Hey folks — Hope you are all having a super fantastic summer. Burning Man is less than 30 days away! Wahooooo! The pre-playa construction crew is building away in South Lake Tahoe. Thanks and a big shout-out to all those who have been working to help with the construction, the folks that have donated materials, time, labor, and ideas… YOU GUYS ROCK!
It would be greatly appreciated if anyone in the area can join Gordy AND CREW on Tuesday nights. We have lots of jobs from painting to nailing, to assembly and a whole bunch of other stuff that needs to be done. The exterior design is complete and with a few last minute changes, it will be off to the printer. I think it is AMAZING! Julio, my graphic artist in North Dakota, has captured the creativity and vision that I was looking for. I was going to post the designs, but think it better to surprise you all on the playa..and for those not going, you can see the pics when we get back!
We need to verify the playa construction team count so there is no mistake with regard to who needs to have an early admin pass. THIS IS IMPORTANT. If you would, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words “EARLY ADMIN PASS NEEDED” in the subject.
I will be in S. Lake Tahoe to help with the final pre-playa construction. I’m going to leave with a small number of people to deliver materials and get all the final approvals and stuff from the ARTery on Aug 23. People that are coming to help with playa construction should plan on coming on the 24th.
Last year I purchased a bike in Tahoe from a guy close to Niobe. If anyone knows of someone with a cheap but functional bike — please let me know. BTW, we have 3 trucks heading to the playa (one of which I will be keeping). If you need anything brought out — let me know. I’m happy to help and should have the room to accommodate some extra stuff.
One final note: We have raised over $5,000 on kickstarter to date. Donations in any amounts will increase the number of contributors and will be hugely appreciated. And if you have not seen the video — please check it out — you may see some friendly faces from last year.
Thanks again for all your support. Look forward to seeing you all on the playa.
