Specifically Burning Man items? Never heard of one. Used items in general: craigslist is always good, or you could check your local area for recycling yards.

I guess I just like the Kn--especially when you get to pronounce the K. They should never have let me take german--it's given me all sorts of weird habits.

For large tanks, a farm and ranch supply. For large tents, military surplus. Used lumber, check out a construction site. some of the best lumber I ever acquired came out of an old school that was demolished. That stuff was true 2"X4" lumber and was practically petrified!

Let's be clear here. France was top nation from Louis IVX (at the latest) until 1825. Much longer than Germany and certainly the land power to England's supremicy on the waves...
