          i'd like to see GPS coords and google maps pressed into service. because i have to get to the park well before others (for Titanium Chef) and don't want to go to the wrong place. let's see a new thread, stickied, with the location details.

DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

            You can visit the unofficial sunset park page at http://www.sunsetcities.com/sunset-park/index.html...

            OR

            Visit the Google page of it... http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...QOq3_iNDA&cd=1... Wee bit long, but it shall work.

              I think for DC15 and DC14 Iprovided a google maps links with the gps long/lat, assuming the location is the same:

              Post from DC15
              Google maps url
              Scrape from that URL provides ll=36.068653,-115.1129
              Longitude and Latitude are yours!
              Which would map out to 36.068653º N , 115.1129º W

              Follow the google maps link to a sat view of the tables, centered over view.

              Do I win a cookie? :-)

              Enjoy!

                it is not. we're in a new spot this year. and i (along with many other people, it seems) am still not 100% on where it is. hence, an overhead map and coordinate would be rocking.

                  Re: BBQ Update

                  I"m arriving 10:30am Thursday give or take head winds & air line chapter 11.

                  I could use a ride if possible. How much for a cab? How far from the Riv?

                  So what are the meet up times? When does it start?

                  Do they charge for parking if I dare say rent a vehicle? Would love to spend at least part of the day lost in the desert; love the SW. I need to see stars without the city pink in the way.

                    Re: BBQ Update

                    I dont know what time Im heading out to the BBQ site yet, I missed all the Titanium Chef action last year. I wouldnt mind getting there a bit early to kick back before the chaos hits.


                    According to http://www.taxi.state.nv.us/FaresFees.htm
                    Distance for cab ride is about 7.5 miles.
                    $3.50 Pickup Fee + 7.5 miles * 2.60 = $23

                    I think I remember it being about $16 but with gas prices going up
                    maybe the fares went up as well. Hasnt been a parking problem yet since
                    most people taxi, carpool ect.. no charge for parking. Parking is available right
                    next to the BBQ location. (Assuming its the same location)

                    As far as I know at this moment, the BBQ site is the same site as previous years.
                    Im an organizer, and I dont even have a definite on this. If I hear otherwise I will let you know.

                      Re: BBQ Update

                      Any news on exact location would be really helpful. As some of you know, myself and the other members of Team Smoke are smoking ribs and chicken for BBQ goers and will need to be at the park by about 11 am to start that process.

                      I know where we were last year, but from previous posts in this thread it seems that has changed. Any updates?

                        Re: BBQ Update

                        Thanks to all of the donations and the person willing to step up and put their name on the paper, we have cleared the permit hurdle with the park and its other requirements to fulfill that permit. The same BBQ that has sustained the last 4 Defcons will return this year with more mustard than you can handle.


                        --- organizational notes

                        As last year .. if folks want a coordinated food run, someone should step up and organize one. I chaotically tried the first few years and flooding the Sams/Costco with hackers was simply amazing, but extremely difficult to touch off. While TBBQ organizers-proper are not currently organizing a coordinated food run, I *highly* encourage one or many of the attendees to do so.

                        The one and only requirement is BYO and safety (ie, ick glass, no trashcan heap coolers, etc). If you want to share, that is awesome! TBBQ itself cannot supply food or drink.
                        if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                          Try and catch me in the hotel after lunch and I'll let you know if I have any room left in the car. I think I have obligated two seats already and not sure about the 3rd.

                          Officially at 1800 usually. However given that a lot of people show up earlier, bring sun screen and get there any time after about 1700. (6 pm and 5 pm respectively)

                          Nope. There is no charge for parking at the hotel or at the park.

                            One more week guys! Let us know the location ASAP. I would hate to show up at the wrong place.

                              Based on the following, I think its at the same place but it seemed burried in converge's post so I'm not sure... I thought we needed a place for more people

                              Because of that I think you can use what TheCotMan posted...

                              I would love to go on a food/beverage run but won't have a ride... a friend of mine came through and got a free suite for me(off site but very close) so now I have some extra cash to spend on food and drink that I would like to share.

                                Hey now! Don't bring me into this! I am not a Toxic BBQ Organizer. The only thing I run around here is, well, I don't run anything but my fingers. :-)

                                Seriously though, I am not an organizer for this event. I only provided the location that was previously used with the qualifier, "assuming the location is the same." The actual organizers for this event are listed in the toxi bbq forum, "thread view" in the lower right corner: GodMinusOne, L0nd0, KeLviN, [Syntax], che, renderman, Siviak ) These are the people that can make comments about the planning with authority. Those people and several others are the ones that do the work.

                                Devaint Ollam's reply to mine saying I was incorrect is the last good, known update on location. (Thanks Deviant Ollam.)

                                Londo is the one that mentioned a new location for this year's Toxic BBQ and then later said he would update his post with the new location. I didn't read his post until after I posted the location it had been using with the qualification, "assuming the location is the same."

                                Nothing more specific than that.

                                I think the location is going to be kept secret, and become item in the Scavenger Hunt, or maybe Clued. ]:> Maybe, this is a method they will use to limit visitors to only those that can find it, or know someone who can tell them -- kind of like how some raves worked.
