THE TRUCK

Camp Videogasm is again doing the truck to Burning Man in 2019. If you live near the Philadelphia or Detroit metropolitan areas and need to have your gear transported to Black Rock City, please see below for more info

*CLEARLY label your box with your actual name, playa name, general location (Philly or
Detroit), camp name, email and phone number. Place this information on the lid, as well as one of the sides. Please zip tie your bins closed. Also DO NOT CUT the ends of  your zip ties! These leave sharp edges that can cut our loaders / drivers. Just point the loose ends downward. 

*DO NOT PUT DRUGS, WEAPONS OR OTHER ILLEGAL MATERIALS IN YOUR BOX!! Please!
This puts the drivers at risk! No one should go to jail, or get fined for your carelessness. REMEMBER:
You are responsible for the contents of your cargo! 

*Bikes must be in a good quality standard bike box. Do not put other things in the bike
box, make sure it’s not ripped, and easy to carry. No protruding petals or handle bars! We will have tools on hand to further knock down bikes. YOU are expected to do this for the return trip. Secure labels and seal boxes with packing tape. Duck tape will melt in the heat, fall off and become moop. 

*All generators or gasoline motors must be empty, run dry and aired out.

*If you under measured you will be charged the difference before you are allowed to put your gear on the truck. Either bring extra cash or be ready to PayPal the difference to us on the spot..

*We reserve the right to charge extra for overweight items. Overweight means more than 10 lbs/cu ft. Overweight Plus means over 13 lbs/cu ft. For a bumble bee bin this means over 50 lbs or 65 lbs respectively. Overweight rate is $11 / cu ft.  Overweight Plus is $13 / cu ft. 

*NO REFUNDS! But you are free to sell your space to someone else. You must notify us by email prior to the person showing up with their cargo.

Q: What's the deal with this truck?

A: We are renting a 24 foot panel truck. Making stops in King of Prussia ,PA.(a suburb of Philadelphia), and Woodhaven, MI (a suburb of Detroit).

Q: How big is it? 

A: The truck is 1250 cubic feet, but only 700 cubic feet is available for rental. Space is very tight, pack efficiently!

Q: When is the truck leaving and arriving in Reno?

A: The truck will leave King of Prussia, PA on the morning of Saturday, 8/17 for a Friday 8/23 arrival in Black Rock City. There will also be a stopover in Woodhaven, Michigan on Sunday, 8/18 to pick up the bulk of Camp Videogasm's Stuff. Anyone in the Detroit Metro Area interested in getting space on the truck, must make arrangements with Early prior to 8/18. The Truck will leave from Michigan on the morning of Monday 8/19.

Q: How much will it cost?

A: Space will be rented at the rate of $9 per cubic foot. (All quoted prices include transportation both to and from Burning Man). Be realistic in the amount of space you'll need. To determine cubic footage, imagine putting a box over your stuff. Then multiply that box's width, by it's length, by it's height. For example: a space 5 feet wide by 5 feet long by 4 feet tall = 100 cubic feet.

Q: When is the money due?

A: By Friday, August 16 for advance payments. If there is still space left over, then you can pay in CASH ONLY up until when we pack the truck. Note that there is no guarantee that the truck won't be filled by then, so pay in advance if you can. Before bringing stuff at the last minute, check with Early in case we are indeed full. We don't want you to waste a trip only to have the truck filled when you arrive.

Q: Who/where do I make payment to?

A: Please use Paypal to pay for your cargo...

The address to make payment to is: videogasm@gmail.com

 

Important!  Please indicate with your payment what is being paid for (i.e.: number of cubic feet or bins), and who it is being paid for (for those of you paying as couples or groups)  Also, include a note with your full name, mailing address, preferred phone number and e-mail addresseither in the PayPal message area or send an email to Early. You will receive an e-mail confirmation.

Q: So when can I drop off my stuff?

A: Anytime after August 1st.  You will need to make arrangements with Andy for a Philadelphia drop off, or Early for a Detroit drop off.

Q: Who will load the truck?

A: We will need volunteers to do this on Friday afternoon/evening 8/16 at Andy's place in PA, and again at Early's place in MI on Sunday 8/18. The truck is scheduled to leave Philadelphia on the morning of the 17th , Detroit on the morning of the 19th.

Q: Do I need to be a camp member in order to be in on the truck?

A: No, although we would prefer that you were a member of Camp Videogasm, or Snowflake Village, beggar's can't be choosers. Note: the truck will not make "deliveries" once it's on the playa.  It pulls into camp and then stays put.

Q: OK, so where in Black Rock City can I get my stuff?

A: The truck will be parked @ Camp Videogasm, in Snowflake Village, address Esplanade and 7:15.

Q: When is the truck leaving Black Rock City?

A: At dawn on Tuesday 9/3.  You must have everything you wish to send back on the truck at Camp Videogasm by noon on Monday. We will need volunteers to help reload the truck on Monday afternoon.

Q: When will the truck arrive back in Woodhaven? King of Prussia?

A: Sometime on Friday, September 6th, we will be in Woodhaven (Michigan), doing an unload of the appropriate stuff and then continuing on to King of Prussia, PA. Michiganders can pick up their stuff in Woodhaven starting on Friday 9/6. East Coasters in K of P starting on Sunday 9/8.

The overall message is PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE! The drivers are doing A LOT pre and post playa to help make your trip easier. Think of them when you pack your boxes, make sure they’re in good condition, easy to read, and easy to lift and stack. Thank you!
