Burning Man Ticket Kerfuffle and Continued Progress

There seems to be quite a mess with the Burning Man ticket distribution this year.  Burning Man has an official release on their blog about it.  As far as I know only two of the Feast building crew managed to get tickets so far.  I know I didn't.  

I'm not sure exactly how things are going to go down.  As you can imagine this bike will take a lot of work to bring up to Burning Man, so I can't promise that it will make it with a skeleton crew.  I temporarily stopped the Burning Man-based rewards.

For those that have already paid for Burning Man rewards, let's just wait a little bit of time before you worry.  The BMorg is on it.  Hopefully there will be a fantastic solution that results in everyone who wants tickets getting them.  Either way, we'll figure out a reward that will make everyone happy.

Now, rest assured, we are continuing to build the bike.  This is going to be a phenomenal piece of art, usable around town or at Kinetic Sculpture contests.  I just bought $600 in assorted drivetrain equipment.  We're going to pick up 10 or so bicycles from a police auction to cannibalize for parts.  I did some preliminary flea market shopping for table top accoutrements this weekend.  I'm really looking forward to that part of the project.

Thanks everyone for your support!  We're still shooting for $4k for the project so we don't have to make compromises on the artistic side of things.  If you want to further support, it's as easy as linking via facebook, or tweeting, or whatever the kids are using these days.  Thanks again!

      I'm more confident about the chances of The Feast making it to Burning Man, so I've re-opened up the BM based rewards.
