Sweating the details – and XyloVan’s cruise schedule – for TTITD 2018

factoid

Preparing for Burning Man – the Thing in the Desert – consumes you. You sacrifice all your time to it, and much of your sanity. I’ve been too busy to even blog about this year’s preparations, which have included a slew of new instruments and a complete teardown/rebuild of the Arduino-controlled canopy-light system. As I’m probably overfond of saying, a mutant vehicle is a hole in the playa into which one pours money, blood and tears.

But it’s still a mutant vehicle. And I’ve got a schedule to keep.

So here, this’ll catch you up:


2018 Scheduled Cruises:

Flag me down if you see me and I’ll give you a ride if there’s room!
