Nice and objective observations.

Have to admit that this was a great burn for me.
Highs and Lows as always, but the highs definitely outweighed the lows.
Great Year and a great Burn.

My favorite quote about this: "If you don't like cilantro...you are wrong...try it again..." I use it as lettuce on my sandwiches. I make a thai pesto from it with garlic cloves, black peppercorns and...cilantro... Cilantro coulis under seared scallops and fresh corn and roasted pumpkin seed... Ok.....

Oakland Style bbq... I like the idea of the smoking with fruit wood. In KC we generally smoke with Mesquite and maybe a bit of Hickory as well. I love me some Q so I might hit one or two of those places while in the area. We get in early on Sunday and leave on Labor Day so I think we have time...

We used this in 08 with rebar and didn't have any problems. I know that there have definitely been stronger winds on the playa in the past, but it seems that enough people over the years have successfully used this as a dependable structure...

Using it again this year...

Looks like this website just received a new shipment of this structure for a pretty good price. I know the thread is a bit dated, but just wanted to share with everyone in case you were still looking. For a while, I thought this piece had been discontinued.

Great idea! Nothing like having a drink in the morning. Beer and eggs for breakfast is one of my favorite combos. An early morning bar with good conversation and mellow vibe sounds like a perfect addition. I say do it.

AntiM, Quick question for you or anyone else for that matter. Is Hushville a camp in which there are camp dues or is it simply an area in which people of like minded sensibilities group together to enjoy the week? Just curious...

I love seeing other people's photos of the burn. It means different things to different people and it is great to see it through other eyes... I always see things or people in a way that I didn't see it or experience it. Love that.
