Hey Dan, naw, #4 bar drives quite well with fence post driver or sledge. We'll need equipment to extract the bar sometimes. Got the inverter running at the battery, but not sure the swamp cooler is doing too much.

I noted in the BM map that Monte sent, we're pretty close to open ground on both sides of 3:00 if we run out of room. Post #326, the link doesn't copy here.

Funny I had a feeling! We live in Mexico and own a campground there, off grid, sustainable, on the Pacific Ocean. www.RanchoSolYMar.com. Look froward to meeting and connecting at BM.

As Birgens we are looking for advice specific to bringing "Sylvia" to BM. Should we bring rebar for instance or just lots of jugs to fill with water for weights? Would an additonal shade tent be helpful, we have an awning only. Was there anything after your first time that you thought, wish I had brought...........? Let us know so we can be as prepared as possible and to assist others.
So far I have collected some post cards and plan to pick up stamps, any luck with the rubber stamp yet? Is this something I should order and if so what should the wording be?
Thanks in advance, counting the days now.

If you have camped much, especially in hot weather, you probably know what you'll need. Nights can be quite cold and there is always that pesky wind. Things like bungees and duct tape and tent stakes are always helpful. Mats need to be staked down or they'll blow away in no time. You can never have too much water and you will likely eat less than you think. Ice is available to buy.

We always do a potluck or two. One scheduled one and many impromptu.

A bike is a must and it must be well lit at night. You should be too.
On the outside. Walking around at night you must be visible or you can be run over by a bike or an art car. It's very dark out there.

Keep a good pair of comfortable goggles and a dust mask with you at all times.
Last year was fairly mild but some years are horrendously dusty.

That's off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more thoughts...anyone?

I keep a backpack with me at all times when I'm away from camp. It holds, among other things that I've probably forgotten:
*a water bladder so that I can sip easily throughout the day
*a baggie with sunscreen, lip balm and hand sanitizer
*a small roll (snag one from home just before it runs out) of toilet paper
*a notebook and pen because my mind turns to mush out there
*a small camera, with the first shot taken of my playa address + email
*something on the pack with my playa address and email
*a bandana for dust storms (if it's not already around my neck)
*goggles (although these are usually on my head)
*a mug in case someone is offering something tasty to people with a cup
*a brimmed hat, unless it's on my head
*a granola bar or two in case I'm trapped in a white out dust storm
*a headlamp in case I end up staying out after dark
*a flashing light on the back of my pack for night illumination
*el wire or some other illumination so I'm not a darkwad at night
*my copy of the What When Where and a BRC map
*a bag or pocket dedicated to MOOP I've picked up along the way

(If you don't know what MOOP is, you'll need to re-read your survival guide. Re-reading the survival guide is probably a good idea anyway. It's all true.)

This is the basic core of my pack. Sometimes it has more (my knitting, for instance). If anything seems of questionable utility to you, ask here about why one might want it before you decide to do without.

We use 2' rebar stakes with a 6" rebar cross piece welded on about 6" from one end. These hold against all winds we've encountered so far. we use a small sledge for driving them in and a crowbar for pulling them out.

I'm not sure if jugs filled with water would hold against the strongest winds. 55 gallon drums, maybe. Also, remember that you need to bring the water in with you. There is no place to fill jugs in Black Rock City.

If you plan on using your trailer awning, ask about how to guy it down so that it doesn't get torn or torqued by the winds. I've only been a few times, so I don't have as much experience as others. Every year I've been, though, I've seen tents or carport sized shade structures blown up into the air.

On my first trip, I was fortunate enough to camp with experienced burners who mentored me. One thing I would always recommend bringing is a squirt bottle with diluted white vinegar (about 1 part vinegar to 4-6 parts water). This rinses the alkali dust off better than plain water.

Also, a pack of baby wipes are great for a quick clean up when you don't want to use precious water for a full shower.

Paper towels are great for cleanups since you can put them in a burn barrel near the end and don't need to pack them out. The burn barrels fill in the last day, so burn as you go along, any time you see a public burn barrel lit.
