What I like about this, aprt from the thing that it just looks so kewl... is how simple it is to make, transport and set up. The old time carnies would have made great theme campers.

Now, we'll start mulling over the exhibits inside!!

We were only at SF decom for a couple hours, just to stop in a bit before going to another event. SF Decom was pretty wimpy this year.... there was maybe one MV, hardly any theme camp set ups... pretty thin. Reno Decom on the other hand is going to be quite the amazing event... far exceeding. I saw your name on the MV list, and Foxfur... are you confirmed?

Reno Decom was a huge success! There was a beef about the hired security, doing searches in theme camp areas and vehicles, which they likely had no jurisdiction to do for vehicles... but that's another matter. Besides that, the event was super well attended... we had around a dozen mutant vehicles, a load of theme camps, lots of fire!!!! Went all night...

We set up a theme camp tent, and did a Spin to Win a Corn Dog Game... was hell of a lot of fun. Found a juggler from New York.

The RV area was pretty much full. Nice advantages to doing event on a big chunk of private property in the old industrial section.

Far and away better than SF Decom this year.

btw, the avatar is part of a clever guerilla marketing campaign for a new line of playa hair care products.

it's called Hair-M...

Hey there, Herr Kolonel, you don't know Hernan Cortez? He did Burning Man with me many years ago, but I am not sure that he's been going lately.

KK, I wasn't registered of confirmed but Rambette was allowed to park on Virginia Street!

Why yes, that is playa dust.
Though she didn't make it to the burn at least she got to play on the playa beforehand.

I usually run into bunnies before getting to Reno...

Dave King's Liquid Shooter.jpg

I was under the impression that the liquid shooter shot 8 gallons of gasoline / oil mixture 110 feet high but was informed that it did not use 8 gallons of gasoline / oil mixture because the permit did not include 8 gallons of gasoline / oil mixture so what you're seeing is not 8 gallons of gasoline / oil mixture. It is also not 110 feet high as the permit said something about 40 feet. This picture is full of illusions and does not really exist.
STOP HALLUCINATING, you are at work!

Compression was really fun.

Foxy, I have a pic of you at Reno Compression. You Are standing on the backside of the stage up high (on a ledge or scaffolding). I took the picture from the west side of the grassy knoll. I thought it might be you because of your vest. I wanted to come around and say hello but was feeling a lil shy at the time.

Anyhoo, when I put the pics on my computer and enlarged it...yep it's you. It's my stalker picture of you :shock:
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Oh my God, you stalked Foxfur. :lol: That is so cute!1!

(I get tongue-tied too, though. I know how it is.)

I love the Compression crew. They are so kind to allow me to be the spazzy little mascot they never asked for :roll:

Obviously I recognize you and Foxfur. :lol: I'm saying that the gentleman on the left, in the sunglasses, I do not recognize for the moment.

(My least favorite thing about the Meet & Greet every year is the fact that I am bad with faces because--thanks to this medium--I have a better memory for usernames, avatars and personalities.)
