Thanks to your help and support, Rigged to Flip made it to the playa, and I toured it around a fair bit. Sadly, the suspension wasn't really beefy enough to handle a bunch of people, so we were kind of limited as to loading it up as the floating party I had hoped for. I would also recommend against using a clutch system on the playa, at least in the city. Kind of a hassle, part of the charm, and thank you for your support. I gave a lot fewer rides than I wanted, including most of you, and gave out fewer beers because of it.
Let me know where I can send you a photo! I'm still looking for a really good shot of the raft, and am hoping that a great one will surface as people decompress and get their pics up. All in all, a great experience, a mostly successful attempt, some kinks to work out, and a fun year all around.
