My BM budget this year is roughly 2.5k. I'll be driving in from, and back to, Pennsylvania, building a new shade structure, better tent, booze, food, odds and ends, ticket, etc. It's money I've earned. I could spend that type of cash in ten minutes in Vegas, or in an hour in a strip club, or for thr...

A simple thought.

Didn't feel right about posting this on the existing threads, so here it is: Has anyone suggested that the ORG request LEAs pull their undercovers out of the event? Sure, it's a laughable notion, the compromise may result in an increase of visible LEOs, but maybe that would be "progress?" After all,...

If it's getting(or about to get((or might get))) heavy, close your eyes, take several full, deep breaths, and count to ten.

It's kind of hokey, but it works for me.

I second the "free squirt" idea.

That's just one of those cool little things that would light my day/night up out there.

People already go on quests at BM without the help of RPG folk.

Just my opinion.

I'm going back to planning Camp Mt. Dew now.

Hitched out Saturday night right after(an hour or so) the Man burned. Stood at the gate, checked my watch, held up my sign that said "Reno" and eight minutes later I was in a car. I don't think it'd be terribly challenging to thumb in from Reno late Sunday/early Monday. Just find a good on ramp or s...

I'm trying super hard to make it to Frostburn this year. As far as shelters go, I prefer a small tent for winter camping, good ground insulation, and a better-than-decent bag with spare blankets if need be. At 6ft and 225 pounds, I don't really get cold easily or quickly, so I'm usually peachy with ...
