Re: Best thing you ever saw

Crude Awakening is the best thing I ever missed. Looks amazing in the videos. Best thing I ever saw was the playa for the first time on the first night of my first burn. Pedaling out from camp after finishing our set up after dark, crossing the esplanade for the first time and seeing the splendor of...

6'3" 239 LBS.... coincidentally ONE POUND below what would make him "obese" according to the body mass index chart. Seems legit. He looks like a slab of solid granite carved with a diamond.

I look at my 401(k) and it has appreciated nearly $400,000 since Donald Trump was elected. Considering it would have likely lost around $100,000 if Mrs. Clinton had been elected.

Re: Straighten PVC or buy new?

I've used the same ribs for 6 straight burns. They're permanently bent for sure, but they still flex and don't seem brittle. They'll be bent once the hut is constructed so I personally don't feel any need to either straighten or replace mine.

I retape ALL seams EVERY year. The bifilament tape loses its stickiness more than you may realize. It may hold up just fine but in my mind, the expense of a couple rolls of tape each year for my shelter is worth it.

Re: STEP progress--anyone got tickets yet?

This thread is very encouraging. Fortunately, I was able to get two tickets and a vehicle pass in the main sale... but it's still comforting to see that STEP actually works for people.

Re: Tickets are out!

I just took a gander and didn't see any ticket pictures posted on Instagram. That's probably a sign that very few (if any) folks have received their tickets. It usually takes about 3 seconds for them to get shared.

Re: Pre-Sale Ticket Success

Oh how I wish I could spare the dough for a presale ticket. Perhaps is the masochist in me... but I actually get a bit of joy out of the stress of general sale day. That's probably because I've always been lucky enough to get a ticket *knock on wood*. Hopefully I can keep that streak alive this year...
