Bugger. My install of a new solar panel on top of the luggage rack has been held up by the discovery of a couple of small rust-through holes just where the luggage rack trim meets the main roof. Interestingly they're where spot-welds should be stronger than other nearby bits. Whatever, the luggage rack is still off, the paint applied today will have to wait until tomorrow afternoon to be cured enough to refit the rack. Next year - again...

Vans only?


bURNINGvAN has always been about the people first. Vanagons are just the icing on the cake.

Iím one of the organizers and been guilty of driving something other than a Vanagon or any T3 variation. Tomorrow, look for the white Syncro with a custom hightop held onto the roof with camo straps. Iíll handing out a free sticker to anyone who mentions Rennieís name. Supplies are limited.

This BV is dedicated to Rennie who is losing his fight with cancer. He has been a part of the VW community for over 30 years. Unfortunately, he is too ill to make it to BV. There will be a number on each sticker which will be drawn for a few VW related trinkets. This is separate from other giveaways by some attendees.

Saw very few posts about 2018 except the couple in this thread. 10am this time instead of 12pm is still the plan? Is there another site or Facebook event for more info? Wanna know what to do once we get there! Like, find a spot and park, or are there other things for us to be aware of? Thanks

Someone else was in charge of promoting the event on Samba. Sadly, it appears he has done nothing that I am aware of.

Notifications have been posted on various Facebook groups for months. The pinned post is on the Vanagon Ads Group. Itís a Public Group which should be shareable across various platforms. Letís try this:
https://www.facebook.com/events/382823785506770/?ti=icl

Is also on the Vanagon Cafe Group, Vanagon Owners Group, and VW Westfalia Group in Facebook.

Welcome aboard! I see youíve requested to join at least 3 groups which I admin. Are going to see you at bURNINGvAN today? Someone reported that there were already vans there an hour ago. Iím the organizer and am barely getting out of bed. My co-organizer had to be reminded BV was today. Thatís the level of organization. But then this was always a hangout day for friends. Itís never been intended as a job. That would be too much work. If you go, Iíll be the guy in a white tintop Syncro with an uninstalled hightop strapped to the roof. Or running around in an army green Pinzgauer cap.

Yes! We were there from about 10:15 to 2pm. Thank you for the Facebook accepts. We had our white 87 weekender and cute pitbull in the driver's seat for most of the day Very Happy

Will post pics in a few days. Itís easier to post on Facebook. Especially since dozens of people contribute. However, I will collect pics and post them to a single album accessible to Sambanistas. In the meantime, I posted the preview in a gallery called ďThumbnails from bURNINGvAN 2018Ē.

I'm hoping to get a surf in and meet a bunch of good folks. Will have some cold adult beverages on ice for the afternoon wind-down for those so inclined!
