Great idea with the visuals! I have my flashlight as a Must Have (don't go into a potty at night without one), but a great general list.

Spring clamps! We use all sizes for all holding all sorts of things together in camp.

One example:

After a few years of use, they do break. But hey, they work hard while they last!

I also get the little cute colorful ones to use on the Home for Wayward Art.

Glowsticks?

Postby Patamon » Fri Jun 18, 2010 6:22 pm

Don't bring Glowsticks? really?

I don't think word has gotten out on that one yet, you can't swing a dead cat in BRC without hitting a glowstick at night.

Ziplock bags are a must in my book, as are tools, work gloves, cooler, and condoms and lube.

A bike is a "nice" thing to have for me, but I kind of prefer experiencing the city on my own two feet. I've never really felt that I needed the goggles or dust masks either...I don't even bother to pack the masks anymore.

Great list though, and I'll definitely save it to show to any potential virgins!

Seat covers and wipes? What is this, your first time?

Your picture for costumes has feathers. Feathers = MOOP. Don't put bad ideas out into the universe. Listen to yourself (feathers being listed under DON'T).

Yay for glow sticks under don't.

I'm bringing glow sticks...they're cheap and they are recyclable...I don't know who ever got the fucking idea they weren't. I read on here, and other places, all the suggestions... and it seems at times this whole event is driven to make a person spend more and more and more.

"Don't buy that cheap substitute young-un....go buy the playa-approved exorbitant shit...or you'll will be deeply frowned upon!"

WTF?...are you all secret stooges of REI, Kelty, North Face, etc....making sure we all spend genormous amounts of do-re-mi and skip on going for cheap stuff?

And...once again...who ever gave everyone the idea glow-sticks were unrecyclable? With all the tons of shit on the playa that is sooooo unecessary...and generating tons of refuse...what made glow-sticks the plague of the playa?

Hi...just asking. Hehe

This is a nice visual.
It's easy to get distracted with details.

I love those spring clamps. I also bring S hooks for inside easy hangups.

Extra consumables: batteries for flashlights, propane for bbq, etc.
One is none, and two is one.

Highly recommended: tools to fix minor issues on your vehicle (S belt, ability to change a tire).

In your section of what not to bring...oh, nevermind.

See, I've never seen the little number inside the triangle for glow sticks. And I wonder how they seperate out the glass and fluid.

Actually, I'm pro-glowstick. I think that the environmental advantages of non-glowsticks are exageratted.

To me there is little difference between the types of glowsticks, as I find both laying on the open playa all the time, and I use neither.
most of the batterypowered ones are either broken or missing the end when I find them.

if the snapsticks are recycleable, the triangle would be on the package they come in.

Hi...just asking. Hehe


They're a one use item. Far better to get a few cheap LED devices (or even better build your own! :) ) and be able to reuse them over and over. Recharable batteries too of course.

Man... if you're shopping at REI (Really Expensive Items), you deserve to get ripped off. No pity for self inflicted...

I think the main beef with glowsticks is that they are MOOPed by idiot's after the night is over. Far better to encourage them to use something reusable that they won't be quite so willing to forget in the dust somewhere.

A lot of those LED things turn out to be single use items.
In my experience.

Since rebar is listed.. something to cover the ends is always a nice thing..
