Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

Finally, for my fifth burn, FINALLY obtained appropriate, bright-as-fuck lighting for my bike. I will admit that my bike is always minimally lit and it's nearly caused more than a few crashes. Not this year.

Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

Sketched some plans for our Monkey Hut and also made some plans for a fold-down sleeping platform extender in our home-built camping trailer. We currently share a foam mattress that's slightly wider than a twin. Though we've slept on this successfully at many other festivals, there is something abou...

Re: 7:30 Neighborhood Camps

Camp Anita will be back again this year and likely requesting 7:30ish placement, as that's where we've been the past several years. 7:45 and G last year. Top shelf cocktails from the time the first camper awakens until night falls. Plus yoga, our "Well Hung" art car (the giant coat hanger), and too ...

Re: Ramen Cart?

I met him in 2011! I was starting to crash around 3:00 AM or so (my best guess, anyway) and was out in the deep playa, and out of nowhere he rolls up and offers me some ramen (he had meat and veggie ramen!) It was, hands down, the best gift I got that year.

Re: cooling your tent or van

I'm afraid that this is probably a stupid question. I like the first design of the three - with the bucket. But, since it needs to be outside, what's the best way to run it into a tent? I'm pretty sure I'm doing the tent-inside-the-carport system this year. Seems like I might need to look into a dif...

I think a better question is: are there items that you take every year but never seem to wear? I always bring two tubs of costumes and only end up wearing 3/4 of one.

Re: Playa Boutique locations and accepting donations?

Hey there! My camp (Camp Anita) has its own art car this year (for the first time!!)

It's called "Well Hung" and it's a giant neon hanger than will roll around the playa, holding costumes for all burners in need of some sweet outfits. We'd also love any donations you have!

Made a reservation in Reno for the Monday after the Burn today.

Re: Barbie Death Camp Reno Hotel Deal 2012

Do you by any chance know if I can leave my car in their lot during the Burn? I'm coming to Reno, meeting up with friends, and either heading in on the 24th or on the 27th after helping some campmates build our art car. If I have a reservation, would they mind if I left my (empty) car there?

Holy. God.

That lineup is insane. I totally emailed Opiuo awhile back when I finally discovered his music and told him that I'd lose my shit if he came to the playa. He emailed me back and told me to go ahead and lose it. I absolutely can't wait to see him, but your whole lineup is out of control.

As I'm staying with a friend right now (but he's out of town), I went through all my bagged-up clothes and started separating out my playa attire.

Best breakfast last year was tempeh hash that my amazing campmates made with garlic, peppers, and broccoli. And potatoes. And hot sauce. God DAMN.

Barring that, I'm fine with just a cup of strong coffee and some instant oatmeal with dried fruit.
