Another Damn Texan

Postby CaverX » Mon Nov 15, 2010 11:22 pm

Howdy! I have been lurking the list for a long time, and joined signed up last year. I have been wanting to go to BM for years. This year, I am buying a ticket.
I like to play with fire, I am a firespinner, and I like to build things to make big flames. Image

For my first Flipside, I built a covered wagon, as part of a theme camp, and as my main camping structure: Image it is not completely assembled in this photo, but you get the idea.
I am hoping to connect with burners in my area of Lubbock, Tx.
Every year I see the photos of all the cool installations, and wish I had been there. This year, I am cant wait to see what unfolds, and am really hoping the Pier happens. http://eplaya.burningman.com/viewtopic.php?t=37226
I also live in an almost perfect proving ground for BM structures, as high winds in the spring are almost guaranteed.
It is November, and I can't wait. The man burns in 291 days.

Hi Servo, and Moonrise.
As far as I know there is no established community in Lubbock, but I know there are burners here, including someone on staff with the borg, but we have yet to meet. I hope to be involved in connecting the dots here, to get some things happening.

I love your covered wagon--what a creative way to make a monkey hut look fun. (I'm sure someone has done it before in the history of the Burn--but I've never seen it.) :)

Hot dry air will suck all the water out of your body. Its hard to notice because you usually don't sweat. so bring twice as much water as you think you need and salty snacks. you will sweat out your body salts too. Welcome.

I'm in Texas but by now everyone on ePlaya knows how much I hate Texas (except most of Austin, which really isn't Texas anyway) so they're letting me in.

Hell, they even let me volunteer in Media Mecca.

No, I talk like the pretentious, pompous New Englander I am, with a bit of the Brooklyn I miss. :)

I don't say "y'all," own jeans, like barbeque, drink, drive a truck, vote Tea Party/GOP ...

I'm firmly grounded in reality, but being in Texas I generally keep my science-loving, atheist, liberal Yankee ways to myself.

The funny thing is, not really. It works so well that I have had little motivation to spruce it up.
Since the original build, I have redone the sides due to weather, but have not done the last little touches to make
it shine. It has slipped off my to-do list, I will put some thought into this!
