Re: Newbie Order of Things

A quick check shows that a drive from Michigan is about 32 hours on the road. Have you considered loading up the family minivan with shade, a tent and all your supplies? You would have ample room to go shopping along the way, and if you're adventurous enough, you could even sleep in the vehicle alon...

Re: Newbie Order of Things

It's hard to believe my first trip to Black Rock City would be considered "decades ago". This place is a full working city. One of the major things I leave behind is my life back home. On my first adventure, I packed everything I needed in two large suitcases---tent, sleeping bag, survival...

If anyone needs a presale ticket, there are oodles of them for sale. For some unknown reason virtually every ticket offered is a presale ticket. Any ideas?

As a first timer, burner von braun is offering you good advice. Take some time to read over the First Timers Guide and The Survival Guide in my signature below. No tickets have been released yet, and probably won't be out for a few months. It's possible that the tickets you bought are not actually t...

Black Rock City: No Politics Zone

In 2015, someone attempted to gift me a political pin. Pro/con, my views or not, it just seemed so out of place at Burning Man. It would be great to see the entire pentagon inside the orange trash fence be completely off limits to any political blather, banter, talk or chatter. As we have done for d...

Re: Steer my repair-camp theme towards aircraft support?  

I always suggest to first timers to come to Burning Man for their first trip and not be overly ambitious. You will not have access to the airport, as it's segregated from the general part of the playa area for security reasons as well as ticketing to the event. You can not bring or store fuel in you...

If you just have drinks and snacks, an inexpensive cooler would work for you.
A better cooler would be suggested for frozen foods and other things that need to be refrigerated or frozen for the week.

Theoretically it can be done. Where every second is important, I would recommend against doing that though.
