Re: How safe is burning man?

I think I'd have a hard time kicking someone out of my camp if I couldn't give them somewhere else to go. I might be mad enough to send them out with nothing but whatever they brough for their own survival (and if they didn't bring enough, screw them, they can go home!), but I would feel guilty lat...

Re: How safe is burning man?

Being in a "sex positive" camp, we have a plethora of whips, chains, crops and various utensils of torture, bondage and implements of misery. For some reason, this seems to keep everyone respectful.

Re: How To Burn

It took a wicked gust of wind and a smashed finger to make me realize the camp is in good hands without me. The biggest lesson learned by me this year is to delegate more. As someone who spends all year planning, plotting, building, hunting and gathering for the camp, it is difficult to hand "my bab...

Re: car battery for power source?

We burned 300W/hr continuous. When the PONY was used and abused, that adds another 80W alone. Bar blenders, vibrators, violet wands would add additional, intermittent requirements. We have TWO 5kWhr Solar/wind power arrays. On the three windiest days/nights, we only ran the genset to make coffee in ...

It appears nothing is available on the link except the option to donate $$. Tutorials, forums and even FAQ tabs take us nowhere other than the home page. Solicitations of funding for a non-burningman project just might be against eplaya terms of service.
