Re: Best thing you ever saw

Best thing I ever saw is an impossible decision. Best thing I saw in a single day might be easier.

But I have to say: the Friday sunset from the top of the Man's tower in 2008, right before they closed it for the rest of the week. It was a beautiful evening.

She admits it freaked her out when I came back from BM but rather likes the post BM me. She will prolly never go to BM with me ...

Re: Emergency food

Emergency food/Camping food is always egregiously priced. I refuse to shell out for that--but I don't like cooking on the playa either.

Re: Time on the Playa.

I have a battery powered alarm clock ($10) out there that I bought in the Klamath Falls Fred Meyer in 2011. Most of my volunteer shifts start at 7:30am, so I have to get up at 6:45am.

On nights before shifts, I carry either a pocket watch or phone so I get back to camp on time to sleep.

I've never ridden a fat tire bike, although I certainly would. Cruiser bikes, well-maintained, do fine most of the time. Fat tires are even better, obviously, but if you can't get hold of 'em, there's no need to despair. But as mentioned, even new bikes come with popped innertubes sometimes. Always ...
