Re: Camp D^5 Looking for Interactive Assistance

Good point. A better response would have been "As the burning orb transitions above the western hills stop by for a dusty dog before embarking on dirty thrills"

Re: Bittersweet of approved but not doable- The Flint Fix-It Fort

Yes, definitely keep your private porto secret, don't even tell your campmates. That's what I do every burn.

Luckily they are also very lazy and will never see this post!

I forgot to mention we just booked DJ Dolbytall for a sunset set on 8/27 Monday night (7:30-9:30pm) and a sunrise set on 9/1 Saturday (5:30-7:30am).

Great EDM/Trance music, you'll find him on mixcloud and soundcloud

Re: Camp D^5 Looking for Interactive Assistance

Yeah, puppy play is a fairly specific 'thing' in the kink world. Probably not your bag. Okay so I used the power of the vast inter-webs and in very general terms you could say we are a puppy play camp in the most innocuous of ways. There was no intent behind the dog theme, other than since we were ...

Oh ok. "Puppy play" means a very different thing in gay culture that's why I asked.
Thanks for educating me on that, I didn't know my tongue and cheek comment had other meanings and I don't want to leave the wrong impression about our camps interactivity.

I have to agree with the Captain, pump up the impact wrench to something you know will do the job. I took a 1/2", 20Volt impact driver with 5/8" x 23" lag bolts and that worked wonderf...
