Re: Volunteer comp tickets?

I like pizza but my favorite place to eat is at a place in Austin. Barley swine. The stallion is the original cheapskate but he will volunteer to take me there. Small plate with wine or beer pairings. Every single bite is the best thing I have ever eaten. There's this little joint near me, they don...

I saw it fall to the playa when you tripped over the carelessly left bike in a dust storm.

Back on the other end of things, I had a great conversation with a cool BLM officer this year who told me that the best place to do something shady on the playa is inside a porto-potty. Good to know, I guess? The other option that was suggested as having an "expectation of privacy" was an...

Re: Law Enforcement in 2105

I had no interactions with the law, and hardly saw them during the burn, which led me to think that all the talk before the burn was just scare tactics. However, now that the arrest numbers are out, I see that they were serious about upping their numbers. Last year, on the gravel, while waiting for...

Yeah, and I recall a Ranger shooing away burners with the all to ubiquitous cell phones saying "this is not something we want to advertise" but, honestly, I'm not 100% sure it wasn't a dream or something like that.

Re: BLM Needs VIP treatment as well.

Kudo's to the burner who did the BLM VIP freezer chock full of Choco Taco boxes on the playa.

I laughed when I saw it and doubly so when I opened it knowing what I would find.

I could have done without the book of testimonials which, to me, only served to temper the joke.
