Re: cooling your tent or van

Great! I was guesstimating about 10 gallons a day. We already haul about 5 x 55 gallon drums in, so another drum is not a huge extra investment. Should I be looking at a more powerful pump too? Or should the wicking effect from the bottom take care of the extra water absorbed/used? I'm going to plan...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Argh! See, when we started off on this idea, and I started posting in this thread, we didn't have power...then we found out we could use power from the French Quarter...so I mentioned it...although, I'd still prefer if we were self-reliant. To me, it would just feel WRONG to be running an AC unit fr...

Re: cooling your tent or van

By the way, making multiple Box Cooler units may seem like a more reliable course, but we can't really afford it.. and that was the part of the point of trying a swamp cooler in our yurt instead of just forking out a fuckload of cash to a shared refrigerated truck. To be honest, the yurt doesn't HAV...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Upscaling isn't necessarily straightforward. Too fast an airflow and you could end up issues with dwell time through the filter or having to account for reducing velocity through the filter to get even flow across all of the filter, and then you're into baffles and/or velocity reduction before the ...

Re: cooling your tent or van

To scale up your design for their use: It could be problematic to know, and before hitting the playa, when you have or haven't reached a design limit of the air-flow rate vs. filter kept wet. But, you know your existing box design with air coming through a larger area of filter (more usable filter ...

Generator in SF needs fixin' - will share power in return!

Hey all Our camp owns a generator that mysteriously stopped working at last year's burn and has since been stored at a house in SF waiting for some love and attention. BUT at the moment, our camp doesn't have anyone based in SF to look after the gennie......(the gennie owners moved back to Australia...

Nice styyyyle :) SO, my camp plans to cool a 13' 10" diameter by 8' high cardboard yurt...I'm guessing it makes more sense to build a box swampy or a 30gallon trash can version with a nice powerful fan?

Black Rock City Farmer's Market wants Performers & Purveyors

Imagine, it's 8am, you're dusty, miles from your camp, parched and hankering for a slice of freshness... juicy watermelon, tangy plums, a crunchy carrot or a sweet cob of corn; where do you turn when your cooler looks like slush and your body is burning for a vitamin hit?

Around here we call them pork rinds, and they come in lots of flavors. Wal-Mart should have them, as well as any place that sells gasoline (petrol). http://www.utzsnacks.com/products/images/Utz-Pork-Rinds.jpg Heh, pork rinds. I was definitely a trucker in a past life.

Can you get pork scratchings Stateside? I was thinking they'd make an excellent salty playa snack, but I've really only seen them in small packet Mr. Porky's form behind the bar in every single pub in Britain. Not exactly bacon, but close enough (fried pig fat, oh yes) and not as greasy for carting ...
