on over. I'm set up to do the Ryobi batteries via solar.

You'll need a 1/4" impact to 3/8" socket adapter ($4) and a 9/16" socket (you probably already have one) to drive the 14" lag screws.
