Since I have been chosen to be king of Burning Man this year, I got one of my crowns yesterday. I'm having the rest of my wardrobe custom tailored as we speak.

Holy crap, that crown is AMAZING, TT120!!!

Congrats, oldguy! That's a good reminder for us all, remember that the Burner Profiles page has recently migrated to a .org domain - that means that any stored username/passwords will have to be re-entered. If you're the sort of person who might try to log in on the day of registration and then freak out or suffer brain freeze in all the excitement... you should go log into your account now just to make sure everything goes nice and smoothly.

Speaking of freeze, I remembered that after last year's weather I should probably add thermal underwear to my playawear arsenal.

Scored idiot strings for my hearing aids.. Playa wind suck hearing aid out of your head...

Had my aids in for some repair @ the Va.. Looks like heavy fishing line..

A adjustable loop on each end and a roach clip to attach to my collar..

Already have a string for glasses and hat.. Saves run down the playa after shit.

Agreed! already added to the bin. Should be a mandatory packing item on everyone's list.

After last year's freeze I should sew an electric heating blanket into pants so I can de-thaw my limbs before going to bed. ;-)

My little camp is too small to have a fire but I did make some 'buddy burners'. They burn for an hour and produce a tiny campfire for us to warm our hands in the morning over coffee.

Could you give a tad more detail on the 'Buddy Burners'? I've been saving dryer lint and candle and cheese wax for something useful, and it seems a little burner might be just the thing!

It's not all that scary, Ratty...
dryer lint saturated with wax lights a campfire quite nicely, I must say....
that way, you actually get to eat the corn chips, instead of using them to start the fire.

Dryer lint and wax doesn't taste too good, and the lint gets stuck between your teeth. 8)

I ordered 2 dozen orange bandannas I am going to screen-print and hand out as gifts.

Image

However they are red, not very "square" and only 20 of them made it. I need to find some higher quality bandannas.

Nope. That one was sacrificed to the Great Garbage Can of the Sands... *sigh*

Suffice it to say, I have plenty of wax, after living without electricity for 32 years, using alot of candles (and kerosene lamps) while being The Pack Rat From Hell. :wink:


But I'm still curious about your little buddy burners...

Patsh, I didn't think you were serious. OK. A little buddy burner. You can find it on pinterest with how-to videos. It's a tuna or cat food can. Cut corrugated cardboard the height of the can and roll it up tightly. Put that spiral of cardboard in the can and fill it with melted candle wax. You can stick old pieces of wick in there to help you light it or just leave some cardboard sticking up a quarter inch. the length of time that it burns depends on the wax and how tightly you rolled the paper among other things. approximately 50 minutes. I love em for a tiny fire when we feel like one. I make em in all shapes and sizes. some have metal lids for going in my pack. (Or even a catfood lid you get at the dollar store.) Have fun with it but I'm not sure about burning the cheese wax.

Thanks, Ratty! Now I remember having seen this somewhere a while back, and thinking it was such a good idea, then promptly forgetting all about it.... :roll:

Unjohn, Thanks. That's a great idea. I just watched a couple of how to videos. 91 % rubbing alcohol. One roll of TP burns for 2 hours. I like it. I'm not sure I'll ever do it but thanks for the new/old tip.

Last night I made 32 face masks while watching TV. I'm going to have an interactive workshop for personalizing these in camp this year. (I know. I was planning to be a tourist and just party for the whole time. Plans change.) The foam and fur seats were a huge success but I can bring 1,000 or two facemasks and only 100 foam seats fit in the van. Plus it's more fun cutting and sewing facemasks than it is cutting foam and fur squares.

I was browsing a sporting goods store to see if there was anything interesting and look what the universe provided. 4 shot tins that fit in this nifty container.

I didn't know such a thing existed.

I need to amend that last post of mine.

Forget that. I'm having so much fun sewing on them. There is no more decorations necessary. I'll just make a butt load of these and have fun giving em away.
