Re: Merhaba from Istanbul, Turkey

Selam! I'm so glad I wandered back in and saw your post - my husband and I are heading to Istanbul next month for a week! We've got a fairly full schedule of the usual sites (my husband's a history fiend, and jokes that we'll be spending half of our visit in Constantinople), and are doing a trip to ...

Re: Rest In Peace

I reached out to Bin's brother, who broke the news on the bookfaces, about including him on next year's Remembrance Plaque (the last call for this year was July 20). After checking with Bin's son, he gave his approval, saying this in part: I know Jonathan would be honored (though he would never adm...

No bike is considered lost until the event is over. Starting Monday (through Wednesday Post-Event), lost bikes can possibly be recovered at the Yellow Bike Camp. After Wednesday, unclaimed bikes are donated to Reno-based nonprofits that fix them up and provide them to underprivileged kids. Your bik...

Re: RZR mask where to buy?

I just got two knock-offs from eBay for $14 - and it was shipped domestically, too, so I didn't have to panic over whether or not they'd arrive in time. Hopefully they stand up to the event. (I've got bandanas and at least one R95 mask kicking around in the rest of my gear if they don't.)
