Don't be afraid of the Blackrock. The dust is so fine that it will not damage any delicate finishes. In fact I could have filled an entire flash card with pictures of the Airstreams that I saw on the playa. All kinds... Heck, Burnstream court, a camp of Airstreamers, had a rally going with demonstrations and tours. I wanted to go to the polishing demo but couldn't make it. Saw a few 2000+ models out there.

Appreciate the encouragement. I think my memory is mainly of my nice Nikon digital camera that has never operated quite right since BM. I have a new camera, and I'm reserving the old one for things like BM. As if there is anything else like BM.

I took my new Canon G6 out there and it did great. Had the laptop out there to download pictures as well. Used a can of compressed air to blow everything out when we got back.
There are waterproof cases that would work well for keeping the dust out if you really needed.
I did post all of my pictures online. Lots of fire spinning stuff.

Burnstream Court

Hey Buttercup,

Looks like you had a good trip. Buttercup is a beauty!

I'm the founder of Burnstream Court. This was my fifth year making the trip to the playa from Chicago, and the fourth time I did it towing an Airstream.

I am sorry you didn't make it to our polishing demo. Did you get by to see the Court? We had a dozen Airstreams parked in a mandala formation. It was quite pretty. I'll be putting my photos soon and will post a link.

Are you planning to attend again next year? Maybe we can talk you into joining us. Info on joining our email list is at:
http://www.batmo.com/burnstream
Pics from previous years are here:

Cheers!

...Ray

Hey 'cup... Great site you've got! Thanks for posting this. Burning Man is one of the things I'd like to do "one of these days". Re: your fridge... if it works well on propane but poorly on electricity, you may be able to save yourself a bundle and just replace the heating element. They're relatively inexpensive compared to a new fridge!

Roger

Ray,

We were only able to drive by because we are volunteer staff at the event so we are running around quite a bit. But we did plan on going to the polishing demo. If not to learn how it is done, to meet some fellow AS'ers.
We did notice a lot of Airstreams and a Spartan or two. Our eyes were wide open to metal this year.

Roger,

Thanks for the compliment on the site. But one thing that people are not getting on the fridge issue... and I will expand on that here...

Momma wants a new one, period.

It doesn't matter what I do with the old one anymore. I will not be spending a lot of time on it because we only needed it to work for this first trip. We did plan on getting a new one from the start but it becomes an issue of when would be the most appropriate, dollar wise, etc...

But in the interest in documentation for the web, I will take pictures and document with facts, etc before I do replace, which I will also document.
