Re: Dustproofing a Carport

Frankly, the dust usually isn't a problem--except for when the wind blows like it did last year. But I'd really like to be better prepared for that consequence this year. When it blows like last year, you're going to get dusty.. We had vinyl on the floor, up the inside for 12-18", with coolers and ...

Re: 2016 Playa Conditions

I'm heading up for a three night thing on Thursday. I'm expecting hot, dry and windy. We haven't had any precip for 57 days now, so all the cars are going to be creating some dust. I'm about 120 miles south and 600' higher, but pretty much the same climate as the playa. If anyone is interested in my...

Re: Thinking about Radios for your camp? Read Me First!!!

For the record, the 888s has no native keypad or display. It is a "grab and go" radio. All programming is done via PC over a serial cable. Other Baofengs have a keypad and can be pgmd manually. The 888 lacks this capability entirely. Shite! Frenchy, if you want to mail them to me, I'd be happy to p...

Does this mean I have to plug them into a computer to program grew/channel presets into them? Probably not. Programming these (Beofung) radios manually is a PITA, but the learning curve of the software and requirement of a special USB to Serial cable and drivers is probably more of a PITA, especial...

Ours has 12" wheels. I think some of the older ones have 8". I'd be nervous about one of those. Is i...

Once the owner logs into Ticketfly, he needs to "View" his order. There will be a link to "Transfer" ticket(s). Click it, add first and last name of recipient, their email and submit. The ticket is instantly transferred and appears in the recipients ticketfly account. I *just* did this with a VP. No...

Re: How do physical ticket transfers work?

Once shipped, it looks like the only way to transfer a ticket is the old fashioned way. Person to person, preferably face to face. Subsequent "owners" do not need to have it registered in their name
