I think that's good stuff.

I'm kinda used to having some punctuation to help me figure it out, though.
I'm one of the mean members of the board. The nicer ones will be chiming in soon with all sorts of encouragement.

English spelling, the "theatre" and so on, I'm more comfortable with.

Welcome! You're gonna love it. Please read the guides (survival, and beginner's guide) on the main site. I also suggest the civilized explorer burning man pages http://www.cieux.com/bm/bmtoc.html, and the alternative energy zone camping tips: http://ae-zone.org/bm-camping-tips/ Both were helpful to me my first year.

Hi all I was just wondering what would be the best form of shade structure for me to bring.
As I'm traveling from the uk it will probably be best for me to pick something up when I touch down state side.
As I'm traveling g Alone and have a rv what sort of thing would others sugest.
