ALERT MODERATORS: We know who you are..
Yes. This project is debated on the 2012 MV forum but it also involves bikes, pedestrians and several known zombies. Not only MVs.
So please don’t move this thread. And for all people using renewable energy based transportation at Burning Man. Attention. We want to meet.
What we have in mind is a parade Thursday 30 August around 17-19 and the invitation goes out to all that use transportation solutions powered by a renewable energy source. Besides MVs we’d love to see lots of bikers, tri-bikes, unibikes, stilt walkers, pedestrians, strippers and... well, just about anybody that is powered by a renewable energy source to get from A to B.
The route is shaped as a "CO2" to visualize a question we all face. With the help of a Smartphone App participants in the parade can be followed live on the web and function as live “brushes” with the playa functioning as a huge "canvas".
To see what the painting can look like here is a CO2 painting we did in Copenhagen in August 2011: http://gilvader.dk/co2erace/event0011.html
We are aware that mobile reception in BRC is not very reliant but there are ways to work around this. And it is by NO means a must to download the APP to join the parade. And if you happen to know the solution don't hesitate to let us know. We're Danish.
We’ve asked on the 2012 MV list what the interest is and equally like to hear what bikers and other burners has to say about the idea.
What do you think? Wanna come? We’ll make sure there’s music and alcohol. You just be sure to be there..

ps: The route can be made longer and shorter. It can also be placed on the open playa.
