Re: Where to buy hexayurt panels? Can't find in town. Online

Thanks for the direct link "May I ask, did you even bother to read this thread before asking this question? FigJam posted the link to HD's entire inventory of panels.

Wow did not expect to see this thread resurrected. The boxes barely survived the first year- I have both carports in a yakima rocket box on the top of the bus. The was a bit more room for a tightly rolled bedroll or two.

the Bird

Hi Elliot, Great posts! It was good to meet you and see Millicent. I was inspired by Elliot & Jason's exploits over at Skoolies.net and bought a 1991 Bluebird TC2000 almost exactly a year ago. It took 6 of us to Burning Man & back rather nicely. It was wonderful to have a safe haven from the dust st...

Last year

We used 16-18" long pieces of 1/2" rebar with two 3/4" washers welded on to them to hold a pair of 10X20 cheap carports tents down. They worked great even in the worst storms last year. Candy caned rebar might be better for your application. The double washer allowed us to use rachet straps to pull ...

Flipside was great, like Hugh said it was a little short on the art side. The energy level was huge. I was impressed with the number of sound camps for a smaller event.

Flipside

I scored Flipside tickets for the first time and am really looking forward to it. Would have gone years ago but It's a bear to get tickets Have heard that Myschevia the north texas burn is small but a fun event, particularly the cooler fall weather. They still don't have a date set for '08 though.
