2 months before the burn I picked up an old Diesel rig with a 14 foot box on the back. I had some good plans for that! My buddy and I were gonna haul the dome and the carport and all the rest of the goodies. The rig ran me about 3 grand, but I was stoked. Then life's shit hit the fan. I already have...

The last time I went, I pitched my tent inside of a bug screen canopy structure. It was slightly larger then my tent by a few inches on each side. It had a solid nylon roof and a mesh screen for walls. It worked great. The tent was definitely cooler then years past. I think the pocket of air does a ...

Like the guy above, I'm bringing homebrew in some big 5 gallon cans...

I haven't tried it yet, but I hear Dale's Pale Ale gets good reviews. Its a craft beer in a can.

Great Info Elliot! The stuff about the types of chain to use were especially informative. I hadn't heard of #40 chain before, but it makes sense and sounds like something I would want to use. If normal bike chain will skip and jump and derail more frequently, I'd rather not have to worry about it on...

Elliot I added the KSR just to catch your eye ;P I think I'll start with a 2 seater, and leave an open space behind to add more later, just to get the design down. I guess I just tend to approach things from a technical manner, and all the material I find just says, "Grab some metal and go!&quo...

For securing car ports, in the past we have used 1/4 rebar about 3 foot long. We drive 18 inches into the ground, through one of the holes in the circle at the base of each leg. Then we tightly wrap cord around the rebar and the leg. Then we tightly wrap duct tape around the rebar and cord and the l...

I picked up a 100ft tabe measure the other day. I thought it might come in handy on the playa.

It is my understanding that marine radar units can already do this, and that they may already be employed in order to catch people wandering around out by the trash fence.

The pool table is all wood and perfect for the playa. It's not league quality or anything, but its fun to shoot a few games on.

Last year people were playing almost every time I stopped by Swinger's. It was well used. Every bar needs a pool table!
