still trying to make this work
So I saw a commercial for a National RV rental compnay and checked it out.

Here's the link to rates.

For a large RV which includes a Generator and everything, for 8 days, it's 1790. That only has room to sleep 7 as well, and 4 of those are in shared beds.

I also put in a call to Family RV which is located in San Jose. Found the number on the RVAmerica website. They should be calling me back. Acourding to the information listed, you can get the larger RV from them for only 600 bucks. Which would be amasing.

Checked the RV-rental network website, and got a quote for a large Class C RV for 2100 dollars. Something tells me the quotes from Family RV is going to be higher then 600 bucks for the week.

Another thing I just thought of, an Rv is going to have to be rented a couple extra days, like one before, one after, since you have to pack/unpack the thing when you get it/get back.

EDIT and repost since I was dumb and put it in my journal first.

Also called Arnone RV in San Jose. Nice lady there. They have a 10 person Class C that will run 1000 per week, plus 160 each additional day AND 20 cents a mile.

So, I need somebody to get a milage run from San Jose up to the playa. I'd do it right now, but I gotta go to work.

Another thing with Arnone, and this may be with other rentals too, the person who rents must provide coverage through an insurance carrier. So, I can't rent the RV, since my insurance has no coverage. Also, she made a point to mention that the 10 person RV has no Tv, which honestly, I like that more :) THIS one sounds good, and we'll need to move quick probably to get it. Didn't ask about deposit. Probably like half or something.

Respond guys. I'm still working for this, I expect a show of support now.

So what do ya'll want to see when you see our group of ___ [I keep the number 10 in my head and just work with that, always guestimate more than you'll need] members heading down to Black Rock City? UW has conveyed some hopes dreams fears ect. about the mundane stuff- The transportation and the money and the water, ect.

How 'bout some OTHER ideas? Even if you aren't sure you're even going, Hell even if you're NOT going ideas are awesome. A lot of us [Like UW and I], this is our first time. So our ideas are no less than your ideas, and certainly no more. :)

My Fear of The Moment is that people are going into this thinking they can just toss in 20 bucks and hop on the truck. I wish it were that easy, but this isn't like going to a convention. Its like going camping in a forest full of oddly dressed moving trees. We all have rent to pay, Hell to pay and pay to give away. I know that. But its every little bit counts now: Stop going to McD's, Start counting your coins and go make use of your saving's account for what its useful for. I don't mind if someone else is picking up the slack for you. Just be aware it isn't going to be me. Well. In the money dept. at least..

I just ate a peanut butter flavored jelly bean and it was NOT good times.

Update: I just ate a coffee flavored jelly bean, and its good times again. See? That's life.

Here's how I stand:

Food: I will supply my own food. I will bring a little more than what I need, but not much. Depends more on how much I can carry then the cost. I want everyone to be fed WELL. Water is something I will contribute money towards. You crazy fools on the West Coast are going to have to tackle the issue of bringing it together. I heard something about a hose? What?

Essentials: As far as I'm concerned, I'm bringing my own everything so I have everything I think I'd need. If I have extra to share, Its done. If I don't, I'll live without it. It ain't no thang.

Bathing: [at this time] I really can't contribute to buying one of these shower contraptions I've heard speak about [seems like a waste of water to me] therefore I won't, and no, I won't be that guy and try to mooch off of it later in the game. Baby wipes and dust baths for me, please.

Sleep: I'm not going camping so I can sleep indoors. In otherwords, I don't want to sleep in an RV. I liked the parachute tent idea the best but I'm sure some of you would like privacy. I can't afford a tent myself so unless my dad has one I'll either be sleeping in the RV, if that's the road we go down, or I'll be sleeping under the parachute.

Transportation: Again, the RV subject. I don't really care what's purchased for transportation but I have VERY LITTLE MONEY and would like to go with what's cheapest. I don't need [or want] electricity out in the desert. I don't need a private bathroom [port o potties: there for a reason] If it rains, I'll deal. I don't mind being wet, I just don't want my shit to get wet. That's what the transportation is for, to me. To get us there and to keep our shit safe. We need something for "us" and the luggage, we need something for our water.

Finally, Getting my shit out there: When it comes down to the final weeks I may utilize my dad's buisness' UPS to mail some things out to whomever I can do this to. I'm flying out there from Deleware [or Philly or NJ or Baltimore], luggage after about 45 pounds is expensive. Free is better than expensive, so there you have it. Once we know exactly /what/ we're driving around in we'll know just how much space we'll have for luggage. If I can fit everything I need into one big suitcase, awesome. If I can fit it into two, So be it. Three and I'd need to rethink what I'm taking in the first place.

Bloop. I'm tired of writing and my break is over [back to doing commissions]. I'd really like to hear from ya'll. Not in replies to this post but in seperate posts stating how you feel and what not. Huzzah?

Current Mood: happy
