Re: Tips and Tricks for RV's at Burning Man

There's tons of great advice already so I only have a few things to add/emphasize. 1. Cover your windows on the OUTSIDE with plastic and painters tape either just be arriving on playa or when you arrive. If you plastic from the INSIDE dust will still get through the vents/cracks/whatever miniscule o...

Re: On evap ponds...

No showers on the last day, make it quick, every other day only... that sounds like it sucks! How could you have had room to carry the water in but not out? Haha... it doesn't really! We just don't want to put dirty/gray water back into the containers that previously housed clean water or drinking ...

Re: On evap ponds...

You will undoubtedly find pros/cons to many different ways of dealing with your water. On our first BM adventure we did the baby wipe route and visited Astral Headwash when we wanted our hair-washed once or twice. In our next 4 BM adventures we had our own evap pond. We made a collapsible wood frame...

Re: EL Wire

Ok, I completely mis-read your post. For some reason my mind thought you were asking about the lifetime of the el wire itself. With regard to batteries we have been able to run our el wire for at least a few nights in a row. I know this is not very exact, but I'd estimate it at around 16-20 hours.

Re: EL Wire

We have used some of the same strands of el wire on our clothing for 2-3 years in a row. However, we buy the thicker mm el wire (2-3mm). The 1mm tends to get damaged too easily by bending or other forces. The only time we haven't been able to make el wire work for the long term is if it's on our clo...

Re: 2015 one item a day for BM list..

Purchased a Norco Parkland trike.. now to modify the back basket into a rear facing seat, and add an eclectic motor. I'll be burning in style this year. Good luck on the trike conversion! We converted a trike for our 4th burn last year and it was like riding in style. Added a rear mounted seat wher...

Re: Water help

I assume you may have seen this thread? There is a section on water and type of water bladder to use when traveling on a motorcycle. Not sure if this what you're using or not but thought I'd pass it along.

Re: Best Time to Arrive

Wanted to check if anyone has stayed in the city of Lovelock. Anything we should know? We are thinking of stopping there the night before we head to the gate to get some sleep (coming from MN) We've stayed in Lovelock and are planning on staying there again. In 2012 we stayed at the Cadillac Inn bu...

Porch of judgement... I love it already! Is that really supposed to be 6:50 though?
Yes... just as Trilobyte says - we aim to be a little bit in from 7 :o)
We'll see about those mint juleps or some other tasty porch tea!

Re: 6:00 Neighborhood Camps

The Back Burners, a relaxed group of veteran & virgin burners from Colorado, are hoping to return to the 6:50 & H area if we are lucky enough to find a spot! We are hoping to have a welcoming porch of judgement, a porch swing, and maybe a rocking chair... stop by and say hello if you're in the area....

Re: Tyvek for shade?

We used Tyvek in 2008 and would not use it again. We cut holes in the Tyvek sides so that wind could pass through, but the noise was still really loud. I would research a much more breathable, softer, shade material.

Re: Tiny Fairy lights

I got my lights in. How many did one coin power? The voltage was okay? Sorry - I just now came across this question. The coin type battery powered a single strand (maybe 6ft long?) that was wrapped around the perimeter of the bike wheel. It probably could've powered more than that, but that was all...

Re: Tiny Fairy lights

We used these on our bike wheels. We used an adhesive suitable for attaching to metal and they worked great. Ours had a coin style battery that we also fastened to the wheel and we didn't have to replace the battery all week. It's hard to find the strands long enough with the coin battery pack attac...
