If the fridge was operating, this is a bad idea. Glad it worked out OK for you. In theory, the fridge plenum is completely seatled from the interior, so it shouldn't do any good (nor be required) to tape the fridge vent openings.

Naww...didnt use the fridge at all, so that wasnt an issue.. I didnt want the dust to get into the cooling fan, and all that "interior" space behind the two vent doors - It would have been very difficult to clean all the nooks and crannies in there and the stuff is corrosive if left....so.... It worked out fine.

Cheers

Wow, you missed one of the great Airstream pleasures at Burning Man--opening the freezer for a scoop of ice cream!

Hey RMB, thanks for the big projection TV. Seems to work great after it's week in the dust. (I rigged up a hoist at home to get it off my truck, and I don't think I'll vollunteer to carry it back out for next year).
Re the refrigs, hope you didn't miss the frozen strawberry margaritas mine made, it made two batches solid on playa this year.

Perry, You can do it. Watching the Trailer Park Boys-Priceless. I'll help you if you need some lifting power.

Adios,

Dan

I am being flooded with catalogs for Christmas most of which I throw out. However one item caught my eye...No not Victoria's Secret ( she doesnt have any left!) but a neat little printer that will pump out a 4x6 colour photo from an iphone. I immediately thought of the postcard booth that Perry put up. We could take photos of Burners "as they are" and they could use them as postcards too. If you like the idea, I'll buy the thing and the supplies for lots of photos.

If the media is printable on both sides, you could preprint one side with a suitable postcard-looking motif "from Burning Man," and "par avion," etc.

We had a friend that did something similar to this. He took pictures of a number of the core projects and the Man and made a little collage on the front and it had postcard motif on the back. I wrote, Wish you were here. It's one of my favorite mementos. I still wish I were there every time I look at it.

One thing we found out this year is that the Post Office gives out free postcards and they are located in a much higher traffics area. We set up a "DIY" table for post cards but had few takers, not sure it warrants more effort and money. Perhaps we can think of something else?

Something cold and wet is almost always welcome, and is a great draw. Our camp had a bar for the first time in 2012 and it was a big hit. We brought nothing but the bar and our patrons brought all the spirits, which made it even more fun because you never knew what someone would come up with.
Also, you could rent a sno-cone machine and make lemondrop sno-cones! Margarita sno-cones, White Russian sno-cones! Bloody Mary sno-cones! Go crazy!

Our "Best Playa Postcards" was brought to us and run by ChollaBill and Anne for two years, but they didn't make it to the playa this year; partly through problems with this years designated theme camp ticket program. We hope they'll make it back home next year.

My plan for 2013 is having a flamingo lounge. I will make spicy flamingo shots with chile infused vodka and pink lemonade. Also going to soak gummy bears in vodka to give out. Wondering if there are gummy flamingos

Let me know if you need some Habaneros to infuse. We dehydrate the ones from our garden and make some awesome infused vodka. When we use Tito's we call it Tito's Tangy. It only takes a couple days to get REALLY tangy. Makes a great Bloody Mary. MMMMM.
