So how did you hook up the swamp cooler? Got any pics? I have a portable swamp cooler and a 4kbtu AC I can tale and used the AC with the Eurka, but need to come up with a more "dust resistant" setup than last time.

If you want small and light and money may an issue, buy a Trangia Stove. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trangia They work great, burn alcohol, which is the cleanest fuel you can get, and are cheap. Note that you do not have to buy the whole stove kit, Amazon sells the burner separately. Also check out...

[quote="DiveDogFLL"]I own a zodi 12v powered shower. its just ok. the problem is regulation of the heat, wastes water. now if you had a lake for a source, no problem run it till it gets to the 'right temp' and shower up. but turning it on and off gets the water in to coils too damn hot. I use it on ...

I beg to differ on the 1" is too small... As I said my 3/4" 10x20 has survived 2 trips to the playa and numerous other desert trips. As long as it's not too big, it's staked very well, and it's monitored for movement, it's just fine.

I did a 10x 20 out of 3/4 EMT and billboard vinyl top. Sides were cheap green sun shade cloth. 2 burns plus tons of regionals and it lives in front of my workshop.

[quote="gyre"]The big question is how does the Kodiak drape? How taut is it? The Springbar seems perfect. None of the Cabela's tents I looked at draped properly. Very important in wind. And harder to make than it would seem.[/quote] Well, It was nice and taught after I sprayed it down with a hose li...

As I have said it has been set up about 8 times now on everything from grass on the central coast of California (Rain and fog) Sandy Borrego desert wash with high winds, to, the sloping side of a rocky desert canyon and I have been very happy with it Calling it the Tent...

"Somebody" was wrong, Arctica only sells ice made from potable water. It may not taste like spring water, but it's totally drinkable if you take precautions like the cut jug in the cooler trick. Or use it for Super Soakers!!

Old hands hint... Solid water is available on site. it's called "ice". You buy it at arctica and carry it back to camp, but instead of just tossing it the cooler with the old balogna and cheese floating around, cut the top off a 2 1/2 gallon jug, put that in the cooler, and pour the ice in there. Th...

[quote="lilyM"]Thanks for the info! So...another idea...has anyone ever heard of using a trampoline as a tall shade structure? I have a 12' one that has a few small holes in the mat and so it is unusable for grownup jumping. It would fit nicely over my trailer and leave a larger shade footprint. I w...

I took a 300 buck Eureka in 2007 that had a mesh top. I covered the top with blanket and still got tons of dust. It was in a shade structure too. After the Playa it survived maybe 4 trips before the poles completely splintered up and I ended up replacing it with a real tent. The new tent, bought las...
