Posted by Merrilee in Burning Man, Projects.

The posting title gives it away, but Keith in fact met the deadline. I was too tired to go down to the shop at midnight for a ride (plus the prospect of hauling Karydis out of bed added nothing to my motivation), but Keith did in fact get the pumpkin running, with all the batteries and running gear neatly contained in a clever box that our friends Eric and Paula built.

I go to the shop today to get my “ride” (which consisted of going backwards and forwards in place in the shop). I spent the whole day at the shop, working on helping to bend ribs, painting, and measuring.

The seat still needs to be mounted, the final steering mechanism needs to be finished (this task is in Greg’s capable hands), the ribs need to be mounted, lights need to be affixed…. There is a lot of work remaining, but it all somehow seems doable. I hope to get down there tomorrow to take care of some painting and other tasks. The current plan is to finish tomorrow and to spend Sunday loading. We’ll see!

Awesome, I was really worried about this and I’m glad Keith made the deadline. Can’t wait to see some more photos!
