Crystal Ship II From the Ashes 2019

Hello my fellow burners,

My name is Adam Carlo Quihuis, I go by the handle Logan out there in the dust, I am a camp member of Skinny Kitty Teahouse. Last year during the Northern California wildfire I lost my home of 7 years. Also Lost in the back yard of that home was our problem child of an art car The Crystal Ship. An iconic Emerald Beacon at night, the Crystal Ship had become a rally point and welcoming form of playa public transit for the past nine years. The fires have taken a lot from our northern county community and we are just starting to rebuild, we hope to make rebuilding The Crystal Ship a healing part of that process.

Our brothers and sisters from the Abraxas Art Car have donated their old bus to us and we have concept art for the new ship. Now we need to fund the build, the previous incarnation of the Crystal Ship was funded entirely by myself and fellow camp mates. The scope of the build and financial stress of the fires has made that option unattainable. Accepting help is harder than giving it for a 20 year burner like myself (says the guy living in a FEMA trailer) but I think the world needs a new Crystal Ship and I know our community needs the process of building it together.

Edit:
We had a great first year we pulled it off. Now its time to try and get it back out there and finish the dream. So again we must ask for help making it more crystally and more shippy.
