So.. hi again.
I am posting this as a service to all of those people out there who wonder if they are bringing "too much"... have I brought too much? that is up for you to decide..
some of you out there may be new to burning man and are unsure what to bring..
This is what I bring.. I have been to the playa bunches of times and aside from a few years bringing too many clothes I use all of the stuff I bring...the list has been honed down over the years and at this point this seems to be a sort of minimum for me..When I am on the playa I do more work type stuff than costumey dancy type of stuff, that might change what some people bring..
So here it is.. when its all sealed up its 2 bags, one 40 pounds one 25 pounds.. youve got a ticket to give you size reference!
This bag qualifies for a 'carryon' size for an airplane
tent, tent poles, sleeping bag, blanket, sleeping pad, rug, melodica, towel, stakes, light stand/tripod, extra shoes, solarpowered drink bottle, cooler filled with burner stuff
all the stuff from the cooler: bag of toiletries(wet wipes, earplugs, lotion, sunblock..etc), bag of electronics (am/fm radio, set of headphones, alarm clock, phone charger.etc), batteries, umbrella, camp stove, fuel and pan, cutlery, dinnerplate, two bowls, 3 kinds of tape, superglue, floral wire, extra carabiners, two headlamps, work gloves, 2 head coverings, bandana for dust, water spray bottle, multitool, 3 water containers, goggles, notebook.. small fold up backpack
cameras, notepad, flash, 24 rolls of film, charger, extra batteries and flash extension cord, body cap.
and for the best part, when you get to see my underpants.. I bring two hoodies, 2 thick pairs of pants, 10+ socks, 3 longsleeve shirts, one tshirt.. 6 boxers.. 2 'pajama' pants..
the key to all of this is: bring lotsa socks and a big bottle of lotion.
well yeah there ya go ive exposed my huge amounts of stuff i bring.....
