Storage Space - Salt Lake City?

Hey ePlaya! Are there any Utah / SLC area locals that know of any small storage spaces? I'm the leader of a small theme camp from Toronto, but we use Salt Lake City as our base before heading to the playa. We will have a bit more infrastructure this year that we would like to keep and use for years ...

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

Another question: what's the best ball bungee size to get? 6"? 9"?

And are 1" ratchet straps thick enough?

STEP Is Moving Along!

Happy to announce we have received a ticket from STEP last night! My friend received her email at 12:00, but we don't know the exact timestamp because she is traveling and can't see more details on her phone.

But it's started :D

Re: Cargo Van Rental Anxiety

Oh my goodness the rental anxiety is so real! I rented an RV from Salt Lake City for the burn twice in the past two years, and didn't disclose we were going to Burning Man (I think I said Arizona when they asked...) Anyway, spent both burns with a little ball of anxiety and guilt in the back of my m...

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

OK...so, after cutting, you have six 2' pieces. Get three of these couplings, and now you have a 12 by 20 shade structure: https://www.ptmtarps.com/12-x-20-super-heavy-duty-silver-tarp/ There are cheaper 12x20 tarps, but this is the one "that Oakland company" uses: Thank you so so much for all the ...

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

I was under the impression that Home Depot can cut my pipe for me? Is that wrong? We have a couple days in Salt Lake City before heading out so I was going to grab the pipe there and have them cut it down to 8'.

Also, noted. 6 ratchet straps for 6 legs.

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

Ahh got it! That makes a lot more sense. So don't slip the poles over the rebar, but rather duct tape them together beside each other. Ok, I think I have everything I need. All of my supplies are as follow: 13 x 1” emt conduit (10’) 7 x 10’ 6 x 8’ (cut down) https://www.homedepot.com/p/1-in-EMT-Cond...

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

Thank you so much, asr9754! That helps to clarify. I'll be ordering my fittings and mesh tarp from this site: http://www.ysbw.com/Canopy-Fittings-1-Inch-s/7.htm And picking up the conduit poles from Home Depot. Good to know not to hook the ratchet straps into the little holes! Can you clarify what y...

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

There is a company in the SF bay area that sells those shades. Their shades have bolts on the bottom of the legs that tighten onto the rebar. I would suggest that you also pound some candy cained rebar or use lag screws to attach straps. I've seen their website, however we are coming from the other...

Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

Hello ePlaya! I have spent hours scouring this forum and reddit for guidance on constructing our camp's first shade structure. We have decided upon a flat top structure, 10x20' (we aren't a huge camp). I have almost everything figured out structure wise, however I am confused on a couple of things a...

Re: step registation closes when?

Technically STEP registration doesn't close to buyers until July, however if you haven't registered within the first few minutes of it opening, you most likely will not get a ticket through it.

Greetings from Toronto!

Hello ePlaya! I am gearing up for my second burn, and after watching the discussions from afar I decided to finally create a profile and join in the conversation :) Last year was my first burn, and despite some minor hiccups I think we did pretty well for a group of 5 virgins! This year only two of ...
