Socks. Lots and lots of socks.

Putting on a pair of fresh and clean socks can be close to life-changing.

Re: Leaving Burning Man Early?

Looks like charter flight is your best option. Honestly, I would not risk it, you have a lot at stake. If it rains, you are stuck on the playa, they close the road and the airport. This happened this year, it could easily happen again. +1 for AntiM. You want to attend half the burn, and by doing so...

Re: Question about older RV and seatbelt/lapbelt

If your vehicle ONLY has lap belts (pre-66 or 68, maybe) that is all you are required to use,

Be prepared to be pulled over. Keep a copy of your registration readily available.

Re: Towing a car

I believe the answer depends if the car you are towing is a "regular" passenger car, an art car, a mutant vehicle, or transportation for the disabled.

Each one of those possibilities requires some different type of pass/registration.

Re: Low tire in the middle of nowhere?

I have a foot pump for emergency use. Never used it, but it would seem to be less tiring to use.

Also, being that I weigh 220+, I was planning on having gravity do some of the work for me.

Also, if space allows it, a FULL size jack and lug wrench can make changing a tire much easier than the compact one that comes with most new cars.
