Re: Estimating liquor needs

Re: Arrival from the north

Have a back up plan - gates opening on Sunday are never guaranteed. Nor is a time on Sunday. There are a few great places and some out of the way campgrounds just a few miles from Gerlach that kick butt. That time of year is also hunting season, but Smoke Creek road just to the North of Gerlach and ...

Re: Burner Profile site under heavy load!

Rememer folks there are a lot of burners trying to get registered, but this is not the sale and your registration order does not matter. Relax, you have more time to register if you have not. The directed sale went very smoothly, I hope it was a good beta test for this years open sale.

Hedging your bets is cool and all, but what you are doing is screwing two other people and forcing them into buying tickets at the presale price. My opinion here - mod hat off, but it appears you had the means to buy the presale tickies (even though it bit your wallet) and now want to buy 2 more tic...

Re: Wire rope load limit

ouch - There is a lot of energy in a tensioned line, be careful and plan on it parting. Think redundancy and what ifs - it helps to overbuild.
Most wire rope will have a certificate on the end of the spool (or did when manufactured) take a look if buying bulk.

Re: Scaffolding towers

check your anchors daily as well - the constant motion is known to egg out the hole and they loosen up considerably. Rebar is cheap, you can get it cut into whatever lengths you want and it holds extremely well.

How many people and vehicles can we evacuate in the freak chance it is necessary in 24 hours? that is the driving force of your cap. In addition there are policing, sanitation and safety concerns as well. The permit language lays out the thinking pretty well.
