Re: Playa wind nightmare stories

^ repost! :P I wouldnt call it a nightmare, but this year we had a dust devil blow through our camp. It was really amazing to watch. We were sitting on our bikes, holding beers and getting ready to head out in the middle of the day. I watched a little wind kick up, start swirling next to one of our ...

Re: Looking for experienced advice on how a theme camp matur

Dazoo -- this camp sounds suspiciously familiar ;) Awesome advice, guys. Fishy's advice of avoiding secrecy is probably best of all, since the people in your camp ARE your friends (or good friends of good friends), and you don't want to unnecessarily piss them off. It's nice to hear that everyone's ...

Re: Drilling holes for rebar

I can confirm that predrilling the rebar kicks ass. For one, it makes hammering it in straight and vertical muchhhhhh easier. The strength didn't appear to be compromised at all. That stuff was solid. I used a 1/2" masonry drill bit that was 12 inches long (as pictured). My friends who spent hours l...

Re: Dura cool pad sourcing difficulty

I had the same issue. I ended up going to ace hardware (south of Novato at pini ace) , and purchasing the blue mesh air filter stuff. The 70 year old employee there said his son uses it for swamp coolers. Anyone have experience with that stuff? It looks quite similar to the Duracool. It's darker blu...

Drilling holes for rebar

Pounding rebar is a pain, so I've had the thought to predrill 1/2" holes for it with a one foot masonry bit (see picture - sorry it's huge, don't know how to resize on my phone). Three questions: 1.is this worthwhile (ie. Will it actually save me effort)? 2.will predrilling my holes result in a less...

Agreed. Don't cut your tarp or it will tear like hell. Also don't use zip ties. Use bungee balls. Zip ties snap and create moop and are not reusable.
