Re: Flamingos FTW Looking for campmates and art participants

First off let me express my admiration(good on ya) for the core mission of your camp,the plight of the intercontinental BRC citizen.Each year our camp is 80-90% O/S.They appreciate the help with the logistical headaches and usually provide no drama in return. My take is that this is a very ambitious...

Re: First time UK couple looking to help out around the camp

Granted there is no need to join a theme camp.However coming from OS for the first time it sure makes it a lot easier. We have been inviting Burners from other countries to our camp for years as our contribution to the world wide BRC.We can offer logistical support that would take up a great deal of...

Re: Need veteran advice about Burning Express

Last second bikes in Reno? You can barely find them now.Thanks to the syndicates who set up the bike corrals in Empire and Gerlach it is getting very hard to even find a bike at local garage sales.Prices are very high as well.Never has spending $75-80 for a new made in China cruiser made more sense,

Re: Notes from the 2014 Theme Camp Forum

Our camp was on the 9 side our first 5 years and were exclted to be moved/"promoted" to 3 side in 2006.It was thought to be,and proven to be in our eyes,much less dusty.Think that may have changed when they re-routed the entrance road a few years back. I was surprised last year to see how much more ...
