Re: Lost gold earring at Mayan Warrior-Robot Heart Link-Up

Like all the other garbage dropped by wasted EDM zombies at Robot Heart/ Mayan Warrior, your earring got MOOPed by the volunteer clean-up crew after you shambled home at sunset to sleep it off until the following night's Default Celebrity DJ Set. But thanks for contributing.

Re: Camping solo tips?

Grey water is simple: don’t create it. Bring only shelf stable food (cans of soup, Jerkey, crackers, cans of fruit, tuna, etc.). No fresh food means no dirty cooler water and no cooking water waste, and a five gallon bucket with a lid for your grey water (toothpaste spit, hot beer, soup dregs, etc.)...

Re: Critique Virgin Tent/Shade Buildout?

Also critical is a little ground cover just under and extending out from your tent. A cozy rug is nice for napping in the shade, but a tarp will do. This is where you take off your boots, drop your coat, untangle your necklaces, pour yourself a cocktail. These kinds of activities are messy in your t...

Re: Critique Virgin Tent/Shade Buildout?

My two cents - if you’re good friends maybe have one tent for sleeping only, keeping it zipped closed and clean most of the time, and one tent for supplies. The supply tent would be where you come in wasted at 1 am looking for That OneThing, pouring through boxes or finding a handle of alcohol or ch...

You don’t need a camp. You ARE a camp. Bring something to share (shots! Pickles! Sharpie tattoos!). Set up a table outside your camp and put up a camp sign. Voila! You are a theme camp.

We saw it on Saturday or Sunday night during pre-event build, and our two bravest, fittest, dumbest straight boys climbed it. They came down pretty quickly with reports of doors opening and tires spinning. But damn, that piece was epic. The closest to old BM I’ve seen in few years.

I’ve never heard of a seven person RV, but if it’s just you and three other people, a total of four strangers might not fill the grey water tank until Tuesday, assuming none of you are women who “need” to wash their hair or hands. So that’s a good start.

Lots of decent food is available shelf-stable. Canned soups and chilis, canned fruit, beef jerky, crackers and peanut butter, canned or pouch tuna, nuts, granola, dried fruits. You dont need to spend a lot to get shelf stable food.

Good for you, flint. Some people are going to question your wisdom in taking this all on, but burning man only exists because people make it happen. People like you! At least you’re not another EDM DJ-chaser begging for an RV share. Good luck. Read a lot. Plan more. Something will fail. Roll with it.

If you are able to convince her to stay home, then come by yourself in your truck with a tent and have the ti...
