Welcome, OldDocWilliamson. Glad to hear you've read the RV Survival Guide. This is another good thread about how to keep an RV experience manageable.OldDocWilliamson wrote:Hi, I'm "OldDocWilliamson" but as you'll see in my sig, I am not a doctor, it's just a nickname. I hail originally from Canada (kinda allover, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Peachland, Moncton) but last 30 years in Los Angeles and Phoenix. First time burner this year. I've been aware of BM for longer than I can remember, which lately seems to be in the same class as the Ellen Degeneris character in Finding Nemo. Still working on logistics and finances of attending BM 2013, including considering RV rentals, and looking for potential RV-mates to split the costs. So far it's me and my longtime friend from Victoria, British Columbia. (I have sleep apnea so will probably be running a small electric breathing assist device all night, which is not as intrusive as it sounds, but want to do full disclosure before luring otherwise unsuspecting folks.)
I thought, merely abstractly, about a yurt, but seeing someone mention theirs here, Sounds like it could/would be a lot cheaper than the $2500 to $6000 for a motorhome. I suppose I'll have to research that too.
Tips on RV (yes, I've read the RV survival guide) or yurts or anything else will be appreciated.
I'll curb my tendency to blab too much, and shut up now.
Exp. RVers: Suggestions for House rules for renting an RV
You can post in 2013 Share Resources once you've got your RV reserved and list the city you'll be leaving from and the places you're likely to pass through. Some heavy sleeper may be happy to bunk with you and your friend. There will also be a rideshare board on the Burning Man site later in the year.

Photographer by trade, I actually consider myself a retired guy that has to frequently come out of retirement to make a dollar or two. I'll be coming from Alabama so looking for someone to share a trip.
I trust you've seen the Photographer's Guide? If not, here ya go . . .
I am not sure if the Alabama Burner mailing list is active, but you might try joining it. Maybe you'll meet a rideshare. There will also be a rideshare board on the main Burning Man website, as I was telling OldDocWilliamson . . .
