Here are a couple tips for intra-city camping; Do NOT show up on Monday morning at 3am and pull your RV into a spot at 6:00 & B. These spots are invariably reserved for camps with early access despite whether they are official 'theme' camps or not. We had three 40' RV's pull into Moonshine Taver...

I wasnt going to go

But I love you all too much to not show up.

I know I've been absent from the forums as of late and we will not be bringing Moonshine Tavern back this year, but I feel an overwhelming need and desire to attend the burn again this year.

That is all.

Just bring whatever you'd bring camping. Sounds like you've got some burner friends already, i'm sure they can point you in the right direction. There are also tons of packing lists on the intraweb, just google "burning man packing list"

My Canon 50D has no problems and did not need professional cleaning after BM09. I walked around with it IN a dust storm. I do not remove the lens and keep it in my backpack when I'm not shooting.

Personally, I have always had an issue with people bringing kids to the playa but, after a wise campmate told me, Burning Man is kid-heaven. I mean seriously, there are people dressed in all sorts of costumes and performing countless numbers of art all the time. This is exactly the place for a kid. ...

I totally agree. Yurts rock! I've helped assemble a few hexayurts on the playa and I've stayed in a couple of larger yurts at the Lupin Lodge and they are really cool structures indeed.

I love the sense of community that the video portrays. These people were burners long before we were.

So what are you going to do about it? Police the signs or just complain that "it's wrong" and "unburnerlike"? And for the record, I have never stolen a sign but I don't have a problem with people doing it.

I think that I noticed them missing starting on Friday. I am just glad that I know to find landmarks/lightmarks early in the week so i dont get lost. Honestly, you should know which street is yours from The Man.

And no worries Anti M, I would never booby trap you. :wink:

I dunno, I think this is going to backfire on them.
