I have thrown this invite out several years in a row to members of the club.

I am again attending the Burningman Festival in the middle of the Black
RockDesert of Nevada from Aug 27 through September 3, 2007. After the festival
inthe desert , I am off for a week of off roading down into California and to
visit Timm Cooper and have him do a little work on my 101 Forward Control.

I wanted to invite my fellow Rover friends a little earlier this year to
consider attending. If you are unfamilar with the Burningman Festival, I
suggest you read the web page at www.Burningman.com (http://www.burningman.com/) and understand that it is
not a "Hippy Festival. It is more about mad inventors, big machines, and
artists than anything else.

It is the best place I could imagine hanging out with Rover folks and enjoying a
fun road trip.

Feel free to ask me any questions you might have on the subject.

If you simply want to be a part of the adventures after September 3rd and down
into the Sierras, we can arrange a meeting place and continue the travels.

I will be camping with a machinist friend from Salem who is completing the
construction of a 4 ton, eight legged, walking spider art project. It's quite
an exciting engineering feat!!!

(And this year I will again bring my solar powered Freezer to supply Root Beer
Floats in the Desert.)
