Re: What did you learn this year?

I am not 20 years old any more.
I can actually volunteer too much.
If I volunteer too much I make for a shitty volunteer and end up having minimal fun on what is supposed to be my vacation.

Re: '14 cheers and jeers

Jeers to Calliope. Their dance art car wouldn't do that car part until Wednesday, so they just decided to make it an in city club....at 4:00 and A.

It's a good thing they go ti fixed because I'm fairly certain the neighborhood was about to hold a spontaneous correction of attitude for them.

I'm looking for opinions about tent stakes for my shade structure I'm not looking to use rebar. My tent last year came with some nice high quality 12" steel stakes that worked very well. My shade structure that goes around my tent does not have as high quality stakes. I'm looking to purchase so...

Re: Health Dept Penalty?

While I expect the snarky answers here, this is an honest question.

I also wasn't talking about not following health code guidelines, I was talking about what is the penalty for not having the permit, and permits don't protect us from hep or gastrointestinal distress.

Health Dept Penalty?

I'm curious, and I've looked for this information but cannot find it.

Say a camp was caught serving food in violation of the health regs and without a permit.
What is the penalty?

Why don't you just say "I do" on the playa in front of a shirtcocking "preacher" wearing a top-hat and fill out all the boring paperwork in a courthouse when you get back? You can, but a legal wedding anywhere in the US requires a license *followed* by a solemnization. Not in Co...

If you decide to not go....and you're from Seattle, find someone in the knitting camp with the initials K. R./burn name Crash.
