Thumbs up Brew Calc

Brew Calculator…
12 brews + 12 gifted brews = 24 + 25%(drought factor) = 30/day x 7 days = only 210 brews! This calc is for a light brew like PBR, but if you plan a microbrew with a heavy body at 6%+ alcohol content you can cut the amount significantly down, or not.
A good breakfast brew is micro but in the heat of the day out at the trash fence a stash of PBR’s go a long way!
Before you hit the playa at night some lime 'n salt and what ever puts a spark in your heels!
The above amounts take into consideration Happy Hour at Mark’s!

I meant to say 12 gifting brews not "12 gifted brews"!

The Burningman Project

I'm in the middle of a restoration on my safari and I plan on coming to the Burn with it. It will be bare-bones at best but I will have an insulated, air conditioned aluminum tent, with a refrigerator!

Here's some pics of my preparations for the Burn!

This is what I've been doing for the last week or so. Yesterday the last piece of flooring went down, and today when I got home from the default world I found a huge roll of Prodex insulation sitting in front of my gate! Just in time. Today I wiped down the walls in prep for the insulation going up.

I couldn't stand to see no posts coming up this close to the event. Lets get with the spirit! Everybody, bring clown suits and make-up!

VIKING, thanks for starting the "Crappy to Happy" contest!

You are definitely starting from almost scratch, but I'm actually trying to get the whole thing back together in time. Last week there was no inside skin on the curb side--this week it's looking like it might be possible to get on the road in a week or two. Crossed fingers here...

Zep and Viking - your projects follow the Evolution theme perfectly. Great jobs, can't wait to see them in person.

Nev Geo - loose screw?

Who's getting excited?

WoW! and I thought I had a lot to do!
This will be Kim (my wife) and I's 5th year. The 1st that we will not be staying in a tent. Last year we vowed never to return, the dust just got the better of us. Then last April we bought our 69 Overlander and towed it to Darkies, the Las Vegas regional, and had a ball.
So now the Bathroom is scattered all over our yard in various stages of refurbishment and time is running out. But the rear sag is fixed, the plumbing is solid and the linoleum for the floor should arrive today.
It will still be a bit rough but it will be there.

Getting Ready

I admire those willing to invest the time and pain to do the work themselves. The last time I did that was putting a Pergo floor in our old 22' 2002 International. That pretty much cured my desire to DIY. (Note to anyone considering such a task....There are very few straight lines in an airstream floor!) It got done and with a very professional appearance but I wore out a chop saw blade and broke a dozen or so scroll saw blades. Not to mention the wear and tear on the knees.

This trip we have added a solar panel and two new Lifeline batteries. The 28 is at the factory now having the solar controller switched out (replaced by the manufacturer) and two additional awnings put in place. That should help a little with the heat on the playa.

Looking forward to checking out everyones handiwork.

Corky and Claudia

Hi to all. I just joined the forum a couple days ago. My wife and I will ge going to Burning Man this year for the first time. I signed us up on with a YES RSVP on the ralley page. I hope that means we can join the group at BRC. We have reservations at Desert Rose for the night of the 30th and the night of the 8th. We should be easy to spot there - Toyota Tundra and 22' CCD, both with Alaska plates. We are driving down from Anchorage.
