Re: Dumping clean water on the playa?

The van can tow 12,000lbs, so no worries there. Worst comes to worst, we'll rent a trailer that can handle the weight. Gerlach seems like the place to get water, wasn't counting on $0.50/gallon though. I think we might be back to the drawing board on this... seeing as we only need about $35 worth of...

Re: Dumping clean water on the playa?

trailer brakes: that is a good question... I'm borrowing a buddy's trailer, I'll have to check. In any case, we're not filling the tank until Reno, so only the last 3 hours of the trip will be fully loaded.

Re: Dumping clean water on the playa?

I thought about the weight, and i just compared it to my parents travel trailer: its about 8000lbs fully loaded and has 2 axles, so 4000lbs / axle is ok. The trailer is only going to hold the water and bikes i think, everything else should fit in the van. so even if we load it up to 4000 lbs, we sho...

Re: Dumping clean water on the playa?

that sounds like a plan! I'm thinking a PVC pipe on the back of the trailer with holes, then turn it on once we leave.

Dumping clean water on the playa?

Hello all, This year will be our first at BM. I know dumping gray/black water on the playa is a big no no. I'm working on a evapotron for that... But what about clean water? There are 4 of us going and had a rough figure of 70 gallons in mind when looking for a water storage. Craigslist produced a 3...

Places to shop in SF?

Howdy all, I'm spending a long weekend in the SF area next week for Maker Faire, and I'll have Monday to kill in the city. I've never been there before, and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for thrift shops and stores that cater to burners. It's pretty slim picking for both...

Unfortunately, that wasn't my flame thrower :( At my first burning event, I was talking to the man who did own the flamethrower and he offered to let me try it out, it was awesome!

Thanks for all the advice!

Re: Official starting and ending times?

Thanks all!

That answered my questions! The wheels have been spinning for a while now and this really helped! My old scouting "be prepared" mentality has kicked in, and I already have planning lists out the wazoo and various iterations of shade shelters designed!

Official starting and ending times?

Howdy all, I hope this is the correct place to ask, but after scouring the burning man website, I can't seem to find an official starting and ending time for the festival, or any kind of agenda other than the man burns on Saturday night. After my group and I got tickets this year, we need to get tim...
