Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

Without some serious modifications to the plane they will not be able to go any further uphill, it only gets softer ahead and impossible to where they plan on parking it. Even if they did get it into place, it could be a long while (years) before they can bring it out of storage between weather, gro...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

there's no road to get where they're going and that thing is going to crush whatever it crosses. Need a permit to move it now? That's going to be interesting... I stand by my previous comments... So much for all of that "ground prep", that was fake news. https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2018/09/2...

Re: Tips and Tricks for RV's at Burning Man

Always remove as much playa as possible while its dry, using DRY methods.

Once you introduce just a little moisture into the equation everything changes, it becomes cemented to anything it's in contact with and complete removal becomes much more arduous.

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

Abandoned no, still sitting in the desert outside of the BM permit site yes.

As for an MV, no. My campmates used to have one that I helped a little bit on, but all of that changed a few years back.

PRO TIP THAT MOST OVERLOOK: Don't forget that if your generator's running like shit, you need to take the spark arrest screen out/apart and clean like new, and blow all of the soot out of the muffler before you put it back together.

Re: Tips and Tricks for RV's at Burning Man

Clean post-playa exterior glass trick: Wipe all glass and mirrors with a DRY microfiber towel, before using any water or cleaning solution, no baby wipes, no moisture, just a dry microfiber towel. I was amazed, better than washing for initial post playa drive home... no streaks.

Re: Some Man in a Van

There's at least one of those guys in Gerlach, the tickets are probably real. They buy them off of burners looking to unload before going onto playa, and then sell them to burners that don't have tickets. They're the local brokers, and at least the guy in Gerlach (that I know of) has been doing it s...

Re: rec'd route coming in from northeast

The pavement ends on hwy 34 about 15 miles to the north of the Burning Man playa access road, from there to the north there is no pavement for I don't know how far. Several hours of driving on dirt I'm sure... Gerlach is "where the pavement ends".

Re: 2018 Playa Conditions

Remember 2-3 years ago when it felt like it was 40 by midnight? That was 2015, and that's what you get when daytime highs are only in the 80s or low 90s. It didn't just feel like 40 by midnight, it was 40 by midnight. I was getting temps in the high 30s inside my tent trailer before going to bed......
