Tunachucker Hero Eats Nevada Sand For A Week, Brings Back Mutant Vehicle Photos

After his team's Volvo Amazon took the Index Of Effluency trophy at the 24 Hours of LeMons South, Mechimike was ready to tow a vintage trailer 2,600 miles to the Nevada desert and set up the "third most badass camp" at Burning Man 2008. I've been sort of on the fence about attending BM for, jeez, a couple of decades now (art= good, naked self-congratulatory software engineers on acid= bad), but the incredible Telephone Beetle above- which was driven across the country- has sold me: I'll be there next year! Make the jump, check out the gallery, but first take the time to read Mechimike's account- you'll be glad you did.
