There & back yes. Almost exactly 2000 miles one way. Despite a few problems (blew out exhaust & random check engine light) we were fortunate enough to not have to leave the bus in NV. Getting there was only 1/2 of the journey

You've heard incorrectly(sort of). Aside from the cost of your ticket, if you travel with others & camp in a tent it can be pretty cheap. It's all a matter in what creature comforts you can live without. There are RV & busses, but the majority of people are camping. This year tickets are $390 for the week. I've paid >$50 for a concerts that last only a few hours. Expensive is relative to everyone.

To put that in perspective, many of the people at Burning Man were pooping in diapers in 95

It was cheaper back then too.

Then you should definitely go

Have you not seen the YouTube videos Man????

Actually, I'm kidding & the videos only portray the glamorous side. It's not for everyone. For some, facing the elements, heat of the afternoon, cold of night, potential for >70MPH winds, & oh yes...the dust storms, it's more of an adventure in to the unknown with a continuous 24/7 week long party.

I go for the camaraderie of friends I have made over the years, the music, creativity, & yes, the never ending party. Anyone who welds or tinkers can't help but be impressed by some of the artwork & vehicles seen there. Go to Uncle Google & do an image search on "Art cars of burning man".

It's truly a different world.

Anyway, this wasn't supposed to be a thread about Burning Man. If anyone actually wants to know about it PM me. I will be more than happy to give you my 2cents.

I should of left it with "Hi, I'm Dave. I have a bus".

Burning Man, Quartzsite and other festivals aside. Since you're going to be traveling around anyway, I'd say check multiple state craigslist, auctions and other ads for the random stuff you'll need to prep your bus to survive not only the frigid Wisconsin winters, but as you said, the insane winds, heat and dust that comes with Nevada in the summertime. Also, as stated in other forums...post pics!!!
