Photo of receipt so you know this is a legit $990 ticket, and not a $425. Also, the rear of the ticket will show $990.

Re: Social Anxiety on the Playa, coping mechanisms.

I'm a social introvert. I get along well (sometimes? usually?) with people but I need my quiet downtime. Fortunately, the playa provides in abundance. There's tons of chill spaces for you to lie down in the shade. There's camps that offer napping areas, hammocks, chill domes etc. Or even just take a...

Re: Camelbak versus Water Canteen

I carry both and then some... I have a 3L camelbak for my H2O needs, a vacuum-walled thermos flask so that my cold water lasts longer when I'm out adventuring, and a mug that clips onto a carabiner that I use when I'm bouncing between camps that serve drinks. I don't think I could survive without al...

Re: To cloak or not to cloak?

Perspiration just evaps before you notice it. But it still happens. Which is important to note, because in some parts of your body, it doesn't evap immediately (crotch, armpits). Zinc-based sunscreen (or rather titanium dioxide + zinc oxide) is totally bomb. This is the one I use and love http://www...

Does this look secure?

I'm figuring out how to transport my trike to the playa. I got a bunch of straps and ratchets and I'm attaching my trike to the roof of my car like so. I took it on a short drive and it seemed fine but... Never done this before, so I'm looking for feedback, advise, suggestions etc. Thanks in advance...

Re: Trike carrier?

I've got a coupe. As it is, after packing for the burn, I give myself a high five and congratulate myself on my tetris skills.
Trike's definitely not gonna fit in there. I'm not THAT good at tetris :P

Thanks everyone for the input! I was going to use that same design/idea and implement it myself using ropes. Now I've got more data points to consider :) - tie it onto my roof rack - tie it to anchor points on the front/rear of the car - paint scratch... not an issue for a car that's already 14 year...

Trike carrier?

I bought myself a Worksman Port-O-Trike (the folding type) a few burns ago, and it has proven to be some of the best money I've ever spent on gear. I've always had a U-Haul to transport my trike in, until this year. So I googled around, and I found this: http://shop.terratrike.com/product-p/tt600207...

Re: Folding Tricycles on the Playa

Along similar lines, has anyone tried the Schwinn Meridian? I too am looking for a trike, and for me the $60+ savings vs the Worksman/Westport models will be rather noticeable. Thanks in advance!

@phil - Wonderful. I didn't think there would be any guylines but I wasn't sure. Seemed a little too good to be true. No ropes running around everywhere tripping me up!? :)
@Undecided - I'm not setting up the awning. Agree about leaving it rolled up.

Hi, I just got a kodiak canvas tent after royally fcking up my cheapo tent last year. I had a question about anchoring it to the playa. Where do I tie the guy lines to the tent? Or do I just use rebar instead of the included tent stakes while setting up the tent? Or...? Thanks in advance for helping...

I was in center camp one night and I heard this guy performing on stage. He was white, slim, tall-ish, wearing some kind of doctor-like outfit. He was rapping and making fun of the audience.
