Yes, it's that time of year again. Time to get ready for the annual series of Burning Festivals culminating with the ultimate non-conformist gathering that is BURNING MAN!! While Doctor Tape has never experienced any of these I live vicariously through the tales told by my more adventurous and Avant-Garde acquaintances. They make it sound very inviting. For more information on "What is Burning Man?" check out the link

I am actually interested in letting all of you Burning Fanatics know that Doctor Tape has your tape for HEXAYURT construction. Don't know what a HEXAYURT is? It is a durable, temporary shelter invented by Vinay Gupta as a means of housing victims of war and natural disaster. It's also quickly becoming the housing method of choice for those attending the Burning Festivals. You can build it with a few sheets of plywood and some tape. Just type Hexayurt Project into Google or the search engine of your choice and you can get all of the details.

The tape used for building a HEXAYURT is a very strong tape for holding it together. If you don't use the special, super strong HEXAYURT tape it won't hold together. I am proud to say that I am the supplier of this tape to most of the people building HEXAYURTS at these festivals. If you are going to be building a HEXAYURT and you need the tape just go to and then give us a call. I suggest that you try to get a bunch of people together and combine your orders into a single larger order. That way you get the quantity discount and you can save big on shipping. We take Visa or Master Card (No Amex or PayPal, sorry).

If any of you has a tale about Burning Man or the other Burning festivals that you would like to share please e-mail us at I will post them on a future blog.

Happy Taping!
