Boop Boop Boop!  We are bringing Gunther out to the playa, again, this year! He needs a bit of maintenance to make it possible. Dues only cover so much. Please, help us to get him out there! More ...

          Boop Boop Boop! 

We all know Gunther can make some noise and light up like a mofo. But like a lot of things that happen at Burning Man the way those systems have been put together was quick, hasty, and without much fancy. The time has come for us to gussy up Gunther's party workings. We'll be fine tuning both the on-board and off-board sound systems, as well as cable and wire wrangling in the cab to make the experience of driving Gunther just as easy, plush, kush, suave, and luxurious as it is for those lounging about up in the cuddle loft. It's time we did some manscaping!

We are raising money for:

Insurance/Registration (So we can drive Gunther out there!) 

Gas ('Cause he doesn't run only on hopes and dreams.)

General maintenance (Hoses, fluids, belts, 'n such.) 

New rib cushions (The pool noodles protecting us from smashing our domes on the uprights need a bit of love.)

ALL the white duct tape!

A new, improved spotter stand (So, I can actually see what is going on while not being in anyone's way on the second wonkey box.) 

A shiny, colorful paint job (The gold was a bit last year. We want to add some color to Gunther!) 

A bit of extra soft fabric (There are a few places we need to repair after last year's shenanigans.) 

Reinforcing the sidewalls (So people can stand on them! Maybe. At least, Meerkats can stand on them...!) 

On-board and off-board sound systems (To party harder!) 

Cable wrangling in the cab (Let's face it, it's a mess in there. We're going to clean it up!) 

Pimping out the cab (This is something we've wanted to do from the beginning. This year, we're going to make it happen! The driver deserves to ferry us around in style and comfort.) 

Replace the dirver's side door handle (So, we can open the door from the inside. OooOOOo! Shiny!) 

Replace the windshield (It is covered in slag right now from when we welded ALL the things!)
