While on the street hawking Superman's cock, Ranger Retro stopped and took note of our signs posted in plain site, "No persons under 21 allowed, ID required." He asked to take a picture and said it was a good example that we are "trying" to comply. Even while gifting absinthe on the street and LEO ...

Yeah, I got hit this year. The sore throat, too, as did a bunch of people in our camp. Hard to tell if it's just a bug that went around to LOTS of people, or simply playa lung (and playa throat?). Seems to be passing... nearly gone now. I got caught in at least two major white-outs this year for ext...

I got what they were doing, and appreciate it. I have no problem with it. It didn't meet my expectations, based on the temples that came before it, and I didn't much care for the aesthetics, again, compared to the earlier incarnations. I didn't HATE it, but but I understand the "let-down" that some ...

I agree some sort of roof ventilation (trickiest to keep playa from entering, unfortunately) would improve the efficiency. My cooler worked out quite well, although I really only used it on the two hottest afternoons. I agree it wasn't really enough to cool the whole yurt, but pointing it right at m...

"I plan to run my AC only when I sleep. I may run a fan inside periodically if I'm home for any other extended time period, to help relieve the stuffiness" Solar attic vents would help get rid of the hotter air, but (a) they're really expensive! and (b) they tend to be heavy.

It's generational. I grew up in the 70's and I was punching my clown to the women in Playboy and Penthouse, so I need a little carpeting and natural bewbies.
