art cars

Hi there. I'm with the Astropups. The camp has been talking about building an art car for several years, and are determined to build something fun for '06.

Have you been through this process? Can you gift us any wisdom?

Thanks !!

This is my best burn also. For me it's never just one big happy ride though, I definately had my introspective, sadder moments. But EVERYONE I met was great, and a few were truley amazing.

adjusting to reality

I'm I just a cheesy mushy geek, or is anone else really emotional right now. I miss all the friends I've just made like mad, and don't think I can get through another year without them.

I'm suprised no one is using ski goggles. I've been using my snowboarding goggles for 3 burns and they're really comfy, never fog and look really stylish (although not as shabby as I would like). Personally I think any old thing would do, as long as they work. In the years I've been the dust storms ...

Audio Equipment at Burning Man

Does anyone have any experience, purchasing and maintaining audio equipment on the playa. I have a pair on non-powered JBL eon-10 speakers, and looking to purchase the rest of the stuff. Obviously looking to keep things simple, and figure out how to keep the equipment free of dust. Also, anyone have...

carport

Hi Sonic, I've decided to put up a carport as well. From comments I've read, they only take a couple of hours to erect, and very secure if you rebar the inside of the poles. If you use guy lines as well you're talking huricane resistent. Of course you might want to take up the walls in a storm, to p...

costco car port

This sounds like an great idea. Also, it's been tried and tested by several groups here. I have been trying to find it on-line with no luck (I must be a dumb ass). The closest I got was a really fragile looking 10x10 patio canopy on the costco site. I'm really interested in the 10x20, with 'curtain'...

good 'ol fashioned html

Thanks especially to swampdog for such well documented plans. I had a hunch I was being overzealous, although I did want to do something a little special/lavish. But after reading postings from good e-playa people, like yourselves, I think I would be pretty angry at myself if after 2 days of hard la...
