Re: Experience with Global Vision Eliminator Goggles?

No matter what you buy, it doesn't hurt to have a spare pair. I unknowingly popped one of the lenses out on my goggles last year when I wasn't wearing them, but thankfully had a backup pair.

Re: Seeking a Large White Parachute

I've seen tons of pictures on here of parachute covered comes that were completely shredded within 24 hours due to wind. I can't remember if cutting holes to allow the wind to pass through was enough to prevent/delay wind damage. Consider instead making a covering out of Tyvek house wrap. It was ext...

I'm not an American, so I don't know how American courts usually operate, but in Canada you can get a ticket tossed out if there is incomplete/incorrect information listed on it. I would definitely talk to Lawyers for Burners and see if they can get it dismissed for you. In my opinion, this is the b...

Re: "MaxCold" coolers - 5 days of ice?

My Coleman had ice (purchased in Reno) from Tuesday to Saturday and the water/beer was still ice cold when we rolled out Sunday afternoon. The cooler stayed inside our tent trailer, which probably helped quite a bit.

I guess I sort of missed the concept if this was what it was supposed to be, but I still found it amusing. I just thought it was about people in formal attire mocking others for being "under dressed" at Burning Man. Still, it was hilarious!

Cleaning duffel bags, backpacks etc

Is there really any solution for getting the grimey feeling out of your favourite bag? Thankfully I used totes for most of my gear, but the pack that went with me everywhere is kinda gross now, as expected. If I could clean it, that'd be awesome, as I absolutely love the design of it. Otherwise, I w...

Not with that specific brand, but I have a "5 day" cooler made by Coleman and like it. At a festival earlier this summer, I used frozen water bottles intermingled with my beer and added one bag of ice on the first day. After 3 days, I had half a bag of ice leftover and the remaining beer w...

Re: What size backpack to bring?

Another thing I'll add is that I've never really been a huge fan of hydration packs...something about the sloshing of water with every step. Something happened with the 1.5 L bladder in mine and I ended up using it as a small cycling bag.

playa bike care

Since I couldn't find a single gear crusier on the cheap, I will more than likely be bringing a mountain bike (of questionable upkeep) to the playa this year. Any tips for keeping the gears/chain from gumming up with playa dust? My bike maintenance knowledge is near-zero (beyond changing tire tubes)...
