Any word from anybody who is nearby? I'm not close enough to be able to take ownership of this but if the right weekend was selected and I was able to camp for onsite I would be willing to spend a whole weekend working on the Cloud. Any chance we could set up a whole work weekend just for the cloud?

I can try and get you in contact with people who might know something. PM me if you're interested in their email addys, but as it stands right now that's probably much too little and way too late.

I'm nowhere nearby, BUT, I can paint/sew (not well but i get by) and mail stuff - not sure if it would help or what your needs are... But I'd pitch in long distance!

don't know how much time I have, but, I'm good at finding materials. If I have time, I'll help though, depending on when and where.

If I was closer I would be there helping, but an 8 hour drive is a bit too long.
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.

Capn Joe, you choose the weekend and I will do my best to make it.

Do you have a list of what needs to be done? If we had a list of tasks along with material requirements we might be able to divvy them up.

This sucks. Our three main generators, the 5500-watt for the camp and the two 2500-watt gennies for The Cloud Car and Barbie's Mobile Whorehouse were stolen. It seems the people who were storing them knew they were swiped back around the first of the year, found out their insurance wouldn't cover replacement, and decided, using those immortal words of Charlie Brown, "No problem is so big that it can't be ran away from." So when we went into storage to fetch the generators to get to work on the art cars, guess what? When confronted with the question, "Uh, where are our generators?" they fessed up. So now we have to spend a buttload of money to replace those gennies that had been paid for just to get the basic infrastructure up and running. This not only really sucks but completely screws our budget. If anyone has a suggestion (we're looking at Craigslist today) I'd love to hear it.

What would the replacement cost be? And if everyone pitched in a small amount like $10-20 each would that cover it?

Just putting it out there...

Check Costco - locally they have (Had) 2KW inverter generators for around $650. 4-stroke Yamaha engine, ~55dB so quiet with small loads, pretty fuel efficient, pretty light. I bought one, haven't tested it yet but likely will give it a run-through this weekend. I'm bringing it but I've already committed it to Ohio Boyz.

I also have a 5KW I use for the house. It's getting a little long in the tooth but still works fine. Loud, very loud, worse than the noises coming from Doc's RV. If things don't work out on replacing the BDV generator, let me know, I can likely fit it in somehow.

Hi Doc; PlayaPoppa here. I have a 5000 watt genset (Honda). It's mounted on small wheels; has 240Volt/ 120 outputs @ 30 amps. It has been to the Playa before, I hadn't planned on bringing it this year; but I can bring it with me for your use. PM me here at Triken's and we can work out the details for getting it to your camp. I hope this helps !

(Triken here... we'll do whatever we can to help... boy, that really sucks to have had yours stolen!!)
