Re: Burning 2019-2028 Plan - Your input requested (long)

I agree with the Captain, that an emergency evacuation of BRC would be a CF. I think BMORG should pay to have NV34 paved to 3 lanes from the 447Y to whatever our entrance is. In an emergency, 2-3 lanes could flow to staging areas on 447N and 447S of the Y. I’m fine with a smaller event too, if it co...

Re: Electrolytes for Virgins

I'm looking at my container of "lite" salt 11oz. 1/4 tsp = 1.4g is equivalent to one packet of Pedialyte powder - 350g potassium to 370mg. There are 78 1/4 tsp in an 11oz container of light salt which costs between $2-4 for the whole container. The leadinG brand of powdered sport drink dry mix has 4...

Re: Asphalt imitation on Playa

The water trucks would be up to 20 tons. They go down every major street at least once a day. The strongest geotextile fabric you could find industrially in a big city might be an approach. But that could sink into the mud on a watered street with traffic and be impossible to retrieve. If it starts ...

Re: Input on bringing my dude Big Daddy Crawler (a tracked vehicle) next year

The contact force of a tracked vehicle with the soil is very small. Estimating for that vehicle less than 3psi. That's less than a shoe and much less than a bike or a tire vehicle. You might explain that to DMV - it's counter intuitive.

As you know, try to cover your speakers with something light and reflective to make them less of a black body sun absorber. Use a good quality power line filter between the speaker and generator - the Trip-Lite ISO Bars are some. They won't be perfect in the absence of a real ground. 99% of the spea...
