My cheap little ma...

BEWARE: everytime i do this in the sake of travelling/camping i am a bit of an emotional mess a couple weeks after i was supposed to have my period, but its still wayyyy better than having to pack...

"Never look back! Cut in hard until you see two headlights in your side mirror, then cut the other way." Works great, especially when the vehicle behind you is properly parked. Must be different parking dragons, huh? :) But which mirror??? Yours or the passenger's? (living in a small town with no s...

No I do not dare :shock: you got that exactly right, ma'am, so I am real glad you threw that out here; somebody saw that :) and all y'alls questions, and sent me a private answer. So I thank you very much, really; I would n...

Oh AntiM, I remember a day when I was trying rather inexpertly to parallel park my car on a narrow street, holding up the traffic and sweating like mad, when an exasperated firefighter climbed out of his truck and hollered, "Lady! What are you trying to do?" That man had some very helpful advice for...

Gosh I really feel at home here. :D Hello! I'm also a birgin and going to the playa alone too. I was thinking about seeing if any other birgins would like to camp together. Yep, this could be good, especially in keeping the ignorant-newbie-inferiority bullshit at bay. Not that I have found any such ...

Thank you all so much!

If you're interested (and I know that many with the certs are not) you might want to volenteer at one of the med stations. The Emergency Services Department is the volenteer department you'd be working for. Decide before August, because there is a cut-off date. Thanks for the encouragement there! I...

Thank you! There's lots of good info there & in the recommended reading sections, too. I haven't gotten very far with my regional people; to tell you the truth I know the area they camp at and I think I got enough of that particular blend of mud, mosquitoes and poison ivy in my youth. :) But I will ...

Actually, I like the snarks. :D Cynical sarcasm is a refreshing tonic after a long day of sympathizing. But thanks for the warning. I might not enjoy it as much if it's aimed at me! :shock:

I want to do this

I caught the bug when Abraxas the Dragon drove up my street last month. I was busy working but my son interviewed a member of her crew and caught the magic words: Burning Man. Well. I had heard of Burning Man. I have been clicking from link to link at all hours of the night for weeks and have now de...

Has anybody put Aluminet on a Monkey Hut? Seems like that would be cooler than a tarp, and might catch less wind, but I have zero experience with any of this. Also, Ranger Dogboy recommends in his shelter suggestions here that you not stake the tarp to the ground but instead leave a 6 to 8 inch gap ...

This truly is a wonderful idea. What about the Rainbow Bridge? Will the interior be hung with banners? And what is your sound track here, Wagner or Manowar or Wagner with black helicopters and "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" ??? Or flutes and fiddles? 8) When do you start lining up the b...
