Re: Police Using Entrapment

anyone asking you about drugs is either working for the cops or very stupid...however if you are clean it can be entertaining to give them a hug "No, but thanks for asking (hug)" - freaks them out every time

Re: Fuel delivery on playa and fuel storage rules

there is a difference between performance and permission.... The OP seems to be seeking permission, in written form. This will always be in the form of least helpful/most-restrictive/followed-by-almost-no-one (due to our Lawyer-rich society) What is important is that you do not spill fuel onto the p...

Re: New Theme Camp Frustration

being a veteran Burner, you certainly are aware that problems tend to get magnified on-playa, not go away. It appears the three Leaders of this camp have communication and boundary issues. These will only get worse on-playa. Also, now it is just the three of you stressing - the rest of the camp is (...

Re: Manta Car Structural Help!

with wings like that you might be able to put a pulley at each wing tip then run a cable internally through (or under) the wings around each pulley. By pulling on that cable the wings would be pulled towards each other...how the cable is pulled, and how the tips are balanced so they stay in synch he...

Re: Manta Car Structural Help!

first, will you be driving it to the Playa (street-worthy needed) or hauling it on a trailer (not needed to be street-worthy)? Where will you store it off season, and do they allow "art cars"? you want to ideally attach the frame to the vehicle chassis. Think receiver hitches on a car (look up how t...

Re: What's the deal with boots

The reason I generally do not wear lightweight shoeboots or sandles is the dust factor - your socks get saturated with dust (even with ankle-high boots). when this combines with sweat from your feet, this eventually makes for a messy situation. As long as you are prepared to change socks several tim...

Re: How fast can you charge an electric cart?

a rule of thumb for charging is 1/10th the total capacity as a max charging rate....faster and you risk damaging your batteries. So if you have 200 amp-hours of total batteries, you should not exceed 20 amp charging rate...this also implies ~10 hours for a full charge...so if your genny is running a...

Re: an accumulator cannon question

I built a small-ish system in 2006 that used an old fire extinguisher as the accumulator (everything fit inside the turret of my BioTrak bicycle powered tank). Used 3/8 inch pipes. Made a decent sized 3-5' ball of flame every 30 seconds or so. The biggest issue that year was the ignition system - I ...

I have a gp medium army tent (16'x32' floor space)...I think it is a great addition to a BM camp. The sides roll-up making it a canopy, and when the dust storms hit and the sides are rolled down you can barely tell. Yes, they do get a bit hot during the day, but with the sides rolled up the shade be...
