Re: Survey for Lost Bikes

hey! Thankyou for posting the Jack Rabbit speaks link! In regards to where the bikes go, it turns out that those are the same island. It was an unfortunate combination of ideas, but the lost children do find many purposes for the misfit toys. ultimately, it was a good thing. And to answer the questi...

Re: Survey for Lost Bikes

Dear Dr. Helix: I am a nerd. I like data points. My friends are in camps at 7:00 and C, 7:00 and E and 9:30 and E... and so far, out of 90 some points, 7:00 and D & E is as bad a place to leave your bike on the playa as Center Camp. E is rivaling the esplanade... and I know that my data is skewe...

Survey for Lost Bikes

I'm collecting information to try and get an idea of what the environment around a lost bike looks like. If you've ever lost a bike on the playa, would you take a minute to fill it out?

Lessons Learned

I’ve worked a whole lot on a big project this year and there’s been a dozen times that I’ve thought: we could have done X better, we could have saved money by doing Y and I have Z and I don’t know what to do with it. I want to make a lessons learned and common problems type thing to look at when I s...

Re: The Standard Doctrine for the Co-Pilot

Well, yes. Goodness. I think I must have been feeling bitter about many a poor passenger experience and the wishy washy passengers this year who just cannot make up their minds of whom they would like to ride with are frustrating me. Upon reread, the snark, rowdy jokes and sarcasm just don’t carry o...

The Standard Doctrine for the Co-Pilot

It seems to me that even though I have repeatedly said that I would NEVER take a passenger again, I seem to agree to taking someone every year at about this time. I get upset over things (that I think should be obvious), show up to events much later than I would on my own and I end up sacrificing a ...

Fables

I'd like to spend some time collecting some mythical stories about things that happen on the Playa. I'll generalize details so readers can make them more personal. They should be stories that are often told, beliefs about some things, or, well, something that I need a lesson for. If I get multiple i...

You didn't miss much, unless you're into heat, foul people and a lot of moop.

If we sincerely need something, I know of a dry lake bed that's similar to the Black Rock playa, near Reno. It's privately owned and I can talk to the owner if necessary.

Sounds like a neat idea. We're on to something. Can we just have a jam session in the middle of winter for the hell of it?

What about incorporating fire dancing? Or... noise dancing? we could attach a number of obnoxious things to people and make them dance!

This is a neat idea, from a fantastic perspective - I feel like many of the art projects I saw were visually oriented and my auditory senses were bored by the end of the week.

I do not agree with what many people are saying here - First, kicking a person out of your camp who is a problem and targets someone in your camp doesn't fix the problem. They can come right back again. If someone is a serious threat, you need them GONE, and you need to control them with securities ...
