Re: Anti-drug on the playa?

If you are completely anti-drug as you say you will probably have a very bad time. Nearly everyone there is on something, whether caffeine, sugar, alcohol or other drugs. Don't go.

No, that wasn't it. This was kinda homemade, plywood, flashing, dumping into about an 8' above ground pool. I saw that one early in the week, but I don't think it was running at the time. Given the opportunity and a bit of water, I would have tried it as well. I may have even broken an ankle. But a...

Re: Has DPW grown a biger ego than the event itself?

This is the first time I've encountered the DPW parade, and I thought it was fun to see the people involved. If the person with the megaphone wasn't shouting "we built this city", I would have had no idea who they were. So yeah, I cheered them on. Now if they were yelling "we built this city... with...

Re: Help! Any Brain Surgeons at BM? Thank you

I'm a practicing Proctologist (specializing in the pelvic floor), but I'm sure I can help you out. Lobotomies are taught in the sophomore year of medical school, so it's just a matter of consulting my old texts. You will need to bring some tools though. How thick is your skull? If very thick, a 5/8"...

Re: Shade Material. Anyone? Anyone?

That Swedish white snow camo netting works pretty good. I think it's made of tyvek, the same material that they wrap houses in and make non-rip mailing bags out of. Anyway, last year it could be found at that Army surplus place on 1st Ave South across the street from Home Depot. Plenty of places als...

Re: Plastic Clip-Its with Shade Cloth - Advice?

This is aluminet shade cloth? I've got exactly the same setup and the clips work great. You can cut the aluminet in any direction. Just fold the edge over once before putting on the clip. I spaced them about 12" apart. The loop on the clip is just over 3/8" inside diameter. I connect the clip direct...

Re: Silvicool

I still suspect they may be the same thing as the solid aluminet. If silvicool is as uv resistant as promised, and as reflective, it should be worth it. When I can, I plan on getting some. I have only found it in canada so far. Does the mylar crinkle badly? Do you remember the best price you found ...

Another option is to make coffee using a cold brewing system. You basically make an espresso strength coffee cold, which you can freeze into ice cubes or a Lexan bottle. 1 pound of coffee makes about one quart of extract that is mixed 1:4 with water. We did this last year and it worked great. The co...

Pacific Iron and Metal in Seattle at 2230 4th Ave S is the place to go. They have a huge yard with all sorts of metal. Pick out what you need and cut it to whatever size you want. They charge by the pound. I think I paid something like $20 for 3 pieces of 8 foot 2" aluminum.

Have you tried Tasty Bite? They have red and yellow curry meals that are pretty good. Easy to prepare, just heat by boiling the pouch in water.

I picked up some 70% aluminet and seems very durable and lightweight. I have yet to actually try it out, though. Thanks to a tip from somewhere on eplaya, I picked up some Swedish Snow Break-Up net. It's basically Tyvek with a bunch of random holes in it. Major Surplus and Supply has 16'x20' pieces ...

I see a bunch of different shade levels for aluminet. Did you get the highest (70%) or something else?
