Re: Chemical composition of playa dust?

Excellent! :)

I find that really fascinating. We have nothing like that (a playa) in my area, and between the playa and the salt flats driving thru Utah, a lot of things came up in my head... And I guess it's taking me this long to finally quench that. :)

Thanks again, Eric

Re: Chemical composition of playa dust?

Apparently this thread is destined for a fresh bump every 5 years, so I'll try my hand at this.. Another member linked me here and I have an additional question after I've read the composition materials involved. Perhaps there is a lingering geologist about.. Idk... Did the prehistoric lake that was...

I used the eplaya search and got a lot of replies with "playa dust", but not the good stuff you've provided. ;)

What is the playa dust comprised of?

Mods, not a clue in hell where this goes, so I leave it to your discretion as to where it belongs. I was discussing this the other day, somewhat randomly, about BM and the odd things one just doesn't think about until you're out there. I found that the smell of the dust kicked me back 25 years to th...

Re: Do you need a ride from the midwest to the burn?

Right on.. I wish you luck. :) We had to stop and sleep a few times with 2 people driving. Although we managed CO to WI in the course of a full day on the way home. With a baby due any day now, I severely doubt my ability to come, but I think it'd be a great adventure carpooling with relative strang...

Re: Do you need a ride from the midwest to the burn?

How are you gonna handle sleeping?
Pull over and camp? Hotel? Plow thru the night?

I'm way too shakey on my 2015 attendance to volunteer at this point, but I am curious about your logistics.
Also, the 3rd party doesn't drive? How come?

Hi, Elliot. Long time listener, first time caller.... I camp at Spank the Monkey (5&C) and it seemed to me like they're in that rough area usually. If it really is right down the street again, or even if not, I think I'd like to give you a hand and give a little something back to the playa. I'm not ...

What are the odds that the passes will sell out?
Meaning, can I wait until I know my ride situation before I pay the $40? (which may be July/August)

Re: My own project.Tribute to deaf peoples.Burning Man 2014.

Hey there, I noticed in crypto's post he emphasized "CORE".
Last year was my first and Wednesday night when they did the core burn I just figured they called it that for some reason or another and didn't really give it much thought.
So, I ask, Crypto (or whomever) what does "CORE" mean?
Thanks

That (uploaded) picture lost some resolution, but anyhow, I had it put on an 11x14 canvas and framed for her 'playa gift'. It looks really nice and the story is great.
