Re: 2011 MOOP Map Live

Unfortunately, your plot is only as MOOP-free as it was left by the last person(s) to dump things there. Several years ago, my camp painstakingly de-MOOPed our themed plot (and neighboring plots) prior to exodus, as we always do. A month or so later, the Afterburn report was published, and I was hor...

Re: Ever find your stolen bike?

2011 was my 15th year. In all my past burns, I had never locked or labeled my bike, and never had an issue. On Tuesday of this year, I spontaneously had the urge to use a roll of white duct tape and a Sharpie to tag my bike with my camp name and address. The next morning, I awoke to find my bike mis...

Re: Asshole passed out in my tent, sleeping in my bed!

How big is your dome? Our dome is only 22' in diameter! I saw the spot on the carpet, which was only two steps away from the camp chair we left him in. Other details worth noting: Though the guy was really out of it, he managed to zip the tent closed behind him. He also removed his glasses and neat...

The Toe

Yeah - we kick ourselves for not taking a picture of Shaggy, but I did get a picture of The Naugasnake's ingrown toenail for all to enjoy: http://www.blaqua.com/images/2008/playa/content/bin/images/large/IMG_0234.jpg (I edited my post and hid the ghastly photo behind a link now so as not to disgust ...

We Should Have Sharpied Him

The Sharpie (r) pen art could have been unprecedented. Had we known how our encounter with our playa derelict would have gone by morning, we could have seriously had our way with him. Super-gluing his pee-hole shut would have been up there, if not for it being so cruel and unusual. Or, we should hav...

Thanks, Trilo!

Every year, I look for new music to listen to for the journey out, so that when I hear it again later it will remind me of *THAT* year.

I'll definitely be downloading this and putting it on the MP3 player.

Sleeping Bags

The only thing I'm going to have trouble cleaning is our sleeping bags. Any suggesstions ? Take the sleeping bags to a laundromat with those huge front-loading washing machines. Wash each in its own machine with plenty of detergent. Afterwards, throw each in its own huge front-loading dryer. They'l...

You cannot forget...

...to bring your Naugasnack.

I would like to add vise-grips. These are the miracle-tool for pulling up pesky rebar stakes. Don't leave home without them.
