Re: Plug&Play Camp PlayaSkool - Camp Probably intentionally left Moop to keep deposit and legally steal money from peopl

Well you’re upset that your plug and play didn’t clean up. We’re both upset. That’s one of the problems with showing up at Burning Man and not being self sufficient: relying on others to supply you and clean up after you can and often does fail. You really didn’t pack out all your own stuff. You pai...

Italyplaya, YOU are the problem. YOU are the one who further ruined Burning Man by supporting a plug & play camp. YOU are the one who left your fucking moop, expecting someone else to clean up after you, paid or not. YOU are the one who showed up at an event where you are supposed to be self suffici...

Re: Ideating a meal prep service for BM 2019

Sure, let’s just keep commercializing it more. Make it easier and easier. Let’s encourage the guy who mostly sees this as a business opportunity. You should prepare for burning man as if no one else was gonna show up. If you can’t do that, it’s too hard for you. Little about burning man pisses me of...

Viking87 you totally don’t get this whole thing.

The reason I say that is because you’re just trying to commercialize it, and the absence of that was the whole fucking point. How did you miss that?

Re: Towing with a UHaul moving truck or van?

As for your original question, if it’s as light as you say it is a U-Haul van will pull the thing just fine. They tow trailers heavier than that all the time. As for the immediate thread drift about whether you should even do that at all... I agree with the others, you’ll spend a fortune on a U-Haul...

RGI is the same dirt rag that was publishing stories about the 747 being “mooped” on the playa. This seems about on par.

Re: Feasibility of Window AC for RV?

Roof ACs don’t involve opening up the roof. They simply clamp in where the existing 14”x14” hatch hole is. There’s nothing to it. You clean the area well, place the NEW foam gasket (you will have leaks if you re-use the old one), drop the unit on and tighten a few nuts from inside the camper. A few ...

Re: Feasibility of Window AC for RV?

Just buy a used roof AC, RVs get junked all the time and you can get a roof air cheap. It’s gonna work a whole lot better and be a lot less pain in the ass.
Order a new roof air conditioner seal from Amazon or somewhere so it seals properly. (Cheap).

You want a trailer. You don’t want your waste water riding with you in the rig on the way out. Trailers are great for a million reasons for BRC trips.

Re: Hola from Seattle!! Virgin Burner (hopefully)

If you buy an old motorhome, the most important things are: transmission, tires, radiator and make sure the fridge works.
A portable Honda generator will use less fuel than the built-in one it has. The cost of fuel isn’t an issue, it’s that you have to carry all of it with you.
