Re: Fuel Supply when coming from afar.

You need to preregister to get fuel at Hell Station. It's meant to supply larger mutant vehicles. My modest size art car (with a 6 gallon tank) is not something that could use them for fueling up. Certainly gas cans for generators are a definite NO! As far as what to do with empty gas cans, offer th...

Re: Hot tub on the playa

A stripper pole is a great idea. You might consider a large, wood platform and set it up in your camping area. You could set up events in your camp. I have seen some amazing pole dancers at Burning Man. The stripping part of pole dancing is something more for a cheap adult club in the gritty side of...

Welcome to eplaya. Please read the First Timers Guide in my signature below. The simple answer is "this is not a hot tub event". Because of health and sanitation reasons, you can't make this a public tub. If you want to personally wallow in slimy mud, that's up to you, but make sure you haul every l...

Re: I want something different

Burning Man has been known to be the perfect canvass for experimenting and stepping out of your comfort zone. With no judgement, it's your time to try things you wouldn't/couldn't try in the default world.

You may find that your 2018 trip to BRC is life altering for you.

Re: I want something different

I'm not sure you realize that domesticated farm animals (or any animal) is not allowed on the playa during Burning Man.
A good thought might be to start your own little Kink Kamp. (feel free to use the name, but give me credit)

Welcome sleepwalks. It sounds like you're all ready for a fun and dusty adventure.
You'll have heat, cold, wind, dust and maybe some rain. In other words, you'll feel right at home.
Poke around on eplaya and ask questions if you can't find what you're looking for.

I have a trailer that "sleeps 5" and I find that 2 people are somewhat tight in there.
Also keep in mind that fresh water tanks are tiny and empty quickly, gray water and black water tanks will be full within a day or two. Expect 1 minutes showers if that is the plan.
