It doesn't shine now! LOL.

The top including the front cap had been painted aluminum color years ago. I couldn't tell for a long time that it was painted until about two years ago when it peeled like a bad sunburn!

Reminds me of the VW bug that my boss painted about 10 years ago. His wife picked the color and he swears it was "red". I told him it looked more like Passionate Pink". Needless to say I didn't get much of a raise that year

I'm heading up north to motorhome on Monday to begin the big "clean". I will probably look at it on Tuesday.

The Road to Burning Man

I've put up a short video of the road to Burning Man. The entire trip from Redding California to the Black Rock Desert of Nevada was on two lane highways. Redding to Alturas is mostly mountain type driving. From Cedarville just east of Alturas to Burning Man is mostly flat desert terrain. All roads were in good shape. It was a beautiful, but long drive.

Have fun viewing the video!

Great video! Ditto on the final blast through the dust storm. Loved the sense of mayhem. Very "Road Warrior-ish". Reminds me of the morning commute into Boston. Just a bit disappointed though that you were letting so many lesser vehicles get past you.

Considering everything you packed, did you forget to bring your crossbow?

Burning Man Satellite Photos

These satellite photos give a feel for space required to create a city of 50,000 campers and RV'ers! Quite impressive! See the yellow highlight for where we parked our MH.
