Short Summary

I had a vision one night on the Playa last year after an encounter with several random groups. I had a 8 person art car and alot of people I taxied around said they could not get on the other big art cars. Well this kinda stinks because I had the same thing happen my first year on the Playa too. This vision involves a bus, tons of lumber, metal, welding, paint, and a all to make a LARGE CARGO area called a flight deck. NOT JUST DANCING and MUSIC EITHER I want to see maybe a fire conclave ride aboard one night doing shows then maybe one night be a slumber party with chill music, PJs and pillows all over the deck. Open your mind and give me input as to what is imaginable what is possible here. Hell I could even host the first plane landing on a carrier in the BRC ever. Well RC flying of course. Skydiver target area (maybe if someone arranged for it). The ideas are endless and with the communities help, and funding, it can be what YOU want it to be used for...like a bacon cook off at the trash fence on Friday at Sunset. But I SOOO want to just build it. What it is used for is up to the ones on the deck at the time.
Please help with the ideas, the donations, and the funds and we will see you in on the Playa 2013-)'(-

What We Need & What You Get

The bus has been obtained so we just need help with these materials and transport support to Black Rock City, North of Reno, NV.

We will use the funds to get the following elements for the build:

-8200--lumber and steel for framing and decking for the flight deck/Hull and Tower

-600--hardware for securing flight deck (bolts, screws,ect)

-6200--Fuel & tranport fees (trailered by big rig to Playa for safe&secure shipment/I don't have CDL needed for air brakes on highway)

-300--Insurance for transport (When traveling from the Playa to storage, it has to be street legal)

-1000--Storage in the off season (location will never be disclosed...sorry)

-1350--Maintaince (tires/annual oil changes/brake inspections/over all keep it safe in transit and on the Playa)

-2500--Lights and lighting elements

-3600--sound elements

-2000--safety equip(fire ext/safety lights/ALL STOP alarm system/Rear&side cameras/Crew radios/first aid stations)

The Impact

The greatest gift is a wonderful memory. I would build it for the people and have a bitching platform for 50+ people at a time to dance the night away in deep playa ops. NOT JUST DANCING and MUSIC EITHER I want to see maybe a fire conclave ride aboard one night doing shows then maybe one night be a slumber party with chill music, PJs and pillows all over the deck. Open your mind and give me input as to what is imaginable what is possible here. Hell I could even host the first plane landing on a carrier in the BRC ever. Well RC flying of course. Skydiver target area (maybe if someone arranged for it).

But I SOOO want to just build it. What it is used for is up to the ones on the deck at the time.  No matter what the occupunts choose to do at any given monent will surely make a memory that could last a life time-)'(-
