Block Dimensions?

I have been asked to sketch out a map for this years camp, however Im not really finding any details on block sizes. We usually camp @10. We would like to take up 1/2 of a block with fire lane in the middle between the two camps sharing the block which I know needs to be 12 feet wide. What is the le...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Im wanting to build one of these this year but the solar power pump from http://www.harborfreight.com/solar-powered-fountain-pump-66093.html only seems to put out 1.2 watt, which might work for just the pump, but most pc fans take up to 3 watts.. Any thoughts? I plan on making one for my tent this y...

Re: Contained, propane firepit?

Gateway, the big worry is burn scars. Elevate away from the surface of the playa so the heat doesn't bake dust into a hard, difficult-to-remove chunk. You're not proposing anything so large as an open bonfire, but here is the background reading so you're informed: http://burningman.org/event/prepar...

Re: Contained, propane firepit?

Kicking this thread a bit, but was wondering of rules, regulations have changed. I read though most of the open fire links on the main burning man site. I had an idea of a propane fire pit, it will have nothing in it like wood, rocks etc.... It would be something like this https://cdn.shopify.com/s/...

I'll use 18" rebar candy canes to stake it to the playa but it comes with really good steel stakes for regular use. As I haven't used it on the playa yet, feel free to take this with a grain of salt, but from reading on here, most people say the stakes it come with are sufficient for the playa. The...

Re: Anyone have feedback on a Kodiak 10x10 ft tent?

I was going to take my regular camping tent but I'd read a lot about how the mesh panels let all the playa dust in when the wind blows. I tried to make covers but the glue would not stick and I couldn't get a good seal. I just don't have Ratty's amazing sewing skills! So I was browsing Craig's List...

Re: !README! 2016 Drone Policy

Rules for the FAA 107 have been posted and should be intact some time in Aug. This is a the next big step and a much more relaxed policy for becoming a commercial drone pilot. The biggest one is no more need for an actual pilots license, they will do tests and the TSA will need to do a background ch...

I'm also looking this year, since no RV for this upcoming burn. Main thing a stated in the first post is no mesh , silly to have it and it just invites dust...

Re: Was there a waiting room problem?

if your it was actually lets say 12:05 and your clock was set to 11:30 am, and you clicked it still tags you at 12:05 in the UTC time.. so moving anything back and forth has no change on your *chance* to get tickets but this is sorta nonsense talk since this is more about the waiting room issue tha...

Re: Was there a waiting room problem?

its how servers work for this type of cart style system, so moving your clock forward or back doesn't effect anything. Moving your clock forward or back affects what you see when you look at your clock while you click a button. "I clicked at 12:06" has nothing to do with server time. if your it was...

Unless people manually change their OS settings, their computers are automatically synchronizing their clocks.

Re: Was there a waiting room problem?

When you do a request to the server it doesn't care about your clock on your computer, it has its own server timestamp which is in UTC. I figured.

I'd wager those people simply have clocks that are a minute fast, they actually got in the waiting room just before the cutoff, and they were lucky enough to be in the first batch to leave the queue.
