Re: 2016 Playa Conditions

Thanks Lucky420! I have an MV with small tires and playa drifts make it very hard to get around.

2016 Playa Conditions

Could anyone give me an update on playa conditions? Hoping the winter snow pack and rain will equate to a hard packed playa!

Re: How fast is the Pre-Sale supposed to be sold out

I'm amazed that I got in right at launch and got my tickets without a problem! I'm even more surprised that tickets are still available 4.5 hours after the opening. Dude in my office just scored 4 of them!

Re: MV's Computer Filters

Trilo, thanks for the hot tips. Our MV is a night time only machine so, hopefully, heat should not be a problem. As you mentioned, our biggest concern is the corrosive dust. We have found some keyboard and screen skins but there is nothing on the market specifically to keep dust out of the fan/intak...

Re: MV's Computer Filters

Token & Capt thank you for the replies. Unfortunately I cannot use a tablet for the applications we're using. The box idea with the filters/fans and giving the machine a daily scrubbing sounds like the plan!

MV's Computer Filters

For the first time our MV's visuals will be run by a laptop computer. If the computer fails, so does our MV. Does anyone have any experience/ideas on keeping the dust out of a computer on the playa?

Re: MOOP Map Live 2013

We had the Playa-Vac art car this year. Our "vacuum" had a 36"x 5" magnetic sweeper suspended an inch off the ground to collect all metal objects dropped on the Playa. I could not believe how much we collected each night. We filled a Solo cup Burn night. The vast majority were wood screws, washers, ...

Re: Meet Beezus Christ, Super Car!

Awesome MV! We also use a Taylor Dunn burden carrier. Great vehicle except it tends to run out of juice by the time it gets across the playa. All the better reason to get out and party while it charges! Can't wait to see the Beezus Christ, Super Car!

Back Lighting Our MV

Greetings Eplayans, We are bringing a small MV this year that will be covered in lycra and backlit for a nice even glow. In the past we have used LED wall washers but they did not distribute the light evenly. I'm thinking flourescent but worried that they are not sturdy enough for the playa. Any sug...

The theme camps between F and G between 9 & 10 and 2 & 3 deserve a finger wag... Strange they are so moopified compared to the heavy traffic camps on Esplanade.

MV Registration...Up, Down, the Same as 2011?

Trillo,
You have mentioned that you are one of the team of hotties that has been going over 2012 MV registrations. With the ticket snafu, how has it affected the number of registrations, i.e. more (I doubt), less, or about the same?

We have used four canvas wall tents from 9x9 to 16x20 for the past few years. Heavy and bulky but very comfortable and very sturdy. Will last forever! The Cadillac of tents! Look up on the web Denver Tent Co. or Montana Wall Tents.

We're taking our 14 yr old daughter this year and have a pretty strict set of guidelines for her. She will have free reign during the day with a few check-ins but at night it will be a different story. She will be with us in the art car and by our sides when off. Before we hit the playa she has to k...

$5.99.... Awesome score!!! We use four different size canvas wall tents...would not use anything else on the playa. When you get home, wash it really well, and more importantly, make sure it is completely dry when you store it. The only thing tougher to get out of it than playa dust is mold and mild...
