Re: Logistics: Pre-sale ticket, third party, burner express

This may be modestly off-topic, but I didn't want to start an entirely new thread. Three of us are driving in with early arrival passes on Saturday. One of us has his tickets at Will Call. Since we'll be in a box truck we'll have everybody's stuff. Can the one person going to Will Call, with his ea...

Re: Eplaya meet and greet 2015! Wed 6PM

Totally on the opposite side of the city from me but I could probably be convinced to make the trek over there. For medical reasons, of course.

Well if that's how we're going to play, perhaps I'll just keep the whiskey at my camp and let you two fight over who's bringing the sun tea!

Re: Eplaya meet and greet 2015! Wed 6PM

I only managed to make it to the very end of the M&G last year and missed meeting most of you :( I'll do my best to make it there earlier this year.

Any whiskey drinkers in the crowd? There are a couple of good distilleries here in CO, I'd love to bring some to share...

Re: Bike Recommendation: Huffy Cranbrook

Second what Ano said. I inherited my Cranbrook from a neighboring camp several years ago...this will be its fourth year on playa with no tune ups and no flats. Several of that camp's other bikes, however (which were gifted to other people in my camp), were barely rideable after just that one week.

Be prepared to pick up a lot of other people's moop. And bring your own TP/hand sanitizer, because the portos closer in tend to get a lot more use.

Re: Going from the burbs to inner circle...

I agree with Captain...it's louder, and there's lots more people passing by at all hours of the day, but otherwise it isn't really that much different. Plus, it usually means you're closer to wherever you might want to go, which is nice.

The playa didn't steal it, it provided that gin to somebody else. I sure hope so, anyway, because otherwise that's just a waste of good alcohol.

Re: 2014 Moop Map in HD

At least some of those red and yellow camps still have moop on their mind...our camp was yellow this year and we're not happy about it. We aren't sure what happened because we didn't leave a mess, but regardless of where the blame lies we are already discussing how we can do better next year.
