News from the black rock desert
All DPW operations have moved to the burning man site as of today.
Weather is very hot (108 in the shade yesterday) and very hazy.
The playa looks great. There's about 200 people out here, all working at building the
city, or working on major art installations. The perimeter fence is complete, all the roads
and street signs are up, and all theme camp placement has been surveyed.
The cafe rigging will be completed today, with only the shade (38,000 square feet of it!)
and decorations to go. The platform for the man is
about half way constructed.
My camp, the Playa Commissary, fills most of the bloack between Mainmast and Mizzen,
from 165 degrees to 180 degrees. I am camped in a Coachman RV that is at about
170 degrees just inward from Mizzen. Please come find me when you get out here and
say hello! Anyone camped at the Commissary will know where to find me -- I might
even have a radio.
Only 18 days until cleanup,
