Re: knee injury, can't bike, how to get around?

I purchased my turn-key kit from Ebikekit. My battery is a Lithium Ion battery and is specific to my kit. My kit was pretty much plug and play, installed in 1.5 hrs. and was shipped as soon as I placed my order. I ordered the largest 36v lithium Ion battery and asked that they configure my kit for ...

Re: knee injury, can't bike, how to get around?

My electric tricycle gets 25-30 miles between charges and with 4-6 hrs. to fully recharge. You most likely would be able find a kindly person that would allow you to plug into their generator for charges. However, at this late date and without heroic effort, I do not think that you would have the t...

Re: knee injury, can't bike, how to get around?

I'm not so bad off that I need a wheelchair, just trying to figure out some kind of motorized option that isn't overly expensive and hopefully I could use off playa as well. I really with I could have a 2 stroke on a bike, that would be perfect, but I read that those are not permitted. Anyone know w...

knee injury, can't bike, how to get around?

I recently hurt my knee pretty bad and there is no way I could ride a bike around the playa for a week! I see 2 stroke motors on bikes is not permitted, electric motors only make it about 5 miles (just enough to get me stuck in deep playa) and I have no way to recharge it, I'm thinking about a goped...

Tickets for volunteering

I hope I'm just being impatient and have nothing to worry about, but... Last year I volunteered about a week to center camp cleanup and I didn't expect anything for it, but at the end of the work I was told I would be getting a free ticket for next year. They took my info and told me not to buy a ti...

Be smart and choose your time and location wisely, you wouldn't walk down the street in your hometown smoking a joint would you? I guess that depends on where you live... Smoking in the deep playa where no one is around will probably be ok, but when you are in the middle of a bunch of people or camp...

Cheap but durable material for signs

I am thinking about offering stencils and boards to dome owners to make signs to hang in or around their dome, but I want to find something fairly durable that can last people a few years and also won't cost my camp too much to supply. I was thinking plywood or osb, any one have experience with any ...

I used printrunner.com last year and got them pretty cheap, but I had over 1,000 made! They weren't bumper sticker size though, so they were a little cheaper. But they had the best price I found online.

Ok, so I'm thinking we meet around the man at noon on burn day.
