So... your first post is a link to a GoFundMe page with out any details of your plight? No full name, date of incident, docket #, or anything else that someone could use to see if you were telling the truth? Go fund yourself.

Re: Insurance and Liability for the 2016 event and beyond

An LLC is an excellent idea. Insurance (with someone who is familiar with the event) is even better. Just remember, if you go with some insurer who is unfamiliar with the event, and you do have some sort of incident/claim, the insurance company can fight paying it on the grounds that you were decept...

Nothing new here. FBI will send a team to any large-scale event. They've been doing it for years. They don't ever do much, which is why the "locals" refer to them as "Famous, But Incompetent." I think they're just there so if there is some sort of incident the FBI Director can say "we were there." P...

Re: Where is the "How to behave with law enforcement"

Step 1 - Be polite. Using the phrase "imperialist pig" during the encounter is a bad idea.

Re: Internet Access - Serious Inquiry <3

To the OP:

If staying connected is absolutely necessary, look into renting a satellite phone. The $15-20 or so per day (as advertised - i have not done it myself) is money well spent, and at that price should be able to work within a limited budget, and is your only reliable option.

Re: Keyed hexayurt edges to avoid taping?

After sitting at my desk and work and sketching out a few designs utilizing 2x4s, lag bolts, and door hinges, it is the opinion of this non-engineer that for the sake of simplicity, you should just use tape.

Sometimes, you just have to go with what works.

Re: BM Transport - Buying a truck?

How much weight are you looking to transport?

A $10k budget gives you many options.

Ever think of pricing a used school bus and removing the seats?

Cheap (a relative term) , and plenty of room for cargo. And it should be a lot less than $10k.
