We're out on playa @ 6:20(ish) 600 feet from The Man!
If you are on 6:00 heading from Center Camp towards The Man, we're on the inner circle (closer to The Man), second effigy to the left. Come see YOUR project!
I have been informed that with the last minute "push" to get our merry-go-round finished and out here, the stickers and pendants may not have made it out to you in time before you yourself leave for Burning Man. We will get those to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
See you Thursday night!
Hello awesome backers of CarouShell!
I'm sorry for the long delay between updates. I personally have been quite busy, in fact I'm already in Gerlach, NV, the town closest to where Black Rock City (the place where CarouShell will be displayed, rode, pushed around, interacted with, and ultimately set ablaze) WILL be built, getting ready to help set up that magical place that is home to Burning Man.
The "Golden Spike" (the exact location of where The [Burning] Man itself will be built) goes into the desert this Sunday! Survey of Black Rock City starts the day after! Soon we will know the exact latitude, longitude of where CarouShell will be placed!
CarouShell's tower is up! (I'm waiting to be emailed pictures and as soon as I have them, I will post them here.) We're getting more and more San Diegans to our build parties on weekends. If you have the time, please come on by to at least say "Hi" if not help work on YOUR project!
I will be emailing all y'all shortly regarding your Thank You gift for your donation.
Thank YOU so much for helping to make CarouShell a reality! I'm excited! I hope you are too!
If you want to get in touch with me, please either send me a message here or contact me at dpw.stinger(at)gmail(dot)com.
Again, Thank YOU!
