The Pink Elephant Project - Beau Le'Phant

Camp Upsie Dasium is building a large pink elephant Mutant Vehicle called Beau Le'phant. We are seeking some folks that would like to help us get the extra money it will take to make this a reality. Please check out our Kickstarter at:

Our band GravyBrain has been performing on the playa since 2008. We'd like to add some moving art to our presence this year!

My first concept for the art car, but training the elephant to only drive 5 MPH proved harder than I thought.

We could use some help on our KickStarter to get the elephant home. WOOT

How do pink elephants fair in the rain? Pretty well, as the skin is just like (exactly like) rip-stop nylon. Neither wind nor rain nor dead of night can stop Beau from his appointed rounds!

Folks, please help us out on our project. Let other know about our KickStarter. In the past I had lots of money to build, build, build but have been out of work for over two years now, making ends meet by playing music. This opportunity presented itself and I would love to make it happen for the citizens of BRC. If you know folks that have a little extra scratch, please turn them on to our idea.
Thank you very much, here is the info for our Pink Elephant:

Thanks Galaxo for trying to keep our project alive! We still need support from the citizens of Black Rock City to help us bring Beau to the playa!

Bexx, thank you! We'd love to see that tattoo this year. I am in Santa Cruz with our theme camp mates today discussing camp and artcar.

Beau is getting close to reality. Dangerously close. We did a mock-up with ears and trunk on Friday. It is big, it is awesome, and it will be tied up at home when not roaming the playa. So you can visit it at home, mark down Anniversary near 6:30. Yep, downtown. We also have a 3-story tower in camp, so you can get a birds eye view of Center Camp. Stop by on your way to Artic Ice.
