Re: cooling your tent or van

MFOB, The "wrongway Endless Breeze fan" that I got doesn't blow the wrong way! It blows the right way but with a lot less force than it should have if the blades were molded in the correct orientation. [Here, I'll try to explain this problem better... ] The blades turn in the correct rotation and th...

Not knowing about the reschedule, and therefore missing the start of the Temple burn! My Dad passed this January and I had some important mementos inside. Really wanted to relax, watch it go up, and feel all the things!

Re: Worst part of 2013?

The "idiot meter" was at an all time high this year! Lots of things, but this one stood out: Right after the Temple burn there was a big white out. Ten feet away I hear a Crash! Shatter! Clatter!, then a muffled "Crap!" and can just make out a guy walking hastily away from something he'd just droppe...

24' Geodesic Dome

Hi, Firstly, I would like to stress that I am NOT offering the 24' geodesic dome that I built for the 2011 burn for sale! It was lovingly made from 3/4' EMT using a professional tubing crimper machine, giving the sections much-stronger-than-pounded ends. I built it for a friend and he will not be ta...

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

I received my STEP offer for two tickets yesterday, but I'm waiting for one holdout to commit.

Since STEP is apparently closed, what are my options if all I need is one of the two tickets I've been offered? I can't immediately turn one back in to STEP, so what can be done?

Right. I wonder, since the queue closes on the 7th if that means that you have until the 10th to accept them? (if you are offered tickets on the 7th, I mean...)

From the Jack Rabbit Speaks "Today (Sunday, July 8) 1,000 additional $390 tickets will be placed into the SecureTicket Exchange Program (STEP). This will get tickets to many of those who were not awarded tickets in the Main Sale, registered for STEP, and have been waiting patiently in the queue. (Th...

You guys gave me a couple of clues. I'm going to raise the water pickup higher off the bottom to avoid ingesting silt and also increase the flow with a better water pump. Thanks. --Dax Last year I had what I thought was a really well thought out bucket cooler, using a submersible pump and the blue p...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Last year I had what I thought was a really well thought out bucket cooler, using a submersible pump and the blue pads. It cooled very well for the first three hours, then the dust started to clog the pads and it lost a lot of efficiency. After day two it was useless and I had to dump the murky wate...

So, how can we "step up" the case for STEP to the BMLLC in light of this new situation? Who can we ply with promises of foot-rubs, wine and, uh... :roll: We need lobbytits! I mean a lobbyist!

The 'Unknown unknown' to remember here is that not everybody that gets a STEP ticket monitors and posts to this thread.

What's happened to the "Did you get a STEP Ticket" thread?

I'm on the STEP list, so I have a vested interest in following that thread. On Saturday, (04-07) the thread filled twenty pages and was very active. Now it's back to nineteen pages and is apparently locked. What's up with that?
