A few burns ago I was challenged to a race by a guy in a mobility scooter dressed up as an old lady.

I wonder if he thought that I was "dressed up" as an old lady.

WanderMan--I drive a three wheel electric mobility scooter. It usually does fine, but last year the drifts chewed through the power in minutes, making it basically worthless. Luckily I can walk a bit, and I camp with a group that brings a few small art cars, but even the most able-bodied of my camp-...

My advice: only bring warm clothing that is so crappy that no one would want it, or so unique that they couldn't get away with wearing it.

Barbie,
I am pretty sure that your original idea has merit. If you give the wind a way to get through, your roof should last longer. I would reinforce the places where tarp is attached to metal, and finish the edges well.

I think for your first year you might want to concentrate on meeting your needs. Shelter, proper hydration, sunscreen, and food are pretty universal. If you have medical issues, be sure to be prepared for those. Goggles and baby wipes are good if a bit of comfort is important to you. If you need cof...

Vinegar will cure anything

I can wear sandals most of the time if I use vinegar on my feet every day. A small amount of vinegar in a spray bottle with water works well. A melted ice and vinegar foot bath is even nicer. I also pour a bit of vinegar in with my baby wipes, and even brush some of the mixture from the spray bottle...

Hair

I have long hair and use a spray bottle filled with water and a bit of vinegar to mist my hair and brush. I brush it out once a day, and it gets some of the dust out and makes my hair a little less stiff. I can also create playa hair-dos towards the end of the week, when my hair is getting real stif...
