. Being a commercial activity and flying in the opposite direction that air traffic is supposed to go when circling Black Rock City, this pissed off some people.

The 747 Is On The Playa

A word from the Captain:

747 on the playa
The 747 rolling past the DPW outpost at Black Rock City.

More photographic proof here.

Now I believe it.

"The Journey" - For 2017

I saw this at a Burner presentation/party Saturday evening in Palm Springs.

The Journey model (0880)
It's a spiral wooden tube that has been bent into a donut
and you can play with it when it's on the playa. 42 feet across. The ring is 10 feet high. The perfect dimensions to attract all sorts of adventurous men who want to play jungle gym. Clothing optionally.

The Journey model (1315)
Although it looks tempting, it will not be burned

The Journey model (0892)

On the interior walkway
. Please to note that the structure had already attracted at least one adventurous man who wants to play jungle gym.

It'll have audio and video, too, that will respond to the environment somewhat. Dan Reeves, the brains behind this, specifically said it would respond to art cars when they approach. I consider that a commitment. Here's what the artist had to say - all becomes clear!

Crowdsourcing to come, he said.

He's looking for volunteers.

Outback Logic Siesta4

I've just received a tent that was designed specifically for the weather conditions at Burning Man, the Outback Logic Siesta4. The reflective exterior is actually a rain fly that is permanently attached to the tent inside. Every vent on it can be sealed to keep out dust. It has two ports where you can insert an electric fan. I have one fan on order. The floor is 7'6" square and I can almost stand up straight in it, so it must be about 5'10" high. Staking it is required in order to get it to hold its shape.

I set it up in the wind and that was easier than setting up my Cabela's Alaskan Guide Geodesic tent in the wind. But the only way to test it against Burning Man strength winds would be to move it out to some open desert on the west side of the city, and I'm not going to do that.

No instructions came with it, and I made only one false start. There are only four fiber glass poles, but they are two lengths, so you've got to lay them all out to be sure you pick the right one.

Nixie Watch

Quite likely, you recall this video from the naked pub crawl at last year's Burning Man. It does contain nudity so, you know, if you don't want to see it, don't click it. It's only to show you this overpowered sound system on a bicycle.

Fast forward to today, and here's Techmoan's review of the new Nixie tube wristwatch.

Here's Steve Wozniak showing off his Nixie watch.

From Techmoan's video I jumped to Cathode Corner where you can buy a Nixie watch. Scroll down that page and whadda ya see? The overpowered bike sound system that I videoed above. In short, the Nixie watch designer was on the naked pub crawl with his loud bicycle.
