I have seen videos of Burning Man and have heard from friends who go there frequently so I know what I am getting into. I dont take my AS to "concerts" we go to regional festivals to be a part of the show. For my part, I may be playing movies or trippy visuals and light shows at night and hosting artists by day.
These festivals have various themes, and cover a hundred acres or more. They are not Burning Man in style, but they are in heart.

I was batting around the idea of Burning Man for a change of pace and if I lived 2500 miles closer, I would probably be there now helping setup the event.
Justifying several weeks of travel and more than 5000 miles round trip and a grand for a gate fee makes this less likely.

I hear there are regional burning man events across the US, I doubt they are anywhere near as good as the original.
I have a place nearby with a few hundred acres of land setup for vehicle camping that I was thinking of investing in for some sort of event this summer.
I was considering making it a Airstream event, so maybe a AS event with a Burning Man theme for those who cant do the Full Monty in Nevada?

Mike (jester) and I are going to be camping with our previous camp again this year, but we're bound to still spend a bunch of time out in the 3:00 area with you Airstreameri folks; chatting, drinking, and having fun.

If there's something that we can bring out to the Playa from LA to help you out ... just let us know!

I really look forward to seeing you all again this year!

P.S.

To actually have something AS-related to talk about ... I finally got around to replacing my Argosy's 40-year-old front couch-bed with a custom frame that I built, so that I could have a decent mattress to sleep on.

I got a cheap Twin XL foam/latex mattress online during the Christmas sales, and then had a local mattress company just create a 10" extension piece for the front of the trailer from their spare off-cuts.

The guy only charged beer-money to make it, and the result is perfect for sleeping, and barely detectable once the mattress pad is in place.

Thanks!

Rather over-engineered and bit heavy, but solid-as-a-rock and there's no creaking.

Using two scissor-jacks to stabilize the overhang was the simplest solution that I could think of to stop the whole thing from tilting when you sit in the edge of the bed.

Not just the burnt man ... it's already been tested and approved for double-occupancy.

Yep. 2018 is here and another Burn slowly approaches.
Hope everyone’s holiday season delivered everything wished for.
And yes it is time to get the 2018 Playa Planning going.
Hard to believe it started in 2007 when I accidentally camped next to Nevada Geo at Burnstream Court.
Off we go again!

*This year's event is: August 26 - September 3.
*Location: Beautiful Black Rock Desert, Nevada. (The middle of nowhere)
*Theme: I, Robot

Every year our group of Airstreameri (as we are called) meet on the Playa and create a theme camp around our Airstreams. We offer up a variety of things to the Burning Man Community.

Anyone is welcome to join us and participation in the camp is a must.
There are no "camp fees" but each individual is required to buy their own ticket and vehicle pass. Tickets are not yet on sale but visit burningman.org for all the latest info. Tickets do sell out quickly so read all the info and get ready to jump on line when they become available. It’s happening soon.

The Burning Man Event is not for everyone. It's wildly creative and crazy on a 24 hour clock. If you have not attended before, read everything on the Burning Man site about the event and especially the preparation information. It is a boondocking, Leave No Trace event and you must pack in and pack out everything you need. You may also want to sign up for the Burning Man newsletter, the Jackrabbit Speaks, (JRS) to get current updates and info.

The weather is often rough and always unpredictable. It can be blistering hot, freezing cold, rainy and muddy and usually windy. Your Airstream will be full of soft, talc like dust. It doesn't scratch or damage but it does creep in no matter what you do. And never completely leaves.

But then there are also those perfect days. And beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Just be prepared.

If you would like to join us, please do. Introduce yourself here and jump on this thread to help with the planning. We like to have a rough idea how many are attending and what they will be camping in so we can very loosely lay out our camp. All are welcome.

We offer a bar for our camp and the community at large (that anyone can host any time of the day with whatever they would like to share), a shade structure "post office" for making post cards (that we stamp and mail for people), the amazing (VVV) volcano art car will be back, there will be a potluck (or several), a variety of games, and of course whatever else you would like to contribute would be great. Last year’s Lemonade Stand was fantastic. New ideas/suggestions/offerings are always welcome. Let us know here what you'd like to do. The theme this year offers endless possibilities. Can't wait to see what shows up! The playa is a land of continual surprises.

Looking forward to another amazing year.
Let the planning begin!
Cheers,
Laurel (aka Bam)
Hey all!
Connie and Kim (aka Squeeze and Twig) would love to join ya’ll again this year. We’ll come in the 16’ Bambi Sport equipped with the shot ski lemonade stand! Already looking forward to it!

OB1 here!. Jilly Bean and I have been travelling extensively this winter: Australia & New Zealand for about 2 months. Rented a camper van in Australia and toured the east coast from Sydney to Melbourne with side trips to Canberra and into the mountains. Many other adventures too

We are back now and making plans for Burning Man. Can't wait to see everyone again. Dean is planning to come and camp in the yurt again. Huggy bear won't be with us this year though - too much going on in the default world.

First time burning!

Hey guys this will be my first time this year.

I've no camp to join sounds like you guys know what you're doing!!

I'm building an grey water evaporator should average about 40 gallons a day on 2.5 amps given the average temp/humidity. I purchases enough parts for two systems.

I'm bringing 275g of water in a tote.

I'm also a recreational pilot so I'm happy to volunteer at the airport. Is a member here involved with them?

Last question is there any captain for the theme camp to organize us? How many go? Should we divide up responsibilities? For example there's no reason I can't scale up the grey water evaporator.
