Or if your pocketbook's a little smaller than Bruno's $700/yearly, get yourself a small utility trailer, load your sh-tuff into it and park it at Gay's storage in Empire for $300/year. Pull it into camp and place it where you like.

Repeat yearly.

Maybe we can institute a suit against the Center Cafe for not smiling enough, while we're at it. I mean, it's the American Way, innit? Get our knickers twisted and sue! How about we all try standing up for our own selves, right at the source? Maybe refuse to give up stuff without a darn good reason....

We ran two burn barrels last year, half cord of wood and ended up with six inches of ash in each. Then again, we burned them HOT, which lessens the amount of ash produced.

A cord is 128 cubic feet or 4' by 4' by 8 feet, stacked tightly. I hope anyone ordering realizes how much wood is being talked about. good point.

Here's the skinny! Reno-Tahoe Firewood will deliver firewood TO burning man (the DPW Depot) where you/I can pick it up with a receipt from RTF. A cord of almond is $420 which is steep for firewood, but maybe not delivered firewood. They won't do half-cords, only full cords. Their number is 775 787-8...

Is Your Camp having firewood delivered?

Our camp is looking to join up with other camps, who are having firewood delivered. Last year, Radio-Free Valhalla (I think it was) got a good deal and hauled wood in from Reno, splitting it amongst other camps, including us. This year, I can't find them, so am looking for other camps who need firew...
