I do spend more time drooling over domes and buses though so I might be missin out on some good ones. All the yurt people swear by the yurts via insulated panel. I'm a tent camper or skoolie camper, wouldnt mind doing something different though. Anyone got any dox or pix of something that hold up against 70mph+ ?

Don't close up the ends unless you have a mighty swamp cooler to pump in. A campmate did that this year and made an astounding sauna by mistake.

Don't close the ends, and keep the tarp at least a foot off the ground on each side so there is good ventilation.

You said that you had not preformed a "test run" of the monkey hut before you got to the playa. Did you buy your PVC at home and travel with it, or did you buy it in Reno? I'm flying in, and therefore can't bring PVC pipe. I've got a sneaking suspicion that the PVC might sell out at the hardware stores in Reno, and I was wondering if anybody had any feedback on this issue.
