Re: BURNINGMAN IS ABOUT TO CHANGE.

Nothing is permanent. Everything, everyone, every experience is on loan. Burningman, as we once knew it, is done. Greed, scale, and the pandemic all colluded together to make sure of it. The folks who ran it couldn’t see they were headed for catastrophe. Investment in an area and with people who rea...

Everywhen project

Seems like there is a splinter group calling themselves the everywhen project. Looks like they are trying to have a burn on playa summer of 2021. Looks pretty legit, to the point I signed up to be on the build team. Idk if there will also be another burn like the 2020 event as well, but it’s looking...

If Burningman is endless partying, sound camps, quests for swag, and conspicuous consumption of pharmaceuticals, then yea, it’s done. I for one am fine with that.

Went and it was epic. Realized the org is only necessary if you want 100k art cars and 100,000w sound camps.

It was 1991 all over again.

I am back working on the 65 convertible. It's been 2.5 years since I started, and usually a resto takes me about a year. But in my defense, I finished the bel air, and also rebuilt the engine in my rv.

The goal is to have it done by July 13, which is the date I tore it apart in 2015

Re: Diesel Exhaust Fluid correction

We ran into problems with Def equipped vehicles in our vehicle maintenance department because of all the low/barely above idle speeds the trucks are forced to run at.

So mid/end of week we had to either take them out to deep playa or out onto the 34, and run them at wot until they cleared up

Ok, first of all DO NOT SPRAY ANY FILTER WITH WATER. Within a short period of time, you will have a clogged and now useless filter.
