Re: Still haven't gotten your tickets?

I got the notice on July 14, delivered on July 20. The tracking links were not very informative - the usps one said something like "a tracking order has been requested" so not all that informative. I figured since one of us is home during the day, they'll come to the door, we'll sign and all good. W...

Re: Exodus 2013 - How was it?

So, I was going to compile everyone's times from camp to pavement by time, thinking it would make this enlightening bar chart, but there appeared to be no correlation between departure time and time spent in line. Didn't really pan out that way - it seems to be pretty random. But I will say that fro...

Re: Is the BMIR audio stream really live?

I believe that during the week and possibly the week before BM, it is live. People submit promotional spots that just get played, probably without checking. Incidentally, other times of the year there is no dj, and I'm not sure how the music list is created, but I suspect it's some sort of randomize...

So, 5 hours from camp to pavement, then another 2 hours to about the 60 mile mark, where we could pull off and away from the highway for a 5 hour nap. Another hour to Reno afte...

Re: Crochet Art Project

Your crochet fence was one of the highlights of a very dusty year. I was as excited to see it as I was some of the other large scale art on the playa. Afterwards, I noticed several other camps that had actual orange construction fencing and I always, just for a split second, thought "oh, there it is...

Aw, shucks. Why, I made the Sardine flavor. I'm happy you liked it - you are one of a small but devoted group who did. Word is, there's still a shot or two left. Plus, with several new campers with us this year, we may have lots of new flavors this year. Or not. You'll just have to come and find out.

Second is about the color-fastness of the dyes. Sounds like you have some ideas on setting the dye, but I have this image burners tak...
