The  Scott Parenteau metal pod

Last year, Walt Grams the builder of the "Guerkin" shattered his foot erecting this shade structure

A true burner, Walt came back this year to build again one of the nicest landmark of the city,
the Gherkin.


"The Red Bar Camp" from Boise

Double layer of shade fabric

Dude is taking a nap

Original metal frame structure

Reminds me of a Victorian glasshouse

I was so delighted to see these three Playahuts. When I asked the young burner who built them with his girlfriend, he told me that he got inspired by looking at the 2013 Golden Rebar entry of this blog.
He made my day, I was so happy, at least my blog helped built, in a tiny fashion, the city.

Good way to spend the evening

Delta Shade  at "Camp Love Land",  a structure designed first by Bogdanov and Bogdanov at Disorient

I dedicate this image to Christina Nellemann writer for Tiny House blog who suggested me to document showers in the city. A 20 minutes after our conversation I saw this colorful shower.
A perfect example of serendipity was to find out that my closest neighbors were Christina and her husband who setup camp near mine without knowing it. Because we focus on the same topic at BRC we know each other only through comments and email. It was a wonderful surprise to finally meet in the flesh.

"Cult of Koitus camp"

On K street, nearby the clamping camps camp with "Miracle" art car

"Giddy Up camp" super nice guys.

"Open Range camp"
I have a soft spot for this type of camp. It remind me the early time of BRC when it was more about D.I.Y camp and free spirit.

New skool versus old school

Shade cloth structure, great for the sun, porous to the rain.

The Wide Awake Oasis
Suddenly the view of trees and green lawn, even fake, bring a new feeling in the neighborhood.
To protect the Playa from Astroturf glued to the playa when it rain thus creating a MOOP issue it is recommended to lay it over a tarp.

Superb PVC pipe shelter (sorry I forgot the name of its builder)

Van Brink/ Lerner domes with wood struts and Starplate connectors in the foreground and PVC pipe struts in the background at camp Hiburnia

Thought for sure you'd miss "Starport" the lounge at the airport built by The Black Rock Travel Agency.
Thanks for coming out!
