You can grab pinches of 'chute material and tie them off with cord...Especially if the chute COMES with lines intact! You can also use zipstrips. No reason to punch holes in the material, except for wind vents. I'd suggest tying off at the top and around the sides as well as at the bottom, and perha...

I use sections of gray plastic electrical conduit as supports for shade on the stairway/slide of the Snowman- It bends easily and is useful for non-critical structures. Hard to break, but consequently it has a memory and likes to stay bent into particular curves. Features a handy built-in coupler!

BOY would I like to play with a big 'ol hunk of aluminum conduit! Should flatten nicely, especially if heat-softened....I wonder about its flexibility being a shortcoming for dome struts, though.

I'd prefer it if instead of the traditional ticket system, the BMorg would set up a plexiglas cube at the gate with a sign reading "$250.00 Suggested Donation" and give spiffy red blazers to the Rangers, now to be referred to as the Black Rock Docents. Seriously, Burning man is the finest, most dive...

Another vote for the 2.5 gal briefcases. And bring a funnel- after it's empty, you can wrench that soft plastic cap-and-valve off and use them for coffee grounds and semi-liquid organic trash or graywater storage. (That's one reason to NOT cut the little better-flow-nib-thing above the spigot. just ...

Okay, 1" EMT was A LITTLE harder to bang flat....but still do-able, says I. However, I manipulate lead-alloy blocks for a living, and am bending or smithying aluminum when I'm not doing that....It's hard work if you're not used to it.
