Well, if we are dropping name brands, "Glacier Potato Vodka" is my favorite. A bit more expensive, it is really smooth, made from potatoes, and doesn't taste like paint thinner! It also mixes nicely with other stuff (Diet Mountain Dew, V8 Splash, Orange Juice, et al). I also like the various Woodchu...

Hmmm.... How about going in pretending that you are a serial killer, and need a base away from home from which to operate, and then add the layer that you are very bad a covering up your activities?

Hey! The Onion is where I get all my information on Burning Man!!!
:lol:

(Well, okay, a former employee of the Onion is one of my sources of information on Burning Man, and, no, I don't believe he was the author of any of the BM articles in the Onion..., the timing would have been wrong.)

Consider: the Mongols don't build decks for their girs (yurts) and they live in a worse desert than we do
Good point. Ya know, if I still had my job at the hospital, I might ask some of them about yurts/girs...! :)

I have some of the same problems with building and transporting a deck. I was thinking more of some sort of ground cloth attached to the walls or some such.

The anchoring information definitely helps!


Thanks!

Hey, I have been thinking about using Burning Man as an excuse to build a yurt (or is that the other way around?). I downloaded the link from AE's website, but I still have some questions: 1) how does one go about putting a floor in one of these things? The SCA structure doesn't seem to have a floor...

Hi! A group of us (the number at this time is uncertain-- at least three people, maybe eight or more) are hoping to make it to Burning Man in 2005 (considering our level of organization and resources, 2004 is out of the question!). We will be driving from Madison, Wisconsin. What I gather from this ...
