I'm with the Captain on this one. I'm struck by the number of people who have these great "ideas" and just need - A. Materials B. Someone to realize this idea and C. The means to get it to the playa. It just don't work like that. Having built 2 MV's, (small ones!) there is a tremendous amount of tim...

I'm modeling my first hexa yurt to take this year to the playa, and from what I can see, the sky's the limit as to how fancy you can be. With some gables or porticos either real or facaded, it could really get elaborate. I'll send along an example when I get done. If you want something simple, you m...

Victorian, There is no rhyme nor reason for these things. I was the last person I know that thought big love would find me, and in all places Burning Man. But I did. No one can tell you what you might find. That's your journey. But I would say this; if you know yourself you will know what is right f...

The funny thing is, I always considered myself a romantic and assumed true love would find me sooner rather than later. And I did have good relationships, a good marriage, fine kids. But through all of that, I never really felt the pull of passionate absolutely, where have you been all my life?, you...

I actually thought I would never fall in love. Then I went to my first burn in 2008. Was overwhelmed with all the great things that were happening around me. Out late with friends and that is when I saw her. This spirit just dancing, dancing dancing. There were some other guys trying to dance with h...

I agree with ExpressoDude. I have built two mutant vehicles using golf carts as starting points; one electric, one gas. The electric was much harder to maintain and not as reliable. And unless you can be on the grid, you are running a generator for much of the day to keep it going. Incorporating a s...

Just wanted you to know this discussion is raging across the border in Canada too. A friend of mine from Calgary sent this response to a regional buner page in Alberta: "I saw the banner and was annoyed by it too. But we are already assaulted by banner advertising all over Black Rock City. The messa...

As with everything, it really comes down to balance. The attempt should be; Rv's to the back of camp, and shade structure seating etc. on the street. Think of it like a front porch where you hang out and call to passersbys who are in your neighborhood. I think rv/ campers are fine as long as they do...
