Thanks for the search tip, knowmad. Just spent the last 20 minutes sifting through some older posts and learning.
We're looking at buses that run on propane, gasoline or diesel. With respect to propane, how does that work around the playa? Can we fill up with propane on the playa somehow? And we're driving it down from BC, Canada. Are there enough places to fill up all the way down?
Hi, welcome to ePlaya!!!
I am from Saskatoon SK, so I have a good understanding of the distance you will travel
There is nothing provided on playa beyond porta-potties and the option to purchase ice and coffee. If you need it, you will need to bring it.
Therefore, I suspect that propane might not be a good fuel choice. It is fairly easy to bring in cans or barrels of fuel (both gas and diesel). I have no idea how complicated propane is (wrt topping up a vehicle fuel tank).
Lots of burners drive down from BC, so there must be fuel stops. Again, I am unsure about the propane availability. Diesel and gasoline are readily available.
Have you contacted anyone in your local burner community? there is a BM regional rep in Victoria: http://regionals.burningman.com/ca_bc_vic.html
It is very cool finding out how experienced burner are prepared to help virgins.
see ya on the playa!
