Re: 2019 One Item A Day For Burning Man

I got a haircut and got postcards printed. More than I expected, since my home is an explosion of mobile trike stereo parts and pieces. The one item today really should be attending to this mess. Clothes, food, furniture, bedding, housing, all ready.

Re: Best Tent

For the requirement to stand in it, I'd say all tents in that size range are going to be at least 6 feet high inside at some point in the tent... getting dressed easily height. Requirement two, to not blow over: I think a good three season dome tent with good tie outs, and stake points, for tent and...

Re: Water Storage/ Shower Situation

As a solo camper, I tried an evaporation approach one year, and never tried it again. The packed volume of the dirty ( icky dirty, mind you) evap system was larger than a simple 5 gallon grey water container. I put a small hunk of polyester batting/filter floss in the bottom of a big funnel each tim...

Re: Actual single ticket cost

2019, I purchased two tickets and one vp, I split the fees, 592.77 with vehicle pass (which had it's own $4 service fee,) 488.77 for just the ticket. With a single ticket and all it's own fees, your figure sounds about right.

Re: North Pole 30 ft Shade Canopy - seek center pole

There is a fitting at the top of the tent that the pole goes into, that would give you a measurement for the pole diameter. Image search pulled up a site that lists the tent height as 12.5 ft. What you will have trouble finding (if it is missing... you say you have all the other parts?) is the three...

Willing. I sure missed this last year. Thanks for holding on. It just means a more interesting trip. Go slow, and keep your car belly high. I missed the driveway my first year, and went far past it. I had a leo behind me and stopped to see if he needed to get by, and to ask for help with my bearings...
