Re: Carports for RVs?

I have a 10x20 Costco carport that I use as a "porch" for my RV (eliminating the worry over the rv's awning getting shredded by the wind.) The challenge, though, was adding speed rail legs to raise the height of the carport so that it would fit over the RV's house door. I measured twice, cut once, d...

Comedy on the playa

Hey all, EB here, first time, long time. I've been attending off and on since 2000 & still can't believe we're at 70k attendees. It's a good thing ticket prices haven't gone up! So I'm thinking of putting together a small camp (around 10, mixture of vets and virgins) with the purpose of hosting a sm...

Re: thinking of running a little bar on playa got any tips?

I echo all the stuff said here, but one tip that's often overlooked. You don't need a huge variety of stuff to serve. Keep that for yourself. Pick a signature drink or three, prep those and offer them. Variety and "you call it drinks" are for larger bars. For instance, if you think you're going to ...

Re: Do I need a baffle box?

If you get a Honda EU generator (or its ilk), no. If you bring a cheapie, yes... but it won't help, IMO. Honda's aren't cheap, but as Capn Goddamit would say: they're less expensive than a generator that sits dormant because you're too embarrassed to use. I think after "Stereo volume," "Generator no...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

Just a random thought, are those who were denied tickets going to be the squeaky wheels and skew the perception of how many burners got tickets? 10 people shouting is louder then 1000 people rejoicing? And not on eplaya? I'm confused by this post, AntiM. Is this not the "Didn't get tickets" thread?...

While I stipulate to calling out shitty behavior and stealing bikes is just that, I gotta ask out loud again about the virtue of the yellow bike program.

Echoing an earlier sentiment --

Volunteering at, say, lamplighters or the Coffeehouse or Greeters, is a GREAT way to lose the butterflies because you're DOING something.

This is a fools errand. If you've been before then you know it will be impossible to "experience" burning man without going out amongst others. Is it possible to keep someone locked in an RV all day?

Hey Little Jack, I bought this same model several years ago and brought it to the playa. It's perfect for a small camp (2-4 people) but isn't big enough for a larger group.

Couple thoughts -- 1.) You don't need a fence. Not for two people in a rental van. If a drunk is going to stumble somewhere (this is from experience) it's going to be toward something shiny or curvy. If you're there, you shoo them away. If you're not there, a fence isn't going to keep them out. For ...
