Take a bottle of olive oil, mix a tablespoon of orange oil (to cut the dust), a quarter-cup of melted cocoa butter and coconut oil and mix 'em up. In the evening before you hit the sack, pour out a silver dollar-sized drop into your hand and slather it all over yourself; wait a minute or two and scrape it off with a blunt knife, like a table knife.
I could go into it more, but since you're in Vancouver WA, you should know the Portland Burners are getting together a Burning Man 101 event in July. Basically it's a day-long event where you can ask questions, get hints, tips 'n tricks, scale the learning curve and get your Burn on. Stay tuned, more info as things develop.

Regarding photos - No I did not mean selling them, I mean putting them into a portolio, physical and an internet one, strickly for display.
I wont care much for not being able to straighten my hair the whole time im there,

Heh, well good at first I was worried no pictures were allowed at the event other than media/press. But I don't even know if theyre allowed at the event? I guess the actual main concern is not to document "bad behaviour" that might incriminate someone. But knowing that I shouldnt have a problem with just using the photos for my portfolio puts me at ease because my camera is always on me, can't go anywhere without it.

You might cringe at that but the way I see it, it is usually cheaper for me to replace whatever junk they got from my car than to replace the windows (lessoned learned the hard way when someone stole my $50 satellite radio and broke the $300 window to get to it.. not at BM btw).
Wow, I could never leave my car unlocked, someone too broke my window with a rock, but did not steal anyting.. Kind of pointless but I Guess it could have turned out way worse. People are so dumb sometimes, I could never damage someone elses property, if its not mine i dont touch it. Period.

You might want to re-think the bringing your car alone. Maybe rent a pick-up, or have somebody else that is coming with you bring another car.
Bounce530 wrote:sounds good! I'm the type that over prepares for everything. I may have been out of line stating how much to bring, since I myself am a "Burning-Virgin" I read in one of the many guides that 5 gallons/day/person is how much you should bring without fear of running out.
