It definitely takes my mind off the dust in my lungs....but I prefer to do that back at my camp. It's part of our drinking game. Take a shot..squirt lemon in each eye.

Maple syrup and Mountain Dew, nothing else. Since the playa provides and is magic, you'll be fine.

This is the Internet, so you know it's true. It's not fake like television.

Are there shade structures for rent at the used bicycle places in and near Reno?

Wait, this is a brand new idea.

How about: Would an EZ up shade canopy from Walmart be ok?

Here is the reply that you're not going to read about the shade structures and shit from Walmart.

1. Don't shop at Walmart, it has a greater cost and they only sell seriously cheap and substandard things, it's a waste of money.
2. Some EZ-Up shades may work if you tie it down properly with two guy lines in each corner near the fabric and stake the bottoms down with 10" spikes through the flanges. It's still a roll of the dice that the canopy won't blow apart or that you're too much of a slob/idiot/lazy to rig it properly and check it periodically.


Poor rigging and disorganization really piss me off

Yes, you'll be fine. Ignore the conditions, buy cheap shit at Walmart. It's OK, you don't need to set up your camp properly or check your rigging. A 60 MPH wind gust haboob is really no big deal, wind isn't that strong. Don't spend money on a canopy, water, means to have water with you or decent shoes, spend it all on weed and beer.

Even better, stop at Walmart in Reno or the Empire store and get everything you need. Yea, they have tickets there also.

No no
It's the ten dollar knockoff of the cheapo EZ up.

Duh, why spend $200 on a shade?

Because the playa is like camping in the suburban back yard overnight.

Burning Man is too corporate and sold out, I'm going to [corporate, for-profit, leave-a-lot-of-trace event] instead.

They have a rights-grap ban on photography and it is a media black hole. BRC is hostile to the press, because they didn't give me a press pass to get in free. They don't realize my blog/Tumblr and Twitter feed are going to help Burning Man get back to it's roots.
