Wisconsin 91 Blue Bird

Hey everyone, I'm Dave & I've been a lurker for years but never actually posted. I have a 91 gas Blue Bird that a friend & I gutted & converted. It's still rough but I know I'm in the right place for any help we will need to get it completed. (if their is such a state) We essentially got it for Burning Man & camping with our families. We made the 4,000 mile journey once & need to get it ship shape for this year. Thanks in advance for the help I will be requesting

One question for you though- are you sure its 4000 miles from Wisconsin to Burning man?

2005mi according to google. Imo Burning Man is not worth the price. I'd rather go to the Quartzite rock festival >.>

Burning Man costs money?
I've heard its gotten really played out and commercialized. I've heard about the sea of million dollar rv's...
or do you mean the money to get there? I'm just a confused eastcoaster!

http://tickets.burningman.org/ $800 pre-sale, $390 registration, $190 low income tickets. All come with a $50 per vehicle fee.

damn everything has gotten so corporate and teeny-bopper! I really thought it was just a free collective type event. Learn something new every day I guess.

The "free hippie event" I think you're thinking of is Rainbow Gathering. Which changes location every year. Which is another event I want to go to.

No, I've been to those events...
I just never knew burning man required money. Seems odd.

Then it might be a scam. I honestly don't know. I just googled Burning Man and that site came up. If Burning Man really is free, then I'd love to go. Except it takes place in the middle of summer and Nevada isn't exactly well known for its cool summers.

Yeah I went and looked too.
Don't mind me I'm just bleary eyed and crotchety.
I'm always talking smack about the event prices these days. I don't go to events. I spend my money on stuff like buses, and food, and beer. And all the wild wild women... hahaha
