Two pictures taken with a normal camera and then combined into one. Here's how.

My camp and parachute sun shelter
My Parachute Sun Shelter
The parachute shelter is the same as last year. I just trimmed the ends of the PVC pipes and bought 12 couplers and reused them; the pipes were made a little long last time for that purpose.
When you buy PVC couplers get the water pipe kind; they are longer and stronger than the electric conduit kind.
To furl a parachute in a heavy wind just free all the leeward cords and haul the canopy to windward. Tie it in a long bundle against the ground and it will be fine. Do not furl it to leeward; just trust me on that. :(

Bike wheel fouled with playa mud
Bike Mud
Friday night I took my bike out for a ride. It rained. Once the wheels stop turning they just do not turn again. I thought of just going home and buying a new bike, but there is a 'leave no trace policy' so I dragged it two miles back to camp. Met many other people doing the same. Did not propose a drag race.

This is Me on Saturday morning after dragging bike. Just cleaned my glasses; they will not stay that way long.

Bare bodies in a dust storm
Mass nu de photograph
Spencer Tun ick (with ladder) managed to get several hundred na ked people to lay down in a freezing dust storm for another mass nu de photograph.
I got a spot near the front this time, but it was way too close. When the print arrived months later the only signs of me were my feet in the lower right corner.

CD fried by Tesla coil
Tesla Fried CD
This is a CD that was fried by the Tesla coil. Two big Tesla coils
Dr. MegaVolt held it in his hand and a fat blue spark just blew the foil layer right off. You can see where his stainless steel mail clad thumb was. Note the odd little scars in the plastic where the electricity passed. He tossed it to the ground and I was the favored one who snatched it first.
His underlings gave out some cool temporary tattoos too.
His Web site is drmegavolt.com
