Resurrecting the yurt for this year.. So far adventures include:
Telling my girlfriend to use vinegar to wash off the playa from the taped sections and get the edges ready for new tape, only to realize after she used seasoned vinegar for sushi which has salt and sugar added to it.. Whoops, white vinegar and windex cleared off the sticky eventually
Lots of edge and foil repair. I love foil tape. It is worth the xtra money at HD for the thicker stuff. I kinda wish I had done all of the edging with this stuff!
Door repair and adjustment. I reinforced the door last year and added hinges and a latch. SO great, just need to improve the swing a little..
Swamp cooler is tested and ready for battle again, think I will replace the pad though. FYI, do NOT put melted cooler water in the swamp cooler. It stinks.
Here are some pics of my door piece. I keep the yurt in 3 two-panel sections for the walls and used the Danger hinge method to keep the roof in two pieces. The roof needed the most repair, but still so much easier than having 12 different roof pieces to assemble on playa. Fuck a bunch of that. The white you see of the right side is dry erase paint. It did not survive the winter so I will be redoing that as well. Having a dry erase area on the side wall, and one on the inside as well, is outstanding for leaving notes for friends and partners
