things sure did slow down around these parts now that the complaints have been registered and people have vented (even if they were encouraged to do so by the LLC/JRS/whatever).

but bbb.b.but....... it doesnt seem like all that many wanted to stick around and enjoy the eplaya.. to see what it is while people arent living through a shitstorm..


*sigh*


come back newbies!!!

it's still cool when the freakouts arent happening!

They weren't just the newbies (yikes!!)

Give it time, the next *freak out* will be Feb 15th, then the lottery drawings will draaaaag it all out until June (and up until the BIG BURN!! yay! I'm gonna be there)....and the upcoming permit approval *freak out* will bring a new wave. Plus, there's the drought like winter we're having, that'll be sure to bring out the dust whiners.

Anubis and The Pier 2 are still going strong...they'll be more (we hope!)

and here is a live camera in Gerlach so you can catch this bustling metropolis when there are no burners there.

I had a PO box in Gerlach for a year. Checked it after a few months out of town, and found they'd stuffed it full of somebody else's pension checks and other mail.

Uh oh! It might be too late for numerous individuals... Those Gerlach waters, uncharted by some, dangerous for many more to come.
