Re: FBI on Playa 2010 FOIA Reveals

Von Bacon called it. I've worked events for years. The same agencies are at Suoer Bowls, College Bowl games, World Cup matches, Final Four... Any big event draws a similar law enforcement presence. This is a non-issue. If we want them to go away, just make the event smaller

Re: Hexayurts

I can't go this year, so if anyone wants my hexie you can have it. It's in my storage unit in Mogul, just a few minutes east of Reno. You'll need to replace the wall with the a/c and door cutouts and I have an extra sheet at my house in Truckee. This is the third one I've built. It was made out of s...

Re: HexaYurts

Is anyone else starting to sweat a little bit with all of these reports of huge wind gusts every night? I have only used my yurt once, last year, which obviously wasn't much of a test. What are the MOST stable methods of support? I used the rope halo last year with 30" rebar at every corner and rat...

Re: HexaYurts

Hi lovely people, So many nice people here were able to answer my questions about a Carport last year, and this year I'm thinking RV or Hexayurt. I had to sell the Carport when I got back as my car got towed while at the playa and the tickets and fees made me need funds quickly. But this year I hav...

Re: HexaYurts

OK, I should have windows (vents, whatever) so I'll be ok there. I think it's safe to assume any smallish space if truly sealed isn't safe to be in for any period of time. C02 buildup makes you sleepy, and since I would be sleeping in there already, there's no way to know if you are going to die fr...

Re: HexaYurts

I can't speak as an expert, but I put vents on each side of my H15. I used two A/C filters per side with a shroud built over them so the wind/sand never blew directly at it. It was also minimized the light. They worked great and when it was windy, I could feel the air moving Thanks for the response...

I get that taping the hell out of the seams and taping the floor tarp to the walls is important to minimize dust, but with a basic setup (No windows, just a door) do I need to worry about CO2 buildup inside if I'm in there for long periods?

Re: HexaYurts

You should be fine building an H15 out of 1". I would just make sure you alternate the short pieces so you don't have a seam running around your yurt. I originally went with 2" thick panels for the R values. The 1" has a value of 6 and 2" has a value of 13.1. It's stronger and cooler, but also heavi...

Re: HexaYurts

I've seen the posts about UV light breaking down the bi-fil tape. I plan on spraying mine with UV blocking paint. I'm going to use the foil tape and a hot knife to minimize light leaking in. I used a "regular" knife last time and it created a shit-ton of MOOP and the cuts were wavy.

Re: HexaYurts

I built an H15 the first time and I'm building a new one this year. If you're building one, alternate your 2' panels so you end up with three on top and three on the bottom, you want to avoid a single seam/weak point running around your yurt. I cut my door out of the bottom portion so the top piece ...

Re: HexaYurts

I order my 2" panels through a building supply. They cater to contractors that use R-max/Thermax. On the surface, it sounds like a clusterfuck to glue panels. I haven't done it, but it sounds like something I could bugger up real fast... Try building supply and insulation companies. They deliver too.

Re: HexaYurts

My last hexayurt was an H15 built out of 2" R-Max and it worked great. I gifted it to some Swiss guys last year because I was only able to come up for a few days and it didn't seem worth the trouble and it gave me an excuse to build a new one. I'm making the new out of 2" again and I'm building a be...

Re: Positive Suggestions for Fixing What Is Obviously Broken

My feeble attempt at a solution... How about a date based ticketing system? Your ticket is good for entry only on a certain date. The theme camps, mutant vehicles, installations, art cars and such that need prior BMORG approval are issued the first batch of tickets when their camp/art is approved. T...

Re:

I made mine with 6' sides and it was so comfortable. I also used 2" thick R-Max; very sturdy and stayed cool. I'm 6'3" and I found it really spacious. I had a six foot table that was my bar/kitchen.
