Re: Looking to share RV (4 ladies)

During my RV-sharing days (don't do that ANYMORE) I wrote up a long list of BM RV RULZ...which only 2 responsible people paid any attention to (me and maybe one other). PM me if you'd like a copy of the RULZ.

Re: Best way for an outsider to get involved

Skills are nice to have, but sometimes just having a willingness to help out or a strong back and getting along with others is sufficient. Demonstrate to your local contacts/regionals that you can be counted on, show up on time, don't quit until it's miller time...and then keep on going!

Re: This Tent Mahal good for anything?

Too much mesh for me, personally. But as a loaner...gift horse and all that. I tented outside the RV for my first 7-8 years, but my big tent had small mesh panels that I covered with blanket material that I stitched to the panels. Didn't eliminate dust, but certainly minimized it a great deal.

Slightly OT, but those coming down from Cedarville will encounter a few uphill, manageable grades, but there's a looong downhill thru narrow, winding canyons approaching Gerlach. Heavier vehicles are advised to use lower gears and obey the speed limit signs. It's also open range and every time I've ...

That, too, Elliot.

On my point, when a seller tells a potential transferee that after the money has changed hands he can't give him anything to verify the validity of the transaction, the transferee has a big decision to make.

Re: how does a regular tent hold up at Burning Man?

For my mesh I sat next to a cooler full of Coronas and spent about 4 hours stitching sections of blanket material to the outside of the mesh panels. Does an amazing job of minimizing the dust sifting in. Find a tent with as little mesh as possible. The worst that can happen is you'll spend more time...
