Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

UnJohn I love you. Let's make a baby. (Oops. Did I just type that?) Can't wait to see you. Drive? I can't drive. I'm leaving my glasses at home. Contrary to popular belief, I don't drink at home. One glass of wine with dinner if available. I don't drink in bars either. Expect me to be drunk the ent...

Re: Attaching fairy lights to bike

I've been using those same fairy lights for years, and I just zip-tie them to the frame. Usually I just need to replace a couple of ties at the beginning of the Burn and I'm good to roll. For the battery pack itself I use Goop glue to stick it to a secure area, then use zip-ties over that. Never ha...

Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

We weren't going to be able to burn this year but wonderfully, life is a long and windy road, and circumstances changed and it turned out we are coming for the full week! Not being sure if we'd be able to make it prevented me from my usual ePlaya haunting and occasional posting throughout the year. ...

I dehydrate lots of tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions before we go and then make egg scrambles with them every morning. If you don't own a dehydrator you can dehydrate on the lowest setting on your oven with the oven door cracked open. At the burn, I throw the veggies in a bowl with some water for ...

Eplaya and the internet at large have shown so much negativity towards Burning Man Virgins and it really pisses me off. We were ALL burgins at one point! Even the people that have been attending since Baker Beach were goddamn virgins (maybe not burgins yet but definitely virgins). So, I thought I wo...

Re: What Are You Gifting in 2015.... ?

One followup question then...I normally cut with the grain of the t-shirt so it stretches better...I think that is normally vertically up the t-shirt...does the t-shirt "yarn" still look okay when you cut against the grain? Or do you just try to find t-shirts that have a horizontal grain?

Ratty that's an awesome idea!
