Re: Denon MCX8000 dj equipment

I used a MC6000 out there a couple times. After the last time I started having some issues with sliders and crossfaders. Maybe it was the dust, or maybe it was the numerous drinks that have been spilled on that thing over the last 5 or 6 years. If I were you I would seal it up as well as you can, an...

Re: Is placement done?

I just wanted to find out if our camp was going to be accepted as there's a whole lot more work to do if it is with what we proposed. Two points: 1. The vast majority of camps that apply for placement receive it. Also generally if a camp's application is lacking they will email you and ask for more...

Re: What are some of your favorite camps to visit at Burning Man?

Mine, Battlestar Erotica. Just kidding, we're not that exciting :wink:. It depends on what you're after but the best is just to roam aimlessly and see what you find. Some of the small random camps end up being the most fun. But as far as larger established camps I really like Voodoo Soup, the Dusty ...

Re: Plz critique my foam panel design aka hexayurt

Very cool! How well do they stack when flat? How did you reinforce the vertical panels? They fold down flat with 9 panels in 3 sections (2 2-panel sections and one 5-panel section). The back wall is reinforced with a 1"x3" wood strut across the middle bolted to the panel with a big washer. The fron...

Great work! Way to go for it and try out a new idea. How did you end up anchoring it down? Four aluminum steaks on each corner about 3 feet away from the structure with paracord going across the roof. Works pretty well. The aluminum framing is supported by the wooden bracket in the roof, so essenti...

Re: Is it generally softer 3:00 side? Why?

Can't be 2%. That would be a 220 foot drop from the end of 3:00 to the end of 9:00 (11000' x 0.02). Biking east would be a bitch if that were the case. For reference, if you are standing in a parking lot that slopes to a catch basin at the middle, that is generally a roughly 2% grade. Steeper than y...

I was very grateful for this gift last year. In 2013 we camped at a rest area and woke up in the middle of the night to sprinklers hitting our tent so it was nice to have a real place to camp in 2014. We met some really great people there too.

If they only took 4000 applications there would be no need for any review though, there'd be enough LI tickets for everyone that applied.

Re: Low Income + STEP Program.

I was always under the impression that they close the applications once they receive 4000 (or a bit more), thus they should have the exact same number of applications to review as any other year. Of course they still have the pressure of all the other sales to deal with, but there's no way they rece...
