Re: Sealed wheel bearings for Cruisers?

My new Cranbrook seized up (pre-Playa BB treatment slipped my mind) but I was able to keep it going with some cleaning/grease. But at least one is obviously damaged (there's actually a strip of metal poking out of the gap on the left side) so my next project will be replacement. Thank you for all th...

Re: Tips from someone who slept in a car, alone.

Some neat ideas, glad it worked out for you. Seems like you did quite well on the work / play ratio! Feedback: "duct tape to fix the reflective foam outside the car." - Blue painter's tape works a treat! Get quality tape, however. Alternate windows shades are using inexpensive mylar emerge...

Yay for local burners going back out to get those things off the playa.


Yay, indeed. Woke up to this news and couldn't be more proud of and grateful to these people. :D

70,000 divided by 5000 = 14.

So one out of every 14 people left a bike on the playa...........GREAT!!! :roll:


Dang...this just makes me sick.

It would not surprise me to see bicycle permits become a reality.

We use a collapsible wagon attached to the back of a bike for our ice runs...(though I think the one we have is slightly beefier and/or has larger wheels)

Remembered yesterday that my usually trusty travel bicycle pump died (exploded) after last year's burn, so a new mini bike pump is on the way. Also, a large bag of inexpensive cushy grey socks for my pasty white tootsies

See a doctor! That said; I've had the same thing happen to me and it eventually goes away. Right now, post-burn, my right toe is pretty numb on the left side. Most noticeable in the shower, where the floor is cooler. The area is getting blood flow but no feeling. My guess is that it's a combination ...

Re: ~ El Wire vs. Side Glow Fiber Optics ~ ...Ready Go!

Keep in mind that any lights that use PVC to coat their wires--fairy lights included--have a good chance that they have lead on/in the coating and likely well beyond the limit set by the EPA or state standards.
