Anyone have some tips for summer camping?

Links to decent battery powered fans or air coolers?

Thanks.

The search internally here sucks.

But, if you google eplaya with your keyword(s), you'll get a wealth of burner information.

Good luck!!

Most of the time, keeping cool while you sleep after dark won't be a problem-it gets cold on the playa at night. But, once the sun comes up, it warms up fast. That's when it is time to wake up, find a patch of shade outside, and get hydrated and nutritated for the next day's shenanigans.

Having a shade awning/tarp over the tent will give you a couple of more hours before getting too hot to sleep. Or, off the playa, camping under trees.

Fortunately for you, you have a whole extra year to learn how to find easily available information!
