I've been at the burn since 2011. There is no east bay regional contact or support that is not run by a camp/village " EBB and Glow". Way to commodified.

Re: Early Access tickets

If you get to the gate before the time printed on your early pass they will take your ticket from you and every one elses in your vehical . Even if their passes are for a time before you all arrived. O.o yeh I'm serious. Don't come up to the gate until the time of the early pass. Good Luck

Was wondering if anyone has tried putting steel electrical conduit tubes into the playa.
Would like to drive 10' steel tubes into the playa 18" or so. They are hollow of course and seems like it will work. Anyone have experience trying this?

Buy a 10' steel conduet pole and add it to the bundle and strap the bundle on both ends and in the middle. Duck tape is a nightmare in the heat, you can't get the glue off anything. Many different types of 1" nylon straps with buckles that will hold them tight. You always want your load secure as yo...

Re: Plywood Triangle Gussets for Wood Structure: How does DPW do it?

You need to secure all of your right angles with the gussets. if the posts are sunk or not. And in the horizontal roof plane so it doesn't twist. Maybe 3 bolts , off set in the 2"x 6"s. If you use gussets on both sides of the door than thats perfect, with a single top rail. Make the gussets big enou...

Re: Water-based-art on Playa?

The playa dust and water don't mix. The dust sits on the surface and clogs up water pumps real fast. You could have an over flow on to a box above the sump where the pump is. And have the water fall on to mess / wire pads of decreasing fineness to lets say 100 microns pad. That would be easy to make...
