This should be obvious, but it always is worth repeating as new burners join our community. Charlie Dolman is the Operations Director for Burning Man. He writes: Has this ever happened to you?

Re: Dry Ice in a FigJam?

Dry ice is about $4/kg. Each kg gives up about 500 kiloJoules when it evaporates (enthalpy of sublimation). Water is about 1kg per quart. A quart of water is ? say <$.25. That quart of water gives off over 2000 kiloJoules when it evaporates in a swamp cooler (enthalpy of vaporization). A Figjam cool...

There might be a note around on catching unplaced concierge camps through their use of outside services.

Re: Walls made of Shade Cloth?

Keep in mind that the side shade cloth panels are sails. When the wind is hitting them broadside it is going to exert a force compared to a tarp or a solid wall approximately multiplied by the shade percentage. Search my posts for "wind load" for the equation. That can lead to all kinds of frame fai...

Evaporation is better in the day, but good to start your evap day early and continue late - requiring changing the aim of the panels or using a battery. You will evap at night in the low humidity. With the wind a fountain is going to scatter grey water droplets downwind which is nasty. The evapotron...
