The Three Broke Dudes have each made it safely back from Burning Man!
As you might have noticed, we haven't updated the dBM blog much since getting back -- I've received a number of emails from readers following the journey asking, "Well, Three Broke Dudes, how did it go?!? What happened with the Boogie Pyramid? Did you see the Man burn early?" etc. etc.
Well, it has been a rough transition for each of us fitting back in to our lives here at home. We're still processing the experience & trying to integrate some of the lessons in to our day-to-day. So, be patient. The storytelling will come. But we're gonna need some time....
Great to see everybody announcing their returns back home -- all safe & sound, if not whacked out, dusty and scrambling for a foothold in this default world...
So the Boogie Universal crew was unanimous in our resolve to keep plugging away on the Boogie Pyramid project and get it in shape so it is a worthy addition to Black Rock City. We're gonna be on the Esplanade and 9:00, and we want to be proud of our contribution. The first erection of the Pyramid revealed several structural flaws, which Erik, Chad, Robin and I got to fixin' last night in a work party that went until dark. We added some "bonus cables, restrung a few seams, incorporated more stakes to pull out the bottom and other nips and tucks, and finally got to raise it half-way to see how it looked in Version 2.0. It was promising, and I feel less anxiety regarding the status of our dream project.
We've got two more work parties scheduled and hope lots of fellow campers will be there to further the makeover work.
I think it is going to work out excellently, just like Erik predicted.
So, the erection of the mast was a smashing success today...
Here's the rough outline of entertainment and general freekiness/geekiness scheduled for the Boogie Pyramid -- come check out the Boogie Universal vibe at 9:00 & Espanade!
I hope you're sitting down, 'cause I got some HUGE news!!!!!!!!!!!more…?
