Re: 2018 One item a day for BM list

I have fairy lights sewn to my dirty ass playa back-pack, which had to be thrown in the washer. I took out the batteries, then washed it and let it dry. I was THRILLED when I put batteries back in and they lit up!

I ordered more fairy lights just in case.

Re: Why isn't 12 o'clock North?

It's to maximize the effect of the dust created from gate road so it goes right down the middle of the city, through center camp and onto the playa.

Re: Smaller Misting System: Pump or Bucket Top?

I didn't even think about using the swamp cooler outside of my tent. Maybe I'll make another one that vents out about chair level. I'd be nice to just sit in front of that thing for a few. Everyone can use their own water.

Smaller Misting System: Pump or Bucket Top?

Hi all,

I am looking to run a smaller misting system. The 500+ psi pumps are a bit out of my price range so I am wondering if a smaller 100 psi one will work (with 4 nozzles) or get one of those bucket top fans from HD. Any thoughts?

Re: Lag VS rebar on bus

Yes, it will work. I fly with lags (checked) and and battery powered impact wrench (checked) with two charged battery packs (carry-on). It's worth making room in your gear for this, IMO.

I'm hoping someone got the first pass (I think) when the pilot pulled straight up into a vertical climb. That's interesting you mention the BRC pilots were not happy. I wondered how they would react. I thought one of the passes came from the direction of Gerlach, which would put it facing the take o...

Re: cooling your tent or van

My FIGJAM bucket was a fucking lifesaver. I need to re-do it to reduce gaps between the blue material and the bucket, which made it a little hard for it to cool off the whole tent (I suspect). We were able to nap and do adult things during the middle of the day as long as we were directly in front o...
