Re: Outside services for camps in 2018

This is an interesting economic experiment - it is an upper-limit on supply with no change to demand. That, combined with the rule that no additional suppliers will be licensed for 2018 should produce a predictable result. Here's a thought-experiment: Suppose you had a business that was allowed to d...

53' Forklift to share

Habitat for Insanity will be using it on Wednesday 8/23 for 4-6 hours, and Sunday 9/3 for about 2 hours. Glad to share with other camps that have heavy equipment needs. (Preference given to those that can kick in some money toward the rental cost, and to our 4:30 neighbors.) Contact me and I'll try ...

Re: ERROR - code assigned to you was already used

I'm getting the same error code, as are campmates who bought tickets in the presale. We've each written to ticket support.

Re: Extendable Boom Forklift

The forklift is scheduled to arrive by Friday afternoon, though sometimes they deliver early. We can hold off using it until Saturday AM, if you're able to work in the evening.

Feel free to contact me: 1-412-973-7914

Extendable Boom Forklift

I've rented a 10,000 lb extendable boom forklift for setup and teardown. It will arrive on-playa Friday Aug 22 afternoon/evening, and will be returned early AM on Monday, September 1.

Would anyone like to go in on this with us? Cost is

Re: Midweek use of a construction forklift or cherry picker.

Habitat for Insanity will have an extend-a-boom forklift sitting doing nothing all week. (We use it for setup, teardown, and we'll probably watch the burn from it!)

Re: Heavy Equipment

Just bumping this thread to see if any other camps might need an extendable boom forklift for anywhere from a few hours to a day. I've rented one with a 58' reach, capable of lifting 3000 lb at full extension and 10,000 lb close-in. I expect that we'll need it for 5 hours, which means that we'll hav...

Habitat for Insanity - Speakers/Campmates

For two years we've focused on hand-tossed, wood-fired pizza and elaborate "shaven-not-stirred" alcoholic snow cones. We'll be doing both of those this year, but we're trying something a bit different, and I'm writing to see if there are others that might be interested in helping out. We're putting ...

Re: Heavy Equipment

By "ride" i meant ground->sky, not driving around with me up there. But, point taken.

This machine seemed appropriate for top-down dome construction: Hang the whole dome from the top vertex (or maybe the top 5 vertices; 2200 lbs is right around the safe working load of a grade 5 eye bolt.

Re: Heavy Equipment

Ok, in case it helps others: I've rented this: http://www.skytrak.com/models/10054.htm

If any other camps would like to go in on the rental, contact me - I'm hoping this makes dome construction much easier. (And I plan to go for a ride on the thing, 58 feet over the playa!)

Re: Heavy Equipment

Yeah, I'm fine with renting, or going in on a rental with another camp. I guess what I'm looking for is a pointer to which companies are used to sending their equipment to Burning Man. I can start by googling for places in Reno, but for all I know there's some company in Sacramento that always sends...

Heavy Equipment

Last year Habitat for Insanity put up our main dome using scaffolding (bottom-up construction.) This year I'd like to explore using heavy equipment instead, and hoping someone on the forum has knowledge of how this works. Vital information: The dome is a 47' 5/12 4v, weighing 2200 lbs. We'll have at...

Re: 6:00 Neighborhood camps for 2012

Habitat for Insanity checking in, 6:30 and Foxglove! By day, "Shaven, Not Stirred" - classic cocktails in the form of shave-ice. By night, hand-tossed, wood-fired pizzas using a novel oven design that reaches 750F+ (as hot as the best commercial ovens). Because of generous placement, we have a few s...

Re: Denied a pre-sale ticket??

Banks track attempted charges that were declined, not just successful charges: The bank said that no further charge was *attempted* after the $1.01.

Re: Denied a pre-sale ticket??

However when checking with my bank, they did get a preauthorization from Burning Man for $1.01 on 12/14 which was accepted, and have gotten no further preauthorization or charge attempts from Burning ...

Block Ice

Last year I organized the sno-kone event out at the man - 900+ sno kones given away at once! This year I'm planning to do very high quality shave ice, with really fine, powdery snow from a new machine I'm getting. The machine uses block ice, and it must be solid block rather than compressed. Does an...
