Re: Low income debate

Best Burn Ever 2013!! Fellow burners, perhaps a narrow focus of this debate centers on malingering. In eplaya & playa-speak, this is a situation where "someone" has/might have/perhaps gotten by cheating what the rest of us have paid for with real sweat. This isn't the full meaning of malingering, fo...

Re: Propane-Powered Vehicles

propane vehicles I had a propane powered mid-80's ford f150 pu 1/2 ton for many years. The propane tank was behind the cab. The tank was rated 114 gallons. The most fuel loaded at one time for me was 102 gallons. There is always some air space in a propane tank. A gallon of propane weighs 4#, half t...

Re: Wheelchair Accessible Mutant Buggies

I ran a lithium battery powered scooter on the playa this year. I had no trouble with the electronics, and a simple, heavy gearing design made short work of silica (unlike nylon bike parts!!). PM me for brand info. I'm ambulatory and therefore not 100% reliant on mobility devices, but I did notice t...

Re: Birds at the burn

Thanks for the responses. As a boring and pedantic birdwatcher I feel safe saying that the playa, while harsh and hostile to you and I, is, on a fair day, a place of safety and solace to the littlest bird. Clear vision, no lurking places, no ambush sites. No tall grass for the cat. and the distance ...

Birds at the burn

Best Burn Ever! Hi boys and girls, or what have you, Peace! Bird watcher's are always "horny for orni" which leads me to inquire about the various interactions of our avian friends and Burner's. Personally a crew-member and I both tried to tempt an American Pipit to eat granola bars (not) in Center ...

Re: Ticket Perspectives- positive side

Hey Dougly! Potlatch went out with the missionaries. Now it's pot luck, every monday at banned camp. And BM is the closest thing to the spirit of potlatch as practiced by the North Coast Tribes anyway, so you don't have to leave home. We had to teach the natives greed because it's hard to rob people...

Re: Seeking an ordained minister for playa wedding =)

Sweetheart, Since I brought it up, I'll try to actually produce some factoids. Here's a link about marriage law reasonably specific to NV. http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-122.html The clergy or "other person authorized to solemnize a marriage... in another state." All "clergy" has to do is poof t...

Challenging nuptials

Interesting issue on this note. Ever hear of a marriage annulled due to the qualifications of the offical? Not likely. Here in WA the law is so vague, you could sign it "gumby". I coulda' saved the ten bucks I sent the Universal life church back in the '70's!! No doubt your marriage will be safe if ...
