It may be better to request a spot in the shade near the pool directly behind the restaurant.

They don't charge that much extra for the cabana boys.

We have a running bet on how high some of the mutant vehicles will get in the wind, their "ingineers" love to design such beautiful artsy sails. Best plan on anchoring your shade structures very well. Also small cars, small people, airplanes, Bambi's... I never ( or not more than once) leave my ZipDee out when I'm gone, Nevada wind will come along and take it. First thing I ever learned when I got to Nevada, never leave your truck door open or the wind will take it off. Buttercup has their shade structure pretty well ironed out, check out what they do. (Oh I've heard a rumor they are building a bar over there too..take a welcoming bottle, all your favorite bars love ya for maybe bringing more than you imbibe.)
Oh Kidsville, thats usually something like 4 or 5 oclock at B or something. We'll probably be somewhere around 3:30 and however close in we can get, not too far. Lots of kids stuff going on for kids at BM.

Well, yes.

Today we find out we need a rebuild on the tranny to the MH. If all goes well it'll be out of the shop in 10 days. And then to peel the skin back and find the gray water leak. I get to learn how to drill out rivets and hand pop them back in. Anyone got a shaver to shave down the rivets after install?

Thanks! Mitch and Wendy

Good luck with all that.
And if it's not ready by the end of the month...there's always duct tape!

Talking progress!

Here's the latest on the Burningman Project: We have insulation! Two layers of Prodex with a 1" airspace between. I also used the same material for making replacements for my screens so we can make it cozy inside and dark as night, if we want to. I ran my air conditioner while I was insulating and by the time I was done I was able to bring the temp down to 65 degrees inside, while it was about 90 outside.
I also insulated the inside of the metal roof vents and made insulating covers for them as well. I cut two layers of Prodex to the size of the vent frame and foil-taped them together, then I cut holes for the vent knobs to go through. All I have to do to put them up is pull the knobs off, put the insulation up against the vent, and push the knobs back on to hold them tight against the vent frames. It's amazing how much heat comes through these covers. Even with three layers of insulation they still get very hot. I burned my fingers just taking the knobs off of these.
I will be bringing some of this material to the burn if anyone's interested in checking it out.

Good Burn to you all,
Rich

For some reason that makes me think of "a padded room in paradise".
What kind of spacers do you use to hold the air space between layers? I bet concrete rebar bolsters would work, they come in strips up to maybe 8 feet long, in several heights. I hate to think of pulling the inner skin to apply this stuff, but looks like it will work. I measured 117F on the inside wall of my A/S a couple years ago at BM, and stupid me wouldn't fire up my noisy generator for the AC for the noise. You should see what the outside of a black truck measures, like 150 or more.

I install the first layer with double sided tape, against the outer skin, Then the second layer is taped to the front edges of the framing with mylar foil tape. Each layer is 1/4" thick so it leaves 1" of airspace between. I didn't need any spacers as the tape holds everything in place well.
And it will be a padded room in paradise in a few weeks!

Hi Michael,
I really am enjoying the Tee I got from you at the restoration rally. Thanks for putting out such cool stuff! I look forward to having a cool, refreshing beverage with you while we sail across the playa on the tuna boat.
Stay tuned...

Rich
