Re: To Bike or not to Bike?

^ good advice there, if its not such a hassle to bring one then you might as well. Maybe a bike-less campmate might ride it to the pottys and make some use of it if you dont.

Re: To Bike or not to Bike?

My first year I lived on my bike, because I wanted to see everything. After 08, (which if you guys remember the same way as I do was mostly unridable hippy sand traps) I took up the hoofing it method. Traversing great distances is the only obstacle I really come across, but if I want to be there I w...

Re: Gates really opening at 6pm Sunday?

Last year I hit Gerlach around 12:45 and if I remember correctly was just hitting camp when the sun came up. Although it has been different every year, so planning to get in right at sunrise is going to be pretty tricky.

Re: Help, please

Also it might help to put "electrical question" in your title, these days forum folks are so tired of seeing "help need ticket" or "help miracle please" threads that blindly asking for help might not even warrant a second glance.

Re: Help, please

I'm not an electrician or anything, but typically red and black would be your hot in wires and white would be your negative out, green would be the grounding wire which would likely not connect to the plug. Just a screw somewhere. I looked at the pictures but feel like i'm still missing something. B...

Re: ?Kickstarter Problem?!? Amtgard Foam Sword Fighting Proj

I love your idea. I have friends who do Amtgard in Wavehaven and the Iron Mountains. I even attended one of their big wars on Mount Madonna in California one year. It was pretty intense and has a nerdy, yet burny community vibe. That being said i've seen plenty of projects on kickstarter for BM and ...

Re: Life... in the city

I like to flip through the what/where/when book for the current day and find an event that semi interests me and start wandering there. Theres always so much cool shit on the way and i'm easily sidetracked so I only actually make it there about 1/4 of the time, but the adventure is always a blast.

But the fact remains that shirtcocking is a Court Martial offense. One of the few things that is against the "rules" at the Fandango bar is shirtcocking. You will not get served. Period. (others include: "miracle" signs, bragging you got a miracle ticket at the gate and, dependi...

Re: Puking at Burning Man

I no longer drink Jager and plan to never puke on the playa again. You're doing it right. Thanks, last year I did that wdydwyd and my answer was "because everyone else is doing it wrong" Also, the mere thought of the heinous mixture of absinthe and ham makes me want to vomit.

Re: Puking at Burning Man

In 2008 I drank an entire fifth of Jagermeister, was lying face down halfway out my tent and couldn't move so I puked in a puddle around my head and fell asleep in it. When I woke up, it was gone. Inform the hippys in Gerlach because I found a real playa miracle. I no longer drink Jager and plan to ...
