Re: Limousines on playa

Nope. And Nope. I have friends up in Canada that redid a cadillac into a beautiful bar in the middle. Called it "The Limo Bar" I mean this thing was a work of art. And they tried to get it into Burning Man. Turned down twice. One of the criteria of the DMV is that the base vehicle has to be radicall...

Re: Looking for collaborative space to store/work on mutant vehicle in Bay Area!

NIMBY had space from now until September before they have to vacate. And make sure your plan is to completely mask your base vehicle so no one knows what that is. There was a guy who wanted to do an ice cream truck a couple of years ago and got turned down by DMV. When you said "Pizza Party Delivery...

Re: Service Camps: Heroes or Plight of BRC?

I get a kick in the ass from helping people. I really do. Last year I made my little MV into a tow truck and hauled people and their bikes in when they were disabled. I knew where the bike repair camps were. But in at least half the tows, the folks said just take them back to camp as they had the to...

How do folks feel about keeping to the BRC speed limit of 5 mph? Or are motorized personal conveyances exempt from this? It's a good question. I typically operate my bicycle between 10 and 20 mph when I actually get on the damn thing. Is that also bad? We "raced" a BLM ranger in a golf cart on our ...

Yes, Dr., but no one is going to want a gutted, bullethole-ridden 747 plane carcass in their town square as 'art'.
I understand. I was only referencing art. I believe the 747 was classified as an MV.

This is why there is a long standing tradition of building real big stuff out of wood. You know, immediacy, temporary and all that blather.

No one seems to have a problem with boats or couches or carpets being MVs, why not planes? What is the interest in that thing besides it being big? It's a boring, resource taxing, destructive burden.

Actually, there is some basis for saying that they do give people permission to dream and even more so, create. I met my true love there and we've just celebrated our 11th burn together.
