Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

Well, the truck is stuffed full of all of the things. It's been another doozy of a prep, but now, finally it's time to settle back and enjoy the road trip. I'll be thinking of those of you who aren't able to make it out there this year, and I'm certainly looking forward to seeing many of you in the ...

Re: Bright Headlights on Bikes? Possible Fixes?

If it turns out that the light is super annoying, I like Ratty's fabric idea because you can remove it at times, such as if you decide to venture out into deep playa at night, where it is nice to have as much light as possible out in front of you so you can effectively dodge the softer dune areas as...

Re: What is your floor?

I use a fairly heavy painter's dropcloth. It has a cloth/canvas texture which is less slick to walk on and to me seems more comfortable than using plastic tarp. Secure it to the ground as Token suggested, using those really long nails and a washer every few feet around the perimeter. They pound in v...

Re: The Waiting Game

I feel compelled to ask, have you read through the Burning Man Survival Guide and First Timers Guide. If not, stop what you're doing and read those carefully before you act. If, on the other hand, you have, or you've already been before, and are up to speed with your preparations, then I wish you we...

Re: Photobucket

That's a big chore TT. Regarding eplaya links, I haven't tried yet, but I assume because we can't edit our previous posts (after a couple hours or whatever that new time frame is set to) we have no way to relink images, unless I'm missing something? Granted some of this stuff is relatively meaningle...

Re: Photobucket

Below is a link to a recent similar thread here on eplaya. Perhaps the mods could merge them together. I certainly agree that this Photobucket mess is a problem. Maybe we can reach some kind of concensus on best practice going forward.

New tires all around. The old ones still had some tread, but were showing signs of age. All in all, a potential headache I hope to avoid, especially when driving a bazillion miles loaded down with all the things.

Re: Can a vehicle pass be used by two different vehicle drivers?

Yep, the VP stays affixed to the car.

However, I'm not sure what the procedure might be if your husband let your friend borrow his car once he leaves the event. Would he need to inform gate, get VP scanned, etc., on the way out?

Uncoupling stuck carport legs

It seems every year I end up with at least a couple of carport legs that are really stubborn and difficult to pull apart when I'm disassembling my shade structure. I'd rather not sand down the paint surface of the sleeves unless I have to. Other than trying to twist them, or tapping lightly on them,...

Re: Photobucket is down

Egads! So does that mean that all of the many photos, cartoons, original art, etc. that we photobucket users have posted to eplaya over the years will some day soon be kaput, and replaced by little broken picture icons of some sort?

Or is it just a concern going forward.
