When we last saw our intrepid crew, they were in the middle of teardown of the Charnival. Today, we see them finish teardown of the Charnival, and start combing the desert for MOOP.
Darq combs the desert.
S, Greg, & Kosta take a break, while Seth rides up and NekoBus looks on.
l-r: Trevyn, Felix (?), S, ?
S: “I found this guy hiding in one of the benches!”
NekoBus heading home in the evening.
The Sunday night Temple Burn is a very emotional and spiritual experience for many.
Ships’ masts are much lighter this way.
The tradition of geometric-shaped art cars continues. Here we see the Square Pyramid and Projected Icosahedron.
After one last *FOOM* from Medusa, it was time for bed!
This is a long and painstaking process. Somehow, I didn’t take any pictures of this. Imagine raking an area of desert the size of a football field under the blazing sun. But Leave No Trace is that important.
Last time, we saw our intrepid crew teardown the last of Mirror Blaze. Today, the rest of the Charnival!
M & M work on disassembling Francis the Fantastic.
E looks on as C ‘rolls the fence’.
M & C are caught in an instant of slow-time.
The furious dissasembly of Riskee Ball continues!

Splat takes a break in the shade while Mike surveys his packing of Francis.
The Riskee Ball dissassembly crew, hard at work. l-r: Mike, Andrea, Steph(?), Kosta, NekoBus, Greg.
Splat surveys what is left of the skin on his fingers.
Last time, we followed our intrepid adventurers as they continued the teardown of Mirror Blaze. Today, we follow them as they complete this task.
MF & GL walk by the remaining upright parts of Mirror Blaze.
The non-mirror parts of Mirror Blaze.
Fire and acrylic mirrors. Sometimes they have an effect on each other.
Greg and splat work on the final mirror!
And the lifeguard chair comes down!
l-r: Lifeguard Stand, Stepstool, Flamey, Quartz Tube, Charnival Sign, Mirror Posts.
Flamey side view. Note the use of rebar, and the large amount of non-flammable fabric and teflon used to protect the quartz tube.
Note the aluminum foil protecting the wiring.
S, G, & M bring down the last part of the lifeguard stand. Done!
B stands triumphant with Flamey.
Still arduous, but took about 1/3 as long as putting it together (not including MOOP sweep).
