Engineer 2012, welcome to eplaya!!!

Here in Colorado, I'm a drafter and Low Voltage Communications system designer. Similar but different to engineering.
As another person that knows a bit about structural engineering I can tell you that you will see some structures/art in BRC that will blow your mind. And make you leave BRC thinking "ya know, the rest of the world could learn a few things from this place"


There's a site for that too


Indeed thanks for the link, again. Amazing, really

Oh man, thanks for that. I know now for sure that I am going to love and be amazed of the structures in BRC.

Well, once you've been amazed, come stop by my camp and I'll give you a cold beer and we can discuss the amazingness.

He has a picture of me posted, I'm assuming I'm in the book, so I feel obligated. A bit odd though, he probably did ask if he could take my picture, but I surely did not sign a release or anything. I'm holding my coffee cup still in my nightie. I could have been half-awake. I don't mind, but I'm burning with curiosity.

Cool beans, though!

I think you're obligated to get a free copy not have to buy a copy.

Where on the page were you?
I must have over looked it, or not recognized you.

I couldn't find it either, and it's admittedly awkward to ask someone for a picture of herself drinking coffee in her nightie. :shock:

You're right! :)

God, I love looking at those pictures. In most instances, I think: Goddamn . . . I didn't see any of this. Was I really there?

Which is both great, and slightly frightening. There's never enough time to see everything. (Or to see it how someone else will see it . . . and then show you how you could have seen it if only you had their eyes, their patience, or their luck.)

Okay, so I did see the Gnome Dome. :lol: Just not from that angle. I came from the opposite direction, and then was very close to it, so the white on the dome much stood out more.

yeah, peel the white dots off the mushrooms (arsenic, IIRC) and they're supposed to be wonderfully hallucinogenic.

Yep, exactly! Supposed to be a muchroom!
And the Gnomes living in mushrooms is spot on! But, I don't know that its necessarily from that book, wasn't my idea, I just went with it.

Yeah, we weren't aware that we would have a corner location tell we showed up, so our camp layout had to change on the fly. If you approached walking down 3:30 out from the man towards H, it had a totally different look.

Also, I finally found AntiM!
And I must say that the caption was very delightful!

Thanx. It is.
I think lots of virgins are going every year. Maybe over 15% of the population of BRC.
