Re: cleaning canvas

Thanks all, feel I can get creative with the outdoor space I have access to and that hose attachment sounds ideal. The tent held up awesome but was surprised how saturated the canvas got with dust, assumed it'd have been a bit more repellant. Will head your advice, appreciate all the insight and pas...

Cleaning Kodiak canvas tent?

First off, so psyched I listened to the recommendations on this board about Kodiak's canvas 10x14 tent, made a perfect week on the playa even more perfect(er) ;) The tent footprint was well layed out, doors/vents were perfect for not letting in dust, though admittedly it wasn't a dusty year. Was big...

Re: Exodus 2011

To add perspective, drove away from camp along D and then down 6 @ 8pm on Sunday and hit 10 minutes of traffic before pavement. @ Reno by 11pm where I made the classy move of the week and slept in the Wendy's parking lot for 2 hours, was home in SF at 4am. 6 hours driving (fast) and 2 hours napping....

Re: $99 Plastic Car Ports?

from those with carport experience, how does this option look to you? http://www.tarpsplus.com/canopy10x20-1w92-8.html seems to be a jump up from the 100 dollar options, though don't know enough about what 18 gage, other than it's is 0.0478 inches thick, means for the playa wind. the rolls royce or ...

Re: Have 10x14 Kodiak tent, do I need a shade over it

curious, where did you find a 10x14 kodiak for $450? i bought one recently, the price seemed constant at about $600 and couldn't find anything better than a 20 buck off coupon. i'm giddy to use it, have heard some friends rave about them for a while, not too mention they seem to be a favorite item o...

Re: limited number kodiak canvas tents 30% off deluxe models

so haven't had any luck with finding a sturdy, sub $250 carport option this weekend, will give it a few more days of hunting but may end up going with this as a back up: http://www.shadeclothstore.com/depts/aluminetshadecloth.html some have talked about the 70% model lowering tent temps up to 15 deg...

Re: What giddy x 100 feels like to this BM virgin right now

a week since my initial post, would say non burning man related productivity is embarrassingly low and at times have to just sit back and laugh to myself at the medley of browser tabs I have open at any given time and what the higher 'priority' items are on my to do lists. this weekend it's been car...

What giddy x 100 feels like to this BM virgin right now

A combination of getting a recent face value ticket from craigslist after a bad move stalling on an initial purchase, continued increasing excitement amongst those I'm camping with, some recent fun clothing acquisitions, giving coworkers a heads up about my out of office time, and re-reading some po...

Re: limited number kodiak canvas tents 30% off deluxe models

da moth, sorry if i missed it somewhere else, but what size canvas kodiak did you get? seems like overkill to go with the 10x14 as it's just for me (at the moment), but then again doubt that i'd be bummed about the extra space...and is only 100 bucks more for 50% more size. also, how warm does the t...

Am a regular at the Haight and Mission thrift stores as well browse/occasionally shop at Five & Diamond, Distractions and Ceiba (Unfortunately, with more burner-type style pants, my size 34 w...

Re: Dang am excited, SF'ers 1st burn, no q's, just a quick h

Have spent time in Portland, great city, but for my interests, Boulder was a bit of a utopia. Easy access to some outstanding road riding, mtb'ing, hiking trails, within a few miles of my front door, intelligent liberal crowd and cheap living (compared to most big cities, not cheap compared to the r...

Re: Dang am excited, SF'ers 1st burn, no q's, just a quick h

Thanks for the welcoming. Yes, feel it's almost dangerous to bridle this level of excitement and sadly only have a few friends whom I can share with. And as a few of those were the one's that were once planning on coming and now aren't, it's a thin line between being exuberant and obnoxious. Illy, y...

Dang am excited, SF'ers 1st burn, no q's, just a quick hi

Long time board voyeur, things have worked out well which will enable this year to be my first burn and wanted to share how f’ing excited I am. ABSURDLY excited. Have hit the point that I’m having problems falling asleep out of a mix of sheer giddiness, list making and general visions of playa fun t...

Re: Eureka's Equinox 6 or Cabela's Alaskan Guide tent?

Excited to read a few other positive posts on the Kodiak on this forum and others, have been contemplating the big purchase for a while and think I've psyched myself up to pick up the 10'x14' model. Looks like a very impressive tent. Wanted to ask, any chance anyone has seen any discount codes on Ko...
