look into vitamin C and a chemical called piracetam (available as a health supplement). piracetam especially has the capability to wake up in the morning-after with no hangover or grogginess whatsoever, be it after alcohol or mdma

another big remnder: youre at Burning Man, in the DESERT. fcuk air conditioning. get out of the RV and go find a hammock camp to lounge at in thier shade/breeze.

by the time night rolls around and youre to drunk/tired to party, it wil be nice and cool in the RV again.

gas is fairly stable. store it out of the sun, out of your tent/vehicle, and make sure you loosen off the cap to let it vent a little on really hot or cold times of day. at night, the playa can get fairly cool. but it depends what youre doing that determines if youll actually get cold.

id reccomend simply finding some simple CBRs or labrets that you are comfortable leaving in place andnot fiddling with for an entire week.

the dust SHOULDNT cause issues, but that hasnt stopped people getting infections and injuries before.

if you plan to burn that thing, remember that its not gonna come crashing down vertically. Theres a high risk of it toppling in any given direction.

consider building it around a metal core of some kind that can help "guide" the structure as it crumbles
