DMV and Art Car Registration

When we registered our art car (after waiting 4 hours) we were told that our car needed a new paint job and that we should consider doing something more artsy. The car just got a new paint job, is supposed to be ghetto, and is not "pretty art." Not to mention we've been on the playa for 12 years wit...

Not sure if you are aware of this or not, but camels used to be at burningman. Many years ago, my friend's dad brought them out. Along with guns and weapons. Return to old?

Bring some work gloves to help break down camp or help someone setup their camp. Have a non-newbie show you how to dislodge rebar and offer to do everyone's rebar. Take the cans to recycle camp. Take your neighbors trash home. Offer a hippy a bath. Don't get too messed up that people have to take ca...

Husband just showed me my plane reservations for Reno on his fancy phone. Suprised me with ticket, airfare and arranged a crash pad rv as well. The only thing I did and will do is pack my carryon. BRC. Here I come. Sorry 'bout your FOMOs!

We put tin foil on the inside of the windows and secure with blue painters tape. Half way through the event, we take out and rinse or replace the AC filter. Just be forwarned, your RV will look like a crack den. You can try and tarp it, but unless you can tie a good knot, it will rip, tear, and blow...

Good luck with that gathering. You might want to check your schedule. The Man burns on Saturday.

PS After your gathering, I hear Paul Okenfold is playing at the perimeter fence.

No, no, no. Do what you did last year, leave them at home in Arizona. Maybe your AC will die out and you can bring them to dead kitty camp for tea in 2010...I'll save you a seat by the turnstyle.

Why are you making one day ahead? You could actually start 30 days ahead, so no stress, even if you only have to drive from Reno. When you freeze stuff, just make sure not to fill your ziplocks 100% full, double bag, freeze them flat (instead of in one big rock). If you have the time, use the dry ic...

You can always not bring bikes, bring and extra $100 and buy two bikes along the way in Gerlach. Get the bike rack, but save the hassle of hauling bikes both ways. Also, don't buy ice, groceries, or anything until you get into RENO or Sparks.

Champagne-Just say no.

What ever you do, do not consume a bottle of champagne at 7 am to relieve the pressure of camp drama. it does not work and the bottle of pedialyte required to counter act it is worse than piss.

The Basics

Frozen Tamales and Potstickers. Food with flavour? Priceless. Pack all your dry goods in a cooler. Instant food gets really old, really quick. No need to refridgerate if you bring unripe: mangos, avocados, cucumbers, carrots, and onions. You will thank me for the cukes when you put them on your eyes...

Supplies

On da dome... Paint only the ends. Too much paint just flakes off. We could not afford the super duper sunblocker silver tarps, so we doubled up less expensive heavy duty silver tarps. It was ~15 degrees cooler in the dome than out. Potties... Forget the black water. The port-potties are well mainta...
