Re: How to get Bike to BxB Reno?

Forgive the necro-post, but my camp mate has a similar problem. She's flying in from Sweden, and rented a bike from Kiwanis. While it is only a 2 mile bike ride to the airport, she'll have other luggage. As they are no longer downtown, the city bus won't work. Does anyone have any ideas on a deliver...

It looks like a 6mm barrel connector.

I already have the fan and pump. Just need to tie it all together.

Re: cooling your tent or van

I hope I'm not making this too convoluted... I have a Jackery 160, and would like to use it to power the cooler. I have purchased the FIGJAM specified components. My problem is finding a 12v barrel connector to plug into the Jackery's 12v DC Port (not a cigarette lighter adapter). Here is the info o...

Re: cooling your tent or van

If you go giant power bank, it might have a 12v outlet that opens up options for you. But you are going to have issues drop shipping unless it's going to a friend's house. And shipping it out won't be cheap either. Here's the bank I'm looking at, but I don't think it's powerful enough, even with so...

Re: cooling your tent or van

I have not purchased my fan yet, as I haven't found one that is powerful enough.

I thought about purchasing a Jackery and having it drop-shipped to Reno, but then I could not test it. It's 167wh so to big to go on a plane.

Cool beans. I think giving directly to the camps is the way to go. I just was worried about weight.

Re: cooling your tent or van

I am flying/BxB to the burn. As I am packing as light as possible, I'd like to use usb bricks to power this. While the pump is no problem (I have a solar with battery backup), I can not find a fan that will run 5v with more than 55 cfm or so. I'm sticking with the 5 gallon design, as outlined on pag...

Howdy all, Looking to gift a special mustard that we make from a family recipe. It would be unbranded packaging (commercial kitchen prepared), but I don't want to hand out a bunch of moopy individual serving packets (it's normally given in glass jars). Any ideas on how to gift this type of yummy to ...

Re: Improvements & Upgrades to the FIGJAM bucket evap. cooler

Non-Engineer here: Does using a 7 or 10 gallon bucket (similar circumference as 5 gal) and scaling the height of the filters up (same thickness) and using a pump with a higher head height work, or are there other physics to consider. Asking for a friend.

All tickets are already in other people’s carts. Hold tight, there is still a chance tickets may become available. If ticket buyers ahead of you do not complete their purchase, those tickets will be released for sale.

Broken down old lady burner

Howdy!

Looking to go to the Playa in a few years. Life has been getting in the way this year, and next year I'll be out of the US, so it looks like 2018. My friend and I will be attending our first burn, and we are both glad we've finally made a commitment!
