Last year I took just one pair of shoes, my Timberlands, but other than well broken in comfy shoes, FOOT CARE is the best way to keep your feet happy. I did the vinegar wash, with a mist bottle to make it easier, and then I rubbed my feet with bag balm every morning, Dreamcatchers camp last year was...

Nicole, I would suggest you also look at at the theme camp list on the BM web site. If you find one that you like, email them and ask if they are still taking new people, you might find everything you need. See you at the Hostel in Reno, I live here and like helping Fred out, it starts my burn about...

I should never post tired, I didn't mean too sound that sharp. Sealboy said it, the only thing change might be say as far out as Jupiter or 9:15/8:45 on the clock, depending on who is in front of you in line, they all might head for 9:00.

Question, are you a registered theme camp? If yes, then go in when you asked on your paperwork, as your spot is assigned. If no then you are not getting in until 12:01 Monday morning, along with everyone else in line at that time. At that point I woud say you have a good chance of finding a spot big...

I should have added, the construction, very narrow lanes, no more than 2 each way, is east of the interchange of 395 and 80. So east bound people would be be better off at boomtown or downtown. West bounders, might like sparks better

Hmm, for electrolyte replacement try gookinaide
