Thanks for pitching in Allen, the subatomic accelerator will be a great help!

I'll be sure to bring the flux capacitors!

Ok. I think we're ready for "Burning Man"! Where do I put my X? Can I bring my Lawrence Welk records?

VW size speakers...

So we drive into Black Rock city very very early in the morning last year and there is this really BIG empty space, a couple hundred feet, in an otherwise crowded part of the City. Wow, must be good karma. We set up the trailers, put Frank Sinatra on the JBLs, put up the canopy and sit down to breakfast under an azure sky - when BLAM! PCH PCH PCH PCH an alien life form removes all the paint on the left side of the car with ultra low frequency sound waves. Holy catfish batman! We have just entered some sort of experimental sound wave test chamber, and our camp is apparently the "control" group. We try to put in earplugs, but its too late, the PCH PCH PCH PCH has us puckered so bad they won't fit. By the 3rd day we were completely under their control - all we could do was smile and dance dance dance.

Lawrence Welk was the total man. We all didn't see it then, but he was the man. That guy and all those people on the show would melt right into the Burn.

Last year Allen and I fell into a cleverly baited techno trap last year, right next to DJ Dan. It was good music though - boom boom boom boom.. I have a 300W PA system to add to the mix.

Craig & Mary,

Do they call it Walla Walla because of the echo, a stutter or "so nice, you do it twice"?

Tim

Im glad you asked.
Walla Walla is an indian word for "many waters". We have the Snake, Columbia, and Walla Walla rivers here. Its like me and you saying lake-lake when we mean the ocean - indians were pretty cool that way.

The Walla, W-squared - it is the center of everything cool.
There are over 100 wineries, exceptional restaurants, and good people. We can get across ...you know ALL the way across to the OTHER side of town in a couple of minutes depending on if that one light is red or not.

CNN/Money Magazine ranked it the best place to retire - they have a video on it too. Retirement Living - Best Places to Retire 2006 from Money Magazine

Be sure and stop in and see Jim over at HOT POOP - Walla Walla only Bing Bang Stereo Shop! Hot Poop, Walla Walla Bing Bang

We have 3 hospitals, 2 universities and one community college - with the nearest big towns are Boise, Portland, Seattle or Spokane depending on the direction your compass is pointing. We have great outdoor activities, and a impressive little community. We have a huge prison too.

Lets see.
Brights Candies - I stop in for the candy - love it. They know me there - like anywhere in the Walla: Home

It's Wednesday, so its spaghetti night over at Merchants! YEAH... Merchants Delicatessen: Coffee, Tea, Cheese & Wine, then over to the Vintage for Wednesday Local Wine tasting!

Tomorrow is Thursday, so dollar tacos over at the Stone Hut.
Friday - its Techno over at 26 Brix

Hey - we got a SUSHI restaurant now!!! YEAH...no more Safeway california rolls!!!!

The Ballon Stampede is our answer to a Burn, and the summer is filled with activities. I was thinking about organizing a rally around our Spring Wine Release actually.

Are we moving Black Rock City to Walla Walla? Will the locals like it when "brando" shows up on his hog? Back to the desert and the playa, you knuckleheads.

Burning Man Theme = "The American Dream"

I am sure I am not the only one to notice that we, yes we, fellow Airstreamers, are living the American dream. It is us. With our perfect monohull aircraft hull trailers, bright aluminum symbols of american success, technology, and beautiful recreational affluence. I think that it would be minimal effort therefore for us to support the 2008 burning man "American Dream" theme with just a bit of advertising of our orca pod of trailers in the midst of Black Rock City. Many burners will be struggling with the desert while we, the priviliged few, are enjoying the comforts and style of these incredible machines. In an effort in be participative with the rest of the burning man campers I propose we hang up some car lot type flags and a couple signs with something to the effect of " Welcome to our trailers court - roadworthy symbols of why America is a great place to live." Many of our trailers are 30, 40, and 50 or more years old - a testament to American Quality and the American worker. Come on in and have a drink with us and lets talk trailers and the American Dream...

What do you all think of this concept? Its an easy route to BM theme participation on a camp level. Allen

Allen (you don't have enough "A's"), excellent! Do you write for a living? Or do you sell stuff?

But, to the point, I am not one to hide the fact that I LOVE the little silver supositories. They are great symbols of independence, classic Americana, and maybe a high percentage of "interesting" people. Not to mention craftsmen who can't put down their tools.

I like the idea of an open house (in the morning or late evening so the doors aren't open during the afternoon "visitation"). How much do these signs cost?

Whatcha got?

Okay...last weekend Michael and I bonded over terrorizing some coyotes late at night in the desert with a kazoo fest. Somehow I said I would come up with a list of who's planning to actually show up at BM and what they will be driving/bringing/towing/packing so some space planning can take place.

So here we go. Listed so far we have:

* 1knitwit
* AirstreamGypsy
* AllenPom
* ArtStream
* BamCamper, 16 ft. AS & attached Jeep, arriving Monday-Monday
* Charlyf
* ChopperPilot
* DandB^2
* Don Cook
* drsbeddor
* jyobp
* markparker22
* Phil Gobie
* silverbear
* Zenflyr
* Zeppelinium

Anyone else??
Please copy and add your particulars...
Cheers,
Bam
