Half the folks there are in some kind of RV or other. Generators do fine...either built in or portable. That said, post-Burn maintenance is essential! The playa is a harsh mistress...the dust is like talcum powder...gets everywhere, EVERYWHERE! We have learned to become one with the dust.

Going our our 2nd big burn this year, almost have the dust out of the trailer from last year! We camped with Poly Paradise @ 7:15 and Elektro last year and will do so again this year. Where are you guys camping? I would like to come by and see some AS's, no pun intended. Hope you all get tickts and that we get to see some of you there Drop by our camp and ask for CanyonMan or Starfish. The drinks will be on us.

Check out Rover.com and you can find a sitter in the Reno area. That's where my rescue will be. I've used the service 6-8 times in SF and it's been great.

You're most welcome. I do find your comment about "odd looking people" concerning. Most people at BM are the most normal, sane and reserved individuals on the planet. Oh wait, just kidding. Hope you get to come and enjoy the Burn. We did 4 burns last year and are planning the same, or more this year.

Sad to leave my Earl behind and not sure I can since her sitters live in Florida but will now look for a way to make this work. Certainly makes sense to leave the pups at home.
Yes, I use the generator, but try to do it sparingly. It was so loud the first year that my camp had to give me a "talking to" about it. I rarely use the air conditioning during the day - I'm from the south & pretty heat tolerant so I just get some shade and drink plenty of water and I am usually just fine. I have added a resonator (muffler) to its exhaust pipe since then and that has made a lot of difference. I change all the filters right after getting out of black rock city (cabin filter and engine air filter). The generator has a little washable filter that I clean. You could change the generator oil post-burn if you are finicky, but I haven't made it a rule to do that.

My 2013 only has driver and passenger window motors, nothing back in the living space. I have had no problem with those up front window motors or with the macerator pump. I usually only use the macerator pump about once during the burn, and I have picked non-dusty days to do so.

The precautions that I do take are to add reflective material to the windows to cut down on heat gain, and I use gaffer's tape to put air conditioning filter material over the windows on the inside of the van to allow for ventilation with less dust coming in. Gaffer's tape is the greatest - bring lots! I have extra reflective material that I could share for the outside of the van.

The other thing that I do is to bring lots of extra water, over and above what will fit in the fresh water holding tank. I am often bringing in extra water for friends though. You can't have too much water.

Sounds like that generator is of the open frame type that contractors use. My Champion inverter, 2800W continuous, is really quiet and runs my AC and charges the batteries with no problem. I had no complaints at the burn last year. Check them out, you will be surprised.

Have a solution! Flying my dog sitter out to Reno so she and Earl can spend quality time in Tahoe. Clearly I’ve become a crazy dog lady .. but after the Burn, I’m headed further west & south to Oceanside. No way I can leave Earl in FL.

Burning Man 2019! Planning thread begins again...

Last serious vacation DW and I went in was to Disneyworld for a week.

Dogsitting bill where we parked then cost more by far than our actual vacation...and we though it was well worth it.

They are as ‘furkids’ and part of our family...

We are new at this too, just a couple crazy ole ladies. Just bought a 75 Argosy MH having a blast planning the total renovation and burning up Amazon. Can’t wait to get started. This Burning Man sounds like fun, we live in a dust bowl all fall here in the Midwest, no problem there, if we can get tickets count us in.
