Bippy!

Captain’s Log  4,391

Steampunk is on its feet!  We opened yesterday to great comments and responses!  I think this exhibit will go just fine.  Just fine.

Photo show for now because there is still too much going on right now for me to take time to pontificate about much.

The star of the show!  The local makers group known as the Starburner Galactic Courier Service took the museum’s 1909 International Harvester and made it into this.  A flying passenger vehicle for all space/time travel.  No special license required.  And they did all of this without drilling any holes in the vehicles or attaching things permanently.  The engineering skills needed to do this are remarkable!

Base camp of necessary Steampunk items needed if you attempt to journey into this world of discovery.  This is a hit with our visitors.  We turned it into a type of scavenger hunt.

Docent training on the fine points of this exhibit.

The Evotrope, a large 3-person tricycle that also displays an optical illusion when the wheels spin.  And yes, I did take this for the spin when the exhibit floor was empty.

Child-sized Steampunk scooter discovered one night whilst having dinner with Mage and Geezer at a local vegetarian restaurant.  After contacting the artist, he agreed to display it.

Master maker Kim discusses the finer points of ray gun design.

Am I having fun?  You bet your sweet bippy!  Am I exhausted?  An even bigger sweet bippy!  Is this one of the most rewarding things I have ever conceived of and actually brought into form?  Huge bippy!
