Re: Getting prepared for BM 2016, one item a day

Friday night: the brackets got attached to the truck frame for the camper lift and the exhaust got re-routed. It doesn't sound like much...

Re: Getting prepared for BM 2016, one item a day

Thursday report: I came home from work and went straight to bed. This weekend I Intend to get the Yacht loaded into the trailer (that's a bit of an effort) and pretty much start loading up to go. Also on the list: gotta cut the truck exhaust and re-route to clear the camper lift, weld the camper bra...

Re: Getting prepared for BM 2016, one item a day

Two new deep-cycle batteries went into the Land Yacht today. Starting battery is OK,leaving that alone.

Edit: that makes it sound so easy... actually I've been up late working on stuff every night and I'm about to die but most of it is boring details.

And if that's not enough I'll have an air impact plus all the sockets.

Re: Getting prepared for BM 2016, one item a day

That sucks about losing three day's worth at this point! But insulation is everything. One of the worst parts of a school bus is the windows. I doubt you have time to remove and skin over them but anything you can do to cover and insulate them is good. It's smart to insulate the whole thing, that wa...

Re: Getting prepared for BM 2016, one item a day

Going to get the camper and bring it to the house today and work on installing the electric lift.
Put a "mystery switch" floor button in the truck to lock the torque converter whenever I want.
There's still TONS to do!

Re: How to Break In A Honda EU2000i

Mine were 12 years old and lived a similar life. Still worked just fine. Last year, since the resale is so high and cost for new ones isn't so bad if you know where to shop (Mayberrys.com is the Honda generator go-to) I decided to replace them just to freshen up, IF I could get really good $$ for th...

The Land Yacht

Since I got invited to be part of Fresh Out Of Vodka, or whatever this joint is called, I figured I'd introduce everyone to the Land Yacht. I'll be trailering this big heavy thing from Seattle. The Land Yacht is a 26 foot cabin cruiser mutant vehicle. It's all custom built. There's no car or truck c...

Re: Getting prepared for BM 2016, one item a day

I don't use a generator on the yacht.
It has a rather elaborate electric system of its own, with multiple alternators and deep cycle batteries with a 2000 watt pure sine wave inverter. You never have to think much about power it's just always magically there.
The Land Yacht is bad ass.

Re: Handheld for the playa

Oh yeah, I had mad tracking skills back in the day. Best setup I had: installed jack on radio for external S-meter, got huge meter from Boeing surplus and wired it up. Base-loaded antenna mounted straight off back of vehicle, like a tail so the car's groundplane effect made it highly directional to ...

Re: Weather watch

When it's hot like that in BRC I tend to sleep during the day and be out and about at night when it's not so miserable.

I think the vast majority did wear burlap sacks.
All this fancy wear was only worn by the few elite rich.

Re: just a thought

I managed to go to five Burning Mans before even bringing a camera.
I kinda wish I had, but only because I can't remember shit! Or maybe it's better that there's no evidence.
