Re: old ripped bedsheets as shadecloth

Curious if you tried this in the end, as I was thinking of trying a similar thing at a regional burn with less windy weather.

Any burners in the San Fran area want an adventure?

I'm an Aussie, recently lost my burginity, and flying home on Sept 12 but hoping to do a little travelling and connect with other burners again before I go. Does anyone want to join me? I was thinking possibly of a road trip to Yosemite, or Death Valley, but even just chilling in San Fran would be g...

Re: Shiny foil inside your tent

If I'm understanding the original plan correctly, you intend to have the reflective layer lining the inside of a tent. If the tent in question had an outer fly layer, and an inner shell, and the reflective layer in between those, would that negate the "pizza bag" effect? I would think that the sun h...

Re: Suitable Stakes

I'm flying in to San Jose, planning stops in Mountain View, Sand Fran and Reno already, so could plan other stops along the way for supplies. I'm hoping there will be stores I can pre-order and pick up the rebar when I get there.

Re: Suitable Stakes

So I'm thinking now my best option is to try and sort out the rebar once I land in the US. How likely is Home Depot to be picked clean of rebar by other Burners when I get there? What kind of pipe do I need to bend it, or would it be easy enough to just cut it to length and borrow a pipe from someon...

Re: Suitable Stakes

So would the lag bolts be easy to find in a hardware store? And could they just be pounded in or do they work best being screwed in?

Suitable Stakes

Rebar seems to be the traditional go-to way of staking down a tent or shade structure on the playa, however I'll be flying in and the logistics of buying rebar, cutting it to size and bending the ends seems daunting. My local camping store has two kinds of tent stakes designed for sand or snow, and ...

Re: Travel Insurance - UK to US

I used to work in the travel insurance industry in Australia. Hopefully you already realise that there is NO WAY you should travel without insurance to the USA if you don't want to risk bankruptcy. I have found Columbus Direct (a UK company) and Cover-More (Australian company but pretty sure they st...

Re: How to attach two tarps: Glue? Sew? Tape?

Trying to get my head around your description of a "circus seam", CO, I can't quite picture it and I couldn't find anything on Google. Do you need a double row of grommets on Tarp B, so that each rope loop is "pinching" Tarp A between two layers of Tarp B? That's the only way I can imagine you would...
