Re: Roving Desert Echo Dome.

Are you trying to impress us? I’ve got two houses in Seattle. Go look at real estate value here... You’re gonna come up with an incredibly grand scheme and magically a huge team of builders are going to do it all under your direction, even though you don’t know WTF you’re talking about.

Re: Roving Desert Echo Dome.

All the Mutant Vehicle thing is way too much work for one person. Handicapped golf cart best option. Coppers less likely to hassle cotton tops. I’ve been doing my own, on my own, for almost 20 years. It’s too much for one person? Not if they aren’t full of hot air. Didn’t you just get through talki...

You may be acquainted with B1 bomber production lines but that has virtually zero relevance to building and operating a Burning Man mutant vehicle - and on an infinitely smaller budget.

Re: Giant torso with Penis

Absolutely. But, take trailering ability into account when you do that. Your typical Class A motorhome will struggle with a heavy trailer, not only in power but handling. Class C motorhomes are worse for trailering. Their chassis stops a few feet behind the rear axle and the chasss is extended with ...

No, he’s not paid. Chuck Lindbergh wasn’t on his first flight when he took on the transatlantic flight. RVs rock, gives you somewhere to get away from the dust.

You really need to go to Burning Man first, you just don’t understand the logistics yet. You’d never be able to roll a 100’ wide anything along the inner playa. Too many obstacles... lamp poles, art installations, people hanging out, bikes laying on the playa, etc. You can’t camp on the playa. You’d...

The alcohol rules aren’t Burning Man rules, those are real-cops rules. The swimming pool idea has major things wrong with it. It is strictly forbidden by heath dept. rules to have any kind of public pool. That’s the main one. Also I don’t believe you could physically do it. Even if you could build t...

Ok so assuming all that you should have the skill set and room to build something. Next logistic to making it real is scale, you can go as big as you’re able to carry out there. That depends on your truck and trailer size and weight capacity. Once that’s established, the next Big MV Decision is - fu...

Big penis art cars have actually been done, I can think of several. In ‘00 a guy had one that dispensed vodka. Generally, it’s up to you to build your idea. The place to start with an MV is logistics. How big a truck and trailer have you got? Size of MV starts with what you can haul out there. Next ...

Ironically your estimate is pretty close, a car like that does typically idle through 1/4 to 1/3 gallons/hr... but I fail to see how vehicle speed during a coast down test, which is mostly a factor of rolling resistance, has anything to do with testing static-state hourly consumption. *Facepalm* I ...
