Re: Batch Cooking

I did this for the first time last year, after wanting to do it for like six years, and it was fucking amazing. We premade Thai Beef Curry, Indian Chicken Curry, and jambalaya. Then we portioned it out in 3-person meals, and froze them all. Once out there, a big hearty dinner was as simple as making...

Re: Which camp has the best coffee on the playa?

Our coffee should be pretty tasty! We are bringing it from Extracto Coffee House here in Portland, OR. They hand roast their own Fair-Trade blend that is darn good. They'll be roasting 30 pounds for us a few days before we leave, so it will only about a week old once we start serving it! We will be ...

Bamboo is MOOPy?

Hello all! Does anyone have experience with using bamboo on the playa, and it's MOOP factor, if any? We are thinking of creating a bamboo fence along the front of our camp, and want to make absolutely sure that it does not MOOP. We would be sanding down any cuts made in it, and securing it to itself...

Re: What's the best way to transport EMT?

I duct tape mine up into bundles of 5-7, and then wrap all of the bundles in a canvas drop cloth on the roof rack. I use both ratchet straps and paracord to secure the whole thing, and the canvas keeps anything from sliding out the front.

I worry about your corner joints, as using only screws or nails through the end of 2x4's is NOT a sound way to build a structure. Joists or brackets, as previously mentioned, are a...

Agreed, but wood fire is much more high maintenance than say, kerosene or propane. Also, harder to extinguish immediately, should the need arise.
