I am giving Away my Art Car

Postby krchesebro » Tue Dec 27, 2016 4:57 pm

Hello Burners. I am K and I own and an art cart I built with my son around 2012. The Big Friendly Fish has been to Burningman five times and always received a day and night license. She is a steel built on a Cushman Haulster and carries two up front three or four in the back, and two on top. The ethos is mad max meets Dr Zues. She is about 20 feet long by 5 wide by 11 feet tall but her tail and dorsal fin are removable allowing her to be stored in a tall garage. She runs well but needs continuing maintenance and will only bond to a mechanic. The Fish is transported on a flat bed trailer ( NOT INCLUDED) .
I have leukemia and will not be returning to the playa and in the spirit of Burningman I want to give the Fish Away. Respond to this post with contact info or E mail me at krchesebro@gmail.com. I am in the Bay Area (Suisun City CA ). You pick her up or if you are close I can deliver. I will send pictures. I want to think of the Fish Partying on the Playa.
Have Fun

What a generous thing to do.

I'm sorry you won't be returning to the playa.

Stupid cancer.

Oh my god, it's HUGE!

What an amazing gesture and gift to the Burner community! Thank you for this!

Here is hoping you can kick leukemias ass, be able to return to the playa, and we can each shake your hand.

Extremely generous of you. I wish I had some mechanical know-how... I would love to be able to foster the fish until you're ready to make your return to the playa. Speedy recovery to you my friend.

If someone in the Bay wants it but doesn't have a trailer, I can go get it for you. But i can't haul it to the playa for you. Let me know.

So sorry to hear the news of leukemia. I think I can picture the Big Friendly Fish, and I think I got a ride on it a few years ago. Thank you for that then and now! Many great memories out there. Wishing you the best, comfort, and healing.

Such an amazingly kind gift to the community. Thank you.

A close friend was diagnosed with leukemia about 5 years ago. With much strength and courage on his part and the love and support of those around him, he was able to beat it. Sending you all those things so that you can kick leukemia right in the ass!

Hi, K! I'm so sorry to hear of your illness, and love the idea that you're making sure she'll continue to make the trek to the playa. If you'd like to post some of your favorite pictures, you can either upload to a free hosting site like imgur and then copy/paste the image address here, or you can upload up to 3 pictures to a post using the 'attachments' tab (right below the box where you type in your message).

If you do a bit of research you'll see it's too late for this year. The deadline for apps is long past. Plan for next year.
