Re: Seeking Tips for group "cooking" on the playa

I would love a vacuum sealer but the cost of those and the cost of vacuum seal bags were not budgeted for this year. Just plum overlooked if when I put together the kitchen budget. I'm going to be putting a thermometer inside the cooler to keep an eye on the inside temperature. That'll keep me from ...

Re: Seeking Tips for group "cooking" on the playa

Thanks, Strata! I plan to have 3 spray bottles - dish soapy bottle, clean water bottle, lightly-bleached water (though I wonder if I should get food-grade sanitizer instead?) As for the soft-sided cooler idea - I absolutely love that! My only worry is that I have to first haul it from Oakland to Ren...

Re: Seeking Tips for group "cooking" on the playa

Gazpacho is amazing on playa - make it at home, freeze it solid, and serve when it starts to melt - no cooking, no clean-up, and it is cold and fresh. This is brilliant. And absolutely what I'll be doing for our lunch meal. Ty for the tip!!! Now I just need to figure out dinner & breakfast. (On...

I mean, it didn't really.

It was kind of humbling, not having gott...

12 scarves (and 2 masks) ordered!

I figured I'd want to dye/paint a bunch and give 'em out as gifts. lol. AND this way if I bring some friends/campmates, they can use some of my scarves - leaving Dye w/Dignity to dole yours out to other burners!

FIGJAM, four friends (and their S.O.'s) goin' to the Burn are all using your swamp cooler technique. I am sort've mind blown and awed at how far it has come from when you started the whole thing. Here's one of 'em https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/420049_10151011484979296_1437469089_n.jpg
