Re: Playa surfers / scooters

The four wheeled surfers do not fall into the allowed categories. You do see them out there, because Gate didn't confiscate them and the BLM hasn't felt like pursuing them just yet. https://burningman.org/event/art-performance/mutant-vehicles/vehicle-rules-and-protocols/ one small pedantic point: G...

Re: Post-playa maintenance?

my biggest issue, and it's more long term, is corroded electrical connections. Too late, I found a marine spray, that seals them against salt water, so, I'd imagine it's good for dust. Bare metal will rust. I don't see the reason, to change fluids outside of regular intervals. Your engine etc. is se...

That Thing In The Desert,
The guy with the hat,
Go to the Black Rock
You'll know where it's at.

He helped to create it,
we made it our own,
Cacophonous pilgrims
But never alone.

So raise your glass high,
Through blood, sweat and tears,
A tip to "the Hat",
for all of the years.

Re: Mini Fridge? Chest Fridge? What's your zero-ice solution?

What about a propane fridge? There are even some that will do all of 120VAC, 12VDC and LPG. I have one I took out of an old camper and use it at my Hof. works great. just set it on a table in the shade, with a 5 gallon propane tank and regulator attached, and it'll be good for well over a week.

Re: Solar charging controller for truck battery: PWM vs MPPT?

Looking for some playa wisdom on our current conundrum: Our 2004 Nissan Titan was kept in storage with a small solar battery charging setup for about a year and 4 months. All was well, it would start right up when we visited it. At some point the panel failed, and our battery went flat-- we know th...

Re: Mini Fridge? Chest Fridge? What's your zero-ice solution?

good advice here, and options. I'd caution you about gluing insulation to the outside of a freezer. Some models have the heat exchanger tubing on the outside walls, and if those are insulated/covered, they can't get rid of the heat. You'd probably want to confirm where the freezer unit dumps the hea...

Late in strike week, I had occasion to watch a DPW crew take down the street sign posts and such. Then they seemed to take a break by our camp -- directly upwind, as it happened. Soon, the breeze delivered a storm of cigarette butts into our camp. Before they took their break, I walked over to them...
