I learned that ExpressoDude is one hard working, never say quit, don't stop until the job is done type of a guy. He worked with the Black Rock FX team on the Trojan Horse. He brought his SO and the two of them contributed a great deal to that project. We were faced with several adversities and the team managed to work through them all. He never once complained or slowed down. OK, maybe around dinner time he slowed down a little, we all did. We had a small team as most of the BRFX crew were at the Flaming Lotus Girls show. He worked well with the pyro team as well as the demolition/burn team. His ideas and creativity helped make the burn what it was. Black Rock FX would welcome ExpressoDude back on any show we produce.
Thank you Dustdevil Black Rock FX and your team (go ExpressoDude!) for the wildly successful Trojan Horse Burn!
As part of the perimeter guard on the Horse from the time of its pullout till its demise I learned what a challenging, patience-trying, and rewarding job Safety Perimeter is. Most folks were cool with staying back, a few dim bulbs were miffed, diplomacy had to be used on a couple 'but-we-wanna-get-closer-just-for-a-pic' types...and what is it with the ones riding full-speed on a bike right through the crowd into the burn perimeter???!! idiots. But for the great folks who helped and stood in awe at the spectacle, thanks
