center-camp-9-copyCenter camp is coming along mighty fast. In a little less than two weeks, it’s gone from simply flags in the dusty playa to the king posts being dug to the shade being hung.

Here’s a look at the progress along the way, right up to Friday morning.

    Any confirmation on the rumor of hordes of bugs on the playa this year?

    The rumor is false. It’s swarms of scorpions, which are technically arachnids, so no…there are no hordes of bugs

    Looking good! I may borrow that idea of connecting shade pieces to cables for our shade structure this year. Looks like it enhances airflow and flexes in the wind… good design!
