Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

I swore I wouldn't but.... Yesterday I bought 2 bolts of tule for tutus, a nice sea horse for Census, and a sterling silver Tiffany's bracelet for making a swag charm bracelet. Can't help myself. I haven't bought anything yet for next year, but I am compiling quite a list: a small propane fire pit ...

Re: Playa Nose? Prevention and tips?

I usually just use a silk scarf or handkerchief for dust abatement for my face during the burn. Well this year my nose was not having it. It was very dry and hurt like no other year. Even saline spray didn't help. A campmate brought some paper filters and I grabbed a few to try on a whim. Though my ...

Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service & Piano Bar - 2016

A loss for the community. So stupid to accuse you of stealing bikes. Unbelievable really.

So sorry you were subjected to such bullshit. Glad to hear the rest of the burn was enjoyable.

Goggles Dyce Sport Black with Light Blue Lenses

Lost one pair of Dyce sport black framed goggles with light blue lenses and sunglass arms (not a strap and probably how they fell off!) at the Temple Burn Sunday night. My favorites :(

Thanks.

I have used a diva cup and I do love the thing but this year I am going to bring tampons and zip locs. I always carry wipes and extra zip locs. +100 for headlamp recommendati...

Re: Batch Cooking

I've done both over the years, no issues (though I personally prefer not to freeze if I can avoid it). Your mileage may vary, but for us custom-making each bag was kind of a pain, especially as we found that most single serving stuff easily fits in a pint bag. I'm sure some food doesn't hold up wel...

Re: Batch Cooking

Look for anything that bills itself as foodsaver compatible, they should all be food grade and BPA free (that's been what I've found). We have both sizes of rolls, but lately we've been preferring the pre-made bags with a zipper. They generally come in pint, quart, and gallon sizes. I like having t...

Re: what's with people looking for a camp

Well, with 25,000 tickets going to theme camps I can see why it's shifting in that direction. I heard that up to 50% of this year's tickets went to out of US buyers. I have no idea if this is true, but it seems likely, due to the huge amount of people posting looking for camps. It's happening in al...

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 ...
