Re: No Spectators:The Art of Burning Man at the Smithsonian

Congratulations Dr. Helix! I may try to make the trip to D.C. sometime this spring. It's been a long time since I've been back, and there are a tremendous number of things to see and experience there, now with the added bonus of getting to see Ursa Major in person too. Well done! On a side note, I e...

Not that I don't appreciate a good welcome as well from time to time. I hope you're well Box Burner. Welcome back to the bar! ..oh, and...

Re: Ready to come home. Finally.

Terrific introduction NikonKing. I'm glad you're beginning to reach out beyond the youtube videos. While most of them contain a lot of sparkle and glitz and are fun to watch, the majority of them don't dive into the core of the event. You seem to already understand this, and recognize that Burning M...

Re: Black "Bio-hazard" trucks

FM, I think you may be referring to Pathogen Trackers camp, out of Florida. Apparently their convoy of Mutation Response Vehicles cause a bit of a stir whenever they travel cross-country to the burn; cacophony at it's best, haha! I haven't had the opportunity to meet them yet either.

Sarge, we haven't met, but I'm certainly familiar with your presence both here and on playa at Sextant. I consider you to be a first class artist, engineer and builder, and the way I hear it, a very friendly and approachable person as well. It seems to me that you embody the very essence of what mak...

I've kind of been wondering the same thing, where's Trilo? For the moment I'm assuming he is heavily involved in some kind of mountainous computer graphics project, but that's just a guess. Hope he's OK.

Hi Marty! Good to see you stopping by more often these days. I've mostly been snuggled up in the NEB lately, kind of regrouping for a bit. I hope you're safe from all of the wildfires out that way. It looks bad from what I've seen on the news. Meanwhile, I hope you are continuing to find time to mak...

Is there really an observatory on the playa? Yep! The Black Rock Observatory. It has been out there three or four years now, though I didn't hear if they made it out again this year. It is situated in a prominent location, positioned out beyond and equidistant along the line created by Center Camp,...

Re: Compact Drill vs. Impact Driver for Lag Screws

I was looking at impact drivers the other day Ratty, and the way I understand it, at least in regard to the 'yellow' brand that I was looking at, the main difference between the 18v and the 20v is that the new 20v is going with the Lithium Ion battery pack vs. the older 18v which uses Nickel Cadmium...

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...
