When we last saw our heroes, they were flying towards their fiery demise and keeping Curiosity company.
Today, we follow them on their random-walk journey through an eclectic assortment of things that Burning Man has to offer.
First, the (slightly creepy) dancing bears! They seemed just a little *too* happy…:
Found! A public service for all of those lost items. Remember, only MOOP is truly lost (and all lost items are MOOP):
As you may guess, Mad Max is a common decorative theme:
This structure seemed to serve as a warning. Our heroes shied away, after being burned by objects like this in the past:
Needing a breather, they stopped at the Steampunk Saloon:
On their way again, they biked along the Esplanade, marveling in the experience:
Along the way, they passed a strangely-named structure, ‘Edal Bump’:
Going slightly further, it made much more sense:
“Bad Advice”, or “Really Bad Advice”? Which would you choose? Which one would you be more likely to follow? Which would be worse?
And then, in the distance, our heroes spot the destination they didn’t even know they were heading towards, The THUNDERDOME!:
Next time, THE THUNDERDOME! Also, up close and personal with Serpent Mother! Stay tuned!
’Matter Out Of Place’, the reduction of which is central to the ethos of ‘Leave No Trace’, a fundamental ethos of Burning Man. Painstaking inch-by-inch MOOP search and removal is a part of every camp’s responsibility. (Another important part of the ethos is avoiding MOOP, and picking it up anywhere you see it during the festival.)
It does bear an uncanny resemblance to the ‘nuclear waste spike field‘, a hypothetical structure to deal with the very real problem of warning future generations about the problems of nuclear waste.
Not to mention why there were so many bicycles in the area (although there could be many reasons for that at the Burn).
