Burning Man coconut water Mountain Bike

     tips / PlantTrees’ MEDIUM list. 
TIPS for CAMPING : CHECK your OIL, Coolant, ATF before you DRIVE! Put your BM )'( ticket in your GLOVEBOX BEFORE you DEPART…! MAKE a SPARE KEY for you car today. HIDE somewhere under car.

Bring all your old bike INNER TUBES. they are HANDY for strapping things DOWN!
Bring all your old razors if you shave… save them up all year, as the playa dust will destroy the razor each use. So do not waste new razors out there.  

Free Mountain Spring Water (Chlorinated) at Donner Pass Rest Stop, Donner Chevron, BoomTown Chevron, BoomTown Cabella's Sports behind the Dog Wash Kennel… etc.
Bring EMPTY 1 and 5 Gallon Bottles. Save your Engine and Tranny going UPHILL over Mountain.

BRING CARDBOARD for DOORMATS y'all. you can burn them later if clean or compost if dirty. helps with rain and mud. you can shower over cardboard too. EVAPs better than the evap ponds which folk inevitably dump on playa come sunday / monday post burn DOH!

DARK sheets and / or TENT fly or Parachute etc. for your SHADE placed EAST for rising sun etc. Find East by NORTH STAR at NIGHT. Big Dipper acts as CLOCK to show 10pm 1am 4am etc. Sky gets light at 4:30am.

BIG HATS for SUN Chevy's Hat, Sombrero. MULTIPLE drink holders on your BIG TIRE cruiser or Mountain Bike to hold Many Coconut waters:

Other Burning Man Tips from Scott Munson

	1.	 "WATER for Burningman! from Scott Munson BurningMan at planttrees dot org Travel light uphill, then fill your 5 gallon and 1 gallon water bottles at DONNER REST STOP, 20 Miles West of the CA/NV border. Donner rest stop is just before Donner Lake, which is before Truckee. Donner Summit is right after Boreal Ridge going towards Reno on Highway 80. There are several campground type faucets that you can park right next to!  (PL 2012: Spigots were present but no water when I stopped)

	2.	CAR: For sure change your oil. Check your engine coolant. For sure Properly inflate your tires. Check your Automatic Transmission fluid (ATF) I travel with a quart of ATF and a quart of oil in easy reach in my car.

	3.	I always check my fluid levels (Oil/ATF/radiator) Before I go uphill towards Santa Cruz or Tahoe, or whenever I notice any loss of power."
     END )'()'()'( Burning Man events listings. Drink water. JUMP IN WATER to decompress: Recommend: Sierra Hot Springs! Lake Lahontan / Lake of the weeping mother / Fremont Lake or Pacific Ocean if Baker Beach is warm on your return.
In my 20 years of consecutive BurningMan attendance I learned that SOAKING in a HOT TUB or HOT SPRINGS or lake / river / Pacific Ocean prevents post burn depression. 
HOSE THAT PLAYA off your BIKE CHAIN and let sit in sun for day or two. THEN OIL THAT CHAIN when dry!
