Re: Any Burners in Nairobi?

So it turns out that there is more than a couple of Burners in Nairobi. The first of what will hopefully be a monthly gathering is next week. Just started a FB group to connect everyone. I'm gonna attempt to pull off a Santacon this Christmas, then a couple of themed parties to raise money for local...

Any Burners in Nairobi?

I know, it's an extreme long shot but if there are any Burners in Nairobi, Kenya, please get in touch. Even if you've found this a few years after it was posted. Hopefully, by the time you read this, I will have gathered a group of misfits for you to hang out with amid the conventional and unremarka...

Done! Wouldn't be Ticket Day without a racing heart. Looks like this this is now nostalgia.

Hope the main sale goes as smooth.

Temple 2011

It's been less than a week since we heard that we got The Temple after a long and anxious wait. The news sunk in quicker than expected but I'm still pinching myself and we've already been inundated with responses and offers of help. Designing and building the temple this year really is a rite of pas...

Sounds like fun. Megatropolis and Minitropolis will be there in miniature. We've already made several scale models and burnt them. What's another one! I look forward to seeing your camp in miniature including a tiny METROdome with a tiny scale model of BRC within it. It's microscope time!

The Rising Arms

I've managed to scrape some funds together and will be bringing a cooler too. I also intend to bring some concrete blocks and a varnished plank of wood for the pub bar. We'll put a curtain across the front and then we can hide the cooler behind the bar.

We're sooo gonna rock!

You could check out Burning Life . The gate opens at noon SLT on 17 Oct, but allow a good few hours to become acclimatised - choose your avatar, pick up some clothes, have a wander, learn how to dance and fly. The basics are quite self explanatory. I joined Second Life last year because I found out ...

Send your details to LetMeIn(at)euroburners.org

You'll probably be sent you a pdf version with directions to the venue and some info on some of the fun things to expect.

Most of the porta-potties at 3:00ish were zip-tied by Monday afternoon. They left a couple open in each set. I didn't see any queues when I was there. I left the playa on the Wednesday morning last year and the playa was very empty. I think the folks remaining were mainly DPW, center camp breakdown ...

As much as I love Burning Man, over a month of stimulation would have me going slightly mad and besides I'd be wafer thin.

So that'll be 1201am 31 Aug to 1159pm 6th Aug. Although if you're lucky the playa party begins days earlier and ends days later.

I'll be adding a couple of CCTV cameras to the entrance of Brit Camp but they'll just be empty boxes with a red LED attached.

I would add a flashing speed camera too but hardly anybody would recognise what it was.
