Re: Open camping - planning for 2016

My friend that brings a solar panel has a chain on it to his van. If someone really wanted it, they could use bolt...

Re: What's the single best thing you've worn on the playa?

ooooh. tough question. I would have to go with my dusty trusty grey faux fur coat. It's light enough to not overheat me on warm nights, but warm enough to keep me toasty when needed (and a layer is added underneath). It doubles as a blanket over me at center camp, or to lay directly on the playa to ...

Re: I need a big sturdy dust proof tent for a costume botiqu

Dust proof! I had to laugh! Maybe you should consider a hexayurt with canvas or tarp floor? Use one of the models that is 6 foot for standing and lots of battery powered lights. Just about the only structure I've seen that comes anywhere near "dust proof." But lets face it, dust proof only...

Re: Will store shelves in Reno run out of camping supplies?

I have found that you can pick up what you need in Reno. It might not be exactly the band or color you wanted, but they stock a lot of what you will need.

Being flexible will be the name of the game. Some stores will allow you to preorder and then pick up.

Re: LA - Reno transport? + cheap stay Reno 26-30 Aug + Playa

Circus Circus had cheap rooms the last I checked. There are a lot of burners coming up from LA, not sure about your dates though. Are you on the rideshare board? I used to take greyhound buses a lot and though the LA station was a bit scary, I had no troubles. Isn't there an Amtrak train or something?
