Re: Worst part of 2013?

Suffering the swift setting in of a truly monstrous headcold during the excruciatingly slow traffic all the way from BRC to the Bay Area. My voice is still shot, but that was a nasty three days of the worst cold I've had in my life!

Re: Any word on playa conditions for 2013?

That's a bit of rain! ;D

I've Burned a few times, but never in rainy conditions, sounds exciting (and sticky) -- how long does it typically take for the playa to dry out enough to drive on?

Re: Guying down a canvas yurt?

Ratcheting tie downs around the walls like a tension band, or to tie the roof down to some rebar at six points around the yurt?

Or both? :D

Thanks for the tip!

Re: Guying down a canvas yurt?

Taking the above advice, I asked the guys who make the yurt and this is what they said: 1. If possible, set up the yurt so that the door is not facing into the wind. Keep in mind that even a fully set up yurt can be lifted and rotated with enough people. 2. Make sure to keep the door flap and dome f...

Guying down a canvas yurt?

This year, I'm using a canvas and wood yurt, thinking of layering shade cloth under the canvas for extra protection from the sun. It's going to look great and is plenty spacious (~14 ft diameter) for us, but any suggestions on how to guy this baby down?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks! It was definitely the start of a new camp tradition. Unfortunately, finances being what they are (as in, just short of ticket funds) I won't be contributing to BM this year.

See you next year, though!

My favorite was Camp Remember's 'Playa Punch' -- when we took a rolling cooler, added a little of everything we had on hand, and rolled it over towards Distrikt, handing out some of our already delicious concoction with fellow burners one beautiful clear day. Others partook and added something to th...

Awesome, I'm actually going to be in New York City Oct 9-12 (going to a concert at Radio City Music Hall). When's the Decompression? I'll try to make it there so you know I'm not a sock puppet!

A resume, huh? What do you want to know?

Identical Twin Sisters (Yes, Twins!) Do 2010 or BUST!

One week ago (Sept 18 2009), I heard about Burning Man through a writer friend of mine. If it's one thing I missed about the art community while in college (I graduated a couple of years ago), it was that come-as-you-are mish-mash of interests and backgrounds. Okay, so I lied -- I also miss the crea...
