Re: First BRC Burn ( have only done local burns) ... Hi from New Orleans!!

. Hey, HotPants! A couple suggestions, if I may. You seem to have understood that "gifting" is a fundamental concept in Black Rock City. Excellent start! Now, let me offer a couple typical examples of Burning Man gifts: You are minding your own business, when you see some stranger struggling to set ...

And my RhoadesCar has been used for the same purpose many times already. And it has extra low gears.
Hmmm.... I also have a pedal-rickshaw. Maybe I ought to take that one out of mothballs this year.

Re: To Shade or Not to Shade?

I have three Costco carports set up in my back yard, and they measure a full 10 feet wide. And you can always splay a couple legs out a few extra inches.

Oh, definitely have shade over your tent, yes.

Re: Only 6" of 24" lag screw is threaded

At 24" long, they better be at least 1/2" diameter -- to my way of thinking (though... I am not an engineer).
Regardless... it appears you are all set. See you in the Dust! :D

Human beings are a wonderful bunch, able to think independently and develop their own opinions, emotions, and habits. A minor downside… is that occasionally we suffer personality mismatches.

Re: Only 6" of 24" lag screw is threaded

What Motsky said.
And if I may add; You don't mention diameter, but I expect your 24" lags will hold just fine for your purpose.
If they had more threads... it might even be too difficult to screw them in and out. I have twisted the head off a few 3/8 x 14.
