Thanks for the tips, guys.

Playa bikes or not, we plan to recycle them for yet *another* year!

They move when we move 'em, so I say keep 'em for at least another year:-)

Bike Re-conditioning

Howdy, folks. Here are some things I've thought of in the process of getting ready to clean/repair and winterize our bikes for storage post-Burning Man: If your bike is designed so that part of your shifter or brake cables are exposed to the wind and dust, pull the wire part completely out. Rinse it...

Thanks for the input so far, folks. The gifts of food, water and ice were stuff we already gave out this year, and I plan to be ahead on food and water going in next year just in case. We gave time as well, when we stopped to help out some folks whose car broke down about 1/4 mile out of the gate. W...

Y'all's Opinions, Please

Howdy, folks. So, I'm thinking about next year, and what to bring as gift and/or barter items. Barter isn't a big issue for me, as we were about 90% self-sufficient this time round, but I'd really like to have good stuff to barter/give away if the opportunity arises. I'd like to run a few of my idea...

I just took a look at the scale Bob posted. Most of the definitions aren't very useful for the desert, lol. Still, depending on how Beaufort defined "light structure damage" or how he'd classify pop-up canopies, I'd say my initial guess of circa 40 mph for Friday evening just before the rain wasn't ...

Shade Structure Idea

Howdy again, folks. This probably belongs in a different section of the board, but I'm putting it here since Waterlyric expressed interest in my idea. This idea I've got requires a vehicle with a luggage rack on top to execute, but it's likely it can be modified to work around that. Nothing will ins...

Back from First Burn

Howdy, folks. I just signed up here today. I love the idea of a forum where I can stay connected to the BRC state of mind year-round, and perhaps learn from more experienced Burners. I usually just go by Chad in both BRC and the default world, but the "hangin' " bit is a legitimately given nick-name...
