Re: Mutating Mad Max style vechile with mobile dance cage

That would be ideal. I think it would make a great addition to other art cars that throw deep playa parties with good sound. It won't make it out to playa this year. We are stress testing the design at Wasteland Weekend this year. When we get back we will have 11 months to plan for how to make it ab...

I totally respect yours and Drawingablank's comments. Bob's however had no constructive criticism and was blatantly unnecessary.

Re: Mutating Mad Max style vechile with mobile dance cage

There are plans for a large exposed sprocket and motorcycle chain setup with motor to automate the arms and the top platform that hinge up from the back of the vehicle. We also want to bring an arm out to the side with a net hammock seat. We would like to mount one of those earth chainsaws that dig ...

Re: Mutating Mad Max style vechile with mobile dance cage

The render is a concept and the project is in progress. It will have many more modifications and decorations than are shown in the render before it even reaches Wasteland Weekend 2012, let alone playa next year. Plus doesn't the Death Guild roll around in some vehicles that still look like trucks or...

My dogs are ALMOST perfect and humans piss on the playa.

Anyway, since this thread has started both of my pups are now kennel trained.

At first read I saw "With the right seasonings I may be able to taste like bacon."

Anyway, I only eat bacon at burning man but having the animals around would provide for some food in the event of the apocalypse.

Please don't make the mistake of thinking that volunteering for DPW is a way to get your dog in to the event.

Yeah, that is pretty much what I figured. That the DPW dogs belong to volunteers that have been doing it a while and created a good report for themselves.

Playa dogs?

I know that bringing your dog to burning man is shunned upon, not allowed, and a harsh environment for an animal that cannot easily adapt on it's own. I have had to leave my little guy at home with my roommate these past two years of having him and I know that is pretty hard on him. I now have a new...

This occurred before there was recycling (the late 50s). Also at the time, drinking alcohol and cigarette smoking were not considered hazards to the fetus.

I bought 70% block aluminet. It is mylar mesh, and has not so much as a small tear in it, after using it the last two years. Really holds up in wind, and allows critical ventilation. It had to be 15-20 degrees cooler under the aluminet. I bought a 13 X 21 sheet for $100, the green house supply stor...

Yes, very cool looking, but yes, very dirty. Yeah, the ones I saw that seemed to be playa dust were not necessarily circles like that.

They weren't all black like that one. Some of them seemed to be formed purely of playa dust. Why only on Sunday and Monday and not all week long?

I wonder how segway walkers would fair on the playa. I've never been so I don't know if they have been there already. Once again they probably need a noisy generator to recharge them.
