Re: Enchanted Forest/Playground seeking campers

This sounds like all of my favorite things represented on the playa. I will be camping with Lamplighters, but I will most definitely stop by to frolic in the forest! :D

Re: Low income debate

I appreciate your honesty, Badger, but I respectfully disagree with you. Yes, some people do abuse the system, and it's unfortunate. I do not think that this should be grounds for termination of this program, as it does truly benefit some people who do "earn" it. I really would like to kno...

Did you want to know about general ticket prices, or prices for low income tickets specifically? I was awarded a LI ticket in 2012, and I'd be able to tell you how much that was.

Re: Water thread

As newbies, we were careful to drink water constantly. We picked up 30 gallons of water in Reno on Sunday, all in the 2.5 gallon "suitcase" containers. When we left the next Sunday morning from the playa, we only had one 2.5 gallon jug left. We all took two quick showers during the week, b...

Quick question about the footprint of a monkey hut. I've been looking at Chromatest's website, and my brother and I plan to build a monkey hut this weekend as a test run so we know what we're doing when we hit the playa. We have a four-person tent with a 9x9 footprint, and we're camping with one oth...
