If I decided not to go the dry ice route, what can I expect by way of ice meltage if I decide to buy ice from Camp Artica -- provided I keep it off the ground & in shade? Daily? Twice daily?
There's 2 of us pulling from a 40-gallon cooler.
Thanks!

In the regular world, I'm big on plans, but out on the playa, you'll find it's damn near impossible to follow any schedule. Everyone's else's suggestions are dead on. I spend most of my days biking around and seeing what I pass, whether it's the Naked Zipline, Santa Camp, or Make-your-own-pasties Ca...

Thanks Golgo for the info; I was hoping to avoid buying a carport because I won't be able to bring it back home with me & I'll just be creating more waste, plus we're trying to do it on a budget, as well. What I had in mind was tying a trap down to the top of the van and out to two 10 foot poles and...

Building shade structure off your vehicle?

Can anyone offer some advice/pic/plans on how to construct a shade structure off of my rental minivan? There's just 2 of us & I'm thinking a 12' by 10' structure should be enough to put our tent under plus a couple of chairs, but the last time I've come out to BM I was with a bunch of guys that did ...
