Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

I would break a sweat pounding rebar into the playa... Not so much with lag screws. That, to me, is an example how worth it lag screws are. 13 lag screws held up my 10 x 20 structure flawlessly last year.

"Everyone is allowed in, but I am only inviting hot women."

Makes sense. :?

Reminds me of this video where only hot women, many topless, appear. Creepy/pervy factor level 10.

Re: cooling your tent or van

I solved the leaking problem in my bucket cooler by running a fishing line loop around the wet pad. Squeeze the pad with the line at the mid point of the holes. That should separate the pad from the bucket enough to stop the leaking.

Since you are flying solo, try to reduce your gray water to absurdly small amounts.

Re: cooling your tent or van

Let me correct my previous post. My configuration allows me to have the pad vertical. The original unicooler WOULD have tilted pads if nothing is done to correct that since they are attached against the walls of the trash can. Sorry about that.

Check your air flow with and without that extra filter. It will restrict the air flow. I don't use one, and I don't think you need it. Nice job!!! 8) The air filter does restrict the flow a bit.
