Hello Everybody! We are Olga & Dmitry. This is our third Burning Man, but first with our 20ft. 09 Flying Cloud. Any tips any suggestions? We will arrive on Monday evening, or Tuesday 31
Great video. Safe Travels to all!

Thanks! now I gotta find that receipe again and probably double it again. Would you believe my 32 year old refrig froze that stuff on the way out, and I only turned on the refrig in Carson City I believe. Still working on an idea to make a DC swamp cooler out of my middle ceiling vent, it might make mud out of the dust anyway so far. I suspect we'll have more colder weather at night than hot in the day.
Stores: get ear plugs, more stamps, maybe some donuts or something for the greeters; remember to have dirtyable clothes on at the gate. Maybe some Grey Goose for the host and it's only:
12 days until LUCY, I'M HOME!

Hi folks -

Since our Tin Pickle's shower isn't yet rebuilt (but at least the rear end separation is! fixed), we'll be setting up a external shower enclosure + evap w/ our usual pump-accelerated evaporation gadget. Fellow campers are welcome to use this w/ a solar shower bag....

I was motivated by all the info I have found on the web, and built a pump assisted evap pond, too. Be glad share.

This trip is kinda like the monkey who got his tail in a lawn mower, it's not long now......

I can't wait to see everyone on the Playa.
Hi SR -
we will be arriving monday, leaving as early as we can wake up, from Reno. So I expect we'll be there around noon. We have some extra chairs we can bring, and one of those backyard fire pits that is elevated off the ground. We will have to leave on thursday, as I have been tasked to perform a wedding in the bay area that weekend (mail-order minister

Oh good for the fire pit! I went by one i wanted to pick up at a garage sale, it was gone before I got back for it.
And on parking, last I heard there'll be a 14'high geodesic dome by Zia, and NevadaGold will have a fair sized tent and Mark's nephew will have a 27'sob. Any others out there?

That is extremely nice of you! I'd love to use it, as the shower I have been trying to replace has not panned out :-) Sponge baths are great, but occasionally one needs a REAL shower.

Fire Pit requires Wood

Hi "Air-Burners"

For us to use the fire pit.... we need wood... lets plan for each of us bringing a "few" pieces to "burn".... Yeah...

I can bring a large tarp for the common area shelter, but I don't have stakes or poles to support. Bringing couple of extra chairs too...

Pink Flamingo drinks available when we have our potluck or when the "urge" calls....

We are departing from Reno (the final leg)... our plans are to leave very early Monday AM... anticipate 4-5AM departure... anyone want to caravan from Sparks????

Itching to Burn.... T&M

We're showing up on Monday morning (1 am) w/ a rather embarrassingly large collection:
  1. 45' of Airstream + TV
  2. one additional van (and Prius, but that can be cached elsewhere)
  3. two smallish mutant vehicles ("RoboShaw" and "Hey Wagon"). These get parked at the street boundary....
  4. two 10x10 monkey huts (one is shelter for tent & tools, other is external dining room/social hang space)
  5. one approx. 10x10 Bedouin tent (tent shelter & social space)
  6. 5' x 8' shared shower & evap
We'll be leaving the following Monday.

Dust and temperature reduction protocol?

Ok, folks -

This will be my seventh burn - but my first in a 'stream. How do I manage vents/windows to minimize temps and dust inside? We don't plan on using trailer during the heat of the day but like to sleep in until 10 or 11 after carousing until 4 or 5...

Thanks!

- Bart

here is a pic of the fire pit - nothing grand, but I don't suppose we will need a huge fire.....

The other Coffman

Ed has already departed NC and is in route. Due to the travel distance it will just be 25' Airstream and about 20' of F250. No other structures.

Close everything! Use AC to maintain interior temps.
I have replaced my screens with insulated panels to keep the heat out, and the dark in. They are just 1/8" plywood with Prodex insulation laminated on one face.
I'm hoping to bring a 4' x 50' roll of Prodex with me for making foil hats for everyone. Maybe even a tinman suit, if I'm feeling ambitious. Anybody have any silver face paint?
