Love doing it alone, makes me feel strong -- RAWR -- and I hate babysitting others who want me to go with 'em here and there...wanna do my own thing. BUT I also volunteer and thats the c...

Easy Question! HARD answer!

This easy question requires a hard answer! :twisted: I just detour over to Nye County & check into the Cherry Patch Ranch for a week prior to BM. An average week brings in about 2 grand & by the time the week is done, I don't mind all the old, naked, butt-ugly campers @ BM so much anymore (see Casan...

You could try...

...a hot glue gun. The substance is slightly rubbery of course when cooled and therefore 'gives' a bit with stretchy fabrics and it does hold securely.

Lest you forget -

I usually use Norcal to contrast with the LA/San Diego area. But you're right in that San Francisco is only about 60% of the way from the bottom of the state to the top. Perhaps saying "Bay Area / Sacramanto / Central Valley" would be more accurate (because I want to include places like Modesto and...

Some things to see or do along the way :)

As you travel north from LA, you'll hit the lovely town of Santa Barbara, very upscale, lovely shops and nice beach. If you trek off the main street road to your east, you can drive through Montecito - huge estates that rival Hollywood Estates and in fact Oprah Winfrey lives there (and Michael Jacks...

Finding a Ride

In previous years, I have always seen a lot of posts on local Craiglists forums under "Ride Share" for those traveling in. Some need rides, others are offering rides if you can share cost of gas, etc. Check there closer to the event if nothing else has materialized by then.
