Last Minute Reminders.....

Postby maeabee » Sat Aug 21, 2004 2:54 pm

Making a list and checking it twice, gonna find out who forgot what. Obviously the necesseties, water, food, shelter. It's the small things that we forget and those small things end up being quite important. Canned foods need a can opener. Lots of extra trash bags are always helpful. Hygiene products and LOTS AND LOTS of TP!!! Everyone uses it and it's nice to have extra in case your neighbor may not have packed so well. If you need to go through a daily schedule of yourself at home. All the things you use daily, you'll need out there too and then some. Ask friends what they're bringing. Just thought I'd remind you NOT TO FORGET YOUR TICKET!!! :)

very helpful burning man packing and tool lists

Postby Roo » Sat Aug 21, 2004 3:28 pm

Hey all

I've found this list invaluble. You can download it from
http://www.crunchymama.com/
It was put together by the fabulous Crunchy, who we just can't live without.

I've also compiled a burning man tool list. It is by no means complete (you need specific tools for specific art projects) but I have found the following list to be a good starter kit to get you through. (add to it as you see fit. More tools. Good.)


Roo's Playa Tool Checklist

ESSENTIALS:
Tool belt (really handy for knowing where everything
is and having on hand)
Hammer
4-way screwdriver
Dikes
Needle-nosed pliers
Mat knife (box cutter) with replacement blades
Flashlight or headlamp
Crescent wrench
Measuring tape
GLOVES
Sharpies
WD40 + a wash rag (for cleaninating and
de-rustifying!)

OTHER GOOD TOOLS TO HAVE:
Cordless screwgun
Cordless circular saw
Staple gun with extra staples
Vice grips
#1 and #2 Grip clips (aka pony clamps or spring
clamps)
Duct tape
Electrical tape
Cloth aka Gaff tape
Fluorescent gaff tape
Sledge hammer (your camp only needs 1 or 2 of these)
Channel locks
Plumber's tape
Safety pins
Clothes pins
Gator grip (universal socket wrench)
Hex key set
Bailing wire
Rope and sash cord
Bungees and ratchet straps
Super glue or one of the several variations thereof
Drill bits

Important things not to forget:

1. Pay your rent (if it's due on the 1st) or any other bills that will be due while you're gome.

2. Hold your mail. https://dunsapp.usps.gov/HoldMail.jsp

Clean out the fridge before you go. Unlike wine, milk tends not to improve with age. Not that I've ever forgotten this. Nope. Not me.

Why bring TP? The only stuff you can drop in the porta-potties is single ply, which doesn't run out too often these days. I bought a little emergency packet of single ply biodegradable TP 3 years ago and keep bringing it back with me. I still haven't used it.

Do bring paper towels, headlamp, extra flashlight, EXTRA BATTERIES FOR THE LIGHTS, baby powder or gold bond for chafing issues, lots of rope, and some way to carry water around with you.

Your TICKET.

Every year without fail someone in the group has to go fetch their ticket when we do the ticket check.

I would have forgotten about the rent, and didn't even know it was possible to hold mail online.
