I actually saw the sky diver come down with a tangled chute on Wednesday afternoon. I heard later from a ranger that he lived.

Best: Getting a taste of whiteout conditions on Thursday pre event. It was kind of nice to get the acclimatizing and near dehydration out of the way quickly.

Re: Is this a scam?

Directed tickets for art projects are using a time sensitive code which does expire if the ticket is not purchased in time. We actually just submitted our final request for tickets for the CORE project last week. However those tickets are for core artists and helpers.

Re: Melting point of Brass?

After hearing some of the replies here, I don't think I have anything to worry about. Our DG pad will be BORG approved and the fire won't get all too hot. I asked because I couldn't find any info about it on the main BM site. They mention aluminum, but not brass.

Re: Melting point of Brass?

That's some good info, thanks. The BMORG is providing a 3 inch thick pad of decomposed granite for burn scar prevention. Well, they're providing us the material for it, and cleaning it up after the burn. I'll have to check with the Artery to see if this something they may have more info on. UFO, If ...

Re: Temporary Land Art

A lot of that will just be docent duties, and I'm totally looking forward to talking to people about our art. So glad I got hooked up with the CORE...

Re: Temporary Land Art

I'm abandoning this project for the year. I will be far too busy with the build lead position on the CORE project to take on too much extra. I do need a few days on playa to just explore and roam. If anyone thinks this is a good idea, feel free to do it!

Thanks for the replies. The CORE projects will all have DG pads for burn scar protection, and I don't think it will melt unless we use a bellows.

Melting point of Brass?

We just received a bunch of broken cymbals from a drummer friend. We are planning on cutting these up and these for accents on the Dragon Lotus effigy. I found out that the melting point of brass is 1710 degrees Fahrenheit. Will this melt in the burn, creating an uncleanable moop disaster? All the i...

I keep my beard well trimmed. I have to carve out a shape that accentuates the good parts and hides the bad parts. If I let it grow, it quickly encroaches on my eyesight and starts a commune with my chest hair.
