Rainbowmama wrote:So excited to finally get to a Burn! It's going to be our first year, we are camping with very seasoned burners, but would like to be self sufficient so I'm starting the learning and research early (since we have never ever camped). We are going with either a hexayurt or a 5m canvas bell tent like this
At least 2x the money, but 10x the utility of a hexayurt post burn, and since I'm desperately trying to avoid renting an rv @$3k, anything less is gravy. So my question is what do I need to cool this tent? Adequate sleep will be crucial to avoid crankiness, so I've got to keep hubby reasonably cool for sleep. I'm happy to build either cooler, box or bucket. How would I get the cool air into the tent from the bucket? Or from the unicooler or box? The windows are quite low. Will the vents in the top of the tent be sufficient? Thanks for helping a virgin get it right! We are in north San Diego. So we will test it out before heading to the playa.

At those dimensions you were at about 900cu.ft.
Too much for the bucket, especially without shade.

If I get the inner tent that divided it half, and positioned the cooler on that side, where the bed is, we should be ok with the bucket, which would allow me to duct it toward the mesh window right?? It's only 2ft high at the windows so the airflow has to be low. Can the box cooler be built low to the ground and be effective? I got the idea for the bell tent here on eplaya, where it gets some rave reviews, and according to those reviews (and many I their site) does beautifully in high wind. I admit to knowing absolutely nothing. I have so much to learn and an rv would be infinitely easier, but hubby hates them, and I've never done adventure the easy way, only the awesome way
