Re: Walls made of Shade Cloth?

Keep in mind that the side shade cloth panels are sails. When the wind is hitting them broadside it is going to exert a force compared to a tarp or a solid wall approximately multiplied by the shade percentage. Search my posts for "wind load" for the equation. That can lead to all kinds of frame fai...

Re: Best food in Reno!

Re: Gray Water Evaporation using Solar Fountain?

Evaporation is better in the day, but good to start your evap day early and continue late - requiring changing the aim of the panels or using a battery. You will evap at night in the low humidity. With the wind a fountain is going to scatter grey water droplets downwind which is nasty. The evapotron...

Re: Black Rock City Plan for 2018

From what I've heard, the number of camps requesting placement is at an all time high, as well as the camps requesting, but not placed.
