I'm hoping so, that was nice during the heat of the day.
I picked up a giant chunk of "only used once" Twin Cities shade cloth last year. 30x40? I'll bring it, along with a bunch of tarp clips and paracord.

Re: Battery impact gun question....

I'm a fan of Ryobi. HD's house brand.
I've used the drills for ages and have been using the 1/4" impact driver for lags the last several burns. They make a decent 12v charger which I tie into my solar setup.
Leaf (dust) blower, work light and fan are good add-on tools for BRC.
