The landing strip would be big fun.
(Who knows who or what may land there)
Maybe we'll be Airstreameri, Geologists, and Aliens.

We'll be there. I too am planning on (finally) having a tutu. I also have a bunch of wonderful lavender fur that matches my bike. We'll see what happens.

We'll probably be camping with Ranger Outpost Berlin again, if they'll have us. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Happy cargo, all!

Bm '13

Although I am still cleaning playa dust out of my Airstream, truck, and lungs I am getting excited about 2013. Originally I had planned to do BM just once as a "bucket list" item, but 2012 was such an amazing experience I might do it again next year.

I can't say I'm committed to this years event with my new yet to be built EB. But I'm subscribing to this '13 edition, for news.

Airstream Mutant Vehicle?

I'm amazed at the level of interest here! Doubt I personally can go again in 2013, but in future, after I win the lottery - Airstream themed mutant vehicle for the camp! Let the imagination go wild here, how about a 747 "jumbo jet" Airstream, two old gutted trailers (or better yet, an old trailer on a functioning AS motorhome) stacked on each other, with a circular staircase inside leading to the upper deck, which has extra large "Vistaview" openings cut out for full visibility as it cruises the Playa at night? Lit up with LEDs, full bar, music, chairs and sofas, the works.

Dare to dream. Lord only knows how I'd get it there. Playa DMV is one thing, the Nevada cops might have a problem.

P.S. Saw this beauty below in Kidsville in 2011, not mine. But it inspired me to get into Airstreaming!

That is so funny, the airstream with the blue tanks is my friends airstream. They are Lisa and George from Portland who brought their 2 daughters and will be there this year too

Is it time to go home yet? I'm so ready to get back. This was our first day out in the boonies but we ended up with an awesome neighborhood.

Note their hard tie down of their ZipDee awning, most important for the little afternoon playa zephyrs. Thanks to Mark and Straitstream's lead, I haven't had the ZipDee wrap around the roof yet. As the Admiral of Spanky's Wine Bar says, Ratchet Tie Down every post of any canopy. I didn't nail down the feet of our canopy thinking the tie down on each post was enough; I was watching the feet dance in the wind the second day, digging a 6' hole in the playa. Had to ratchet down the tie downs again.

Archie here. Won't see you until 2014 but I'll lurk on the thread to live vicariously. Winebuff, you'll love the Airstreameri!
