Hey Don, is Badger feeding you things to say over there or are you thinking for yourself?
For fuck's sake would you please leave me the fuck out of your self-absorbed tirades? Pop a Xanax or four and shut the fuck up at least to anything that applies to me on a personal note.
Please, take whatever spunk sock obsession you have with me along with your dead horse insistence about living with your imagined lymphoma and pound them both up your ass along with a bucket of sand you unmedicated shithat.
But there's still a few that no matter what I do, if I died tomorrow and they stood over the autopsy table to see it for themselves would still not believe things.
Your continued insistence at having cancer and people's general belief to the contrary is totally off topic here. But such is to be expected as it ultimately does end up being all about you and your assertion that you continue on a glide path to certain drama-fueled, medical meltdown of your own imagining. The topic at hand here is related to (alleged) damage to the playa not
your 'me-too-I've-got-cancer'' pity/attention solicitation fest. Please, stay on tack, argue your point(s) with those who take excpetion to them and leave me the fuck out of it.
Oh, and I am not sure that site placement matters at all considering that water covers the playa and re-levels it in the winter.
Don, actually it seems to matter to the BLM. As I understand it they're using same location placement as a means to evaluate for physical impact on the playa. I think the requirement was for a period of three years at which point they may make a change to the permitting process and allow for some migration of the event around the playa. In some ways it seems like a sword of Damocles. Insist on keeping the location the same yet be willing to suggest potential damage due to NOT allowing relocation and possible recovery. Having said all of that you're correct about the winter water level removing most physical traces of vehicular traffic. One need only go out to the playa in April, May, June, July and August (pre-event) to see that there is in fact nary a trace of road or a residual grid of BRC. Same can be said about flying over the areas as I did with our friend Zona back in July. No trace of the city although I do have July photos (aerial) of dust plumes coming off of the playa - from areas far removed from the actual event site.
