I have it on good authority that the 7 mile subway line to the airport gate from Bruno's has been renovated and will be operational again this year. Same building and same green door out back behind the gas station as in past years.

New for this year -- There is an transit fee. No more free rides. Stop by Bruno's, pay the $20 round trip (per person) transit fee and they will give you a slip of paper with a one-time-use code. There is no limit as to how many transit tickets will be sold. -- That is the good news.

The $40.00 (per person) entry fee at the airport gate remains the same.

Only green U.S. cash money accepted at both Bruno's and the airport gate. It costs money to run and maintain a subway for only 8 days each year.

Not a rumor...

"The Nevada Marijuana Legalization Initiative is on the November 8, 2016 ballot in Nevada as an indirect initiated state statute. The measure, upon voter approval, would legalize one ounce or less of marijuana for recreational use for people who are at least 21 years old. The measure would prohibit giving or selling marijuana to minors, driving under the influence of marijuana and using marijuana in public."

As a public service I will take all of your marijuanas off your hands and burn it. The burn will take place in the safety of my basement thus assuring that none of the evil weed smoke escapes out to the general public.

You're welcome :mrgreen:

Its about damn time! Big Cookie has monopolized the market for way too long!
Every year from January to February their lobbyist, with their green skirts, sashes, and "badges" go door to door and stand in front of our groceries stores pushing their pro cookie propaganda. Its about time entrepreneurs like Little Debbie and Sara Lee got a chance!

illy dilly you are SOOOOOO right on.

Big Cookie has even fucked things up at the North Pole in December. They're ripping off Santa's labor force to go work for Keebler with chocolate breaks. Santa can't afford it, so he's caught in a bind getting the toys out.

If it weren't for the secret society of Santa's helpers, Santa would be royally screwed. And now Santa prefers milk and brownies when he drops off the toys. It's just one small way of fighting back.

I hear the trip from Fernley to the base of the Man will only take 35 sec this year. Walmart has offered the use of their parking lot as the remote Gate portal. However Greeters will still remain on the Playa.

My rumor is that nothing will be known, no progress will be had, till people see the need to notice.

Notice 10 years, notice hate, notice light, notice free coffee on your ride your bike to work day.

Awesome start.
