Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

Yeah, I heard that. I have a cordless circular saw that is practically worthless. My impact driver is cheap, but with a couple extra batteries, who knows? I think it's time to make the leap and I'll bring extra rebar just as a back up.

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

On the topic of driving the lag screws into the playa, has anyone had success using a high torque cordless drill? High torque hammer drill? I'm trying to do without using a generator and wondering if anyone has tried or had success doing it this way.

Re: Cot vs. Blow-Up Mattress

Cot for a single. Air mattress for > 1. Agree with the above. I've had and used both. The cot is great for storage if you're alone. If you bring or expect company, the air mattress is the way to go. You could always rig some basic structure to hold the air mattress if you wanted...in fact, I may try...

Go to Harbor Freight tools. Buy a small utility trailer. Put it together. Build some basic sides for it. Attach it to your car (assuming you're not renting a car). Keep it or sell it when you get home. It's what I did after renting a van for a couple of years. Is it more expensive in the beginning? ...

I generally recommend not bringing anything that can't be replaced. Don't bring your antique family heirloom ring or...

Re: Two virgins from Norway 2018. Help? Is our tent good enough?

All of the above is great advice. You’ll also want to bring rebar, or at the very least some very heavy duty tent stakes. The typical tent stakes provided with tents can easily pull out in strong winds sending your well prepared tent flying across the playa.
