Re: what ever happened to..............

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.

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

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...

Re: Elon Musk & the Mission to Mars

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...

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...

That's a big chore TT.

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?
