Re: Getting your shit back together: progress reports

Ygmir, I stumbled upon this poem months ago on the web and your story reminded me of it: I LOVED YOU BEST So this is where we part, my Friend, and you’ll run on, around the bend. Gone from sight, but not from mind, new pleasures there you’ll surely find. I will go on, I’ll find the strength, life me...

Re: Tickets bought in FEBRUARY\MARCH, possible or scam?

I'm sorry to hear about your place burning down!

I'm not sure what you mean by DGS ticket.

Also, tickets were only recently sent out, so I'm not sure how you would have had a physical ticket in March.

Re: Shade Considerations for Solo Camping via Burner Express

I say go with the Galaxy Hut. It sounds like it will be a great way for you to meet your neighbors, gift some shade, and it sounds like the option you're most excited about. We are building one for the first time this year, and it only took us about an hour to put everything together. As far as tran...

Do you have any tips for making sure the bikes are level while setting up on the playa? Did you use a square and a level?

Re: 20" Mongoose Massif for the vertically challenged?

Just for reference, I'm 5'1" and I can ride the beast no problem if the seat is all the way down. We bought 2 and are turning them into a quadricycle :) It is pretty heavy though, so if you're worried about stability it could be a problem. I would def recommend seeing the Massif in person before pur...

Oh sorry! Toms are slip on canvas shoes (http://www.toms.com/women/womens-shoes/slip-ons). I wear em without socks on the playa (and off for that matter). I have never had a problem with playa foot but I understand this may be an issue for some people.

Hello playa bike builders! Has anyone used the granny bike quad kit (http://www.thegrannybike.com/index.html) on fat tire bikes, ie the Mongoose Beast? I'd really like to build a quadricycle this year and I think the granny bike is the easiest way to go, I'm just not sure if it will work with the be...
