Re: Is there a grocery store at Reno airport?

Admiral Fukkit is right on the money! Shit always goes a little sideways...If you have the option to fly in the night before, DO IT!

By the way, since you're an Admiral now do you command a fuckin' fleet? Is there a newly commissioned Captain? :D

Slightly different, but the same....they allow for passengers to fill extra seats in the Skydiving plane! I got to do this in 2014 when we camped across the street from the Sky Diver's Camp.

Re: PAGE TWO

Someone asked about when the man burns! It's been 12 hours and not one snarky response! Not even a respectable "You should do some research here before asking stupid questions?" type of reply.

Are you people losing your touch? Too easy a target? Or did you just feel pity on someone so helpless?

Re: Burning Man 2017 Ticket Information

If it's the same or similar to last year...your assumption is correct. Once your burner profile is set up correctly all you need to do is logon during the registration window and follow the link that appears. After that...the free for all begins. Good luck!

Good job getting your ducks in a row!

Hi Leenyjay, I've done it both ways, covered and uncovered. My travel trailer doesn't have a standard AC so I've rigged a window AC to work while I'm there. It is small and won't cool the entire trailer, but works well enough to have a place to hide during the hottest parts of the day. Yes, you will...

It wasn't even close. The evapotr...

Re: Shower platform material?

After trolling Craigslist for a couple weeks last year, I found a free shower basin from someone who was redoing their bathroom. It was really easy to build a stand for it so it stood about 18" off the ground. I put it in our evap pond and it worked really well.

The price was right!
