Re: Rainbow hair explosion!

Amos was not injured, although he did come out with chest and wrist pain due to the airbags. Insurance will be paying for him to see a doctor. :D We may also have a car lined up for after insurance, and it's a nice one! Hooray for friends with good taste! Also, tattoo that sounds wonderful. However,...

Re: Rainbow hair explosion!

Hello Everyone! I am sorry that I dropped off the radar a few weeks before the event, and haven't been on since. Toby let me know you guys were curious if I was going again, what happened, etc! My husband and I did go and had the time of our lives! We learned new things, saw wonderful things, and di...

Re: Tent Questions!

I just bent some smaller rebar and welded it on the rebar stakes. Works great. To remove from the playa, just put a pipe through the hole with the end on the ground and pull up - out it goes. https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/321536_126774754086329_100002614165231_144685_4922632_...

Yet again disappear for a couple of weeks due to crazy life and come back to awesomeness.

So, what's up with the railroad ties thing - I think the lincoln logs are a fantastic idea. How do you plan on securing them to the playa?

Re: Tent Questions!

Bottom line is that for the infinite possibilities for your infrastructure, there are two concerns which SHOULD be number one for ANY tent situation: 1- Shade over the top and on three sides. Hopefully, at least 8' of overhead shade in front of your entrance. Without shade on sides, you will bake e...
