2004 Report?

I'm sure you are still sleeping it off if you went to Burning Man. Anybody do enough goofy substances to see Wally Gyam? Please provide an Airstream-licious report from this very alt-festival... !

Then maybe it is getting a little déclassé..... "Record Crowds for Burning Man Festival." (Sorry to future readers. CNN links don't last forever. That is why our forum members will give us a super first-hand report with pictures of their Airstreams!!)

I went, I saw and returned in almost one piece.

I've been going since 1997 and this was my 7th burn.

I would highly recommend it, but it really isn't an event for everyone. I wouldn't bring my daughter, my Mom or my dog but I keep trying to get my Dad to go.

For the past 4 years I have been going with a group of folks and renting an RV out of San Fransisco. This year I'm getting it together and I'm going to have my AS ready. I am actually trying to redo my airstream to be as playa friendly as possible.

I'd love any advice from any Burning Airstreamers!

wELCOME bURNbOUND --- i*TS ONLY APPROPRIATE IF i AM BEYOND MYSELF WHEN DISCUSSING bURNING mAN. fROM nEW yORK NO LESS -- i'M iMPRESSED!!

Okay, I've never been there -- just trying to prompt some past posts about the event in these forums (try the search function, start with the fewest key words possible; eg, burning + man).

His photo album is too big for me to go through for you but one fellow has done a massive restoration and who has posted Burning Man pics is William Henshall.

If the number of rope lights above the rear window follow the pattern of segments, then its older than a '64. Also the Airstream name plate is below the window instead of above, also an indicator age. I'd say a '58 or '59 Traveler. Just a guess though.

That's not rope light on that airstream. . .

It's called El Wire (more infor here coolneon.com). BUT. . . what is really amazing about that airstream is that the owner converted it so it is no longer a trailer. It is motorized. No need for towing. You pilot it from a seat at the helm.

This thing was wonderful. Amazing. Loved it.
