Re: 3:00 Neighborhood Camps

On another note.. I'm pretty stoked at reading all the camps in our area.. sounds like a great year to be on the 3 side. Did I hear something about a Canadian craft beer sampling? Sha-wing! You heard correct! Swing by 2:45 and B and join us at the Canadian Cascadian Tiki Lounge for some frosty craf...

Daily protection for sound gear

This will be our first year as an actual placed theme camp and we're planning to have a little dance area and some music for the peeps. One thing that has been an on-going discussion in our planning meetings is how to best protect our rental gear (CDJ's, mixer, sub, speakers etc) from the elements a...

Re: 3:00 Neighborhood Camps

On the topic of placed camps etc - I have a question for Trilo or Simon. Do you guys know why they don't release placement boundaries for placed camps (or if they sometimes do)? We were told we got 100x100 but that it was 'weird shaped'. We're very pleased to have gotten placement and are totally pr...

We're traveling down from Vancouver as well.

We've never really had problems getting into line etc. I see you found a spot in Cedarville - ...

Re: Playa Conditions 2014

One of our camp leaders (Treehouse Camp) was working on the Treehouse art car when it was struck Monday am. He took a pretty big load of current but was fine in the end, if not a little shaken up.
He did come out of it with a new playa name though - Bolt.

Re: Seeking inexpensive projector & advice for art project

Projector fans suck in dust.

Not only do they suck in dust but the lamps get incredibly hot - add in that the filter...

I'll also add that it's wise to give your bags/luggage a little clean beforehand.

Re: Suitable Stakes

Considering the near hurricane force winds that can crop up out on the playa, I would say no they are not adequate. Now, on any sunny/breezy day on the playa I'm sure they'd do just fine if hammered down well enough but that's not a risk I'd be willing to take, or one your neighbors would enjoy, sho...

Re: Easy Tent Shade Structure

Tent inception seems to be your best option. Get a couple battery powered fans and you could rig up an airflow through the outer tent, which would help keep the inner tent cooler. It will still get warm, since well, you're in the desert, but it would be better than having direct sun bake you in your...
