It provides 80% shade and does not xfer heat to surfaces it's in contact with. That means that you don't need to have air s...

I don't think your being critical at all. I didn't take it for a request for a forcast.

Um, no, no one "knows" what the weather will be on the playa, anyone who says they do is lying. If your not prepared for freezing cold, wicked hot, wind, rain mud and any combination there of. Your asking for trouble.

Please read the survival guide it speaks the truth...

I got mine in about a week and a half. Did you mention that it was for Burning Man? They have put a rush on all BM orders. But as you mention they may have hit a wall. Gothic Arches has the best price I've found and they were super easy to deal with.

Good luck,

Anything can happen at the burn. Even if he came with you anything would still be likely to happen. I'd be insucure as well, but I lean in that direction anyways.

Field testing is essential. You don't want to be experimenting on the playa. Got anywhere around where you live that's windy? PVC is probably a better bet, you can use simliar lenths and widths, it's lighter and will bend before it breaks, if it breaks at all. I use a carport/tarp kind of thing, but...
