Re: what are you making?

The Hof looks great yg! Quite an achievement! I especially like the 'fractured' granite designs on the side door panels. But really, the whole thing blows my mind! I've said it before somewhere, but I'll say it again; it amazes me how you have the capability to be able to build such a thing! But the...

Re: Donald Trump is my hero

Thanks for the link to The Atlantic election article Canoe. Let hope it doesn't get that far out of hand, but it certainly could. I easily see the possibility of a 'red mirage' happening Nov 3, and subsequently a lot of previously sewn mistrust taking hold as blue mail-in ballots turn the results in...

I believe that may be the name that Elliot sometimes uses for his "old time radio" personna here. A rare and fun treat! I had seen where he had recently popped in elsewhere on eplaya, so... here's to hoping for another installment at some point if he's so inclined. Meanwhile, the weather is making a...

Re: What are you reading?

. Just finished Built to Burn by Tony 'Coyote' Perez. https://i.ibb.co/hZw6YPC/51j-DZsnc-ZJL.jpg It's a fun read, starting out by covering his first trip to Burning Man in 1996, where Will Roger put him to work building the city prior to the event. Ahhh, 1996... for many of us here on eplaya, enoug...

Yeah, that idea of creating a parking lot along the outer ring on the north side of the city lasted all of one burn... It is best to park in your own camp, or in this case, on the outer side of the outermost street alongside where you plan to venture out into walk-in camping. There is a rope fence t...

Yep, I noticed that by mid-week cars were double parked in some areas, in effect blocking the first layer of cars in. I imagine if you really needed to leave early though, you could work it out. Regarding ebikes, I believe that there is a limit on the motor, a certain maximum of watts if I recall co...

Burning art on the playa during fire ban

The question occurred to me the other day, so I'll ask it here. First though, my thoughts go out to all of you dealing with the devastating wildfires out west. My question... with the strict fire ban currently in place on the playa and elsewhere, if this had been a regular burning man year, would bu...

I read that Tom Seaver passed away earlier this week. I don't keep up with current baseball teams much, but back when I was a kid, I was all over it. It's funny, I can still name a good portion of the starting lineups from long ago, but would be hard-pressed to name more than just a few of the curre...
