Try Ofoto? I think you can post the link on the message board. That way people who like your pix (i.e., see themselves in them) can order copies.

Well, I just got a new boyfriend and he's extremely supportive about this and other trips I have planned which he will not be able to go on. His approach for being supportive is to help me in all stages of planning and being a sound board for all the things I learn about the Playa and the event so h...

Some other considerations

So I went to buy my dust masks today and thought I'd share a morsel of thought about this experience on this thread. I tried on the 3M dry wall sanding masks, making sure it had the 95 percent effective rate. Had a good fit, smooth edges against my skin, and didn't feel clautrophobic. Made sure I go...

Make the offenders hold their tongue against the toilet seat for 30 seconds. That ought to quickly and affectively solve the repeat offender issue. As for leaving the non potty items outside the potty, that doesn't sound realistic - the items might get blown away or spilt or just left behind because...

speaking of flashlights, I got a Night Star flashlight which is really a shake light - shake for 90 seconds and you get 20 minutes of strong light. Now I will never have to buy (or haul into the playa or throw away) batteries. This will be good for the playa but also for keeping in the car/house for...

The Masai tribe in Kenya still build their rounded homes from dirt, ashes, straw, sticks and aged cow manure. Perhaps we can use aged poo. I don't think this form of construction would produce the inspired and desired burn effect though.

Ya know, it would be cool if we became the beetles and during the first few days of the event we each plastered our burnable contributions to a frame. Paper mache wouldn't be polluting, right?

Hopefully someone in the know (with authority) can answer these questions. This is not so much about good/bad parenting, as legalities, ramifications and preparedness.
