Re: how to communicate to the outside to my business if need

There may be one other possibility, but it's really pushing the definition of "reliable": talk to one of the hams (we have several here on the board, all good folks) and see if you can work-out a phone-patch or packet data feed. I've seen them do some amazing things... and I've seen them crash and ...

Hey Chad...

This is a pretty common question that gets kicked around year after year. It has to do with overhead and gifting.

I don't know that you can make the logical leap that BMORG directly encourages scalping because they don't want to tie names to tickets.

Re: Did you ever have a hard time boarding an Art Car?

I spent a good handful of time helping people onto my camp's art car. I had a hard time boarding people onto the art car. It has a nice welcoming back porch that I'm pretty sure will fuck you up if you trip. It just screams "Jump on me, while I'm moving! I WANT TO SEE YOUR BRAIN MEATS!" Once big pie...

Re: Has the LLC ever actively discouraged late arrival?

I mooped 2 unlit cigarettes.

i.e. "Hey, nipple, come help us change fuel over." Just before I was about to light up. Set the cigarette down... come back and it's gone.

It's my fond hope that someone smoked them.
