While chasing after a drunk Tejas on his scooter, I managed to give myself heat rash (damn short shorts and chub rub).
So I was happy to accept a ride on the Party Snail art car to go see the Worm Watch burn at midnight on Friday.
I have this TREMENDOUS fear of being left behind on the playa at night.
It’s so easy for me to get turned around and lost.
So I stayed close to the Party Snail when we made stops at Planet Earth and Sextant.
And then again, when we parked out among a field of art out on the playa.
The Worm Watch (created by the South Bay Art Collective) burn was fun to see – it was a GIANT wooden earthworm, poking out through the playa with an observation tower next to it to get a good look at the worm.
Here’s a nice picture of what it looked like (since my pic is rather shabby and I never saw it during the day):
It all started with fireworks (naturally) and culminated in the slow collapse of the structure
The drone show we were supposed to see never materialized (damn high winds) and so that was an uneventful end to the evening.
Here’s drone footage from the night before:
