Re: Camp THREAT is accepting membership.

If I didn't have a camp I would consider joining. Except I'm on your enemy list and about 10 other requirements would exclude me. Oh, there is a camp on the fringe of 3 O'Clock called 'voted best camp'. They have the worst and loudest music. They also serve lukewarm koolaid and vodka. I love them fo...

Re: House music on the playa...

Being a DJ has become so embarassing at BM that people don't even say, 'I'm a DJ', anymore. Hard to find someone who isn't. Musicians are greatly appreciated.

Re: Glasses

I use ski goggles that are made to fit over your glasses. You can also cut a little notch in the foam on each side to make your own. Bring at least 2 pair. Tinted and clear.

Re: Small Theme Camp looking for a Village to join

So if that layout is 60 feet across how do you fit 6 tents a car and a u-haul truck. Those would have to be some tiny tents. then there's the question of bike racks at the back of your camp. There is no way to get them out to the street. Tents have ropes and straps around them. Those 5 cars across t...

DMV is pretty specific about the original vehicle not being recognizable. I don't think they will license a car covered with stuffed animals. Even if it is a limo. I think it's too cheezee. And I love cheezee. With all the designing, time and money put into the MVs this looks like just a way to driv...

The hardest part of filling out the theme camp application is the layout of your camp. Go back to the theme camp instructions and see what size ...
