Re: Thoughts on this minivan shade structure idea....

Three 8 foot 4x4, two 12 foot 2x6 cut in half and a 12x24 tarp, some nails, stakes, and a good amount of rope can give you a 16x12 foot A-frame shade. The Viking tent so to speak. All you need is some common sense ingenuity, learn to tie a few knots, a hammer, and your mitts. Won’t cost you much eit...

Re: laundry on the playa?

I live in, and have travelled light through, a lot of hot, humid and dusty countries. By far the best solution to "just bring 20 pairs of undies" is to NOT WEAR ANY. This only really becomes an issue if undies ARE your chosen costume but you don't want to go 100% starkers. You clearly hav...

Re: Thoughts on this minivan shade structure idea....

Anything touching the vehicle, no matter how well you tie, strap or ratchet things down, will become a very fine grit sandpaper and damage the paint when the brutal winds come in.

Re: Acoustic insulation for generators
