Burning Man 2011!

Wow...tickets for Burning Man go on sale next month...already!

Thought I'd toss out a thread so we can start gathering Burners and Birgins
and possible ideas for yet another Airstream Rally in the dust.
This year the date is August 29 - September 2, 2011.

Although it is holiday time and everyone is scampering including Perry and the Geologists.
(I mean really, who doesn't want rocks in their Christmas stockings?)

We are all in the midst of busy days ahead but now is the time to ask Santa for that
Utilikilt, headlamp, hydration pack, new bike, and all manner of sparkly blinky lighty things.

And as the new year approaches it is time to reflect...
Are we Airstreameri Theming again?
Shall we craft more signage/decor?
Construct more interactive structures?
Have another community event or two?
Park differently?
Have a central meeting area?

Sit on our lounge chairs with a frosty or warming seasonal beverage and ponder the meaning of it all?


What say you?

I'd say that's a rock hard analysis Bam Camper so dear, there'll be lots of geologists sharing the playa dust we cherish so much.
Maybe we'll find diamonds and glitter and silver and gold and frankincense and myrr in the our analyis of the dust so exotic and fluff.

a poet I'm not

I'm working on upgrading the Sovereign, finishing some of the cabinet doors and a new maple eyebrow locker. Maybe I'll even have time to get some new gaskets on the windows.

I liked the parking methodology from this year--early entries post at the corners and then ad-hoc it. The only improvement would have been a single center, rather than the two we wound up with. I don't know about anyone else, but I was convinced that parking east-west was the best. You folks who were parked north-south, eg, parallel to Baghdad, seemed to creat wind tunnels rather than wind breaks.

Are Argosy trailers welcomed at the Airstream camp or is it for Airstream trailers only?
Thanks,
Leopold

We even accepted a couple of SOBs in 2010, but they had to beg! On he other hand, you're part of the forums, so you can look forward to only a minimal amount of groveling.

An Argosy IS an Airstream through and through!

Ha! The Argosy would pass the village participation test, he could give demonstrations how the Argosy fends off the mid day sun.


Oh as I write, the weather out side is frightfull, the fire is sure delightful-As we've no better place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. And Merry Christmas to ya'all!

I'm looking at both used Airstream and Argosy trailers with the goal of being able to bring the trailer to Burning Man 2011. I have attended the last two burns with a Coleman tent trailer and I'm ready to move up to a hard-sided trailer. I didn't know if an Argosy is considered a "second class citizen" in Airstream circles.
Thanks,
Leo

Only a second class citizen is concidered as a second class citizen with respect to Airstreaming or Burning Man.

Of course not.

Everyone is welcome.
The more the merrier.

Cheers!
