Thank you for the clarification Trilo. It changes how I send the invites.

Re: Directed sale?

From reading the ticketing page, it seems that every invite is valid to purchase 2 tickets, but I am not sure. Does anyone know if this is correct? ie: If I am sent an invite for 4 additional people, the total number of DGS tickets I can purchase would be 10 (myself + the 4 invites x 2).

Re: Extending Electric Mutant Range Using On-Board Generator

I have an old 36v mutant vehicle that runs out of juice all the time no matter how often I upgrade its T-105 batteries, so I want to extend its range on playa. I would like to run a small quiet Honda generator to power the vehicle's charger and charge the batteries while the vehicle runs off of the...

Re: Solar showers

I've used the Duckworks set up for the last two years and it is awesome. It kept the water hotter after sundown than my old solar shower, was easier to tote around, and the pressure worked way better. Also didn't have to hang it above my head. I also use it to rinse dishes when we take it regular ca...

Re: Drones as art

We've been talking about doing some pieces like this. At a party, a guy had made a nice airship/flying pirate ship on a drone. At Burning Man we followed one that had long LED tails and the operator was good at puppeting it so it looked like one of the hunters from the Matrix.

Re: Placement required for early entry volunteers

On the flip side, if you're volunteering so you can grab prime space before the gates open, consider yourself deterred (and yes, the space outside Esplanade/A is most definitely prime space). If location isn't really important, then G or beyond shouldn't matter. I wouldn't base volunteering on this...

Re: Placement required for early entry volunteers

I agree, I don't need to camp on the Esplanade or even A, I would usually camp on E street. There is no department camp for DMV, and I'm sure a number of people will be stuck in the same situation with other volunteer shifts in other departments. Camping beyond G because you are showing up early to ...

That Flora looks fun, and the fact that you can add sensors to it adds to its fun and experimental factor.

Yes because they have money to do it or charge camp dues in the hundreds or do fundraisers with in the camp. We have none of these. So we are asking the public to help. Why don't you ask the rest of the camp to pool their resources to pay for the booze, etc? That is how most camps pay for their &qu...

Yes.. AVOID the Coleman model and go for Igloo all the way. Coleman handle design sucks and they will break off with your first use. The Igloos are all around a better cooler and comparable in price.

Everyone has really good advice, especially Captain Goddammit. I second the trailer over RV idea, as almost everything on it is fixable (except the fridge after a point).
