She was an ER trauma nurse.
She always had two or three adopted dogs and a cat or two.
She revelled in being a sparklepony, but she did the work. She ran her own camp, drove in her own truck and brought all her own stuff to BM, real old school style.
And she had a better captain’s hat than I did.
Actually one year the Land Yacht only made it because she got me an un-cracked oil pan for its engine from an Oregon wrecking yard... it happens to use one that’s very hard to find.

Capt, So sorry. Thank you for sharing her wonderfulness with us. When we hear about truly nice and generous folks we aim a little higher in our own lives. Praise her every time you think of her. It's a great way to honour Kelly and grieve at the same time.

Captain,
Sorry to hear about Kelly's passing. I hope the memories of your good times with Kelly will soften the pain of your loss. We need more burners like her.
Best Regards,
Leo

My long-time best friend/campmate/BM travel partner
Kelly Linehan (“Hotlips”)... she passed away yesterday, on her wife’s birthday. Cancer.
She was in my original camp Johnny & the Playa Cruizers in the early ‘00s.
Over the years we were in Black Rock Spatial Delivery, her own camp Sparkle Pony Camp, and Fish Out Of Water, which she took over last year.
She was the kind of person who would get coffee at a drive through and have them put whatever the car behind her ordered on her tab.
She was the Land Yacht’s coxswain.
She had a zillion friends - real ones not FB “friends”, and her door was always open whenever you were in town (Portland).
When I went through various life bullshit, she’d let me bitch as much as I wanted and never pointed out when sometimes I might have been the dumbass.

Goddammit....
Kelly will be missed greatly and the world is definitely a darker place without her. I am truly blessed to have met her and gotten to spend time with her at burning man and in default.

Had the honor and privilege to camp next to Kelly last burn. Kelly was such a wonderful and beautiful spirit. I am going to miss her and I hope we can pay tribute to her this burn. Hugs Captain xoxo
