Triple A with the RV Plus option. Not the cheapest service in the world, but certainly cheaper than paying for a tow out of pocket. It isn't attached to a vehicle, it is attached to an individual ... you don't even need to have a driver's license. The RV option provides a tow up to 100 miles, inclu...

Dermabond is basically medical grade super glue and tends to leave much smaller scars. Why we still use stitches for many minor injuries is beyond me. In a pinch, duct tape works well for larger gashes. Super glue, duct tape, large hose clamps, an exacto knife... My playa first aid kit looks more li...

Can you get spare poles for it? Pole-repair sleeves? I have a large tent that snapped a pole in some heavy coastal winds.

What we are planning to do is put up two carports side by side and use the tie-down setup that AntiM has a picture of earlier in this thread: using rachet straps in an X pattern for all of the "exterior" spaces but leaving the two inner spaces open. That way we'll have to squeeze between the straps...

Many times the direction you park will be partially (or completely) dictated by your surroundings and camp layout.

Drive up with your tanks empty. Fill up in Reno before and dump in Reno afterward. For me it's worth the extra hassle of finding a place to do both. Our RV doesn't like the grades loaded with BM stuff and hauling extra water around just pisses it off. Gas mileage will be greatly increased. Surely en...

Don't sweat the RV haters. I think you'll find the people actually on the playa are a bit more open minded and could really care less what you camp in. The JOTS guys will pump your tanks for a small fee. Search the BM site. They will also refill with non potable water. Make sure there is a 30' clear...

My first year I didn't bring any nasal spray and ended up with a bad case of playa nose that took a couple weeks to heal.

I never seem to bring enough mixers. Everybody loves mixers.

A t-post puller with the fulcrum near the ground works great for t-post and rebar. I personally don't have the patience for the vice grip method but it works.

Both are playa tested and burner approved.
