BTW - you'll need at least 80-90 lbs of water for 6 days, I could do that but couldn't find anywhere to put the beer after I had it loaded ;-)

Whichever camp I'm in, anybody that rides their bike to Burning Man and survives off of what you can bring on it, can camp with us. I'd like to do the same but love to bring a whole lotta shit even more. Whatchya ridin'? Me a VTX 1300S

But if you do get your heart set on one or two big containers, I've found this link for re conditioned FDA approved barrels. They had juice or soda in them at one point. I'm thinking a 15 gal barrell set up for a shower. That's like 145 lbs though so it'll be fun watching me get it in place.

It's kinda spendy in name brands and I don't know if it's toxic but we use it in the sign business a lot and it's a terrific sculpting product that lasts 20 years outdoors. Name brands are Sign Foam and Precsion Board but it's just High Density Urethane. Sculpting it on site would produce a lot of m...

Badger,
where do you pick up rocket fuel these days anyway? Can you use it without mixing it with anything else? How much nitric acid? Is this a joke?Momma always said not to play with rocket fuel, so it sounds like fun to me.

I know it doesn't shoot projectiles but what about percussion? You see what I'm thinking is we can make this into art by maybe putting a 10 pin configuration of dumb ass GW dolls and blow 'em down! Or to more fit this years theme take a bigger single G Dub head and blow the surprisingly empty Psyche...

CChris, I've been spinning mostly poi with a little staff thrown in. I'm just learning right now and have only fire danced a few times in pubic, well outside of the family anyway, but my wife and I have been performing as percussionists and I'm the general electronic musician with Dragon Tribe and t...

Our group has always used white gas. Our perfomance is tailored around it though, as you well know white gas burns out much quicker so we have real high intensity shows with back to back to back performances. We do a lot of shows indoors here in *reality* so it has driven us to the cleaner burning f...

In all my research trying to find a QUIET generator to power an air conditioner for an escape for my wife, who will be 7 months preggers when the man burns, I've found Yamaha has the quietest stand alone units, but Honda has the best designed and long lasting generator. Now if you get into the RV un...

That Gorilla Glue is something else, it'll glue damn near anything. There is also an adhesive called UV6800, it's stabilized against UV rays so it stands up against the sun. We use it to glue dimensional letters to the sides of buildings for signs. I've never used it with fabric though.

The pistons are the biggest challenge, robotland. I'm trying to figure on how to keep the gaskets on the plastic pistons. I have a CNC router at work but it can only rout the actual discs. Flat milling only. I'd want to put gooves in the edges of the plastic to retain the gasket but would have to do...

I was thinking of trying nozzles from the grocery store produce sprinkler systems. I think that's what my uncle used for his orchids and it put out a nice mist. I'd really like to pedal power a fan and mister pump. I haven't figured out the pump though. I'm toying with modifying a Super Soaker pump ...

I'm sure we could build one if we arrive and there is not! I've found new brass poles rather difficult to get ahold of without a lot of $$ but I'll keep my eyes on the scrap yard if you bring the lumber :-)

Thanks for the links and your concern, Cryptofishist. We had seen the first page/link but although we saw some references from that 2nd link/ thread we hadn't found the actual thread. I also had some PM's with Alpha who had his wife at BM when she was 7 months. Tiphany and I don't expect she'll have...
