I need some help getting 3 16ft long 4x4's to the playa...

Postby spacelotus » Sat Feb 02, 2013 4:58 pm

Hi,

My name is Spacelotus and I will be returning to the Playa this year for the 11th time. Woo Hoo! I am trying to find out if there is anyone or any camps in San Francisco with a truck going to Burning Man that has room to fit 3 16ft long 4x4's. I am willing to help with gas, donate time, or trade. I am needing to build a new center pyramid for my hammock art piece.

Thanks,
Spacelotus

Quick, while there is time, get rid of that "pay".
Second--you know, most people don't even know what they are doing, much less know how much they have in their truck.
Finally, add some geography. Any answers from Louisiana aren't going to do you much good if you're in North Dakota.

Thanks for the heads up. I did forget to say I live in SF. It's never to late to start planning and I do think that most large camps know if they are going and if they would have room. I will take my chances and hope for the best :)

Thanks,

If you wait until June-ish the Ride-share board will be up and some people offer cargo space on that. Like Fishy said, this early in the year most people have no clue how much extra space they will have.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

I'm giving this a nudge over to the Share Resources board, which is a better fit for ride, RV, and gear haulage share posts. It's probably far too early in the season to get much of a response, but good luck.

We have a 24' truck coming from Reno this year with plenty space if that could help.

"We have a 24' truck coming from Reno this year with plenty space if that could help."


That could help if I can't find anyone in SF! Let me know whenever you find out when you will be leaving Reno for the Playa. I could buy the 4x4's in Reno and take them to your truck. Thanks for the offer Junglesmacks :)
