That rum mixture infused with pineapples, vanilla beans and piloncillo I mentioned months ago is brewing . . . .

BM.com playa event calendar available @ BM?

I'm finding the playa event calendar here at BM.com to be very helpful. Is this information made available in some form at the event itself or should I be printing out the web pages at home?

Thanks!

About two weeks ago Big 5 Sporting Goods here in SoCal ran an ad for Suisse Sport's "Mammoth" tent model (12x10, $99 on sale for $79). I too was looking for a tent with windows that closed and this model has 'em. When I went to buy mine there was only one left at the local B5 in Huntington Beach. Ba...

Thanks eplayans!!

Before the final rush of preparation gets underway for the Burn I just wanted to take a moment and say thanks to EVERYONE on this board (including you). This year will be my first Burn and I’ve learned an invaluable amount from the people here, not just those who have responded to the handful of que...

Thanks! That's a good idea if I can't find a tent with zip panels that cover mesh areas.

If you don't mind me asking: where? how much? how big?

Feel free to email with a response if you don't want to post it here.

Tents w/ Mesh Panels / Rainflys / Dust

Been shopping for tents at local sporting good shops and big box stores. Nearly every damn tent I’ve found has mesh panels on the upper portions of at least two exterior ‘walls’ to allow for ventilation and/or along the top to act as a skylight. While most of these tents come with a rain fly, they d...

Re: The last 30 days before you go.

For me, the last 30 days before I am on the playa is a time of focus. Over the years its become a private ritual of mine. I spend the last 30 days cleansing myself. Preparing, exercising, meditating, hydrating, etc. Does it mean something to you, or is it just the typical "holy shit! I only have 30...

A way to wash away dust?

While I've never been to BM, a Burner passed along the following tip to me: *** When you pack for burning man, pick yourself up some white vinegar. When you get to the playa, you will find beaucoup white playa dust, which is alkaline in nature. Just mix the white vinegar with water, or use it full s...

Thanks for the info, Chai and Badger. Although I am by nature somewhat shy, and therefore usually practice hit-and-run random acts of kindess, it would probably be good for me to practice getting out from my shell. So bringing my own trash container and wait for people to finish their samples is pro...

How can one best gift drinks?

I want to ride around on my bike and gift samples of my favorite cocktail. I am concerned, however, about contributing to litter by handing out cups for people to use. The drink itself is rather strong, so I also don't want to hand someone a cup and have them gulp down the entire drink while I wait ...

Just curious, what got you into Burning Man? I guess there are two ways to answer that question: 1) The glib way: I sure as hell hope its the ticket I just bought otherwise I blew $200. 2) The honest way: I heard about BM years ago from a magazine article and it raised my curiosity but I never purs...

Gotta admit it feels both assuring and poetic that at this same moment someone literally half-way around the world feels exactly the same way.

Who was that masked man?....

<never been to BM, plan on going this year> In looking over the numerous photos of BM on this site and countless others, I've noticed very few people wear masks as part of their costume. Is this observation accurate? Is there something about life on the playa that makes wearing a mask ill-advised? O...

No need to refrigerate it. As you pour rum from the jar, just be sure to remove any pineapple that is left uncovered by liquid.

Take a one-gallon glass ‘sun tea’ jar and pour in 1 liter of Bacardi light rum, 1 liter of Bacardi dark rum and 750 ml of Myer’s rum. Toss in 2/3 of a cone of piloncillo (Mexican brown sugar), 2 vanilla beans split lengthwise, and as much freshly peeled, cored, and quartered pineapple as the jar wil...
