Re: Best make & model dust mask & goggles

Keep in mind that I haven't been out there yet, but I based my selection on several goggle threads around this forum. I wear prescription glasses. Doesn't seem like a good idea to wear contacts in a dusty situation. My main daytime glasses will be these: http://www.riderseye.com/ItemDetail.asp?c=Cat...

Re: Using Solar Panels

Just bought a new 30W solar panel for $57 + tax, free shipping! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150864773801 They have more available.

I could express theirselves! But seriously, good tip. I will NOT be ready mentally, emotionally, or fashionably. Just survival for now, and let the rest happen.

Re: Man Clothes

As a first time burner who is taking the self-reliance thing a bit seriously, I'm terrified of not having the stuff I need. So this year I'm taking everything that you would normally put in a backpack, except stuffed in all the little pockets on a military mesh tactical vest. Goggles, boots, camelba...
