On my unicycle I got a ton of compliments and offers to have a beer




You should have lighted up the wheel with LEDS. Surprised you didn't bring a tall unicycle.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

You're absolutely right. At least I had conventional bike lights. I don't even own a giraffe unicycle. However, I'd like to bring a penny farthing, should I return.

I assume 4k can buy a fair amount of hookers and blow. I'm sure the hookers can be paid to admire Rubix cubes, bowling pins, unicycles and penny farthings.

I hope it at least gives some idea of what it's like to ride around at night.



I am amazed you didn't get lost.

The temperature was nice at night. Around 50 I'd say at midnight. I took along way too much cold-weather clothing.




WTF do people need generators for?
These people are not camping, they are glamping.
I would only consider a generator if it was hot at nite and I needed AC to sleep
Otherwise, I am quite comfortable camping in an RV without a generator.
I just need a little electricity for lights and to power the water pump. RV battery works fine for that

Wizard’s stat padding, never seen so many double and triple posts. 🤔


Lol jk.

You can read the forum, but you're not allowed to post
You're the bestest poster but you're getting screwed by the host
You can't help but miss Nathan yet shes made to stay away
And you want her and she wants you
Greens want everyone.

The streets where people camp are very well organized. Out on the Playa you can use the Man and Temple as points of reference.

Primarily air conditioning. Some people went without.

If I go back I'll look into staying in a yurt.

For today's BM video I present another bike ride at night. This one goes along the Esplanade, which is like the Boardwalk of Black Rock City.
