BURNINGMAN 2007

who's going?

All plans are subject to change......

right now i'm thinking about leaving the jacuzzi bus at home and riding my motorcycle. I'd like to find some other crazy person to ride along. 2 bikes are more fun than 1. Especially when one gets a flat tire or runs out of gas!

I'm going - but unless I squeeze more magical mileage out of my propane powered bus.... I'll either take my pickup truck, or buy me a Crown. My wife says the Crown won't be until 2008 - so look for my pickup next to Elliot's "Millicent".

Re: BURNINGMAN 2007

I'll be there; should be camped at 6:00 between inner and outer circle, center camp, next to Recycle (unless space gets appropriated for those with more pull). I'm hoping to have an old light plant trailer w/ an AIR-X mounted; prob also mount my solar panels and batteries on the trailer. No time to do anything else. This will be my 13th straight year. Yes, I've seen the Man burn on the ground!!! The wife and I will be doing Theme Camp Placement, and will be on-playa Aug 8th!!

Re: BURNINGMAN 2007

one more thing....

i originally posted that i was gonna take my motorcycle...........i've since decided to take my skoolie instead. Having my own personal swimming pool on playa is just too good an opportunity to pass up.

i'm also planning to take the dreaded Jungo road.

Re: BURNINGMAN 2007


Theme Camp placements have been announced.

Millicent will be at the intersection of 4:30 and Coral Reef -- in the Kinetic Sculpture Racing Camp.

Can we arrange some sort of get-together, where we tour each others skoolies? We could use my camp as a meeting place, since the address is already determined. You will probably all have bicycles, but I'll have extras if need be. We'd plan the shortest route between the participating skoolies, then visit each and heckle each others handiwork

If that sounds like a plan, all we need is to set a day and time.

Re: BURNINGMAN 2007


Well, we are not being overrun with suggestions for a meeting time, so I'll suggest Noon Wednesday -- just as a starting point for discussion.

We wouldn't want to clash with, say, the Billion Bunny March! Thursday and Friday afternoons are already busy. A morning would be fine with me.
