I'm a big fan of japanese food, and foilpacks of curry & pre-cooked rice can do no wrong in my book. Put the rice pak in the sun, and toss the curry in some boiling water & you're set. Especially good for the vegetarians, Tasty Bites come in a variety of flavors and are easy with very little clean u...

This year, be on the lookout for some of Dead Meat's homebrew and take a spin on the Wheel of Crap. Mike, Silver, Bender, Kay & others have made my expe...

We generally have "good seats" in the 3rd to 4th row at the Man & temple burns. I love watching the Fire Conclave, and I sadly missed that this year. I didn't want to miss the temple burn, so I biked out there just after sunset and sat right in front near some photographers' tripods. Considering how...

Have you tried Parmalat? I do believe they sell it at Raleys, which can be found all over NorCal and Reno. We usually stop at the Raley's in Carson City for last minute bread & fresh veggies. They're like a high end pavillions or a reasonable Wholefoods... I'd bet they'd carry it. I'm partial to ric...

Ditto on what everyone's said so far, especially on the gazpacho. Bring fresh cucumbers to slice up and serve with the gazpacho for a crunchy, filling treat. My fave playa treat is fresh fruit.

Twin-size down comforters are cheap, and they pack down very small. Also, a Therma-Rest pad works amazingly well for keeping your bottom half warm. A combination of those two items kept me cozy on top of a snow covered mountain, so they'd work swell on the playa.

I know it's been done before... during my explorations of the city in 2001 I followed my nose to a camp that was firing their raku early in the week. I think they used metal trash cans for firing. My sister has a kick wheel, and if you brought a gennie I'm sure you could make it happen.

Great idea!

seems to me that should be decided before you decide that you need to register. one of my pet peeves is that the registration process encourages people to want to get a reserved space, and only make a token effort at fulfilling the "doing a theme camp thing". Precisely why I'm still on the fence ab...
