Re: DPW Dump

He did say dump, but that doesn't mean he's right. We're at C & 5:30.
Nice to hear from you, Ratty. I've been inspired by your clothing reworking posts for years. I was thinking of you tonight as I put the last touches on my prom dress turned cape! 😊

DPW Dump

Hello all...
Any ideas about where I would post a question about the DPW dump? My village tells me we are placed across the street from it and I have no idea what it is. Thanks very much!

DPW Dump

Hello all... I've just been told our camp is placed across the street from the DPW dump. We're between C & D, on the Center Camp side of 5:30. Does anyone know what the DPW dump is? What in the world would they keep there? Color me confused...🤔 Hoping for fresh air!

Re: Hello. First timer from the UK here.

Welcome!
I wouldn't worry about a hammer. It should be easy to borrow one from a neighbor. They will understand when you tell them you've flown in. Enjoy!

Outbox?

I am trying to buy a couple of vehicle passes so we can get our camp and gifts to the playa. I've sent a few messages to sellers through private messages, but have had no responses. I noticed today there are 5 messages in my "Outbox". Have these messages been delivered? Thanks!

If we have a designated camp location, is it feasible to leave a camp mate, (a strong young man), with his bike at Will Call to pick up his ticket while we go ahead to start setting up camp? How far is it from Will Call to BRC and is it safe for a cyclist to be on the road? It would be great to get ...

Semi decent cowboy style hats for .99...someone somewhere is getting screwed, but we will make some hatless folks happy. ...

Hello and welcome! Indeed "bare bones" can be interpreted many ways. However, you can't fit a week of water into a backpack, much less the rest of what you'll need.

Re: So, how dusty was it?

Our little camp fared pretty well, though it did majorly cut into the time we were out and about. We had 2 old rvs with 2 Costco carports between them. We used all the side and door pieces, and many extra layers to try to block dust. Every afternoon about a half inch still swirled in and settled on ...

Hi... My brown Columbia down jacket was "liberated" from my bike basket at the 3:30 portos on Tuesday night in a bag. I'm hoping the "liberator" found the contents of the bag uninteresting and dumped it. The jacket has a shiny silvery lining and I'm very fond of it. I'm happy to pay return postage a...

Re: dry ice

Have any of you used dry ice pellets? They are by far the cheapest per pound locally, .54 a pound versus 1.99 for slabs. My concern is that the increased surface area will mean they will sublimate MUCH faster. :( My hubby's concern is that we will be overcome by CO2 on the way to the playa by leakag...
