I met up with my buddy and First Responder sim organizer Patrick Thorkveld and Iso Huet, an artist for First Responder, for a sneak peak at their Burn 2 exhibit. All I can say is WOW! What an awesome exhibit! They have successfully built a major storm in a relatively small area on their Burn 2 plot. I was lucky to get a sneak peak at it and took a few pics. The event organizers requested pre-event photos not reveal pics of large areas, full builds etc., to leave some excitement for visitors later. So, these are the pics I have come up with and although a active tornado comes through the First Responder build, I will leave that for visitors to enjoy themselves later when Burn 2 officially opens October 1st.

The 2011 Burn 2 Festival will run October 1st through the 9th. This is based on the RL Burning man annual event held this year in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Burning man is an experiment in temporary community dedicated to radical self-expression and radical self-reliance. SL Burn 2 has 9 components, Art, Burniversity, Communications, Community service, Mutant vehicles, Public works, Lamplighters, Performances, and Rangers.
