Re: Special Temple Burn

Over the years the temple has helped me to heal...I hope it offers you the same relief.

I offer my condolences as well.

But that...is one of the more moving things I've read on here. Wow.

Re: Death to Spammers, Phishers etc.

The eplaya is unusable thanks to the spammers. 14 pages of new posts, 98% is spam. I hope once the mods get back that they will clean things up.

Now that's some great news! You'll be flying up US 95 in no time!

Meanwhile I'm upgrading my internet connections so I can watch the burn on the TV and not a laptop. I hope that playa cam doesn't fail or I'm going to be really pissed.

I happened to come across them at a garage sale and snapped them up for cheap. Also walmart.com has a Schwinn trike for $260 that might also be an option...

Re: When It Comes to Tents......Is Bigger Better?

Bigger can be better. Having camped by myself for several years on the playa, I never found myself grumbling that I needed less space. Good rebar stakes, strong rope, and knowing a few basic knots will keep your larger tent from blowing half way to Winnemucca. (Oh and duct tape. It's got a million u...

If they're just going to roll out changes and not listen to or more importantly act on the feedback then maybe it's time to go somewhere else.
