We bring Derpy- "The Playa Panda" to Burning Man

We are the Playa Pandas 

After experiencing my first burn in 2012 and having an amazing time,  I decided to bring my wife, Tracy to the playa. I loved the gifting experience during my first burn, so I vowed to come back and give back by bringing something that everyone could enjoy. 

In 2014, we designed and built our first mutant vehicle to help bring joy to those who visited the playa during the Burning Man festival. In 2015, we came again with a more comfortable design. 2016, we came with more lights and more people! 

2017 We are growing again. This summer cannot get here fast enough.

See you on the playa!
