Re: Internet Access

There was zero cell or internet.
That was one of the defining elements, the isolation from the outside world.

Re: Impact Drivers

You know what’s cool, Milwaukee even has a weed wacker that uses the tool batteries. I’m probably gonna get one. One less thing I have to mess with, grab it in spring after putting it away wet last year, press the button and it goes.

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

Always bring your charger!!
Finding someone with the right charger is possible but a long shot.
Finding someone who will let you plug in your charger to charge your battery isn’t unlikely at all.

Re: Electronic Community VS Physical event

Requests like this are generally met with extreme negatives. The reason for that is everything that ever gets written about Burning Man or burners by someone who doesn’t go themselves is about 104% wrong, inaccurate, misses the mark, doesn’t ever portray things the right way. If you ever go, you’ll ...

Re: Impact Drivers

If you wanted the 1/2” drive impact anyway (they are pretty awesome) it’s a great tool.
But yeah, if it’s only for this, ridiculous overkill.
I’m gonna buy the big one myself, for truck lug nuts.

Re: Late burners looking for camp!!

You ARE a camp. Why commit yourselves to camping with people you don’t know?
There’s such a thing as “camp drama”. You don’t need it.
Go, have fun, make friends, and by the time the week is out you’ll probably have an idea who you’d like to camp with next time. Or not!

While bringing the charger and extra batteries is great, I bet one battery does all that with power to spare.

Re: Wohnmobil sharing - sharing RV as Camp

Remember that the max sleeping capacity includes folding the sofa and the eating seats and table into beds. The RV is all but unuseable when all the beds are in use.
So, make sure to figure on that.

Re: Impact Drivers

Absolutely bring the charger. Even if you haven’t got power, people around you will. Generally, if you just want to charge some batteries people with juice will be happy to oblige. Multiple adapters and sockets is a good idea not only in case of breakage but things get lost. I’d suggest since you’ll...

They also sell a King Kong big daddy impact driver that will do truck lu...

I don’t see why not, just open the door a good amount rather than a crack or the exhaust will overheat them. I’ve run mine in the back of a pickup with a canopy shell at home during power outages, but I left the hatch open.

Re: PUNK ROCK! and HEAVY HEAVY METAL!

So one thing is never mentioned on your website... do you have a way to do these tours? All it says is you’ll have a bus stop where you sit around hoping someone comes by and gives you a ride.
And if so, how do you set the tone of the cruise when it’s someone else’s MV?

And then you’re back to more people who can’t bring their own shit... which leads to more plug and play and more spectators.. maybe these solutions improve traffic but they ruin the event.
