Dadstoy - where are you camping this year? We're bringing our 1988 290LE to the playa for the first time this year.

BTW - this was one of my previous BM Airstream vehicles

I was thinking we could all meet up at say- Baker Beach some time before BM for a round up. I think we have at least 6 Classics in the Bay Area that head to the burn. We could each do a walk through and show what we have done, and ask the group questions about issues we may have. Some time before the fog rolls in would be cool for a group photo food and drinks.

I have been back and forth about bringing our 345 back to Burning Man. We are considering trading down for a smaller rig. If you run into anyone who is interested in a Classic 345, tell them to give me a holler. They might convince me and it's not too late for BM 2014.

I'm using a curtain as well. I would like to install new accordion doors in the future.

I've seen pics of the Love Sub! Very cool that it was yours!

We camp around 4:30 and J. We are usually the first on the block. We've enjoyed it since it is just far enough back to have some peace and quiet. I would love to see your 290.

This is my most favorite time of the year to spend in Northern California. Everything is green and temps in the 80's. Another month and I'm sure the temps will be over 100!

But it kept the ice cream frozen and is doing a quick cool on your beer so it is a win win

The ice cream did melt and refreeze a bit but tasted ok. I did get my beer chilled though!

Actually you are lucky, if the door was closed you might have exploded the beer and you would have lost it's fizz.

Just put the beer in yesterday when I arrived for a quick chill down!

I pulled the door panels off today so that I can paint them and replace the window shade. The top panel came out very easy but the bottom panel was a bit of a pain. Hopefully I won't regret pulling the panels off!

Dean, I've pulled the interior door panels from two doors but so far have not reached the point where I am ready to re-install them. On one of the doors the panels came off easily, on the other one it was a real bear getting it off. I may have even creased one of the panels in the removal process.

Don't forget to put the insulation back in

Brad

Think I will wait to see how re-installation goes before I do mine to replace the shade.
