Burn Trip Prep

2004-08-18 20:25:45.478895+00 by meuon 2 comments

Prepping for the 'Burn. Unlike those of you in SF, this is a major road trip for those of us in the SouthEast. Even in my big truck, carrying stuff for 3, almost 3000 miles each way, with a few side trips on the way, requires some hauling capacity. Last year I used a bumper hitch bike rack, which not only dragged and broke when 4-wheeling though a canyon, was a pain for getting in and out of the back of the truck. Yesterday, I picked up some scrap aluminum angle (free), and today finished off my mondo roof-rack, with room for 3 bikes and gear boxes. Best part of having a house is having a garage and shop area.

So if you're going to get to Reno an evening before you hit the playa I'll definitely be there to hang out for a bit.
