Rock band camps

Who's doing rock n roll at their camps this year? We are in dire need of avoiding EDM this year and want to find places that are going to have real music to enjoy! See you next week!

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

It's a mock up (notice no axle yet) and knowing Gao, it'll be as strong as a Boeing 777 wing.

BUT I also think clearance could be a issue. Thanks for all the input...it may help!

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

Gao is constructing faster than posting, so I'd thought to help him out. As you can see, he has wheels, platform, tow bar, bike, test goddess, and cigar in place. I can confirm that he is going to use a solid wood axle made of red oak. In the photo, he's mocked up his proposed ride height (looks to ...

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

Gao loves bonding and bondage but only of a woody nature. Screw clamps are ok, but what truly gets him going is friction. In 2010, not only did he have enough bolts that would hold up a 737 wing in flight, he had to drill each bolt hole with tolerances so tight the each of the 400 bolts had to be ha...

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

Open topic for the masses: Shall Gao leave the wheels open style (playa paddle wheel) or wrap them with a thin wood strip?

It's possible that the open style may be effective though the shallow dunes...or just a dust maker? Also there are more potential playa paddle problems peddling past potholes.

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

Update here on Gao's behalf. He's mastered attaching photos to an email, but posting here is below his pay grade. Normally he has support of many minions to handle these type of details. BUT he's done an incredibly good job on preparing his wheels for the Martini Chariot! If he does as well on the b...

I spent 30 minutes on the phone this week with Ticketfly to try and change my address. They said it was too late for them, but just change it when you get your delivery email notificat...

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

Now Gao needs new wheels for his bike! Those wheels dwarf his large framed mountain bike in that last photo. I cant wait to see him tow this thing!!!
Baddassery...yes!
Bearings? Ehhhhh......since Gao himself is of Viking stature and I'm sure his 6' 5" frame can handle those little toys!

Re: Just got my tickets are being mailed email

That's what I figured. Unfortunately I need to get them to the correct address as I will be in several places over the next month. I opted for UPS 2-day air and if there's a signature required, then the tix need to go where a warm body can accept them. And NOT work where there are a bunch of wolveri...

Uh Hello! Seems that the Ticketfly site has removed the mailing dates. Tomorrow was the alleged mailing date listed earlier but now nothing. Are we transitioning to Playa Time? Anyone else getting tickets?

Re: Ideal Bike-towed bar cart

Thanks for weighing in Trilo! Agree on all counts, especialy: " Part of the joy (and sometimes the agony) of the playa is that people are welcome to try all kinds of goofy stuff. I agree with you, I think a wooden-wheeled chariot would be a massive pain in the ass. " I'll make sure that Gao keeps ev...

Where's da map?

I know that some folks will say "It was late in 20XX" or "It'll me out when its out" but, me thinks the 2015 map is late this year.

Any hint as to when it will show itself?
Tickets are already being mailed and no map yet! Waiting with baited breath....

It's good to see Engineer Gao in the mix! Let's see, wood wheels at 50 pounds each, chariot structure say 100 pounds, engineer 290 pounds :P, ice and drinks 25 pounds, we are talking some serious labor for movement to occur. But then again the rangers may impound his rig right out of the gate since ...

Oh I almost forgot another classic line from him, "I will not ask for any IDs because I can tell how old someone is. Especially the young women".

He might be fined before he gets anywhere on the playa!

HAAAAAHAAAA! Great responses and I thank you! Indeed he's been to the playa, is an adult, but a rather stubborn version of a humanoid. He has a thing about bolts and bolt patterns, but he must have missed the classes on friction. I will take advantage of the bar nearby, but was hoping to get the guy...
