Re: Camp sign: bulb types, power, and charging?

1. The bulbs that are featured look great, but are typically high-wattage bulbs. Clearly LEDs are the way to go for power savings, but I'm having difficulty finding LEDs that have the same classy bulb style. Any leads on where I could find something similar that is still low power? Those probably a...

Re: 2015 one item a day for BM list..

Add to that four bike horns, the kind that go HONK. It's going to be a fire organ. You. You sound like you throw the sort of party I like. Ain't no party like a fire party cuz a fire party goes FWOOMP! I don't think we've heard about placement for the project yet, but we'll probably be in inner play...

Re: LED Strips into blinkers?

If your electronics skills aren't up to building something with a 555 timer chip and a transistor or relay to drive the LEDs, I'd suggest going to a car parts store and asking there. Electronics are my thing, not cars, but I think you'd be safe with any "LED-compatible" flasher module. And it will b...

Re: hello from a lurker!

I'm already loving the parties and work days. So many good people. I've been amazed and inspired by some of the stuff people here are building just for their shelter - fully outfitted hexayurts, trucks, trailers, etc. I'll probaby be sleeping in a 2-person 4-season tent, but I will be putting a smal...
