Re: Shake-down on the Rezs?

Just had a camp mate stopped in Nixon for supposedly driving with his high beams on (he wasn't). It's definitely happening for oftentimes manufactured reasons. Be careful out there folks.

Re: 2018 One item a day for BM list

Put everything that needs to be loaded into a big pile in the garage. Made my list of the last few things I need to add to that pile. Charged the various rechargeables. Inserted a fresh medical device that should see me through the burn and my trip home (and packed a spare just in case). Inventoried...

Re: Securing a Lavvu / Tipi to the floor?

We've taken a Sioux tipi before. We used rebar to hold the canvas cover to the Playa. It held up amazingly well. If it wasn't so difficult to transport the 15 x 22ft wooden tree trunks we'd bring it every time.

Expecting the last couple of deliveries today. Printed out all the papers (WAP etc). Packed all clothes and shoes.

Re: Party/Bar Requirements for Legal Drinking Age

I don’t understand how you can carry your drivers license everywhere else but in BRC you can’t be expected not to lose it. Maybe take fewer drugs?? I’d require real ID because real cops expect you to. I don't get this either. Aren't you already carrying a bag with your goggles, dust mask, toilet pa...

Also, in Utah, we have the choice of a DL or an ID, not both.

Re: Lactating Mommas: Need Advice

I'd definitely go the manual expression route for out and about. I used to be a La Leche League Leader, and I taught so many moms how to do it. Once you get going, you can really express a good amount very quickly. I think it would be MUCH easier than hauling pump parts around. Keep those at camp an...

Re: Lactating Mommas: Need Advice

Do you currently pump? (I assume so, since you mention having saved milk for baby). Use what you know in terms of equipment, and make sure you are drinking way more than you think you'll need. Also,make sure you know how to hand express in case of equipment failure: https://kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmo...

Re: Placement of the camp?

Your post sounds very much like you're assuming all these camps are begging for members and you just have to pick which one you want to join. That's not entirely true. Many camps worth their salt aren't going to just let some random person in who happens to like where they are placed. Find a camp yo...

Re: Electrolytes for Virgins

I basically don't drink plain water on Playa. Every bottle of water I pour myself has an electrolyte tablet added to it. My personal fave is the original formula nuun, it's got a very light refreshing taste, and no sugar so it's not too sweet

Re: EL wire and clothing lights

Yes, lights on whatever you're wearing at night. Definitely. Front AND back.

For what it's worth, I've had pretty bad luck with EL Wire. It just has not been reliable for me at all. I use various pin on/tie on/necklace flashing lights that can easily be replaced if they die on you.
