Staff camp seeks Art Car for a good long ride

Postby toibox » Sat Mar 30, 2013 10:26 am

Newly Single Staff Camp seeks Art Car(s) for mutually beneficial polyvehicular hook-up and possible long-term relationship.

We don't care what your last girlfriend said: size matters. Must be able to accommodate 20-30 riders for dreamy night time fun all over the playa!! If sparks melt our icy hearts, we'd be up for a long-term relationship, with the possibility of a live-in situation. Penguins mate for life, but even a one night stand with us promises some cool rewards. Compatible suitors and interested parties are invited to send pics and stats to toibox23@gmail.com. Let’s hook up and make Ice even hotter.

Why don't you build one yourself? Just a thought. :roll:

We would love to, unfortunately we have found that we are pretty busy with the whole running of Arctica thing. That is why we are looking for other options and opportunities to share resources.

Penguins don't mate for life. Even the gay penguins in the zoo broke up when one of them found a hen. Of course, there are multiple species of penguin.

The culture of this board strongly resists privlege. You are going to get guff-and plenty of it. Perhaps you are getting responces, I dont know. But I think your best bet is to have a mod remove the email address and lock the thread.

just so I understand:

your camp wants someone to bring an art car to go riding on? For mutual fun?
ok, well, no harm in asking.

are you offering anything specific, or just the privilege of partying with you folks?

Do you use "staff" as a descriptive, or, so folks can feel cool hanging with "staff". Does that get you out of any possible kindnesses in return, seeing as you are soliciting? Or is it you work so hard, for "them" that maybe they'd feel good about gifting you their time and car?

Just wondering where this comes from and is heading for?

Well, see, here's the deal.
Big mutant vehicle builders have NO problem finding people willing to ride. In fact it's sometimes hard to control and regulate the number of willing riders.
Really, specifically, what are YOU bringing to the table?!

Art cars and mutant vehicles come up for sale all the time on Craigslist. You can use searchtempest to search many cities, though that indexes listings that may have expired. Obviously ask around your regionals. You need to act quickly to hit the MV registration deadline.

Really? How busy are all of you months prior to Burning Man with the ice-selling? It comes in on reefer trucks from an outside vendor and you guys unload and sell it when it arrives. Sure there's camp to set up, but we ALL do that.

Ok so it doesn't hurt to ask if someone wants to be your chauffeur. You're getting static because taking applications for the privilege of providing you with chauffeur service sounds so arrogant. I'm sure you're all really cool (haha) but that's like some guy sending out applications to hot movie stars to see which one is allowed to come blow him.

We added a welcomed new feature to our downtown Arctica location: additional shade for those standing in line. DPW built us a 12'x48' shade structure on the street side of Arctica.

So, you're saying maybe DPW will build them an art car too?

So, would they be any better received if they had called it a mutant vehicle?

Not much, but at least you'd think "staff" would know art cars have been banned from Burning Man for many years now!

20-30 riders minus stuff is a minimum of a ton to two and a half tons, just sayin'. If you bought a bus, which is not that expensive, you could offset the cost and decrease your carbon footprint by charging a nominal to-from the playa transport fee. YMMV turning a bus into a MV.
