Looking to rent reefer truck space(Fruit&Veggies)

Post by DimensionAscention » Sun Jul 15, 2012 12:57 pm

Hey,

I am a organic produce farmer and I am looking to bring a bunch of fruit and veggies out to the Playa to make juices for fellow burners. Was hoping to help share the rental of a reefer truck with a camp. I dont need much space. If anyone has a truck leaving from the bay area that I could put a pallet or two of fruit on with it would be greatly appreciated, so I dont have to get it out there. None of the camps that I am with have large cooling space... More than willing to help out in any way I have to, to make it happen. I think there are others doing this, if I can pitch in, or help you doing something similar I would enjoy being a part of it. Nothing like fresh juice on the Playa!!

A chest freezer with a modified thermostat and a small Honda generator is great on the playa.

I ran two from a single Honda EU1000 a few years back, one as a freezer and the second for holding kegs of homebrew ale.

Why work on someone else's time and dime when you can do it yourself.

Hey D^A, it's me from the Farmer's Market :)

You don't happen to know much about generators do you?

And Dragonpilot, thanks for the headsup. We <3 juice.
