SarahAnn, do you have a ticket to Burning Man yet, or are you waiting to get all the details worked out before trying for one?

Re: Designed with no seat (cannot be a modified vehicle with the seat removed)

There are all sorts of new motorized vehicles being sold over the past few years that were not on the market when the event started. This was largely unregulated on the playa and OF COURSE people took advantage and pushed for bigger and faster. With the full blessing of everyone who had to jump out ...

Re: Need Deep Cycle/Inverter Recommendations

There are many more adept than me on this, but I had a similar set up this past year. If your lights are LED's, you can use the smallest inverter--maybe 100 watts. The battery should be good for a few days. Harbor Freight actually has decent inverters. I never had one fail one me. As a test at home,...

Re: Is this the end of the Naked Bike Ride & Pub Crawl?

I received an email from Dale a few weeks back. It was essentially bemoaning the fact that since he didn't get tickets (and needed a break in any event) that he was looking for someone else to handle the logistics of the NBR&PC. With so much on my plate I can't do it, but I was wondering if anyone ...

Re: Old and Cynical

Volunteering is something that should be done starting your second year. Trust the veterans on this. You'll be mesmerized and overwhelmed by what you'll be seeing. Gifting is also another thing that should be gently approached. So many people really want to bring gifts their first year, but gifting ...

From what I've seen from several of my camp mates, There are large water tanks to refill your water supply during the week. I think you get coupons to use to fill up. Just bring your collapsible containers both small and large.
