Looking good. I cant wait to see it in person!!


QUOTE=RMB;1821449]Attention all Va-ge-nah afficcionados!

New... Progress to report... All the skeletal frame work is welded but for two curving pieces that will attach on the sides to make the VVV actually round rather than rectangular. More natural... organic actually! The concept remains but the reality of construction has required some changes none of which will affect the final result I hope. In fact, it may be better,.

Adding a curve will cut the number of seats down to about 8 not counting the driver and pilot.

Those will get welded on Monday.

We need at least 16 cushions so please scrounge for us or for your derriere as you cruise the playa.

A big thank you to the camp members who have generously contributed time and resources so far.If you want to have a piece of the VVV, more lights - spots, floods, or outdoor light cord are all welcome. . If anyone wants to bring a gallonl on or so of bubble or fogger fluid,please let me know.

Ideas for the engine deck use are also welcome.

The tower you see is only at half height (13').It telescopes up another 5 ft if needed! We had to make it that way to get onto the ferries up here and under the overpasses..

The steel will be primed and covered with polywood for the seats and a deck over the engine compartment ( about 5 x 6') suitable for....?

More to come soon[/QUOTE]

I know it gets pretty cold at night. Can we put my propane fire pit on the deck or seating area?

About the "camp" fire on the engine deck - Great idea!

The Burning Man ideal hides a huge bureaucracy... we had a 15 page +/- form to fill in in applying for a DMV permit. Even at that, we only received conditional acceptance - Inspections are forthcoming!

In our application, we left the "Fire effects" sections blank not contemplating any... So, when we arrive and get inspected by the Hotties at DMV I will ask if we can have a fire on the engine deck - It will be their decision.

See you there!

Remind me who you are when you get there. I will set aside some open space for your games next to your Airstream. You'll probably wind up being one of the units that makes a border around our bar/art car/post cards/games area.

Shade structure fit cheek is complete. I can't get the final 3 legs in by myself but I'm feeling pretty good about it. Only concern is that the tarps aren't taunt. I can probably wrap the ball-bungies a time or two to pull it tighter.

I have something similar. On one side I substitute a long piece of rope for the bungee. Long enough to go loop all the way to the other side under the tarp and I do a truckers knot to sinch it up tight. This helps by keep the tarp tighter and providing a series of supports for the tarp to sit on. I use the cheap colorful stuff from Home Depot.

This year I may replace the heavy steel conduit with some salvaged aluminum. Just to lighten the load.

The tarp should be very taught or it will billow and flap, maybe rip loose and/or drive you crazy!
