Powdered water is much easier to carry. Just rehydrate it when you get to Reno.

That's what I was looking at, Phil, although I think the one I was gonna get was 4Ahs instead of 2, and still very doable in terms of weight. Still didn't buy (or test, obviously), 'cause I couldn't get an answer out of any of the Fry's or Radio Shack staff as to the best way to charge initially. I ...

Thanks for the suggestions. The problem with a car battery is that my application is part of a costume, so I need something I can carry around with me. It's also not a costume I plan on using more than one night, in transit about the playa only, though I may use it again next year or elsewhere. I wa...

The Radio Shack clerk couldn't really help me with these questions, and of course I saw no appropriate female adapter. So if I'm just gonna snip the wire, is it obvious which is pos. and which is neg? Wish I had one in front of me, so I could determine if that's a dumb-ass q. or not... (and thanks f...

last minute electrical questions!

Forgive me if I've missed this info elsewhere on this board; I'm faced with a quick decision and am overwhelmed by the info I've slogged through here and on the web. I need to power a 117v plug-in strobe light in portable fashion. It seems the inverters I can get before leaving are all of the cigare...

In line with finally returning home this year, I'm finally downloading muzik. Does an ex-vinyl junkie good. Instead of kazaa, though, I'm using soulseek, which has gotten some strong recommendations from peeps, like, in the know (an' shit). Onto the recent listenings, not all recently released: Ulri...

Surprised no one's gotten into their preferred protein/granola bars here, since those suckers usually make up at least one of my daily meals on the playa. Maybe 'cause ripping one open during the 10 minute handi-wipedown/water refill/costume change tent pitstop doesn't quite qualify as "dining". Wel...

The PTB feel that having such a place provides a sort of transitional space for people who may not be bold enough to walk into a theme camp and start interacting to get there feet wet. That was probably the reason I hung out there so much as a virgin in 2001 (though free digeridoo lessons, an aweso...

It's not hard.

(Maybe more funny to the people who don't spend a week frequently being naked around other people frequently being naked, with much non-hardness going on.)

Figured this might be a good place to come, seeing as how I haven't stepped foot on playa since '02, and haven't stepped foot into mouth on eplaya since about the same... kinda dizzy and confused, lost my way, looking to return home. Seem to remember a fishspanker dude, whut called himself nipples.....
