Re: cooling your tent or van

Well hell, Figjam, that's my problem. My pad was right up against the bucket. I'll try rolling it a bit tighter and see how it goes.
Thanks,

Advice on leaks in the bucket cooler

Does anyone have advice on how to keep the bucket cooler from leaking through the side holes? Mine leaked something awful. I had to stop using it because the leak was forming a puddle that run into the yurt. I used the harbor freight solar pump and followed the usual directions. When it was on, it b...

Re: Transporting PVC

I've transported a monkey hut and a hexayurt to the player the last 2 years. I have one of those $300 fold up trailers. I drive a passat. It has no problem pulling the trailer, and this gives me room for my bike also. Definitely a nice alternative. I did replace the wheels and bearings after I bough...

Re: Monkey Hut measuring suggestion

I just use the center rib that runs along the top as a guide. Lay it down where you want one side, measure out your stake locations with a measuring tape and put 'em in. Then move the center rib over 12 feet or whatever and measure the distance from the pvc to 2 of the stakes you already have in. Th...

Re: Ever had an insulin pump on the playa?

I'm a type 1 diabetic, but I still take shots. On the playa I keep my insulin in my cooler with no problem. But if she does that, make sure it's not on ice. It's not good to freeze it, just keep it cool. She also should talk to her doc about adjusting her dose. The heat tends to make everyone eat le...

Figjam,
This looks great. Tell me, does it need to pull in air from outside? Would it work to just set it up inside a hexayurt? Would be a lot easier, I would think.

Is this idea (no guy wires, tposts and tape or hose clamps) something that would work with monkey huts? Are you thinking of using a hose clamp over PVC pipe? Isn't that likely to crack the pipe once the wind picks up and things start moving around?
