Re: Good Advice for Virgin Burners

- Leather gloves: leather work gloves are more comfortable and grip better if you turn them inside-out. Holy shit. That's a game-changer right there. I don't like wearing gloves but I do enough hauling, schlepping, hammering, knot-tying, and basic rigging that I need to. This is such simple advice ...

Re: 'Joe-ba-ha' you out there? Video from last year

I really liked this. It felt real, moreso than a lot of Burning Man videos. The first "I wonder if you're out there... I miss you" hit me pretty hard. It would have stood on its own, even without the rest revealing about Lisa.

Also, the city is HUGE! Two salsa events at the same time aren't likely to be near each other, so any passersby drawn from the streets won't be competed for by the other camp.

I wonder if you could make a playa shade structure out of those, covered with a tarp or the silver netting stuff. I'd add a string of random blinking lights behind just the synapse parts. And chasing lights down the synapse connections arms. would be something to sit back and stare at. You'd probab...

Even if your friends bail, you can come by Center Camp anytime and hang out with the lamplighters! Our lounge is full of new friends :)

If you come by in the afternoon, you can be a Lamplighter in the procession - no need to sign up in a schedule.

Re: Contained, propane firepit?

Gateway, the big worry is burn scars. Elevate away from the surface of the playa so the heat doesn't bake dust into a hard, difficult-to-remove chunk. You're not proposing anything so large as an open bonfire, but here is the background reading so you're informed: http://burningman.org/event/prepara...
