Burning Man 2010 Part 2

A fair part of the second day was spent assembling the Sistine Scaffold, our mutant vehicle, and then waiting at DMV. Here we are before the maiden voyage at Burning Man.  White upstairs, everything else down below, it is Metropolis after all:

Kinda reminds me of a band photo:

Here is a video of the mutant vehicle:

While we were waiting at DMV I rode around the playa a bit.  Here is a late afternoon view of the man:

Then I swung back by DMV to see if the red tape had been cleared up.  It is a cool place to hang out because all the mutant vehicles waiting to be licensed are parked there:

Nice wheels:

Infinitarium by Big Art looked a little different at night:

On my first visit to the playa I discovered that Burning Man is a huge costume party.  I was pretty dark at night that first year, so  this year I wanted a good night costume.  Spoke lights on the bike and a outlined set of clothes made me very visible at night.  The second night I wanted to show off the costume so I stayed on my bike and rode along with the mutant vehicle.  There is a short clip of me on the bike in the video planned for part 5.  Stay tuned there will be more. . .
