I got conditional approval to bring Pigarus to the playa! Here it is at the moment

Here's the base. It's a Jazzy motorized chair with the chair removed and a cradle to support the pig Image

Here's an overall view. Main body is a 55 gal food barrel, ends are shaped out of chicken wire.
Image

Here's the hind-quarters. I tried a few things along the way including starting from a cardboard shape and adding a foam product that I thought would enable me to smooth the surface. Neither worked terribly well, but you can see the remains of the attempts inside the chicken wire. They won't cause any difficulties. Since then I've been free-forming the chicken wire and if I do need to fill areas to even them out I'll use bondo or something between fiberglass layers
Image

Here's the head view. I have some faceted glass that I expect to light up with LEDs and use for eyes.
Image

Rider will straddle the barrel and control using the standard controls of the chair base.

Remaining to do:
Right front trotter
Possibly more shaping of both front trotters
Fiberglass
Wings
Paint
Lights - head lights and tail lights will mount directly to base. Wings will be lit with color-changing LEDs.
Cover for base

Really cool, Swampdog! I can definitely see where that's going! :D I look forward to seeing the finished product. Does the rider sit astride the pig? Does it seat more than one?

Savannah, yes the driver straddles the pig. Might be able to seat 2, but I'm not counting on it. I still haven't figured how to do wings.

maybe you could make a little trailer that looks like a mild stool and put handles on the pigs haunches, for riders?

I wonder what a pig would pull around, if it was really in the mood to be nice . . .

He IS flying. Perhaps a cloud?

Sorry that we're trying to make your job harder, Swampdog. :lol:

I mean that the lines of communication have been cut, that it's a rough journey over river and swamp and mountain and through wild animals and all sorts of other horrors, besides the mere washed out road, that it will take weeks for the truth to be known.

Hey gang!

Love the flying pig you're building swampdog! Please post more images as things progress, it is always inspirational to see these projects as they develop.

I've been swamped with work the last few days. Usually this time of year things slow down, but last year it stayed busy all summer, and this summer seems to be shaping up to be the same. Gotta find more time for burn prep.

Oh, and a belated Happy Birthday Lucky and Adam!

*pours drinks for all*

I hope moonrise is gaining his strength back more each day!

Good morning all! Saw a little of the road damage up by Gerlach on the news last night. The power of flash floods is quite impressive...

Thank you again to everyone for the birthday wishes.

Hope everyone has a lovely day today.

Oh and I'm going to see Spark this evening. YAY!

yeah, that must have been some rain!! I'da loved to have been out there in it. I got caught in a couple of those, over the years out there. Damn impressive. The materials flowing can look like concrete coming down a gully, lots of force and abrasion.

really, as bad as that looks, I'm sure NDOT could get it in a few days, if prompted.

Looneytune and I are delivering radio tower segments today, for a super secret playa project, to Sacramento.

So great to see everyone's enthusiasm building. 8) I am getting excited again.

Oh Yggy NIH= National Institutes of Health, huge federal medical research agency, their headquarters are near here and their huge campus includes an actual hospital where all the patients are study subjects. Excellent care and a beautiful place. My brother is lucky to be eligible for treatment there.

Hey yggy, NDOT is ON it.

It'll be repaired by next Wednesday. Your estimate is correct.

Hey Bar! Got a message from the work ranch that they are now getting through on 447! Good work NDOT!

Sorry you're losing a good tenant, Yiggy - it is nice to be able to pick your neighbors.
