I have been having a great time working on my Burn2 build, pedaling around the playa looking at other peoples’s ones, and like that. Also taking pictures!
Here I am on my bike, returning from a notional quick trip back to civilization for more chocolate and apparently stuffed animals:
Entering along the road from the notional last outpost of civilization, there’s some nice monumental stuff as one comes onto the Playa, including the DMV.
The DMV folks seem to be working on some cool vehicles; but I like my classic Arcadia Asylum Hobo bicycle.
The Rangers are the best dug-in people on the playa so far; they got here first, after all.
Their dome is quite a landmark. And they have bunches of buildings!
I just hope us builders are rambunctious enough to give them something to do. :)
Finally there’s my box in the middle distance!
It’s a longish pedal. (I wonder if that is another ranger dome on the horizon there.)
Home at last:
That day I hung some cloth from the wooden awning there to keep the sun off, and made flags of my own with the Burn2 logo (and mine are Free To Copy, unlike Some People’s!), and met one of my next-camp neighbors.
Also sometime recently, an adorable little stoat or vole or sloth or something waddled through curiously:
and I’ve now pretty much finished off the place! The first draft, anyway. :) And I thought of a name.
So here is Ten Thousand Things Camp:
The Blue truck and Red building in the background are not mine (although the shadow cast on the ground by the red building is, heehee). Nor is the wooden platform and stuff across the road.
Nor is the streetsign, that’s infrastructure. Apparently I am at the corner of Seoul and 6:00. Okay!
The Big Box and the Round Striped Tent-thing and the Awning and Old Car and Comfy Seats and Infoboxes and Fire Swirls and Random Junk are all mine, though. :) Many will be Free To Copy when the place opens and you come by!
The way that can be trodden is not the eternal way.
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the beginning of Heaven and Earth.
The named is the mother of the Ten Thousand Things.
And now there’s less than a month left until Opening Day.
Plenty of time to fiddle with the build and peddle around nosing into other people’s. :)
