Give Hushville More Space

The neighbors of Hushville request that they be given more space next year. They were packed in hippies, look at the sat map. That is all.

OK Again we appreciate the advice.Howver when it comes to driving up to Lovelock(only in Nevada would that be considered" down the road")and representing myself I am reminded of the old adage of"someone representing themselves has a fool for a client".

I've been following this debate for a while. Bottom line, the legality of medical marijuana is in dispute, so if you choose to test those laws in the middle of that dispute, you are making a decision to be a test case. The legal system will work it out eventually, the question is do you want to be p...

I spoke to a few other bars during the course of the week and had heard of about 5 or 6 other incidences where this had happened - it seemed like they were systematically sending in plants to bars to test out if they were asking for ID or not. I'm sorry to hear that. One thing I found was useful wi...

Burning Man = Scary Things

Anybody notice a recent spike in "this scary thing happens at Burning Man" threads? The funny thing about all the tales is that you can really never quite nail down who is responsible, but it's never the person who was supposed to be there, and it may be someone everyone knows. Strangely, the people...

I don't know why it happens more to some people than others.

Another reason dealers are my least favorite people at th...

Re: Something about Daft Punk

I've founded or co-counded 3 theme camps in my 10 years at Burning Man. Well Planet was all you. I'm not sure but I might disagree on LeTawdries, Bayou (or BRAF or BR school district) for that matter. I didn't see them so much as "founded, vision driven" camps but the same camp, with mostly the sam...
