Re: Thoughts on this minivan shade structure idea....

I have minivan with roof rack and use 10x12 nylon tarp . . . used it at BRC for at least six times. I park the minivan facing about 5 to 10-degrees south of sunrise so early morning sun hits the sliding door on driver's side. Tarp covers south-facing windows and the back window. Sun shade covers fro...

Good because there was no wind? It didn’t look too good to me but I left 12-hours after arriving because it was too hot.

Also, on the way in/out the dust was really thick in spots.

Re: When do PreSale $990 tickets sell out - 2018

Thanks Burner Von Braun, It has been a couple of years since my last burn, so looking forward to getting dusty again! Looks like it’s going to be very dusty this year because there hasn’t been much snow, last year I thought the rain, lake was going to make it good but locals told me it’s the snowpa...

Re: When do PreSale $990 tickets sell out - 2018

In 2016, presale tix were available at least a month after the sale opened i.e., they were still available on the same day as the main sale:

Re: Tips from someone who slept in a car, alone.

Re: Frozen cooked oatmeal?

Backpacking I would get the 5-minute oats, add dark brown sugar, fresh ground nutmeg, raisins, peanut butter, water, stir into cookie-dough consistency and add fresh fruit (peaches, bananas, blueberries, banana).

No cooking

Re: Tips from someone who slept in a car, alone.

Why is it a problem? It’s hard to make it disappear. Almost anywhere else in the world, a campsite is near absorbent soil (filled with microbial activity, and usually with plants) where it is safe and decent to dump gray water. But it’s different on the playa, on dried clay, striving to avoid conta...

Re: Rinsing off with an outdoor RV shower

I rinse off with a dishpan of water and wet bandanna. The dust in the water settles on the bottom and can be poured off and reused. (Also good for soaking your feet.) It's okay to pour out the gallon or so on the playa, dries up really quick but can be slippery if someone steps on it.
