Re: boil the microwave rice pouch

One of our campers lives off of pouched vegetarian food all week. Only heats them when he needs more of a comfort food kind of thing. He states it's super time efficient and not much volume of waste while shoveling with a spork.

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

If it is a MPPT charger it won't matter a huge amount but if the charger on the power bank is PWM then it is most important for the solar panel voltage to be matched to the battery bank. I would stick with panels that closely resemble what the manufacturer of the power pack recommends. I recommend p...

Re: Shade fabric HELP

Generally the darker the color of the tarp the more light it blocks... also the more heat it will collect and radiate. In my experience white tarps don't add to darkening during the day time if that is a goal. Although I love Aluminet I think putting it over the top of your tarp will yield a small b...

Now is a time to prepare for coping with the pandemic. The time for containment is over.

Best case scenario is to slow the spread enough so our health care facilities continue to operate at capacity through this wild ride.
Exactly!!!

Re: Longevity of flat top conduit structure

I've maybe replaced 4 pieces of 1" conduit on my shade structures in all the time I have been putting them up at the burn. I have 2 large conduit structures now and had my first conduit structure on the playa in 2013 or so. I've never replaced a coupling piece but I have lost some of the turn screws...

Use a ride on mower with a good engine and transmission. Mutate the hell out of it. Consider making the rear wheels duals to increase traction and flotation in light traction areas.

Re: Tarp to block heat?

Stake the it down over the 10x 20 using lag bolts, 3 links of chain and paracord. Then put 6 to 8 mostly inflated bea...
