Re: Hi! I'm doing a report on burning man and would like to ask several questions

Ha ha!
Not to brag, but in my own youth, I routinely turned in essays of half the prescribed length and scored A+ every time.
How?
Because I wrote something a little bit original and thoughtful.

Re: Best layout for a camp of 2 people

I see you are considering an air matress. My experience with those is that they deflate during the night. And that is without a leak. The Playa becomes colder during teh night, and the air in the mattress shrinks. Try putting a baloon in the fridge and see what hapens.

Re: Site allocation when turning up solo?

Welcome to ePlaya, MrsB!
Theme Camp territory is traditionally marked with blue flags. These are tiny little flags down on the ground, about 4 inches square.
It's not like there is a "fence" of them, but if you look up and down the street a little, you can see them.

Re: Garage Sale after Burning Man

My first thought was "thrift store", but of course the Dust makes that unrealistic. It is not uncommon to gift such items to other Burners when you leave BRC. My camp once received 14 bicycles, 14 chairs, and so forth from a foreign group, and we are making use of it all. That said, many Burners wil...

Welcome to ePlaya! It will also be possible to change the shipping address of the tickets up to May 25. Many Burners sleep in tents, but I recommend that you install shade over the tent, lest the tent become a "solar oven". A popular form of shade is a "monkey hut", which you can read about in numer...

Totally agree. I've been to The South, and the humity is awful. But at Burnign Man, the air is bone dry and I love it even when the temp goes over 100. You may never see a drop of sweat, coz it evaporates instantly. I go nude a lot, coz nothing gets sticky. And people build big shade to protect from...

Activities not to mess...? Do you mean miss? You will miss 90% of the activities you leave camp for. This is becase you will stumble upon soooo many other activities on teh way. So it is all good.
