I can bring something. Its not sound busting like you said but it is louder than a boom box.

Just a simple boom box/stereo , for l riders' entertainment only not a block/ear busting volume, playing perhaps 60s music?

We will have 12v and 110 v power on the vehicle.

Thanks!

Any other information that we need to supply? Do we need to register as part of the camp to get a spot close? Thanks, Britton

Another BRC Citizen, In An Argosy Airstream

Burner Friends,

I'll be doing SugarBitch Camp (for diabetics and low-carb enthusiasts) in the Poly Paradise Village at 3:30 and E. Frozen Strawberries and Cream at 1700 after the PolyParadise Human Carcass Wash.

I have a '73 Argosy, which my partner and I are restoring, named Gus. I'll be solo as my partner teaches. I'm also a Ranger (Chestnut) and will be in and out of camp as I do shifts. Stop by and say hi!

ToMmY, Ranger Chestnut, WU9I

Burning Man Preparation

Preparing for my 17th Burning Man, but 1st with our new Airstream (yeah!). Any recommendations on how to prepare an Airstream for the playa?

Long Time Burner

This will be my 12th consecutive year attending the greatest show on earth! Altho I'm not an Airstream owner, I do own a popular brand of TT. It has attended 3 Burns. I don't go crazy trying to keep dust out...it cleans up easy enough when I get home with a mild vinegar/water solution. I do try to protect the fridge components by taping furnace filter segments over the vents with blue painter's tape (don't use duct tape!). I don't even bother with a generator to run the AC. During the hot part of the day, I sit down with campmates under a shade structure with a cold drink and relax. I run two 6V golf cart batteries, but I'm a power miser...interior lights are AAA-battery powered, and I only use the water pump when needed...everything else is pretty much propane powered. If you need your bike repaired come to see me at Elliot's Bicycle Service and Piano Bar in the 4:30 Plaza. Cheers, Dragon Pilot

Fit Reflectix insulation over all the windows. I use bits of Velcro so that I can remove a section or two if I want to open windows for cross ventilation. Make sure you have enough gas to get you back to the nearest gas station along your route to/from the event. I carry 5 gallons in a jerry can. Have ice coolers available for keeping drinks cold saving fridge space for other perishables. If your fridge breaks down, you'll have a backup cooler. Blue tape all the weep holes...playa dust will blow up into them. Don't go crazy trying to keep dust out. I wear my boots/shoes inside, but usually take them off if I'm going to be walking around inside a lot. I added carpet remnants to the floors to absorb errant dust, remove and shake/vacuum them at home. Moist baby wipes are your friend for quick clean ups!

The theme camps take up most of the available camping space nearer to the Esplanade, the main entertainment area. I avoid camping in that area simply because it's too noisy and crowded. I prefer the outer ring roads. You don't need to be with a theme camp, but joining the Airstream group would be a lot of fun and provide lots of like-minded support. A bicycle will get you anywhere you want to go on the playa. You won't miss any of the action camping farther out. Fell free to PM me if you have any questions.

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
