Picking up a $25 beach cruiser today, now I've got something to stretch my legs on before the Burn!

Next up : Designing a shade structure that'll support a hammock with me in it, but still be light enough not to ruin my gas mileage all the way to the playa.

Yeah, that annoyed the heck out of me. I used to -love- their bay rum shaving soap, but now you can't find the stuff anyhere.

Reminds me of back in the day. My best buddy used to drive a '66 microbus with the barn doors, painted bright orange. We got to the point he had a spare engine in the garage, and we could swap the thing in under an hour. 400k+ miles on the frame and no issues, though!

4 new tires and a complete front end repair done on my car, thanks to the magic of potholes.

I'd now trust it to pull the 1500 mile run out to BM. On the other hand, there went all my savings!

Locked in a new job that not only pays better, but doesn't have a problem giving me the time off for the Burn.

Baby steps, here!

Well, considering your Contraption thread showing up in the DIY section of another forum I frequent is what led me to the eplaya, I'd have a hard time not being glad to see that the DMV approves!

Yeah, but you'd have to either clean all that corn at home, which really kills it in high heat without the husks and silk to keep the moisture in, or deal with all that lovely MOOP that'll float forever on a good wind.
