Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

Say I'm in the top 1% and heavily invested in companies that have huge government military contracts for perpetual conflicts that may never be allowed to end. Now I want a tax break on all my profits generated on the backs of the middle class and the little guy, since they paid for most of those con...

I've always used a 1/2" drill cause it's what I've got.

Don't go with anything smaller than 3/8".

Re: How? Charging small 12v batteries from my van (without giving them too much juice)

Is my reading comprehension faulty?

I understood the OP to mean he wanted to add an extra battery to his vehicle.

Thought my way was the easiest, though sticking an isolator switch is a good addition. :?

Re: How? Charging small 12v batteries from my van (without giving them too much juice)

If you're adding a second battery, it's best to have it match the one already in the vehicle. Even then it's better to buy 2 batteries at the same time from the same production run. The reason, If they're not matched one will always be weaker than the other which affects the charging cycle from the ...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Shouldn't matter as long as the outer pad gets plenty.

I put that inner pad there mainly as a retainer for the drip line and extra filter, but if the fan pulls some water into it, even better.

The little pumps we use don't supply to much water. The trickiest part of the build is getting the holes in the drip line spaced and uniform enough to flow out ALL the holes.

Re: DPW looking for people to come get some bikes.

For the last 7 years that I've been, the policy has been "Don't take ANY bike that isn't yours at the end of the event". Even repair camps that loan bikes get stopped on exodus for suspected bike theft. This can seem like a mixed mesage, but the bottom line is "You brought it in, you ...

Re: DPW looking for people to come get some bikes.

I think they said 5000 bikes were left on playa.

70,000 divided by 5000 = 14.

So one out of every 14 people left a bike on the playa...........GREAT!!! :roll:
