we could tie rattlesnakes to the beams, too... maybe immitate them by having Dougly and Wolfe stand on each side naked?.......... you could also use it as a scoring system.............. I like this idea! :) However, before I commit-- *What* scoring system? Otherwise, I think I'll go with my origina...

Next time, I'll turn around 180 degrees and show my more photogenic side :D .

That one part went up pretty quickly. A few more trips to OSH for some washers, bolts, and nuts, and hopefully this thing should be done by next weekend.

Now, the basic idea that 6000 years from now, we may be indistinguishable from what we were 6000 years ago, yes, I can grok that. It's an antidote to the usual assumption that evolution is always "onward and upward". Let's work with that? Also, the post-apocalypse "future barbarian" thing and its i...

Lightweight, very well made, and *very* effective blade owned by –Wolfe. Has probably doubled in value since the death of the sword maker Jody Samson last year. We just need to pry it from Wolfe’s cold dead hands. Or you could try and take it from him with your 3-dollar machete. I wouldn't reco...

" Civilization is unnatural." was how UglyDougly started this thread. I agree with his quote. I like the idea of a Barbarian Camp where people can explore their "natural" side. Play on. The question then becomes *How* do we explore our 'natural' sides? In the case of Burning Man, a lot of people go...

Mozy-- My interests tend towards fantasy weapons; I think you have something there :). However, it also needs to be solidly constructed, made of good steel, and from a forge with a good name. If you have that, you have the right weapon. As long as we're posting weapons; one of my favorites that hold...

More to the point: Wolfe, we can do a shopping and maybe cooking expedition before going up if you like. What seems to work is doing most of the prep work at home, throw it into large freezer bags, and thaw out the food on playa. Sort of homemade MREs. I wouldn't want to usurp Littleflower's positi...
