coconut oil

coconut oil is invaluable. it's cheap. good to cook with. good to grease up your cracked feet. it's wet and cooling in nature so whether you eat it or smear it on your body, it helps counter the effects of the dry desert heat. also, put just a tiny bit on the tip of your little finger and apply to y...

homemade desert drink

i'm a doula and soon to be midwife. we get the ladies to drink this when they are in labour to stay hydrated and replace electrolytes. it's way better for you than the chemicals, dyes, and ridiculous amounts of sodium and sugar in gatorade. and it tastes good: Labour-Ade put into a juice pitcher: 1/...

from canada

we're in vancouver, bc. it's about 1300km from my place to the playa, not including the driving around in towns along the way. we could do it in about 18 hours, but we take 2 1/2 days of camping and driving to make it more sane. that also gives us time to stock up on cheap american booze and other t...

Screen Houses & Tents

Those screen houses mentioned by Hollywallydoodle are total crap on the playa.

The poles bent almost completely in half, and there was no fixing ...

naps really help. sometimes you are just not going to get enough sleep at night, so nap! build a shade structure, camp on on outer-ring street, and nap away the hottest hours of the mid-day with a wet sarong draped over you if you are too hot. i like a good long evening nap, from about the time the ...

but the carcass wash is not a communal bath or shower. people do not share water. it's no more a shared shower than it is for a group of people to be sprayed down by a random passing watergun. i heart the HCW. it's all about the love. the gentle, safe, boundary-honoring touching. the volunteers and ...

hey vancouver burners...

does anyone have space in their vehicles for 1 to 4 people?

our camp consists of 8, but it looks like we might only have rides for 4... the 4 who need rides would have very little stuff with them. we are sending all our gear in one of the existing vehicles.
