I use the blue masking tape to seal windows and keep dust out.
And I cover the upholstery with washable blankets.

Thumbs up Heading out

Rich, we have a bottle of silver face paint, I'll pack it (assuming I can find it)

Were heading out this morning. A stop at the mothership for some parts, north to the Metro-Detroit Rally for a night, cross the bridge and take a left at the UP, MI. 1600 miles later, a few days of hiking at Glacier NP, then off to Fernley, we should be at the 'Rose some time Saturday. Lookin forward to seeing all ya'all. Safe travels and keep the shiny side up.

and cover Black Rock playa dust, regional mineral resources, and historical
geology of the area. Or they may have other unrelated topics of extreamly
interesting archeology trips or extremely boring postulating theorium of
lesser Great Basin Extensional Strain and Thrust Faulting Theoriums. Probably
not, Rum application recommended to shut up the theoriumists.
20) Airstream side: Talks may include discussion of polishing aluminum, care
and feeding of Airstream trailers, proper care and feeding of aluminitus
sufferers. Rum application recommended. WBCCI discussions welcome but taken
under advisement, Airstream Airforum members on playa required to visit.

honeywagon truck.
24) Number of camp mates: Approx __8 geologist types, Approx _15 Airstreamer

I'm on the road! Stopped now at an Airstream rally with the Oregon Unit (FUN folk), then to the Bay Area, Reno, then on to BRC. See you there. I'm loaded with water, powdered drinks, table & chairs, some art supplies, and baked goods; hitting the liquor store in Nevada. Special requests welcome.

Wow, it looks like the camp is going to great this year. Based the the number of replies, and if everyone shows up that says they are, my best guess is that we will have roughly 12 Airstreams + 1 Airstream in disguise by the first day, along with miscellaneous shade structures and a couple of art cars. I have toyed with several different arrangements that would allow for later arrivals, early departures, honey wagon access, etc. Some placement will depend on if we have two street frontages or just one. Depending on location, someone may have to roll up their awning to let an Airstream arrive or depart. These are just rough ideas, anyone and everyone's thoughts are welcomed.

A outside the box idea would be that if we are located on the outside part of Baghdad, there is not a theme camp located on the adjacent real estate, which means it is open to anyone. We could "annex" some additional real estate if we felt it was needed.

Good work. I don't mind being packed in. I'm not planning on using the honey bucket truck, but I am planning on leaving a day or two early. The bad news is, I'm dragging along another SOB, which won't arrive until Thursday (it's a long drag line).

Hi Julie and welcome. If you haven't been before, read the Survival Guide and prepare for extreme heat, cold evenings, and very high winds. Everything must be secured well or it will be blown down/away. Bring plenty of water (none is available there) and a way to pack out all your own trash. Costumes are fun but optional depending on what you feel like doing. Bring everything you need for a week as there is no way to get what you forgot other than helpful neighbors (which there will be plenty of). Feel free to ask any questions. It's a welcoming and casual group.

Have a safe trip and we'll see you on the playa!

Laurel (aka Bam)

I just made a reservation at the Desert Rose. The person I talked to was not aware of a group of Airstreamers coming in before Burning man. Sounds like we need to make individual reservations.Chollabill
