ahem...the "secret source", as right-clicking and selecting "properties" on photos can often magically unearth :D

Hey the Kinetic Sculpture Camp sounds super!

Here's a photo of the KazBus. It is not human-powered, but a couple of
KSR VIPs are affiliated with it, so we will probably have the KSR Kamp
next to it.

oops, sorry, :oops: I should have realized that...anyways the ihpva site seems to be down, I can't get on there at all at the moment.

The KazBus is beautiful! I made some progress on my newest tall trike today, cut and welded some of the fork bits and dreamed of pedaling across the playa soon.

Haha, edit to poke at Elliot's thump rant...I'm a music lover and love the thump! thump! thump! Will soon go out and play Madonna's "Hung Up" at full volume heheheh :mrgreen:

I'm posting this in response to the piano picture a couple of posts up --
same idea; bicycles minus front wheels pushing a platform with a
passenger on it. Life is good!

Must say thanks to Elliot for making this wonderful device of transportation for us in Camp Herring! It really worked well once we learned how to steer it.

"Rex" joining us!

Postby Elliot » Fri Dec 08, 2006 7:11 pm

Wonderful news:

It seems near certain that Allen Brown of Corvallis, Oregon, will be joining us.
Here is a photo of his "Frogosaurus Rex". He has other Kontraptions
also, and he loves giving rides!

Hi Unjonharley,
I'm not sure what you mean. But if you are thinking a parade around Black Rock City, then that is something we should definitely do -- maybe daily!

Cruising the gut was a 50s thing. You come out to show your street rod or duse. Cruse the chicks. Go to the to of popcorn hill to look at the stars.:). with your one and only.:). AND start the next "generation"

Of course! I was just thrown by the local term - "gut"?!

CRUISING is obviously going to be a daily ritual for most of us, starting shortly after sunset. :D

Good idea, Unjonharley. But not during the Critical Tits Ride, as I hope to have several Kontraptions in that. "Henry Ford Goes Surfing" and "Bounce For Glory" were in the CTR this year -- two ladies in our camp rode "Henry" and Peter gave a lady a ride on "Bounce." ("Bounce" being mighty difficult to learn to ride on short notice.) But yes, day cruising also. Looks like we are going to make it an Official Theme Camp, so we can get everything in the program.
Are you going to camp with us, Unjonharley?

Might be an idea to offer transportion for CT.. Or a wedding party.. Lets not forget to invite all decorated bicycles.. After all they are kinectic art also..

I think I will be camping alone this year.. Don't know if grand father can do the trip. I want to be in a location that will be central to my gig.. Which is mooping a good part of each day..


Hope to doll up the Musical Moop Machine. Maybe a 1954 pink Caddie rear fender and a jute box cut out on the front.. No I'm not wearing the poddle skirt.

Yep. Yep. Yep. I linked up with the Art Bicycle folks this year and we did a little parade. The organizer of that turned out to be a KSR'er from Arcata. It all fits so nicely together.

On the subject of mooping; the Kazbus camp had a moop and grey water problem when it came time for most of them to get to work the next day, so I volunteered to take care of the entire camp site. So I spent almost a day sifting grey water and so forth. Strangely enough, I did not mind it -- it was such a small price to pay the fabulous week. So I just volunteer with DPW for three days of cleanup in 2007. (After we finish our KSR Kamp! That all fits together also!

Movies we will have!
I have four short films from KSRs: Arcata To Ferndale 1992, 1994 and 2005; and Baltimore 2003. And fifth film coming my way. About 20 minutes each. And I have a projector. We showed some of these films on the side of my bus at the Ventura KSR in October. And something similar was shown at the camp ground in Corvallis in July. We could indeed set up a "drive in" style theatre, and you just volunteered! :lol:

Eillot movies would be good.. But to save your time,. There is a thread about movies and bring your film.. That way you would not have to be spread out to much.
