Re: HAIR concerns on the playa? ;)

Hi SugarK. I have thin hair that is like cotton candy, tangles when dry and that stretches and snaps when trying to get through it when it’s wet. I don’t recommend trying to brush it on playa at all. The sound is awful. Do 2 braids and leave it that way all week. Cover with scarves to keep the dust ...

Re: Clothing lights and washing

I did the same thing with vests and a tutu or two a few years ago. After the time it took to do one with sewing I went to the safety pins. Best idea ever. Last year I didn't even bother trying to wash them. I pulled them out night two on playa, I didn't even notice the dust on them.

Re: So, how dusty was it?

Most dust for me. First time my lungs were really hurting but only lasted for a few days. Couldn't help but picture those shrimp eggs hatching in my lungs. Least amount of art I've ever seen. I see pictures and think "Where the hell was that?" I biked right past it and didn't see it through the dust...

Re: LA - Reno transport? + cheap stay Reno 26-30 Aug + Playa

Just checked out Amtrak. Wow, our train system is shitty. Now I get why the want to build that track from LA to San Fran. No strait shot and half of the trip is on a bus. Looks like Grey Hound is your best shot if you don't find a ride with someone else.

Is this a guys only thread? I'm going to break the manly streak. I'm on the left and the wonderful lady on the right was the one who brought me to the playa my first year. It's her fault for my unending obsession with Burning Man.

Re: Playawear Work In Progress 2015

I made the Tutu, which really is more of a petticoat, lighted with those tiny seed LEDs on the wire. I'm so in love with these lights. I hate the bulkiness of wires. I only wish they could individually blink/twinkle or chain flash. These are only steady on or flash. If anybody knows of wire lights t...

I took dry ice for myself last year and loved it. I had two, about 1/2 pound each, maybe a pound. Just wrapped in the plastic bags they came in. Tucked them in the bottom corners on each side of a medium sized cooler. Then a layer of regular ice, then food and drinks. I only bought ice once that wee...

Re: Need an awesome campmate? Here's my theme camp personals

Camp dues pay to get the infrastructure you want there. The large shade, kitchen and chill space doesn't manifest itself on the playa. Think of dues as your gift. When I see the time, energy and money our camp leader puts into our camp, I give more than the asked for dues. Nobody makes a profit runn...

I use glasses and a scarf. If it's real bad scarf goes over my whole face. You can still see through it. My virgin year I had goggles. Boy do they suck, so hot and sweaty.

I have to say boots, comfortable boots. While prepping for my first trip all I saw was people wearing boots, short and tall. I thought it was a fashion trend.

We were in the crowd waiting for the Man to burn 2012. Two people behind us were making out. They stop and he asks " Wait, you're not a republican are you?"

Re: Cot, Sleeping bag or air mattress?

Air mattress with a sleeping bag. I got one that blows up with battery power. An extra fleece blanket or sweatshirt with a hood for particularly cold nights. After you get up cover your whole bed with a sheet to keep the dust off. I also keep a clean pillow case in a ziplock, sometimes I'm not happy...
