I never said I didn't know the word "sheeple." I simply stated a strong dislike for it. I have now clarified why. But, go ahead, re-edit history, seems par for the course.

I'm in Memphis.
High humidity, soil is clay and sandy.
Location is on good drainage.
Slab is in good shape, should have vapor barrier, maybe insulation.

Wood is in good shape other than wear and abuse.
It will be perfect when I am done.
Needs a light sanding only.


Don't dismiss all pine.
My old house is all wide heart pine.
Slow growth hardwood pine, hard to get since 1917.
Very much in demand around the world.

Well well well, what an epic battle this has become between the "mega-posters" and Dennis the Menace's neighbor Mr Wilson , who appears to be getting his (or her) depends in a bunch.

But back to the original theme of this thread. I've dabbled in both tents and rv's and gotta say I'm grooving on the rv scene but will still keep/use my tents for when rv's are not practical.



Next!
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

true dat, all pine is not created equal. We have ironwood and it's a pine.
Damn weed tree but makes good teepee poles. They used to make spokes for wheels, for trucks and cars, out of them.

Ah Tennessee, say hi to my sister somewhere down between Shelbyville and Murfreesboro. On second thought, Nevermind.LOL

I could suggest different products but depend your use load. Living room, covered in center with a rug? I'm liking waterbase polys these days.
Not toxic, easy clean up and easy match if you need to resurface a spot.
You gonna go naked floors all the time, I'd get stuff harder.

I did a house/hotel in New Orleans that had three thickness in the floor. The guy who built it didn't like squeaky floors so he first did cypress,(like the bricks in the street were made of before the red brick) then southern pine then oak. Serious builders in the past.

If you don't know for sure how the slab was sealed and you want to be sure I'd drill some holes and inject a silca-based sealer under the wood.
There is a product, don't know if it's available to the public, it's a commercial resin.... shoots can't find an empty can. I ask my friend and get back to you. It's used for major generator bases instead of concrete, the psi is 6 times that of cement. It's pretty amazing.
Without the sand I use the resin kit, kinda like fiberglass only it penetrates, and no fabric. It is self-leveling.

Used it on the OFFICE and this bridge, years later it's still looks good and that's outside. Two years later..

I'm converting the playa van into an RV.. This after years of sleeping under a shade.. Never had a tent at BM.. This year I only slept and used a potty in the van. Now inside use will be expanded..
Everyone knows the Doc has to be chained up in a RV late at night..

You never asked what I meant by the word as there are several meanings. But pretty much you watch TV? South Park, The Family Guy or any of the stupid sheeple game shows or contests then, guess what?

Sad when people are so alienated from their fellow humans that they use the term "sheeple." I think we're talking 1% inspiration and 99% thoughtless (yes, ironic, that) condensation.

no, what's sad is when people don't know when they are sheeple.
that's why they are....

that condensation? if the shoe fits?


AND SELF-RIGHTEOUS IDIOCY!? About a word you have no idea what my definition is. Miraculous. Must be one of them thar playa magic thingys. ha ha

because I don't want to read the self-righteous screeds of a man who says "sheeple" and you have proven that I don't have to watch him to make sure his idiocy is challenged. "

that's it. I used it to soak wood that will be getting rained on so your floors will not be soaking up that much water. Then seal it with a poly.

@Pyro could care less about your size or anyone else who needs to reference male body parts for their? enjoyment? ego?
I can't say because I'm only into women, not dicks or dickheads or one eyed stinkin fish. so you need an opinion about an RV? rent one and you'll have one. eh

Who ever hasn't stayed in a little house on the playa or prairie and crap on thosee who do? that's called jealousy, and envy.

Those who rent the BIGGEST BADDEST RV are compensating for lack of the other equipment they so fondly like to talk about. pride, amorous, sloth..
An old VW bus would work just fine. Ask me how I know?

It's not complicated. There is dust. You don't want dust in your food, teeth or your crack so shelter would be the next logical step, cave? no.
three little pigs? whatcha gonna build? Can't build? buy used and refurbish, personalize. For the $2500-$3000 for a week's rental you could buy one, fix it up and store it. Or keep fixing it up better and better for each year. Or resell it at a profit.

I make mines. if I wasn't living where I am, I would bring one.

i still may.

I've always hated the name Peter, i'll tell you why...

In the first place, he was a misogynistic pedophile who wouldnt listen to his own savior, not once, not twice but THREE TIMES the dumb cowardly schmuck ran and hid, afraid to be true to his own beliefs.

yep, peter was an opportunistic piece of shit, who rightfully so, was crucified upside down.

Secondly, it is because of peter, and his hatred and Jealousy of jesus's shorty, Mary Mag, that the modern day version of catholicism is so GAAAAAAAAAAAY and anti-feminine.

Thirdly, according to lying scum, peter supposedly caused the Great Simon Magi to plummet to earth on one of his flights around the city, levitation style, by praying to his pissant god.

this of course is Hogwash and Pure Horse-pucky, shoveled on the masses like intellectual feces, that they all too willinging cleveland plated.

You sir, are indeed a Peter.

Stubborn and Not so Bright, Hateful and Fickle, suspicious and paranoid while reveling in some kind of self annointed importance.

yes, you ARE a Peter, thru and thru.

ps....your woodwork is Amateurish and Trite at best, and has not one splinter of originality or panache.

you suck too.


goodnight old man, tomorrow is another day, and you will, let me repeat, YOU WILL LOSE THIS FIGHT IF YOU CONTINUE ON THIS TACK.


even if it takes me having to piss off the rest of e-playa doing it.

you've been warned Pops, take another shot at crypto and i will hand your wrinkly ass to you on a paper plate.
