Re: My fear of past discretions affecting 2019 experience

Our camp hosted an Aussie virgin a few years ago. That guy out burned our entire camp! He did his homework, came prepared, and throughly embarassed me by being such a badass! If somebody is throwing you shade tell them to eat shit! Then go find something else to do! You haven't even arrived and you'...

The only tracked vehicle I can recall seeing in the past several years is this. Much different treads than yours and substantially mutated.

Re: How is the road from Winnemucca to Gerlach (NV 49 I think)

I've taken Jungo Road twice by leaving from Lovelock and heading north until it intersected Jungo Road. I thought I'd cut off a big back up in traffic once I hit 447. Both times I popped out right at the end of the line so there was really no benefit other than skipping the idiots on 447 that JUST H...

Re: 1 hour queue before main sale

There doesn't seem to be much information on the waiting room situation this year? Anyone know how that's working? Waiting room opens at Noon but tickets don't actually go on sale until what time? Or is there no waiting room this year?

The purple shading is like a slow moving blob. Eventually if you're not in a placed camp you'll be on the outer ring. Last year G street was either flagged or filled 5 days before the gates opened. I'm just hoping they haven't flagged H street this year. It looks a little shaded. Yeah, what is the ...

Re: 2015 turn key camps and self reliance

I think the problem lies with the media. Burning Man is no longer a secret and there's no turning back. It is mainstream. Katy Perry Instagramming her Segway fail is only going to add 30,000 teenie boppers into the general sale. These people don't give a shit about knowing the ten principles, let al...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Those are all good ideas to check. I'm sure the humidity was an issue too. You're looking for a drop of about 30 degrees in "low" humidity.

More Flame Effects Tips?

Hi! I'm looking to create a 5-7ft flame. I have a few questions:
1. Is there an ideal pressure? Will a normal 5lb BBQ regulator be fine or should I get an adjustable one for more pressure?
2. The regulator is placed after the accumulator, correct?
3. What would make a good nozzle/tip?

Thanks!

Hi GypsyMike. I'll jump in here. I have built my first monkey hut and plan to attend Burning Man in August.
