Uranium Springs: DETONATION 2019


Recommended Posts

So I am a part of a subculture that likes to dress up in dirty costumes, pretend that it's the end of the world and have adult fun out in the desert. Generally referred to as Wastelanding, it is a really fun hobby as you meet some incredible people and have some amazing experiences. I also use it to help support myself as I am a self employed costume maker. There are a few post-apocalyptic (PA) events around, the biggest and well known is Wasteland Weekend, with around 5,000 attendees and can be describes as Mad Max Burning Man. The event pictured here is called Detonation and is held on an area of private land called Uranium Springs out in the Painted Desert east of Holbrook, Arizona (it's on Google Maps). It's a much smaller event at around 400 attendees, but it's held on private land so people can build permanent structures there. Vehicles are a big part of PA scene and this was the first time I was able to take my Dnepr MT16 out to an event. I put so much work and stress into the past two months trying to get the motorcycle to work in time and with the help from this forum I was immensely proud of myself that I could make it running to take it out. I had so much fun romping around the desert there, taking my friends around on rides and seeing how many people I could pile onto the thing. With the addition of the little Swiss trailer that motorcycle came with, I managed to turn it into a little troop carrier and got 8+ people on it.

 

There's still a lot of work to do on the motorcycle but I am so happy that I got to use it there. Here are a bunch of photos of the motorcycle at the event with some more on the way!
