Hi CrispyDave! Fun nick. Welcome to the board.

Have you read the Survival Guide?

. . . If your car is on the small side, don't forget to calculate the room that water for two people will take up. :)

I have spent the last 3 months reading the Survival guide while at work... heheh

And then went onto the threads to look for answers that came up from reading the survival guide. I still have questions but I will re-read the survival guide first before posting them.

I may be a Burgin but I will be a well read Burgin....

Yep on the water, I think I have that covered. 5ea 5gal jugs should do it plus the Gartoraid. for me... I will put fresh water in the cars radiator just in case.... Actually it is a Ford Explorer so I am good...

Welcome.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Personally, I believe 25 gallons for a single person is more than necessary. In our camp we loosing follow the equation 1 gallon/person/day + 1 gallon/day for cooking and cleaning + (1)7gallon water jug spare.
So basically its one of these 7 gallon deals per person, plus 1 for cleaning, and 1 for spare. Though, we also keep some of those 3 liter Arrow head jugs in each tent for those sleepy time "I'm thirsty but I don't wanna get out of bed" drinks.
For one person, I bet you would be OK with just 2 of the 7 gallon aquatainers. Plus the valve flips around and they stack very nicely and are sturdy.

Yeah...you don't have to be nutso about the water...don't forget you'll be getting water from other sources such as juices, electrolyte replacement drinks, coffee/tea, BEER (and don't anyone give me any crap about beer making you pee more...that's what it's supposed to do!)
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.

Aw! That is the key point that I was missing.

What sort of shower contraption do you plan to bring and much water does it use on average?
If you are gifting showers, then a spare 11 gallons might not be enough.

Also keep in mind that if you have a seperate ice chest for beer/soda, as the ice melts it's still (by playa standards at least) comparatively clean. It can easily be recycled (5 pounds of ice = 1 gallon of water according to Google) into shower water. If you're like most of us you will run through 2 to 3 bags of ice per day. That's more than enough for a nice shower.

I have 2 3gl shower bags and a 2gl pump mister. I plan on freezing 1gl bottles of water for ice use so I can recycle them for drinking and showers, cleaning.ect.

I built a 6'sq 2x4 evap pool from a friends stash of burn goodies.

Im not coming in blind, I live in Santa Clara and have 20+ friends who have years of experience on the playa, Only 1 got a tix this year.

They have been very helpful and laughing at/with me as well as I get ready for my own journey...

I will be the dusty guy with a black shower bag and boots, come by and see me....
