Re: Glasses

Instead of wet naps, the best thing I've used is a small spray bottle of pure (cheap) vodka and a bit of TP for a wipe. It cleans immediately.

Re: Latitude coordinate for 2018?

Thanks for all the input. According to Mr. Google, a degree of latitude (at 38 deg.) is equal to 364,000 feet. Using Canoe's coordinates, the difference in latitude between 2016 and 2017 amounts to about 450 feet -- close enough to not significantly be a problem, given the size of the gnomon. I will...

Everything you do -- whether you realize it or not -- makes a difference. It all matters, whether you come or you go, turn right or turn left, it changes the future. Whether you choose for yourself or have things chosen for you, it will change the course of history.

Well, my friendly local bicycle repairman convinced me that all that was needed was an adjustment to the shift lever, altho 2nd gear remains somewhat problematic. He got it working reasonably well and thought it would last another couple of trips to the playa. All things considered, I figure I'll tr...

The 3-speed transmission on my old trike is shot. I'd like to either replace it or, if easier, substitute an axle that has the two necessary gears fixed on it and convert the trike into a single speed. Right now, the pedal crank has 36 teeth connected to 19 teeth on the trans. From there, a 28 tooth...

Re: Future Drone Policy BRC & USA

While I certainly enjoy seeing things from the air, at Burning Man the issue for me is disrespect for two of the principles: participation and immediacy. Instead of flying around vicariously to experience the event, get off your fucking ass and get out on foot and actually interact with people.
