Re: No Email No Link?

I had a button to push in my email confirmation. Pushed many times and the link timed out every time without entering the sale. I finally entered the sale at 12:06 through my Burner Profile. Am in the queue. Probably will not get tickets. I have my credentials ticket from volunteering last year but ...

Re: Tell me a boob story

I like to wear wrap tops to work. One day on my bus ride home the top shifted so that my whole left boob (in bra) was hanging out, and I had no idea until I looked down as I stepped off the bus onto the sidewalk. And suddenly realized why that big guy with the beard had given me a big thumbs up as h...

Re: HAIR concerns on the playa? ;)

I have long, thick, curly hair. I did two pigtail braids for my first two years, then a full head of box braids with purple extensions, then back to two braids. For the two braids I combed out and braided up every morning, and undid them at night. Washed my hair ~3 times with leave in conditioner. I...

Re: DPW looking for people to come get some bikes.

I think the problem has been ignored too long in order to cling to the "you really should be taking your own bike off the playa" ideal. Lock your bike, of course. If everyone locked their bike, then 75% of these bikes wouldn't be here. But maybe facilitate the bike leavers by connecting them to the...

Re: Braids for the playa

I had my hair braided today by a very lovely woman from Ivory Coast , it took 4+ hours because my hair is already long and thick and my head feels about 3x heavier than usual. Last two years I have just worn 2 braids and left it at that, easy peasy, this is a HUGE change. But! Now it's purple, and e...

Re: Likely temperature range for 2017?

Keep in mind that you are at altitude, and that open playa storms, wind, etc, blow across without much to stop them. Reno and all surrounding areas are notoriously windy. Out on the playa, heat loss isn't mitigated by surrounding hills, trees, water bodies, nothing, so swings are more extreme. And ...

The really great news is: you have seven people, and all your gear. Voila! YOU ARE A CAMP! You don't need to FIND a camp, you ARE one.
