Ithaca, NY

Hey, If anyone is around Ithaca, NY and not at the burn this year, get in touch with me and we'll have a drink and throw on some costumes. I can't make it to the burn this year (2011) and would love to find burners in the area.

And if you are going, GODSPEED! Kick ass. Have fun!

(Free Hexayurt Taken)

Thanks, but the free hexayurt (above post) has been taken. Unfortunately, eplaya doesn't allow edits to old forum messages, so I can't remove the above post to say it has been taken.

Free hexayurt, used and slightly damaged.

Hi everyone, I am not going to burning man this year and am moving away so I am getting rid of my burning man hexayurt. It needs to be gone by June 15, 2011. It uses the R-tuff board from Home depot. One side is shiny. The thickness is 2 inches. The walls are each 4x4 feet, so this is the smallest d...

I plan on going this year

I plan on going to 4th of Juplaya this year. I have never been. Scheduling precludes me from going to the main burn. I leave SF area on/about Jul 2nd on a one way trip to New York - cross-country move. If you don't mind a one way trip, I'd love to drive someone who has been. I'll cover all gas, but ...

Prep in Berkeley on Aug 15, noon-???, Hexayurts

This year I'm playing with the idea of making hexayurts and trying different ideas of structures based on hexagons. Some out of R-Tuff foam. I might try some out of wood or a mixture of wood, foam, and other materials. On Aug 15th, I'll be working on this in Berkeley, CA, USA at Ohlone Park, near ML...

Thanks for the gaffer's tape hint:


Findtape has a great website that allows side by side comparisons.
For Shurtape:

Like so

Gaffer's tape is stronger than duct tape.

Absolutely! I love the tunnels idea.

I was going to suggest honeycombing them to minimize the exposure to wind and then putting windows between the hexayurts.

Wow, that picture with the screw on pg 2 of the flashing pdf was really cool! I thought about construction flashing. No first hand experience, but looked at the 3m datasheet: http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/mediawebserver?66666UuZjcFSLXTtNxT_Mx&cEVuQEcuZgVs6EVs6E666666-- Says its good for sealing and h...

Duct Tape and heat

I'm a third time burner and am trying to figure out the sticky question of what duct tape is best and if some other tape is better. Duct tape hasn't withstood the heat of burning man that well, and duct taping over the mest of a tent that blows a low generates issues of the thing being taped wigglin...

Hexayurt Camp

Let's have a theme camp of hexayurts! Might as well gather a bunch of the hexayurting knowledge in one section of the playa. Anyone interested? --- I'm based in Berkeley, San Francisco Bay Area, CA, US. I'm hoping to run some trial run hexayurt projects in a park or the backyard of a friend's house....

You're right. The trust does need to go all ways around. I know I'm trustworthy, but nobody else does. So, if you want some proof, I'm happy to supply: 1) Contacts for the people I drove out to the 2008 burn, coordinated rides with them, guaranteed them space, and delivered. 2) Other burner friends ...

Tactile, a new theme camp for 2009

Hi everybody, I'm looking to start a new theme camp called Tactile. The gimmick of the camp will be a tactile room. It will be completely dark, be able to fit a few people, and inside we hope to put items that are interesting to touch. Grass, polished stones, hard granite, bicycle tires, human hair,...

Cover undercarriage?

I am wondering if I should try to cover my undercarriage to keep dust out of the engine area. I am pretty sure I am being paranoid. The dust isn't going to get in the engine or tranny area (at least not much). What gets in will likely be3 through air flow areas. If an I am going to be paranoid, I gu...
