Glad you made it home. Great to meet you. We're in Moab tonite. The inside is clean, outside has a few streaks.

Lots of fun to be had on the playa.

I showed my son the Playa dust and he says it's very similiar to the dust he encountered in Iraq. He says when it gets wet it sticks to everything.

Before we rinsed the trailer off at the campground in Klamath Falls I was startled when I saw it parked from a distance. It looked like it had been painted metallic white. The dust coating was so evenly spread to the surface it looked like a different trailer. Not a bad looking trailer. I'm sure I'll be finding dust in places for a while now. But thats OK. The memories are all good and the dusty reminders will be good too.

The dust may be indeed a good sealer. It can't hurt. I haven't washed it down yet as I've been busy.

BTW, some of the more interesting events at BM included "Fisting with Foxie" and "Booty Wonderland". There were also some extremely interesting talks on geology, photography, yoga, music, film etc. A very good time........

Adios,
Dan

Playa Dust

The dust is very fine, as in small, and when mixed with water become cement-like. Unfortunately it rained lightly the night before I left, thus fusing the dust to my truck and AS. I collected more dust on the exit road and when I hit the pavement and got up to speed I was trailing a cloud behind me. When I got home I hosed my trailer down but it has to be scrubbed with soap and water. The interior is a mess and I can't hose that down. I've sponged of counters, stove, and refer and there are still streaks. If any Burners have a magic formula for playa dust removal, I'd like to know. BTW Dan, playa dust has a pH of 9 which is very alkaline and can't be good for the aluminum.

What a time we had. We stayed in the Airstream Camp with maybe 20 other Airstreamers. I met all of the people I've been talking on the Burning Man Planning Thread and we had a ball. Special thanks to Perry, Bam Gary, Don, Holly, Dan and everybody else.

There were lots of other Airstreams there but not in our camp. I didn't count but my guess would be 30. Airstreams were very well represented.

Burning Man, what can I say. Non-stop. Music, Booze, Drugs, Costumes, Bikes, Nudity, Amazing structures, Dust and more dust, It wuz awesome.

I was at the Skinny Kitty one day listening to the music and gabbing and I got up and left and forgot my cell phone there. When I discoveed It missing I was sure it was gone. I pedaled back to the Skinny Kitty (Two hours had passed) and some guy handed me the phone asking me if I was Dan. That act of honesty was amazing.

We ate well, drank well, slept well, made some new friends

The Playa is the most desolate place I've ever seen. It is well suited though for the week long festival. The area was laid out well, there was plenty of sani-cans. The roads were sprayed regularly. The event was very well organized. Organized mayham.

The very dry desert air dries your sweat out almost immediately so it's hard to tell that you're becoming dehydrated. I was drinking lots of water (over two liters a day) and was careful with the alochol. Did I mention the booze. It was everywhere and everybody had bars set up in front of their camps. Lots of people drank both early and hard.

I rode my bike everyday and saw as much as I could but wore out fast and ended up spending most afternoons snoozing in the trailer.

All in all it was a blast.

Adios,
Dan

Diluted vinegar in water works well to cut the dust when wiping things clean. I have heard, but have not yet confirmed, that adding a bit of calgon to this solution gets rid of the slight film that remains otherwise.

I have found that wiping with a clean, dry rag usually takes off that film. If adding Calgon turns it into a one step process, so much the better.
