Re: How much playa dust sticks to your jeep windows?

Lots of Nevada pin stripes on the Jeep - plus a few from Utah and Arizona. A few rock dents and some deep barbed wire cuts on the front bumper where I chose barbed wire versus deep ditch. This is the first Jeep I've owned that I haven't set on it's side. Even so I prefer to not have the interior bla...

Re: How much playa dust sticks to your jeep windows?

I'm asking about the vinyl windows on a cloth top for a jeep or similar vehicle. The flexible rubber-y kind, not hard plastic or glass windows. Does it adhere well enough that you have to wipe it off, or does it get blown off when the wind gusts? On a side note... If you have a Jeep, place a small ...

Re: Ice chest and space blanket

My ice chests where under a camping table on top of two inch pieces of wood to keep them off the ground. The table was covered with a silver tarp that was just one inch off the ground. The whole outfit was also under a monkey hut. My ice were frozen one gallon milk jugs. I still had ice at the end o...

I've been getting emergency notifications all week on my phone for flash flooding in my area. Last night I got one for a dust storm! Weather in Northern Nevada is plumb crazy this year!

Re: Hof party, 2015

Ok naive foreigner here, are there actually bears there? Unlike Down Under where everything, including plants, are out to kill you, the bears here normally want nothing to do with humans. They just want food so be sure to store it away when away from camp. With all the people at the Hof it is extre...

Re: Hof party, 2015

A week and a half ago we were camping about 20 minutes from the Hof (didn't know it at the time). On the way into camp we spotted a momma bear and her cub. What is the bear situation at the Hof?

Got room for another tent? RSVPing for myself and my Virtual Burner wife :D I say virtual since she has never been but has lived it vicariously over the years thru my pictures and endless stories :D We will come up Saturday, stay overnight and leave late Sunday afternoon/evening.

After Burner

Monkey hut, tent, bike, etc. gone. So it is now official. I am an "After Burner". Fabulous memories, made lots of friends, great experiences, definitely expanded my boundaries - now it's time to move on. Never say never - who knows what the future holds but as of now - no more Burning Man.

Re: 2015 one item a day for BM list..

I didn't get a ticket and since my granddaughter is getting married the Friday of Burning Man I'm opting not to go this year. Guess that makes me an After Burner :) But I did just receive a box of Pocket MVX Dust Masks. They will be for gifting next year.
