Re: Does anyone know what ____ was called?

Who designed the incredible wooden structures in the walk-in camping area? There were a series of interlocking wooden huts that anyone could wander up to and sleep in. These then led to a massive, multiple story wooden structure that could be climbed and slept upon. It was probably two-thirds the h...

The plug and plays are businesses run on a business model. If they are successful, they make money and flourish. That is their goal. More will logically follow with each new success. Why would they not? What would stop that? There are such things as tipping points and exponential growth, remember, ...

Re: DJ Art Cars And Their Effect On Art

We were seated right in front of the Mayan Warrior for the Burn, where the Pachanga Boys were playing an awesome tribal drum track for the duration of the lead-up and actual Burn. It set a great mood, very spacey and ominous. However about 10 minutes before the Burn began, the art car next to Mayan ...

Re: Jungo Road - rain disaster

Haven't heard about Jungo Road conditions this year .

For BRC, it was just enough rain for long enough at the wrong spot, to wet the playa, drenchi...

Re: Jungo Road - rain disaster

Doesn't matter. It's a parking lot because the gate is closed until at least tomorrow morning. Yes, it's a parking lot. But if I get on 447 tomorrow it will be miles of parking lot.

Jungo Road - rain disaster

I have 2014 4x4 V8 Chevy Silverado, coming up from Los Angeles right now. From what I'm hearing from friends up there, the paved road is a parking lot for miles and miles.

Has anyone driven Jungo Road in the last two days? Total washed out disaster? Or is it still passable?

Hi Chris,

I attended my first Burn last year and I found iBurn to be ridiculously helpful. Thanks so much for your team's hard work on the app, it looks amazing this year.

Any chance you can PM me the password and I'll do some beta testing? ;)

Re: cooling your tent or van

You don't HAVE to splice the pump and fan together. That was just for convenience. Just put some clips on the wires from the pump and fan, then clip to the battery terminals. The fan will only work when connected correctly, but it won't hurt it if you get it backwards. The pump will work no matter ...

If you go the 395 route be very careful if you plan to take anything with you, including pot.

Holy cow, I just found out about Travertine Springs, which is just off 395 just north of Mono Lake.

This looks incredible! We're definitely stopping here. Reminds me of the Blue Lagoon outside Reykjavik in Iceland :shock:

One issue that concerns me is that 395 might be really crowded around the Labor Day weekend, since that's a main route into Yosemite. Is it better to take 395 past Yosemite on the way to BRC and then take the desert route on the way back to LA? With the desert route, one separates/catches back to 39...

Re: Combining two geodesic domes?

Two 2V domes will only share one strut, and this will be on the base ring. You could indeed share this strut, but everything else will need interposing struts to make a gateway between the two. Really the best idea would be to position the domes about 5 feet apart with the doors facing each other. ...
