Re: Post what you DID like about 2011 here

Wow, there's so much to list... 1) 1.5 hour entry (pulled of the highway onto gate road at 6:45 pm on Sunday) 2) Weather (mild temps, no rain, no dust storms) 3) Unexpectedly seeing the Lucent Dossier Experience at Temple of Boom Friday morning 4) Sunrise on Monday morning and finding a small group ...

Re: Top Asshats of 2011 Burning Man

Me. I'm the top asshat I met on Playa this year. Had good experiences and met wonderful people everwhere I went. Unfortunately, I got a "little" wasted and in wandering up to a MV with a bar, I stepped in between two guests to ask if there was preferred area for asking for a drink. They showed point...

Re: cooling your tent or van

If you want to be able to turn the cooler on and off with any ease, I would suggest wiring in a switch. The other option would be to attach gator clips so you could just unclip from one of the terminals. As far as connecting the wires, I suppose you could twist them together and use an electrical c...

Re: cooling your tent or van

After learning about these a year ago, I have waited till the last minute to decide I'm gonna try to make one. I know I can get all the parts locally and will have the time but have a question on connecting the fan and pump to the battery. I read through many of the pages in this post and even tried...

Re: Has anyone used these goggles before?

I stumbled across this thread trying to find feedback people had about air vents on goggles. Wasn't sure if I should tape them up and risk the fogging or not. Found it hillarious that I got almost the same goggles you all are talking about - except mine have 3 sets of interchangable lenses (dark, cl...

Re: Burning Man Tips for Shy People

Thanks for the tips. I too suffer from this affliction. I especially like the "experiment" idea to solicit suggestions from strangers on what to do and where to go next.

Re: The Old Parachute Dome Discussion

Wish I had found that before I sealed my seams. I'll pick that stuff up if/when I need to do any repairs. Thanks for the advice. Right now, things are holding well with the glue I used, it's just that the edges curl up a little in spots and I don't want it to get snagged in travel or by the wind and...

Re: The Old Parachute Dome Discussion

Melodiousdirge - great looking dome and cover. Thank you for sharing your progress and best practices. I'm making a similar dome, and am also using billboard vinyl for my cover. I'm using PVC cement to bond the seams, but am concerned about it pulling appart. It seams no matter what I to, edges cont...

Great Deals on Halloween stuff on Nov 1st

While picking up some last minute supplies I noticed that the Halloween super-stores, Spirit, have 50% off sales the day after Halloween (Nov 1). This is a great way to get cheap blacklight tubes and strings, strobes, as well as costumes and some other random party gear. Spirit is nationwide, more o...

Nice to meet you all as well too. Thanks for the advice on clothes and costumes. I have a good stash and a designer friend that is making something special for me, but you can never have too many crazy clothes! Are any of you going to be at the Decomp party on Oct 9? It will be an awesome time. I'm ...

Denver virgin, fixing that in 2011

Hey all, I'm Matt, live in Denver and decided I'm finally gonna get my azz to the Playa for 2011. I've been to the Colorado regional burn (Apogaea) many times, as well as tons of other local mountain festivals/parties, so while I may be new to BM, I'm not new to burns. Looking forward to meeting som...
