Re: DPW looking for people to come get some bikes.

Maybe if they weren't waving knives around at innocent burners all the time more people would be inclined to leave less of a mess for DPW to deal with.

Re: Condition of Gate Road by Exodus

Once a divot or pothole forms and subsequently fills with water, every time a tire rolls through it splashes the turbid water out and makes the pothole worse.

Not exactly Science Rockets here folks.

Re: Condition of Gate Road by Exodus

I live in the country. Lotsa dirt roads and driveways. Winter time is when they get fucked up and the potholes get worse. Standing water on the road surface coupled with traffic fucks up unsealed roads.

And really, trying to mitigate dust at Burning Man?? Its fucking dusty. Get over it.

Re: Nevada legalizes recreational marijuana

FWIW, LEO's cannot legally enter or search your home without a warrant or consent. Campers, RV's and motorhomes are considered an extension of your home in the legal system.

Moral of the story: do not let the pigs into your camper/RV/motorhome unless they have a warrant.

Re: Compact Drill vs. Impact Driver for Lag Screws

Screwing a lag into the playa with an impact driver is probably way easier on your wrists than the damn sledge hammer and yanking those stakes back out. If you can use a drill, you shouldn't have any problem with the lag screws. Use an impact driver though, it will be easier than a drill/hammer drill.

Just because it's illegal to make you wait for a dog doesn't mean they wont do it anyway. Cops routinely break the law. There is nothing you can do about it at the time.
