Anyway, I feel bad for that poor little "cuddle puddle" tent. Its flaps are gonna be spread open more often than Paris Hilton at a rock concert.

Every time you think of something that you want to bring to the playa, put it by the front door.

Keep doing this even after you can't use the front door because of "all the things". (use the back door)

The day before leaving, stuff all of this into the tranportation pod, even if it takes crow bars and rammers.

That way you won't forget anything. 8)

Don't worry about packing much, the playa will provide...
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Be sure to stop in Reno and buy lots of marginal stuff. That way, when you get back to San Francisco and Alameda Counties, you will have enough chintzy paper bags to line your garbage can into next year.

I've been spray painting some signs to go up around camp. lots of signs. In the basement.
think I may have found a new habit. funny how good spray painting can make you feel.
i might have to bring some cans with me to the playa...
think i figured out a way around the drug sniffing dogs.
any word on how law enforcement looks on 5 cases of krylon?
went to home d- today, ordered the paint, they asked "what color?"
I said, "doesn't really matter."

You'll want acetone based butylmethylcellulose paint.
Sweet.

Since the playa was the location of open air nuclear tests, be sure to only drink heavy water.

Most RV's have a 2.5" stretchy tube stashed someplace near the back of the RV. It would be big enough to go around your nose and mouth! :wink:

Dye beard pink - while under car, with ATF fluid.

Pink beard wouldn't cause a blink at BRC, but with 2,900 miles one way, I can see how this might play out when filling up at the truck stops...
