boil the microwave rice pouch

Hey Burners Extraordinaire, I'm thinking ahead and was wondering about those microwavable rice pouches you see in the store now. The pouch is 460 Caleries combind that with tasty bites currie pouches (which can be boiled) it would be 750 caleries. Pretty good to start you day with for all the playa ...

Re: Sizing a Solar set up to meet the demand of a device?

Panel Tilt 40.78 degrees from level would be perfect for BRC at high noon on equinox. 31 degrees for the last week of August, but erring toward 40-45 is just fine. More tilt gathers less dust and that extra 10-15 degrees won't cost you one drop of electricity. . the panels I'm considering are the f...

Re: Sizing a Solar set up to meet the demand of a device?

[quote="Jeannie Ginx" post_id=1202330 time=1593972452 that equals 67.2 watts per hour? So my panel should be able to run this no problem? If you trouble yourself to point the panel toward sunrise before sleeping you can get 5.9A peak output 30 min after sunrise. Adjust it 2-3 times a day and you ca...

Re: Sizing a Solar set up to meet the demand of a device?

considering a second panel. Do you guys perfer to set up in parallel or series? I'm going to use a rockpals power station. So I can't decide if the volts or the amps is the most important thing to keep. Paralell increased amps and same volts series increased volts and same amps So many decisions bef...

Re: Shade fabric HELP

Thanks Canoe. yup a dark tarp is counterintuitive. I've heard so many opposing suggestions like using a white tarp since white reflects heat and such. Also thanks for the compass info. I had planned on a north/south orientation and now I have a better idea. I've already orderted the stuff to make my...

Re: Shade fabric HELP

Canoe, thanks for the input. I was going to put down a white tarp of the money hut and lay aluminet on top of the white tarp of the hut. So I have wind/dust protection with the tarp and the solar/heat protection from the aluminet. Aluminet will protect from sun but not wind/dust hence the combo meal...

Hey smart electronics burner. Lets see if my rudamentary electronics skills got this right. I want to get a 100Watt solor panel with a compatible power station. So say during the day and factor in non peak sun we should get about 80watts/hour on average from the panel The watt for your devises is th...

Re: Shade fabric HELP

thanks for the info Canoe. I was worried about a sand storm and was hopeing that a tarp under the aluminet would protect us a bit more in case we had a white out. Something to think about. I wonder if I can find a way to have my white tarp down first, something on top of that for airflow and the alu...

Re: Shade fabric HELP

i'm building my first monkey hut shade structure. I'm going with white tarp and cover that with aluminet to reflect sun rays back. I hope that the white tarp will allow a bit of light to come in around the bottom of the hut and the very top of the hut to be total shade.

Moisturizer

Hey all, what do you like to moisturize with? I hear lotions are a pain cause you can get all sticky and toss dust on top. Is it true that Grapeseed oil is a really good alternative to lotion moisturizers? I hear it won't leave you feeling sticky. Thanks Loves J PS I got paid today so I'll buy some ...

Solo Monkey Hut

Has anyone ever attempted to erect a monkey hut by their lonesome?

I might do my first burn as a solo. Want my hut to be about 6 feet tall for guests. I'm 5'3". thinking a step ladder is a must.

Love
J

PS will attempt it by myself in my yard first.

Re: Pop up shade tent and gone with the wind

After reading your comments and looking at youtube and the burner websites I'm going with a monkey hut and then put a small dome tent under it with a seating area. I love this much more. less expensive and looks like it is more wind resistant then a popup tent. I know that you need to be self relian...

How much water to bring

Hey burners Pre-PS ok found some good advice on some burner websites. so the recommendation is 1.5 gallons a day. one gallon to drink and the other half for washing, food prep and misting. So 20 gallons for one person for 10 days is just about right. the extra half gallon a day will be for that occa...

Just in case you taped up your car and have a small air leak in your cooler. I use to have a huge freezer of dry ice at work for packing...
