Re: Favorite art 2014?

While it's very tough to see all the art at Burning Man, it's also very difficult to chose favorites of those you did see. But, there were a couple I kept going back to. I really loved Charles Gadeken's piece "Squared" http://www.charlesgadeken.com/art/squared for several reasons. It refreshingly pl...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Yup, also brought too much food, and not enough of the right food. I noted all this and stuck it in my folder for a reminder next time. It seemed like a very warm year during the nights. I only wore warm clothes three times at night. Although I missed the M&G I did stop by the night before with Sham...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Unloading and cleaning has been set back by unwelcome UTI infection. It's still not resolved after 4 days of Cipro. I'm wondering if all my bike-riding and pee-holding broke something up in there. Sorry if TMI but this is making me miserable!

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

That's super nice looking maladroit! My own mini cooler design failed twice. :-( Next time I'll have to follow Figjam's instructions exactly and just have a big one maybe on the outside of the trailer. Speaking of the trailer, it's ALL PACKED! Now I just have to fold it down, add the bike to the bac...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Had to focus on work all day but tomorrow is aaalllll about packing! I have lists and the lists have lists! The only bad thing is that I have a scratchy tickle in my throat. :-( I'm hoping to leave town Friday AM for Reno and outrun this crappy cold everyone seems to have.

It seems like all I'm doing is going from room to room moving stuff into different piles all day long! There's the Drive Up and Hotel pile, the ...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

I spent a few hours inventorying the big shade structure I'm bringing for the camp's kitchen/dining area. I had to hose off a tarp that had 2012 Playa on it! Second day of practice riding my Playa bike...OOOF I'm so out of shape. I'm taking it slow and steady so I don't walk around with a sore butt ...

Alas Sham I'm CERTAIN it will not fit you and just to be sure I'll be locking it up at camp! ;-0

Today: Pretty much finished buying my food, relying on canned and packaged mostly and bought lil 1/2 size cans. Focusing mostly on small bites, salty snacks and easy-to-cook stuff.

I made the first-timer mistake of bringing toooooo much food. You really don't eat as much as you think you will. I cut it by 1/3 the next year and still brought too much. I wish I had known.

Re: Food/Drink: What worked - what didnt

To keep food dry inside a large ice chest (good for egg cartons, alternative milk containers, anything you don't want to get water in) I stick my delicate foods into one of these and put it into the ice chest.

Today, back to expanding my light-up coat. Thanks for your kind words. He's improving faster than I would have expected but he still cannot come to Black Rock.

Yesterday I spent pretty much the entire day emailing about camp stuff. My last few days before leaving Australia were hectic and unusually drama filled so I was a couple of days behind.
