What NOT to Bring to the Playa?

Besides the things that are explicitly not allowed at Burning Man (dogs, guns, cheap feather boas, etc)... What are things that are useless on the Playa? What should someone not bring? What have you brought in the past thinking you'd need it but in the end it was just a waste of space? Things I've h...

Re: Pop-Up Campers: Not an RV, not a tent (Advice?)

I would highly recommend not using the built in awning. I have seen several of these self destruct in wooded campgrounds - from much smaller gusts than we often see on the playa. A separate shade structure would be the way to go. Hmm.. My camp has a community shade area... guess I just will play it...

Re: Pop-Up Campers: Not an RV, not a tent (Advice?)

You may end up having to lug your firewood wheel chocks some distance to find a proper place to burn them unless you plan on bringing your own regulation burn barrel. I like how you were going for the efficiency thing, but I'd suggest you use something less MOOPy, and just take them back home with ...

Re: Voided Tickets?

What would be your ideal answer to these questions? I think the ideal answer would be "naw, they don't scan them, as long as you have a ticket with a stub on the end they can rip off, you're fine" That, however, is an unreasonable expectation. I'm just wondering if this is a likely possibility, how...

Voided Tickets?

So if you buy a third-party ticket at face value, have the physical ticket in hand and it appears legitimate, it's not on the list of voided tickets... is it possible to show up at the gate and be told your ticket had been voided? What happens then? Are there any options for people that this happens...

Re: Carrying Identification

I lose things, sit things down, and otherwise generally don't keep track of my things.

Would this suffice?

Another option is to have a belt to clip it onto. I don't know exactly what your scarf's set-up is, but if it's long enough, I've used belts in the past.

where it attaches to the trailer would be your failure point. Hmmm... any way to circumvent this?

Re: Remembering your shifts

I'm using my FitBit! You can set it to have vibrating reminders at specific times. I'm going to set it to go off with enough time for me to return to camp and get ready for my shift. That way, I'll get the reminder on my wrist without relying on clocks and cell phones.
