Re: What are you doing for SF Decompression!?

Ended up going and even doing a little bit of volunteering and I must say the event this year did not suffer at all from the lack of certain sound camps.

Re: Car shopping!! What's a good a Burnermobile????

I hear Ford makes some kind of F250 with a hybrid engine. That's burney as fuck. (Not because of the environment but because it makes long distance driving with a carful of crap way cheaper.)

The only shame is that hybrids can't come in manual.

Re: 2012 confessions - CLEANSE YOURSELF

I think I gave our neighbors the spicy pickles. I tried another batch and I thought they were really spicy, so that probably means they're way too hot for normal humans who don't use siracha like ketchup. I feel guilty. Another thing: the reason that I volunteered this year was partially to get myse...

Re: What 'worked' and what didn't make the cut.

Anyone got any recommendations for playa boots that are friendly to a no-shoes type of foot? About halfway through the event I started realizing how much I hate wearing normal shoes but didn't want to throw caution to the wind and risk the dreaded playa foot, either. Need something boot-like, with a...
