Re: Chuppah on the Playa

For some reason it didn't make it into the Artery's map. But it was there in real life, at 8:45 just out from Pink Heart.
I took it down on Friday night since it was getting so ripped up I was afraid it would blow away completely. I'm in the process of repairing it for local events.

Re: Anyone have experience with a Clam ice fishing shelter?

I don't. I'm thinking about getting one.
It would be great if it allowed me to sleep later in the morning. My current tent heats up and gets light inside before the sparkleponies have galloped home.

Re: Fantastic Way to Seal Mesh Tent Screens

Good point bolamin. My tent has two big mesh doors that can be zipped open to reveal the mesh for ventilation or zipped closed to shut out the dust. I want to seal off the ceiling mesh. My first burn in 2009 I had a tiny triangle of mesh at the top of my 2 person tent and the fly acted like a dust v...

Re: Anyone have experience with a Clam ice fishing shelter?

Thank you Jovankat!

I totally get how to make a floor for it (I would use billboard vinyl rather than blue shreddie tarp).
But I'd like to hear suggestions for waterproofing it.

Gorilla Tape?

I hate duct tape. I hate how it ends up with sticky residue all over whatever it touches. But I'm considering taping nylon fabric over the mesh on my tent because I want to be able to remove it the rest of the year. I don't have any experience with Gorilla tape. Would it hold up on the playa? Will i...

Those super fancy Shift-Pod playa shelters look like a redo of a Clam ice fishing shelter. Has anyone tried one of these on the playa? http://clamoutdoors.com/store/clam/shelters/pop-up-hub.html they make a thermal one: http://www.basspro.com/Clam-Jason-Mitchell-Elite-Series-Thermal-5000-Ice-Shelter...

Cost of Billboard Vinyl

Roughly what is the cost to buy used billboard vinyl?

In Tucson:
14'x48' $50
10'x40' $35
12'x24' $25
No waiting list here; not as many burners.

Used Billboard Vinyl is Miraculous Stuff

So huge! So cheap! So easy to work with! I get it at the local billboard company. After they take billboards down they sell them. They come in three sizes: Big, Huge, and Ginormous. It folds up to quite compact. We use it as flooring for our whole camp. We used to use old carpet which was heavy and ...

Re: Playa dreams - 2015

Year round playa dreams since my first burn in 2009. The first few years they were pretty ecstatic. There was always lots of green trees and lush water (in my first such dream I found another entrance, off to the south. You had to wade in ankle deep water under huge cottonwoods trees). A few years a...

Sounds awesome... I worry that you're using heirloom stuff that can and might get trashed... I mean, are you good with that? I'm good with that. I have little doubt that it will get pretty beat, if not trashed. I can hoard all this beauty in a closet for years and never see it, or I can offer it to...

Re: Burning Man Weddings

I'm bringing an art project this year, a chuppah made from heirloom linens, wedding gowns and lace from my great grandmother, grandmother and mom. In case you want to tie in to ancient desert wedding tradition.
It will be in inner playa, 9:00 side. Artery will be able to tell you exactly where.

It's not just for playa weddings, it's for any sacred or profane ceremony, or just to get out of the sun for a spell. A s...

Selfie Sticks?

I read Coachella has banned them.
I like this idea. Mostly because it's always better to ask a stranger to take your picture, but also because I don't want to watch the Temple (or anything else) burn through a forest of bright glowing screens on sticks.
Has the Org discussed this?
