Re: BRC shade from sun direction/elevation

Thank you, this is amazing as I have never fully understood the best compass alignment to maximize shade. I am handling placement for our camp this year (including a variety of tent sizes, shade structures, hexayurts, vehicles, etc for 35 campers) and a 20x20 communal lounge. Maybe I can try to mock...

Re: BRC shade from sun direction/elevation

OMG this is so helpful. Thank you!

I'm curious, from all of these hypothetical scenarios, which is the one that you would suggest to keep yourself in maximum shade?

Re: Carport with closed sides —ventilation?

What about replacing the end pieces with similarly-sized shade cloth? Would that work?

Re: Driving Gear from LA to BRC -- Recommendations for rentals -- also down to take people's gear/split costs!

Hey there,

We're doing something similar this year and Ryder seemed to be cheapest but they're all kinda the same.

Also maybe try posting in the "Hauling" section here: https://rideshare.burningman.org/

Good luck!

Re: RV ride share from LA to BRC and back 8/26-9/2

Hey there, Are you looking for someone to share the actual driving or also stay in the RV during the burn? If it's the former then I might be interested! I can't say I am the MOST experienced RV driver but I have done it once from SF and once from LA. This will be my tenth burn as well but I'm all s...

Re: help transporting items from SF -> the playa

Hey Jack,

I think you should be able to pay extra with Burner Express to bring an additional item instead of a bike:

Re: Looking for a ride from LA!

Why do you have a vehicle pass but not a vehicle?

I'm not sure of my travel plans yet but will likely be driving from LA through SF and Reno to arrive Wednesday as well. This will be my tenth burn, first time staying in the French Quarter.

Re: SF => BRC by August 18. Looking for a ride or rent a car together. Ride back flexible

Heya, I have an unusual proposal: I'm flying directly from LA to Black Rock City this year but have a bunch of gear stored up in the Bay Area that I'd love to get to the playa. So essentially I'm looking for a rideshare from SF for my shade structure and bike. Happy to split gas costs etc but can't ...

Re: Burn Barrel advice

Hello all,

We are a small camp and would like to bring a burn barrel for the first time this year. We have a while to plan but no welding skills. Can anyone share simple tips for the *easiest* way to build a platform for the barrel?

Thanks!
