Re: The person below me

Actually, yes. Thankfully it was plastic and disposable to begin with. Its certainly a smaller spoon now :lol:

Re: The person below me

Don't we all? Flying vs driving vs train vs bus to Reno. Driving in vs bus vs plane to the event, which ties into tent vs box truck, To bike or not to bike, which style, should I mess with sending it across the country or just buy/rent in Reno. What do I want to do with my career. If its fun to thin...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Somewhat like Popeyes suggestion. Put your 11 cooler campers in a circle with the entrance to their structures facing out. Generator goes in the middle of the circle. (Honda 1000 should do it) Plug in a "smart charger" connected to 2 100AH batteries hooked in parallel. Replace the plugs o...

Re: Virgin from Virginia First Burn

I rented a box truck and camped in the back rather than using a tent my first year. You'd be surprised how much of your camping kit can fit in luggage if you remove excess packaging and pack your clothes around them. I did all my grocery and last minute oh crap shopping in Reno before heading out. D...

Welcome to the forums, make yourself at home. Lurk and learn, and post some too. Looks like there's a decent burner community in your area, check in with some of the groups over on http://regionals.burningman.org/regionals/north-america/michigan/ . Good luck with tickets, hope to see you in the dust!

Greetings from a fellow Virginian, and welcome to eplaya! Remember to pace yourself and take breaks on that drive.

Dear Eric,
I have a mild case of second year megalomania but cannot attend this year. So far I've recruited two virgin friends to join me at TTITD. Is it too early (or late) for us to start planning our theme camp, two mutant vehicles, awesome pimped out bikes, and two interactive art pieces?

:idea: I think I finally get the silly "RV's aren't radically self reliant" argument. The gist of the issue isn't really self-reliance at all, its that some folks think RV's aren't radical enough.

I saw a lot of spray on sunscreen out there, and wanted to give a heads-up to anyone who might not know this yet. Even when spray on sunscreen has dried, avoid open flame and other sources of ignition, it can ignite and ruin your day/burn. http://www.wavy.com/dpp/news/local_news/chesapeake/spray-on-...
