Reno, the biggest little city in the world!

The Sands Regency had music playing in the parking lot
View from my balcony
This is the view from my hotel balcony - I never made it down to the pool, but that's where the band struck up on my first afternoon here.
Hotel view at night
This is the view at night - Mel's World Famous diner provides the room service here, and they serve up a mean breakfast.

first signs of the city as we're driving in... you can't really see much in this photo, but it's there.

There he is... the structure around him, a temple, has not yet been completed and people haven't been allowed to climb the steps yet.
IM000444.jpg
The temple is going to be unreal this year... it's nowhere near done at this point, and they'll be working through most nights this week to get it done in time... to be burned!

up through the centre of the temple

there's a lot of really intricate detail in the covering they're putting on this thing.

this thing is huge

Reorient: crazy big psychedelic dome where they play great music and give away booze. I'll probably spend some time here.
IM000457.jpg
this is really cool... it's actually just a vertical strip of flashing lights, but if you look at it and then look away, an image appears... I got it to show on film by shaking the camera to the side as I clicked the shutter.

Day 2 - That's my tent, rental car, and you can kinda see the Playa Cruiser lying on the ground there... with custom-made tiger-print seat covering!

This is the camp we're sharing with the rest of the Ontario crew... our camp is now officially known as SARS Camp, and the Great Canadian Poutine Stand. (later in the day, another larger shade structure was added, and we now have a very comfortable, very popular little place to chill out.

Didn't your mother ever tell you not to crawl into strange holes? This is actually a giant urinal.

Star Wars Land Speeder -the bumper stickers on this thing were funny as hell, unfortunately you can't really read them in this picture, and I can't remember any of them right now.

This little bus/van is a roaming martini bar at night. It's also got shitloads of trinkets glued to it.

Centre Camp and Camp Arctica

Got something that needs delivering? Ped Ex and the Black Rock City Post Office will get it there!

The stairs to climb up to the man were insanely steep.

A view from the top of the man towards the Temple of Honor - dusty as hell.
