Thanks for all the responses. For the record, I bought the 2000. I tried to convince myself into getting one of the cheap "quiet" inverter genny's, but I just couldn't do it. 17 days straight w/o stopping!? That's why I spent the extra coin on the Honda.

you might want to get a smaller main jet for the carburetor. Honda sells one to be used at higher altitude. It does make a difference on the playa. Yeah, that was my other question.

Nah, that's plenty of help. And yes, I did pay a pretty penny for it. I was gonna go with a cheapo but I want it to last for more than a couple days, if that. Plus I respect my neighbors enough to buy Honda.

Honda Generator Owners...

Just got mine in the mail and was wondering about the air filter vs. playa dust. Are you guys cleaning the filter at all during the week? Using a different filter all together? Shed a little light please... :?

Also a hint: Anyone can book a corporate rate. It doesn't take any additional documentation whatsoever. I verified this with Joe directly. I got my 16' for $24/day and $0.16/mile. 11 days for $330 all taxes included. I searched for a coupon code online.. I don't have it handy. Google "Budget truck ...

BUMP Just stopped by Budget here in Reno and I must say that Joe is the shieeet. Truely if anyone needs a truck this year, definitely talk to Joe cause he will hook you up with the cheapest possible rate. Oh, and they are moving in trucks from other various locations just for BM. We got a 16' for 9 ...

I take it you haven't seen Louis C.K.'s "Chewed Up." Sorry if it offends you, but it is a great stand up with many memorable quotes. It's not to be taken seriously.

What's up everyone? Elwood here. I've been attending BM every year since 2002. I'm 27 years old from Reno. Just posting to introduce myself and tell everone to have a great burn, virgins and veterans alike. See you all on the playa, and now on the boards.
