Re: Representing India!

Hi JMS A word of caution, do not over commit your first burn, the playa is harsh and many virgin burners end up in the infirmary due to exhaustion. Here's what you are getting into; the days can be over 100 deg. The nights can be below 30 deg. The soil is alkaline dust the consistency of flour. I ha...

Re: Virgin Burner of a Different Sort

Hi Blaine First of all thank you for your service. I am going to premise this with I am no expert on Burning Man, and I have yet to meet one.

Re: How do wind-loaded yurts typically fail?

I have no technical data on hexayurts failures but I do have real world experience. A few years ago I decided to build a hexayurt. Long story short I arrive on the playa a week early and as I was setting up the wind picked up before I could stake it down. It actually imploded, more or less blew up l...

Re: Starting the search for home

If you are comfortable at the burn you are doing something wrong. That said if you use a tent you will need some kind of shade for it, a pop up shade structure works ok but by 10:00 am you will be sweating. You really need a monkey hut for a tent but I will still be warm during the day. Some of the ...
