Charged my marine battery today, woo! It was DEAD. New rebar tent stakes, shade structure, sunscreen. Extra bi-fil tape.

And... freakout commenced. I leave in 7 days. What the hell am I doing going on a 20-day camping trip in the desert?!?!

Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

Got our non-shitty RMAX panels for the yurt we're building this weekend. Getting an extra roll of tape on Saturday, pretty much stoked to yurt it up!

Also got a solar powered pump for the swamp cooler. It's happening!!!

Re: Solar Eclipse 2017

As of yet unsure if I'll be on the playa on eclipse day or not, but if not I am hatching a similar plan! Madras is actually the best place in the nation (lowest likelihood of cloud cover @ eclipse time) to see totality, but I'm anxious about traffic between Bend and Madras. Totally down for a meet u...

Re: What happens when your playabike craps out on the playa?

With normal, strenuous riding, the downward force of your legs takes much of the weight off your butt, and even a skinny saddle is comfortable. When cruising around BRC at 5 or 10 MPH, essentially all of your weigh is on your butt, and even a nerveless derriere will appreciate a wide, soft seat. GO...

Re: Further Future Playa Eclipse

Holy Shit!!! That is gonna be awesome!!!

What's fun is that this eclipse has a really similar path to the one that is coming on August 21 of this year, but the duration of totality in BRC is ~ 4 whopping minutes of solar awesome!

I'm gonna go change my pants now.

Re: Bay Area LadyGeek coming in for a landing at First Burn!

The great thing about you being a backpacker and a bit of a minimalist (or so it sounds) is that you will not be thrown off or deeply distressed by the arduousness of the trip. We are not all glampers, and you don't have to be either. You'll just have a very odd and longer-than-normal packing list....

Excellent!!! I already have the 6" tape, so that's an extra-double-plus added bonus!! Although I heard rumor that 6" tape was MOOPy... will put forth an effort to de-MOOP if so.

Re: Bay Area LadyGeek coming in for a landing at First Burn!

The event is the most particular instance of glamping. You "need" all this stuff. The trick is to use it more than once a year. It's a perilous path. You will have a closet full of clothes you can't wear for work or at any normal social event. That means every party you have must have a costume the...

Re: Bay Area LadyGeek coming in for a landing at First Burn!

Thanks Elliot, Savannah! I have some Australian grade sunscreen that has served me well in the past - but a base tan is not a bad idea at all . I was planning on having a good hat, maybe a cape + sunscreen. I will definitely be looking into some shade structures - but of course at this point getting...

Re: What happens when your playabike craps out on the playa?

My playa ride sports a flag with lights on the pole. It's a 70's Schwinn, no gears and has been to the playa for ten years (I do maintenance when I get home, vinegar bath and chain oil). Two genius ideas right there! I'm gonna go mix up a batch of vinegarwater... Some of the more scummy humans will...

Oh hey, that's good news! Two miles isn't so bad, after all, BRC seems like it's also walkable! I was planning to do a bit of both anyway; there are benefits & drawbacks to both biking and walking, and I'd like to try both! Wait a minute... your bike rusted through??? Dang, playa, you crazy!

Thanks Ratty! I searched manually in the bikes & transportation section by year, but google search would have done it. D'oh!!

I'm curious about seat -furring, though. How does this discourage people from stealing your bike seat?

Hi There! First timer this year - curious about bicycle maintenance on the playa!! I already have a bike set aside for my use - it's been out to the playa at least once before (although I have not) and is a definite beater bike. I'll have it in my possession by the end of next week, and I'm not real...

The OMG is very, very limited. Start making inquiries and contacts as much as possible. Even the Main Sale is a crapshoot these days. Not too early to start looking for 2018 if this year falls through. But hey, a hexayurt at a national park may be interesting... Yes, yes, yes, this is what I need t...

Bay Area LadyGeek coming in for a landing at First Burn!

I'm so excited to be gearing up for my first burn this 2017 year! I've gathered a group (five of us all together) and we're pooling resources to pull this thing off this year. We've got materials for hexayurt building (6" tape!!), buckets for swamp cooling, batteries for LED lighting (light yo'self!...
