Re: THE TRASNMORPHAGON/SUNSET TRIP seek bands to play our St

And if you get any funk, reggae, or other such danceable acts, and they need other stages to play, please refer them over to us. We'll work hard to show they're appreciated.

Re: THE TRASNMORPHAGON/SUNSET TRIP seek bands to play our St

Our camp just got a booking by using SPARK. It's a great resource. I can ask some of the bands who are playing in our camp if they'd like additional gigs at your place. Your place sounds great.

Re: Are plug and plays brainwashing the new burners?

It would totally crack me up if Paris Hilton did attend this year, and really got into the spirit and principles of Burning Man. I don't see why we shouldn't give her the benefit of the doubt when we are so accepting of many already here who openly speak out against the principles of Burning Man.

Re: Private Security

Loud, banging starter's pistols is just plain ridiculous and will not be happening anywhere on the playa. Private security, however, will be a reality at at least one plug and play camp. They have substantial property to guard of course, but mainly it's to keep the snoopers and pranksters out.

I have a friend who years ago simulcasted from his police scanner to his FM radio transmitter and broadcasted that on the playa. After a few days, he got a visit from the cops telling him to stop it.

Re: How I made an EMT pipe rack/shelves

I really like these tubs because they have holes that go through the lid and tub to lash them to the wall of the rental truck. They feel nice and strong too. They are currently on sale at HD for about 35% - 40% off. I bought some shipping labels from Office Max to label what goes in the tubs.

How I made an EMT pipe rack/shelves

Putting the EMT conduit in the rental truck and in the storage unit has always been a major hassle. If you put anything on top of the poles, you have to remove the stuff to get any poles out. Also, the stuff on the poles always seemed to slip and fall. I hope this makes things better. This may seem ...

I like the idea of a communal shade structure. Just a 10x10 EMT conduit canopy with some solar lights and a park bench looks much better than just parked cars. Maybe we'll do that.

Re: Street Name Predictions for 2013

They seem to be releasing the names of the streets with each placement notice email. It stands to reason that only the names of the streets within the placement zones would have been disclosed thus far. The name of our street is Biggie something or another. It's hard to remember.

I'd look into one of these. It's not likely to shear off in the wind due to the broad mounting surface - especially if you make a mounting plate to go on the interior side of the foam board, It can be adjusted to where your positive pressure from the swamp cooler keeps out dust and just ajar where i...

Just to make it clear for some who might not understand the RV lingo, RV hookups means electricity supplied, pressurized water connected to the RV, and big hoses to take the waste water and poop away.
