Tiki Fuckos

Things you'll need:

  • Food for a week (or however long you'll be there).
  • 2 gallons of water per day (you'll need containers).
  • Goggles. The dust can be killer.
  • Shelter of some sort. Tents are the easiest.
  • A sleeping bag or equivilent (normal blankets are not usually equivilent)
  • Something to wear in the hot weather or nothing to wear.
  • Clothes for the cold weather. Prepare for freezing tempuratures at night.
  • Some way to light yourself and bike at night from all sides. (glow sticks are easy)

    Things you may want:

  • A bike is HIGHLY recomended.
  • A lock or at least something to detur someone from taking your bike.
  • Alcohol of choice
  • Fun clothes for day or night. Things that allow you to jump, climb and play in that fit your style.
  • A water container to carry with you. Camel backs are popular, or a bottle on your bike.

  • Utensils and plate or bowl for when/if you're offered meals.
  • Some people like dust masks
