Re: cooling your tent or van

I don't do solar. This is the only solar fan that I think was mentioned, but it is a wonderful fan. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200514348_200514348 The solar pump from HF is just barely good enough under ideal conditions. I don't think you can do a descent cooling set up for $60....

Re: cooling your tent or van (Solar Fans)

Dear Figjam, After 4 years on the Playa, I am attempting to build your solar evaporative cooler. I swear when I saw this the first time, there was a solar pump (which I have located as well as a solar fan. So is it totally independant and runs just on solar? (Solar afr and solar pump?. Is this true?...

1. What time should we plan on getting into Ingress? 6 AM Sunday? 8 AM Sunday? Saturday night? And if we are unable to get into line at 6 AM Sunday, if there somewhere I can park late late Saturday or early early Sunday that is OK?

In the past 4 burns , we have arrived on Monday noon after spending the night in Reno. We live in the low desert of Southn Cal, so it is more than a day drive. That said, we want to ...

Re: Did you ever have a hard time boarding an Art Car?

Re: Did you ever have a hard time boarding an Art Car?

I'm giving this a nudge over to Experiences At Burning Man, since that's a better fit. To answer the question, no I haven't had any real trouble getting rides aboard art cars. Of course, I try to use a bit of common sense. I don't try to flag down or stop vehicles that are already moving, I don't a...
