Re: Shave your balls NOW !!

I'm all waxed up now. Red and bumpy, but that should calm down before I hit playa.

The best pen

I am still looking for my holy grail of pens. I like to journal at burning man, and I am unsatisfied with the performance of the ballpoint pens I've brought in the past as they get clogged with playa and stop working a few days in. Sharpies and pencils work fine and those are my backups, but I prefe...

I'll make it a point to stop by the Alternative Energy Zone then. I keep wanting to make a start in solar cooking but overwhelmed by all the info out there and don't know where to begin. Thanks for the heads up!

Cut them the length you like for the height you like.

Pasta

Thought I'd share a pasta cooking method that works very well for me on playa, requires no refrigeration and produces no grey water. This makes a small batch - best for yourself and a few friends, not a camp of 50 people. https://www.budgetbytes.com/2013/05/italian-wonderpot/ I adjust the basic reci...

Silicone adhesive

Re: I had a vivid Burning Man dream last night.

I was lecturing a burgin, expounding on the (in the dream, completely valid) method of toilet approach in order to achieve a clean poop. I think it had something to do with that Squatty Potty ad that ...

Re: Capes and Cloaks

I have a cloak make out of polar fleece that is one of my favourite night-time accessories. Keeps the heat in really nicely and can be used as a blanket.

I was thinking of making a daytime one as well, but I was considering a light silk. I'd be interested to know how the metallic fabric works.

Re: An experience with these style stakes?

I've attempted to use this style of stake - it did not go well. The blade part on the bottom just made a hole that filled with loose playa and made the stake very wobbly and unstable. If you do try them I'd bring some extra rebar as backup.
