Re: California Fires: Camp, Lost, Eden, Mountaineer, Woolsey, etc.

I'm all the way in SF and the air is so bad here my eyes are stinging and my throat is raw. I can only imagine how insufferably bad it is for people closer to the fire to be inhaling all these toxins - let alone the horrible losses. I have multiple friends who's families have lost everything in the ...

Re: 2018 Arrivial / Traffic

I love the RJG's hyperbole: allowed the event to swell past its population limit then, a few lines later: As of Friday, the population at the Black Rock Desert event had risen to 70, 358 I don't think less than 500 people is what is implied by "swell past". This is within the range that's happened b...

Remembering MyLarry

Last week we lost a member of the ePlaya family, one who rarely posted yet was a major presence to all of us who knew him. Our own AntiM's beloved & magical husband MyLarry was taken all too quickly (FUCK CANCER), this is a place for ePlayan's to share memories about him.

Re: campsite needed

There will still be spots on the back streets - no need to join a camp, just find an open spot, check with the neighbors to make sure it's actually free, and set up your camp. Being a solo camper & meeting the neighbors is a really good way to end up with new life-long friends.

That press release basically confirms that they are willing participants in this.
That's what I get out of it as well. Sadly the actions of the Tribal Gov't are going to burn the average tribal member by loss of revenue, even if they're opposed to this action.

The street numbers have nothing to do with the layout of the city in relation to a compass. It's more to do with the names of the streets and navigating your way around.

Re: Anyone have experience with motorized trenching on the playa?

I'm pretty sure trenching meant to be only for areas of possible public vehicle traffic. On playa, across a road. Not for hiding wires in your camp. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but it's not supposed to. Don't take that on as a newbie. This. If it's inside a camp, cover those wires with rug...
