Please name the artist who made this mystery electronica/dance song. I pulled it off of ageispolis's fantastic MeFiSwap mix, but sadly, he only knows the name: "The Hand". I don't know if it's the mystery of it, but it's my favorite track among a lot of great tracks. And I want to hear more, but Googling is is essentially impossible since there are no lyrics. According to his liner notes, he ripped it from a friend's vinyl. (Link to downsampled MP3 inside.) [more inside]

I'm going to the Sasquatch festival in George, WA in a coupla weeks. Apparently they no longer have any RV camping spots available, and none of the local campgrounds we've found will take an RV, either ... Any ideas on where we can park our RV legally near there? And any ideas on how we can get to the Gorge from the RV spot, since they say no RV parking is allowed? We are, obviously, RV newbies (it's a rental).
