Transition
 
Things are a changin! I have a 1980 full size Gillig that has been our Burning Man work rig for many years. We are cutting back our work time out in the desert, and no longer going to the event. So....a 35 ft. 33K plus GVWR bus is just a bit too much. Last night I drove a 2003 Ford/Thomas 4 window E350 dually short bus home to Reno! It's a 7.3 diesel with 206,000 miles. Runs and drives great, just left service and has a few months left on it's CA school bus inspection. This will be a back country camping rig primarily. Starting to think about how to set it up, but it will be pretty minimalist. No pics for now, you all know what it looks like!!

Yes, Gillig... what about that?

The Gillig is going to go away. I've got a Burner interested locally. If it falls through I'll post here. I'd like it to continue having a presence on the playa.
