Im not sure what my shade arrangement will be since i have a carport and I believe thats a little excessive for one person. Who knows though, maybe I will bring it and offer other people some yummy snack or something under it, get to know my neighbors that way..

You might want to consider joining one of the "villages" of such people. No shared chores or structure, but they sorta look out for each others belongings, etc. I think AEZ works something like that...although they don't allow gennies at all. I dont like genies at all so maybe I will look into that...

Solo Camping Advice?

Hi, so I've been on here for a while mainly lurking about and I finally have something to post about. This will be my third year on the playa, and my first year single and most likely camping alone. I have camped with the same group the last two years and collaborated with them on structures, food, ...

When the grommets rip out you need to sew reinforcement fabric onto the first piece of fabric to cover the hole. Sewing a patch of duct tape on also works then hammering the grommet through that.
Sorry I wasn't super clear

I have no reason to buy a generator, besides burning man, and I have nowhere to store it. I get your point about the noise issue, I looked at craigslist for generators, but didn't find any quiet ones. A generator just looks like it would be too many problems rolled into one for it to be worth me buy...

Battery Operated Fans?

So this is my second burn this year, and I almost didn't make it through my first burn. I'm extremely sensitive to heat, fair skinned, and I have some ongoing health problems that make matters worse. So I was looking up options to try and stay cool during the heat of the day, besides the huge hat, p...

So I'm part of that three dome camp that greenthumb posted, and the grommets are a b***h. We spend three or four days sewing them before the last burn and replacing old grommets. However it worked pretty well and was relatively good at keeping the dust out.
