Re: 24 Hours at Burning Man 2016.... in 2017... Lighthouses, La Victrola, Catacombs burn & more....

Thank you for this! It is maybe with the best video I have ever seen of burning man. Long, but ever entertaining. And authentic. You're ending is hilarious.

Re: Lag Screws for Carport

The legs need to be movable while you are putting the walls on. Put lags in the feet only as the very last part of the setup. Only 12" lags are needed, because the only purpose they serve is to keep the feet from walking in the wind. For actually attaching the carport to the playa, I sink 4 18" lags...

Just play 1/2 to 3/4 turn with the screwdriver after getting the eyelet finger tight. More than that risks collapsing the EMT.

Re: Free Costco Carport for parts

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I am interested, but I am on the western slope (Ridgway). Our camp uses a number of Costco carports, and the extra parts would be terrific. By any chance do you have reasons to come out to western Colorado occasionally?

Re: Licenses will be issued as early as July 1, instead of Jan. 1.

.Nothing has changed. This is a federal policy and law, and pot is not legal at the federal level. Nevada marijuana law has no more jurisdiction over federal law than does Oregon's. I do not think this is correct. In the past, I believe it has always been simple Nevada state and county court citati...

Re: Licenses will be issued as early as July 1, instead of Jan. 1.

Here is one possible answer to my original post. They will go after only drivers, but will test for micro levels of THC in urine samples, and then issue a Nevada state DUI charge.

We have our sound people rounded up, but Playa Choir still specifically needs a bass player. If that is you, pm me. And of course we want all singers, choristers, and musicians who have an interest to join us. We also still have a few camp spots available.

I would not rely on a taped tarp edge. All the wind, dust, and flapping can cause the tape to suddenly release. I sewed up some tarp edges last year on a regular household sewing machine. It took a lot of careful folding to get the tarps properly through the machine. I put 1/8" braided cotton cordin...

Re: Flat roof tarp shelter, advice needed.

You have not given enough of a description of what you built to be able to give you specific advice. Can you post a picture? Generally, PVC will not cut it for a rigid structure. And generally, yes you need to frame each side of your tarp with a pole. Most people use 1 inch EMT.

When you go to Costco to look for the carport, you have to actually say you are looking for the 10 x 20 canopy. Costco does not call it a carport and will always tell you they don't have it if you call it that. Also, it is not something they carry online. They do carry replacement roof tarp for the ...
