Placement Pendant

Hi there, My 2013 Placement Pendant slipped off its chain sometime after Man Burn. It's about the diameter of a quarter. Blue background with faded (as in yellowish) looking man symbol and lotus petal design of the city below the man. Above the man it says PLACEMENT. Would love it back since they di...

Re: 2012 Experiences with Police

They said that they think a virgin camper had said something "bad" to a "hot" undercover cop who then lead a cavalry of officers into their camp. Something really similar happened at my camp, but the Police only pulled out the RV. Our Theme Camp got to keep going all week; however, the Sheriffs dro...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

After making an inquiry about a theme camp RAFFLING a BM2012 TICKET to raise funds, I discover this is actually a tradition with some camps who have been doing it for years. This particular ticket being raffled was not obtained via the Directed Allotment. How does anyone feel about raffling tickets...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Regardless of the fact that PnP's are kind of annoying in what they represent, they are a type of business that has evolved from burners, to support burners because of Burning Man. More reason to bring them into the fold instead of going on an exclusivity witch hunt. This, and the request of Papabe...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Had an interesting (drunken) conversation with a PnPer that camped with us last year. He was super last minute, a buddy of his was camping with us and asked to have him on board. We still hadn't reached our maximum so we said sure, it'll be this much in camp dues, and he joined up. I honestly barely...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

First, I think Lemur and BBadger are both doing an excellent job of pulling up the details of this discussion. I tend to agree with things both of you are saying, maybe because you're both good at analysis of details, maybe because this issue contains so many grey areas. What I want to examine in th...

I hear that pimpin' ain't easy. Good prep for the playa.

With Fertility 2.0 around the corner, there better be some pimping going on. Roll out the purple shag carpet.

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Slightly back on track: One thought I've been putting through the stone tumbler is about the size of camps. The Theme Camp I run averages around 60 people each year. We struggle with aspects of all those people getting to know each other, sometimes even recognizing faces. I've never camped with over...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Janus, Do you really NEED air conditioning? Can you figure out a way to power your pimp house without a generator? I've never NEEDED, or used, air conditioning or a power line for my personal little pimp structure in the back of our theme camp. Maybe you have a medical condition, I won't begrudge t...

Janus, It's nice to hear your response and most of what you're saying certainly makes sense. I could pick apart some other sections, but will leave that to others. The one that made me react though was this: This year, I’m going back to the tent to experiment with this idea. But that will take WAY m...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

I was shown this video last summer by someone who was part of the build crew and catering for this camp. I don't know anyone but her and I'm going to refrain from making my own comments about it for the time being. I do think it's a fitting video for this discussion. [vimeo]http://vimeo.com/15346851...

We're a Eugene based crew.
We usually run a bar serving copious amounts of kegs from our local brewer. PM me if you want more info etc.
Cheers!

Lemur, followed your posts to see that DISTRIKT already posted something similar under the ticket threads discussion.

Is Your Theme Camp Now Missing Most of its Members?

There's a lot of talk on the ticketing forum about how many theme camps have 40-90% of their members without tickets. The STEP program hasn't taken place yet, so this might be a little preemptive, but I'm curious to see how many established theme camps are now unable to do their camp. I'm out of Eug...

Re: Towards a More Accessible Burn

Hey Cryptofisist, I just realized what the thread was that you were talking about. The one issue with the design that we have is you can't get much bigger then a 25' dome. Too many weak spots in the PVC if you try and build bigger than that. Anyway, I'll repost what I posted in my "needing to get ou...
