The vinyl is about the same waight as grey tarp but much stronger,and the hh-66 vinyl glue isnt coming apart so i dont have to sew it. I tested it on a piece and cant pull it apart. Good to 170 degrees. $20 for billboard vinyl, $15 for glue, mule tape was free, gotta get zippers, but ive not spent $50 yet........FIGJAM?...........
I believe you can buy bikes from the web page listed below. It is pretty cool. They have a 320 acre wildlife conservation ranch that is 12 miles outside of the bm gate. They sell all kinds of BM things beforehand, including bikes. You can go there and spend the night beofre the gates open and use the ranch as a Pre-landing so you can get in at dawn. She charges $25 for rv's and tents which is reasonable considering she is VERY close to the gate and the money goes to the wildlife conservation project

Like 20 sq feet per person.
Is a 24x24 footprint for 2 people to much???

A: Use frozen water bottles instead of ice! I usually do a bunch of 1 or 1.5 liter bottles, that I have been saving over the year and refill. You need to start freezing them well in advance, and possibly borrow freezer space from friends/family.
brushfire on the playa wrote:Another good tip I've heard is bringing a whole bunch a ziploc bags so that when you're there and you guy ice, you can put the cubes into several ziploc bags and disperse them amongst the food. Then, when they're melted, you've got clean water you can drink (or pour over your head - another good use for cold water on the playa). I thought this was a good addition to the frozen water bottles because it's a way to get ice cold water while already on the playa, after the bottles brought from home have melted early on in the week.
