Meeting up with friends / Communications on the playa

I've heard that cell phones get no reception in BRC, and I have quite a few different friends coming from all over, that I'd like to meet up with. Problem is, between delays getting there and helping my camp set up, I doubt a meeting place / time is really going to work. I am looking for suggestions...

A one gallon jug is very useful, you should have at least one in camp. A small garden sprayer will make quick clean ups and cool offs simple. Slice an empty 2.5 water suitcase in half and you have a handy foot bath. Use the melted water from the cooler for your feet, but let it warm up first. Ice w...

Heya, I've been checking for updates periodically to see if anything new is happening with this Theme camp, but not seeing anything so thought I would ask - any of you guys coming up with any sort of ideas you'll be bringing to the BM? In another thread someone suggested to me to bring a Monkey Hut ...

So instead of going 2-3 over the limit to not look suspicious, drive 2-3 under to not give them reason. I was half way considering stopping in Reno for the Sunday night before and sleeping there, and driving in on Monday (so I get one last bed rest before the fest), but with my car PACKED full of st...

What to expect on the drive in police wise

First off before any hisses start, this question is not meant to aid in any illegal activities. This will be my first ever festival, and I have heard stories of cops lining main roads to festivals, and pulling over car after car at random with the hopes of a quick bust. I'm not worried about anythin...

Thank you so much for that lovemonkey's nest idea! :D

Once this damn snow melts in MN (if it ever does), I'll for sure construct one of these and adjust it to fit my tent! That actually looks like a really fun project! Thanks a bunch!!

The suitcase style is more like a gas can shape. One thing about the 1 gallons bottles is you can stuff them hear and there to fill in smaller gaps in you pile of stuff. The 2.5's do have a valve on them instead of opening the lid like the 1 gal bottles have. So whatever suits your needs the best. ...

Ooooh, ok. I bet I could fit 4 of those on my front passenger floor, and another 1 or 2 in the back seat somewhere, thinking bike in the trunk with clothes and extras strewn around it, tent in the back seat with lawn chairs and such, cooler and such in front passenger seat.... I think I am actually ...

Thanks so much for the response guys, very helpful :) One thing I wanted to clear up by 2.5 gallon 'suitcase', do you mean the larger bottles of water (like Culligan style), or is this some sort of unique water carrying apparatus? I'll be sure to post any other pertinent questions in here, thanks ag...

agreed! our pro-chef is italian, like most of my group, so we can think of some tasty options :) and we got time too..... Oh, you said you DO have a pro-chef amongst you, that is awesome! :D S9arky - Please let me know if tent size is going to be an issue, I don't believe it is this exact tent but ...

Few general question (Water, glow sticks, size of tent, etc)

The only mode of transportation I will have is a full-size sedan to haul all my stuff in. This means a bike, tent, clothing, food, sleeping bag, water, and all other things. Few questions: #1: What is the best way to get enough water to the event? I was considering picking up 1-gallon bottles, as it...

It actually turns out that many of the Burners from that community are already planning on staying within their own different camps, and it'd be pretty lame for the few other people to have something come up and not show, so I think I'll stick with a guaranteed camp this year ;)

My only request is no weird pseudo-healthy earth tasting food like Falafel balls or something equally as bland / experimental. I plan to bring some of my own stuff in case there is a main course I'd rather not eat (seafood), but missing a group meal because it's something waaay out there in the real...

http://www.burningman.com/preparation/event_survival/kitchens.html#large I think one main question we should address regarding group meals is if there are any vegans / vegitarians that will need special consideration? I could probably live off a buschel of apples, a case of hot dogs and burger patti...

I'm not technically a 'chef', but I have cooked in restaurants for several years, and have a pretty natural knack for making some really delicious stuff out of not many ingredients. I found a list a week ago of suggested meal plans for the festival, that was made up (I believe) from mostly non-peris...

I am definitely in! Just got the email of how the plans are coming together, and it looks great :) I had a question about the current tent I have though, it is a 9 person tent, and is probably a 15' x 10' - would this be too big for this camping site? The tent size itself isn't the huge pain, but mo...

"The Shroomery" theme camp ideas

I know there have to be several of us a going, and I'm sure we can all contribute some sort of function to pull together to make some sort of theme camp. Even people who may not yet be associated with the community, does anyone have any interest in pulling something together this year?
