Re: Where to shop for food and drink? (never shopped in stat

Please do not buy a lot of gear and then trash it in a dumpster right after the Burn. But the dumpster at Savemart is a goldmine for dumpster divers the week after. I just think it is such a shame that a "leave no trace" event accrues so much waste that actually could be reused. There were...

Re: Testing a Monkey Hut - Fail

Lots of great ideas. Can someone with an artcar give a tour of all the monkey huts listed on here for comparison? :) I have used a tarp last 3 years for my monkey huts. 1st was sharing with a friend that he built. The tarp reached the ground on both sides. We had no problems. 2nd year I used my frie...

She said her last customers just bought a bunch of same tops for their first time. I expected people in San Fra...

Good luck.
