Welcome! I hope we don't end up road-tripping to Oklahoma. :lol:

Re: Should I get a canopy?

I use 10x10 straight-leg canopies, always have. I anchor with rebar at each corner, next to the legs. Another rebar about 2ft out from each corner, guyed to the top. Pool noodle sections on the rebar ends. I zip-tie shadecloth to two sides, flat, attach tarps over that with bungee cords, angle the t...

Re: how cold is it at night?

One fine morning in 2010, I discovered thin sheets of ice in my evap. :shock: Some nights it's warm enough for flimsy clothing, some nights I've been in heavy layers, plus hat and gloves. Chemical handwarmers are VERY nice. I have some hip-length fake fur coats, and a full-length wool coat. Purchase...

Seeking opinions/advice on new tent.

I'd like to find a cheap tent smaller than 10x10, larger than 8x8, with a peak height of at least 60 inches, minimal mesh. Most tents I've seen (Coleman Sundome, for example) have huge mesh panels- I'd rather not deal with covering them. I'm looking at this one- I'd prefer a full rainfly, but all wi...

Re: Smackdown! GPE v. Greeters

and don't forget the qualification process for GPE:

Omnipotent intellect.
A rapier wit.
Cat like grace and speed.
Charm
And disarmingly attractive, to both sexes.


Crap. Wish I had read that before I volunteered for GPE. I have 200+ days to learn that skill set. Wish me luck.

Re: What do I do with my bacon grease?

I fry eggs or potatoes (or both) in the grease. Going to try the biscuits this year :-) Then I wipe the pan with a paper towel or two and put those into a big paper bag with all the rest of my paper waste to burn. I have some nifty little disposable dishwashing towels (already soaped). Scrub the pan...

Re: Any way to get a Ride to Black Rock from Reno?

Another idea in addition to the rideshare desk: You can get a taxi to places where Burners stock up on supplies (like the Save Mart on Keystone). You can buy water there as well, in the 2.5 gal x2 boxes. Better than 1 gal. jugs :-) Handy list : http://www.burningman.com/preparation/travel_info/reno/...

Re: $99 Plastic Car Ports?

Which $99 carport are you thinking of?

(I've been using a 10x10 First-Up and a 10x10 Ez-Up* for years. I stake and guy them really well, though.)
*The EZ-Up died after 12 years of Playa use. My error- I broke it by slamming it upside-down on the Playa while breaking it down :-)

Re: Dust-proofing tents

Cheap tents are great! Many "good" tents have a lot of mesh. My cheapie has only 4 small mesh panels at the top (rainfly covers that), and a door with a zippered mesh 1/2 panel.

this one time,

at Burning Man 2007
a hippie invaded our camp and washed his ass in our cooler.
He called us 'fucking pigs' when we asked him (politely) to leave.

Use dry ice, wrap your cooler in a sleeping bag, keep the cooler off the ground... There's a rather good sticky thread covering all of this.

If you have time, check out Mono Lake near Lee Vining, if you've never been there.
There's also a good restaurant in the Mobil station in Lee Vining.
And no, I'm not pulling your leg!

The camp next to ours (in 2000?) made safe sex kits + put 'em in Altoids tins. Each contained a condom, lube, wet wipe, and glove.
Nice!

I don't know if it's on the Survival Guide, but I take chemical hand-warmers. Nice for chilly nights, and they're a good gifting item.

I have the 135, and I got it at Target. Walmart has them, also.
You can dump the holding tank every few days in the JOTS, but only if you use 1-ply paper, or put used paper/wet wipes/sanitary items in a covered bucket for later disposal.

Personal Potty

I invested in a portable toilet before my first burn. This is my sixth year, and I wouldn't think of leaving it at home. The one I bought was around $60, can't recall the manufacturer, but it isn't a Coleman. I chose it over the Coleman version because it had a rigid, foldaway drain tube on the hold...
