I second that! And, it is a "Pub Crawl" on the playa, fer cryin in a bucket. Accuracy is a relative thing, inversely related to sobriety. Really, I could show you a graph! All scientific like.

Ahmen! I doubt most people will be sober able to operate a blacklight without falling over anyway.

Being that big of a tease.... well... its just unseemly!! ;)

The problem is it’s my address and I have no idea where I will be now.
What’s the point of doing this if my location is the only one who is not on the card?
This is the 2nd time the ball got dropped on me by people that was suppose to be in charge.

It could be worse

Well Moz,

This should put it all into perspective. Yesterday, during the hopfully last of the sea trials for Tub with 5 souls on board, as we were talking to some neighbors who were enamered by the Tub, with the Tub not even moving, just sitting there( I, know this is a horrible run on sentence). BAM, out of nowhere, it takes off in full spin mode off the side of the road, narrowly missing the 20 foot drop off to the creek below. Thankfully no-one was injured, but the front of the Tub isn't quite as round as it should be and two thirds of the electronics are up in smoke(literally). I guess the electronics manufacturer's got some splanin' to do. Seven months of non-stop fabrication halted by bad electronics design and smoky transistors.

Anyway's my point is, we WILL still bring a safe and functioning Tub to the Playa no matter what! Damn the smoky transistors! Full speed ahead! Don't let the bastards get you down. It'll still happen, and it'll still be a GREAT FUCKING TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers,

Cap'n o the Tub

Awww MozY....
Bring the cards...find out where ya gonna be on playa...go post a secret password for all of us who would know ....could know et the center camp info booth.

I just got back from the playa...Its Crazy there too...this is a huge thing for a bunch of volunteeers and very small payroll peeps to complete in a stoned matter of time.
The playa is 2x's bigger! then Ive ever seen it!

Its the Playa....we'll do THE CRAWL!....A street is pedestrian only this year... so all those Bars on frontage of A street...the Mutant vehicles cant travel down there, we'll have to park on esplande dirt side.
No problems...we hoof it a little, shit this is burningman, who hasnt hoofed it when ya missed your ride or your bike broke.

So MozY...when you get there ...go to the artery(this is easiest way to get you a placer)....Tell them I need a placer to place me, high traffic, low traffic/loud/quiet...whatever you preference. They'll see if there are any more up front property that has been canceled or what not....standby camp so to speak.

They can help you get close to the area's you had in mind.

And sweetheart...its only burningman...we have fun no matter what or what not happens!
This didnt get built or that changed plans...no big...guidelines folks...guidelines!
You are who we all wanna see...the art is only frostin' the cake my friends is you guys....the hearts and souls and the energy of burningman people radiates down the streets and into the open playa. You feel the art and the love and the soul touching.

Its beatuiful out there...and the weather report I gave is only what it is right now....Titwi said looks good for the week coming!
WOO hOOO
So see....there is a santa clause!
We shall set forth on our homemade gotcarts/pirateships put forth our eye patch and steal the queens gold ..arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I tell ya!
It'll be a good bounty of good ju-ju this year!

Live learn Love Burn repeat

Mozy -

We don't care that it's not perfect.

I promise to take a placement person's name in vain at each pub location.
And drink to them getting athlete's foot.
And hope that every time they need ice it will be sold out.

I am really looking forward to the Pub Crawl.

Let me know if I can help in some way.

Mozy....

First off, a HUGE freakin THANK YOU for all of the time and effort you have put into this.

I'll be camped here http://www.jimhillas.org/spankyswinebar.html

but way in the back so I'll be taking over the corner of 5 and A. Anything you need feel free to stop by.

Cards would have been cool... but in the end they are just swag... back in the default world it's the memories of all the great times that never fade.

Yep…

It’s Burning Man after all. Things are always subject to change until the last second. For me, I’ll know I’m heading to the playa for certain when I pull out and point the truck hood away from the rising sun. I’ll know I’ll be at Burning Man when I pull onto the playa and drop anchor.

All the rest is just hard work, speculation and the best planning I can do with the information I have at hand. I’ll take it as I can get it.

You should bring it on anyways, Mozy. No sense in letting a little kink throw you. Nothing that a sign in the proper place couldn’t cure should you find its not possible to camp where you had originally intended.

That's a perfect idea. Put a big sign up with a forwarding address.

I'm still in thrash and panic mode. My RV has been doing the dreaded Chevy won't-start-when-hot thing, and I got stranded last night 40 miles away, had to get a ride home late at night and yank the starter from my Chevy truck at home (cuz where are you gonna get one late Sunday night!) and go back to the RV and put it in to get it home... at about 2:30 AM.
Tonight I put in a Ford starter solenoid and bigger cables, seems cured... so far...
I also put manifold gaskets in, but they still leak and it sounds "ghetto" as hell. I'm out of time to deal with that, I can make it there like that.
The boat isn't ready either! AAAUUUGGHhhh!!!!

I had a car do that and it was the starter alignment.
Someone had left the alignment plate off.
I moved the starter slightly and carefully aligned it.
Fixed.
It was jamming the solenoid.

55 saves gas! We'll be there by Saturday.


Cheers all, see you at the Black Sabkha. Check Playa Info for the CBI.

Guess what? We're going to Burning Man!

lighting

Postby Picasso » Sat Aug 23, 2008 8:34 pm

Will have some color kinetics color change led spots inside. On the out side is color kinetics white led spot lights to light up the outside. Also use them for headlights.

On the front will be a large color led arrary.


The whole thing is drive by wire. The rocket is electric.

Are you bouncing them off the side?

Is it reflective or translucent on the sides?
Looks like you can do wonderful things with that body at night.

It was great meeting you Mozy! Thanks for the superb rum. Sorry for taking the first round as a shot; I'm from the moonshine tavern, we don't dare sip. :twisted:

Oh, and to everyone we sent to the med tent and/or hospital..... sorry. :wink:
