Nah, professional. :D

I'm just un it for the challenge. MREs and bagged Indian are perfectly good survival food, but how awesome would a stone baked pizza, still smoking hot from the stone in the 4M chill?

Hey, CapSmashy, how bad is that thing on propane? I can survive on canned crap with my backpacking burner, but I cook for a living and for fun, and if it is worth the propane, I might try and get one of those.


Nothing could be better than fresh-baked pretzels at 3am post-party.

I suppose it counts, just got a great deal on a 1991 GMC truck that I'm going to run out to the Burn this year.

Oddly, this old-ass V6 gets about the same mileage as my old Focus. :)

Like the lady says, do some googling, find a state park near you, and get at least a couple nights camping in as soon as the weather won't kill you.


I assumed this is how everyone tested their gear and packing lists before the long drive to the burn, is it just me?

It isn't. I'm actually hopeful that Assange will be out of circulation now, and the Wikileaks organization can get back to being a host for whistleblowers' material rather than putting off other pertinent releases to back Assange's tilting at the US Government windmill.

Honestly, from what's been posted about the actual composition of the playa dust, it's no worse on a car than winters in the midwest, with the roads covered in salt and sand.
