Site Downtime 13 August @ 10pm PDT

Sorry for the short notice, but I'll be taking the site down this evening at around 10PM PDT to do some maintenance. It shouldn't take too long, ideally less than an hour. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

I went through some other gear and got the battery bank for the other trike out, everything tested out okay and it's good to go. The replacement control...

Re: WANTED: yurt transport

For what it's worth, two yurt sets and a camp's worth of gear is probably the majority of a small truck or trailer's capacity - you guys may want to privately discuss the idea of going in together and seeing if you can find a rental vehicle somewhere in the bay area.

It can vary from year to year, and has had some epically bad years in the past, but it looks like things have greatly improved and 2017 is shaping up to be even better. Thank you...

Re: Where To Donate Bicycle After BM ?

I can appreciate that you want to be a single use/disposable burner, but the idea is that what you pack in, you also pack out. If it is a Huffy Cranbrook the yellow bike program can accept it, but otherwise you would want to plan on hauling the bike back out with you. I have occasionally seen roadsi...

Re: sharing food/water as a solo camper - well intended, ill conceived?

To be perfectly clear, if you are planning to bring and offer food to people who are not in your camp, you will need to obtain a food permit. Water could also be an issue, that depends on containers and source - if it's coming from either packaged sources or a permitted provider that's usually good ...

Re: on 3 and 9 o'clock, plaza vs. circle?

Sorry I didn't see this one sooner. Yes, the 3:00 and 9:00 "plaza" are the inner plazas located at B, and the "public plaza" is the outer plaza located at G. The "portal" designation refers to the angled streets that form a keyhole with the inner plaza on the respective street.

Dozens, if not hundreds of camps use UV lights as part of their decor.
