Re: Best way for an outsider to get involved

I honestly don't have many skills to speak of but I built a hexayurt, a 16x8x8 wooden shade structure, a swamp cooler, solar powered lighting and a solar shower all in my first burn, basically on my own. There's a lot of info on these boards and on YouTube that makes it doable :) The thing I wanted ...

Re: Best way for an outsider to get involved

Thanks!

I sent an email to the SD regional contacts and he recommended some art collectives to join and help out, so that seems really interesting. I'll stay away from Craigslist and hopefully will try to attend Youtopia but I will have to convince my wife on that one :)

Best way for an outsider to get involved

Hello, I went to my first burn in 2014 and had a wonderful time. I have tried unsuccessfully to obtain main sale tickets in 2015 and 2016. I have been reading about how it's recommended to get involved with the community if you are looking to obtain tickets, but my question is what is the best way t...

Re: Shade Structure Feedback needed.

Here's the final structure. It ended up being super sturdy and had a wonderful ambience. I have plans to expand it for next year and introduce a Mad Hatter high tea theme next year. Thanks for the feedback!

Re: Rebar/stake questions

Ok great I think they have that length. What about the design? Is it possible that the flat part will twist towards the tent (I plan on pounding it all they way flush with the ground, pinning the rope underneath).

Re: Rebar/stake questions

Would these work when securing down a hexayurt? They're 10 inch long 1/2 inch galvanized anchors. I liked them because they're already pre-bent which would make them easy to pound into the ground.

Re: Shade Structure Feedback needed.

Thanks! Yeah I'm pretty happy with it so far. I did buy guy lines for it. I'm just not sure how sturdy it actually has to be since I've never been to burning man and haven't really experienced a 75 MPH wind.

Re: Shade Structure Feedback needed.

Here is a link to what the structures will look like with the lattice work. I still have to include some sort of cross bracing as recommended. There are two identical structures which are partially modular in that they can rotate to form a single opening or two openings like a Z. I also need to deci...

Re: Shade Structure Feedback needed.

Yeah it's a lattice fence that will surround the top and 3 of the 4 sides. Once I screw it into the frame it should be pretty sturdy. I chose it because it should provide some shade while still letting wind through so my structure doesn't become a kite. It's true the chiffon is just for atmosphere. ...

Shade Structure Feedback needed.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/anrifll7ouu840p/Structure.jpg Does this look like a good setup for a shade structure? The structure consists of 2x4s and 4x4 posts attached by galvanized fittings and outdoor wood screws. I plan to attach lattice to the top and two of the sides for shade, but also to let w...

Re: Power needs and using solar

Yeah it was more like a typical wall outlet. I was just going to bring a surge protector and hook a bunch of stuff up to that in my hexayurt. I'll read about inverters now. Thanks!

Re: Power needs and using solar

OK I'll look into the battery from Walmart and Costco instead of the one I posted. What about the rest? Does the setup go: Solar Panel > Charge Controller > Deep Cycle Battery > 6 Outlet Power Plug > Charged iPhones and illuminated LEDs? I feel like there's something missing in between the Deep Cycl...

Re: Power needs and using solar

Hello! I'm also very new to this. If I wanted to power my camp in much the same way that OP does (swamp bubbler, LED lights, lantern, small speaker, iPhones, etc), would this be an acceptable set up?
