Re: First Timer - solo or camp option?

What you want or what you get out of it will all depend on the person you are to start with. Whether you chose a camp or going solo may or may not make any difference at all, again, depending on the person you are. If you decide to go with a camp, chose wisely. DO NOT DEPEND on a camp to provide you...

Re: The Car Thread

There is no way I would put her into a restored 62 Vette. Too dangerous. The shabby brakes (by today's standards) alone are cause enough for me to not do that.

I'll stuff a C5 underpinnings wrapped in a 62 Vette body. That will be much safer and more reliable than the original.

The Meet-n-Greet is a gathering of the ePlayans. Usually occurring on Wednesday evening, the plans and details will evolve as the burn approaches.

Re: 2020 Direction on ePlaya

Bulletin boards are not a format the 'instant gratification' crowd will ever participate in. It is considered a format for 'old people'. Of course, there will always be exceptions, but the exceptions seem to be getting fewer and fewer, with each generation. That is more of a 'gut feel' with no real ...

Re: Getting playa dust out of clothes

I had a few of my white cotton T-shirts and most of my socks get stains. The socks were probably stained from the moisturizer, on my feet, mixing with the dust. Soaked them in a weak bleach solution for a couple of hours and washed them. Came out just fine. Washed the rest of the clothes, like norma...

Re: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The Good: Reconnecting after missing the last two years.

The Bad: 89% of the burgins I asked had no idea there were 10 principles. E-racers out of control, speeding through crowded streets. Darkwad percentage at an all time high.

The Ugly: The incident at Barbie Death Camp.

Well, I consider this years bike prep a success! Only troubles I had were a bungee cord dropping into the rear hub causing the chain to pop off. Suffered two flats on Saturday (nail and machine screw), before the burn. I had brought two tubes. Luckily, no more flats after that. The dry lube I used o...

Re: Nitwits attack Barbie Death Camp BM 2019

The press loves to sensationalize things. If all art were allowed to be vandalized because someone did not like it, there would be no art, anywhere. Of course the press will not talk about that as it does not make as good of a headline. A precedent has been set. People were allowed to vandalize an i...

We arrived around 4:00pm (local time), the Friday before the event started, and it took us about 4 to 5 hours to get through the gate. In our line, they were taking about 10 minutes to search all the vehicles. I heard that if you got there before 11:00am, there was no line at all. We left early Mond...

Re: Speeding in BRC on the playa?

I almost got run down by a e-bike this year. He was zooming in and out of the crowd at about 20mph, at night, with no lights on him or the bike.

The darkwad percentage was very high this year. Made it hard to enjoy seeing the sights, at night.

Might want to post a map of the city and how it is oriented as well. It might be helpful for those arriving at night. I know I had to do that for 2016 (10:00pm during a white out) and I nailed the orientation of the RV.

Re: Bike Parts to Bring

For some reason I cannot quote you spacetime, but I am thinking that too little grease is not the way to go.

Dust is going to get into the crank hub, no matter what. I would think more grease would act as a barrier to penetration. Less grease would allow more penetration to the bearing surface.

Re: Afterburn bike care: Wiping + vinegar mist?

After the burn, I'll power wash the bikes, then strip them down, clean the grease out, make sure cups and bearing are still in good shape, put in fresh grease, check coaster brake for wear and replace what is needed there, and re-assemble. We ride them year round.
