1. Very quick flushes to minimize introduction of flush water

2. For femes, get a pee funnel so you can [relatively] comfortably use a porta-pot for #1.

3. Bring backup poop baggies for the emergency situation when you have filled the black tank. These are the "approved" devices mandated by BLM when you do back country hikes. I'm thinking they may fit nicely into the Aqua Magic bowl.

4. As a very last resort, the porta-pots are always available--get a clothespin for you nose and sanitary seat covers...etc. etc.

Thanks Zep. Wish you were going to be there? Is it true you won't?

Unfortunately true.

In the toilet strategy answer above, I forgot to mention what most Burners would have mentioned:

5. Honey trucks cruise the playa, so along around Wed or Thurs, you can flag them down and get pumped. That's a big reason the parking is carefully arranged--so the pump truck can get to all the Airstreams that need them.

As a matter of principle, I try to avoid needing such services (radical self-reliance).

For the record, the porta potties are pumped and cleaned every morning. They really are usable especially if you are way out in the playa. Not as nice as your own, but, there ya have it.

$60 cash? Or do they take plastic?

Just cash. A lot. But...an empty black tank on a hot day can be priceless.

Just wishing all you burners a bon voyage for your stay on the playa.
I'm still stuck in the "default world" with my downsizing, selling, need to get next (solar, new TV), issues. So I lurk around here keeping some of that home on the playa vibe, BMIR helps too.

Looking at the Burning Man live web feed today - looks like the playa is getting mud today rather than dust. Ah, the joys of the desert! Ya'll have fun!

Dear Airstream Burners,

Is there by chance still a spot available in the Airstream camp? My mother in law threw her hip out today and may not be able to attend, but will still let me borrow her Rialta to attend. She was to stay in mobility camp but I don't feel right taking the spot. Would be nice to join a rally, even if my international CCD is at home.

Cheers


Airstream Dad

Yes, go to 3:00 and "I" and look for the camp. It will be within 1/2 block of that corner.

Wish I could be there to park you.
