I wouldn't have as much of a complaint if the barely decorated party barges were being held to the same standards.

What type of company do you work for? I could find a similar place here in Eugene and see if they'd sell me a few gallons at slightly over cost and save myself a bunch of money.

I second that. I've used Gorilla tape numerous times on the playa and it's worked out perfectly. In fact, it's still stuck on some things that have endured 2 winters outside. There's no way in hell that duct tape can do that.
I just wish they made white gorilla tape.

Well, I'm not stuck on the idea of using plywood.
I think so far....the biggest downside to using plywood is the weight.
I am thinking that it would weigh at least 300lbs. That's alot.
So....the verdict isn't out yet on plywood.

I'm also planning on painting the plywood white. I honestly don't think it would get any hotter than the white dome I have. It has a used white billboard tarp as a cover and since the tarp isn't totally opaque it is like a hot box in there during the day. Not so bad once I added ventilation flaps. B...

I like the nylon strap idea alot! I think I might just try that.

My reasons for plywood are that it's more rigid, I can use it over and over, it will certainly hold an A/C, and be easier to stake into the ground.
Plus, I can make a locking door for when we're out and about.
