ohmygod this is fucking brilliant. how have i never thought of this??? you've totally transformed my burn.
Someone else posted that this was a pretty inefficient way of evaping. I saw a reference to 5% an hour. That's a lot of flame- a lot of wood (weight and volume).
Conditions have to be right (no or low wind), precautions taken against spilling onto playa (or flame), and the fire has to be tended.
If the 5% thing is correct, you're going to boil off a quart of water an hour from a 5 gallon pot.
Thanks, but I'll pay the USS guys $50 to drain the fifty gallons from my barrel towards the end of the week.
50 gallons? whoa.
i don't plan to have very much gray water. i do baby wipe baths so the bulk of my water waste is from feet washing and teethbrushing (which i will be using melted ice water from my cooler for). i intend to filter, sanitize, and sprinkle that for dust control around my shelter. but now i know i have a super extra emergency backup plan to get rid of anything that, for some reason, can't hit the playa. i can come back with ZERO grey water
