Re: The best pen

We are getting a bit technical here.

My pen of choice on the playa is a: Uni-ball (Vision) Fine. Which they say is "waterproof / fade-proof".

Re: Bright Headlights on Bikes? Possible Fixes?

I have a VERY-VERY bright light on my trike. When I am in the city and in congested traffic, I reach up on my handle bar and rotate the light down a bit. When I am out on the open playa where the night is blacker than anthracite and I need every single lumin that I can get my hands on, I rotate the ...

Re: Visit the Black Rock City Airport -- For a Gift Ride:

I just checked the Airport Shiftboard and Ride Wrangler volunteer slots begin on pre-event Thursday, August 24. As always, gift rides are 100% contingent on whether or not there are any pilots gifting rides at that particular time. Pilots are Burners just like you and gifting rides are their contrib...

Re: 2017 Black Rock City Airport - Volunteer

Two months out from the Burn, almost all entry level volunteer shifts at the Black Rock City Airport were already full. Because so many poten...

Re: Visit the Black Rock City Airport -- For a Gift Ride:

Scenic rides over the City are totally free and begging is not allowed. There is a dedicated Airport volunteer slot (Ride Wrangler) whose sole purpose in life is to match those who would like a scenic ride over the city -- with those pilots who are gifting rides at that time. The operative words are...

Re: What happens when your playabike craps out on the playa?

The reason that Yellow bikes are green?

Yellow bikes are green because they named them Yellow bikes first and when they finally got around to painting them, green was the only color spray paint that they had.

Or, at Burning Man, nothing is as it seems and everything across the line is different.

That is a very nice tent. Simple tent to erect and simple to take down. All of my deer hunting blinds have pop-out sides just like that tent.

Yup. I typed the wrong date. It should have been 2016 instead of 2017. I have been a member for the last three years. It is my understanding that what they offer is not an all-inclusive insurance policy. It appears to be a supplemental source to cover emergency evacuation costs that your insurance d...

Re: Helicopter Insurance

Last year, the notice of the company with the medical evacuation aircraft on the playa came in the July 8, 2017 edition of Jack Rabbit Speaks.

The aircraft are stationed 24/7 in a reserved parking place at the Black Rock City Municipal Airport.

THE ROAD TO BURNING MAN.... I do not always agree with everything that John "Halcyon" Styn espouses. But, I do agree with him when he says that Burning Man is not an event. Instead Burning Man is a process that begins the moment that you make the conscious decision to attend. https://youtu.be/HKpBtG...
