Wouldn't that be a good name for Gerlach's imaginary sister-city?

"Welcome to Burlap, Nevada".

Hey if you could dye, sew and stuff the burlap or better yet canvas sliding pads that looked like fried eggs it would be really cool,... or hot... and would act like a visual warning that a sheet of aluminum in the desert sun could cook you.

It will be fun but, I can imagine as the wood dries out and the slide is used it will begin to sag creating a parabolic mirror death ray focused on the camp across the street,...

Oh, I've got MORE aluminum....Just might have to make a big heliotrope. Got lenses too- big ones, from that projection TV I gutted.....

The "fried egg" warning/slide pad notion is BRILLIANT (!). It follows my "obtuse warning sign" philosophy, too- I've got some plastic duck heads from old decoys that I wanted to hang above the low entrance to the dome. ("DUCK HEAD"...get it?)
