Re: Black Rock City Plan for 2018

From what I've heard, the number of camps requesting placement is at an all time high, as well as the camps requesting, but not placed. That's good, because a camp is a greater commitment to BM and a greater of measured interactivity and cleaning up MOOP. Maybe it is a good way to orient virgins and...
