Re: Alright, let's hear the best and worst from 2012

I forgot a Best moment: A couple of good playa friends had given me bracelets. One of them was a 8-knot-across friendship bracelet, which is really nice and not just any playa swag. Anyhow, they were important to me. I took them off in the HeeBeeGeeBee tent during morning yoga, and accidentally left...

Re: The good, the bad and the ugly for 2012

They really pissed off the pyro, who showed up that morning with a team of 25 guys to find that not only did they not have their fire perimeter set up, but BWS was more interested in putting up Frog Bat than getting ready. They were basically forcing the pyro team to wait around on their time. I'll...

Re: The good, the bad and the ugly for 2012

Good: - Watching the Wall Street pyro go off for the Anubis burn after the Powers that Be stripped it from Burn Wall Street for mysterious reasons Word is that it had something to do with the fact that people were still crawling around in it and BWS didn't have their shit together in time. The pyro...

Re: Alright, let's hear the best and worst from 2012

Best: —Being part of the Anubis build crew, and the payoff of watching something we worked really hard on being enjoyed by tons of people. In a similar note, the friendships we made our Anubis playa family. —Cruising in the gates with no line because of early entry, and being able to watch BRC slowl...

Re: Food Camps Past and Present

Grilled Cheese Camp served grilled cheese at noon every day this year. Line moved fast too—you'd have a gooey grilled cheese in your hands within 5 minutes. We lunched there three days in a row, and sometimes went up for seconds. It was an awesome gift that was much appreciated. Snow Koan Solar hand...

Re: Virgin looking for a Camp(2012)

BM is perfectly amazing without joining a theme camp. My first year, I camped down and dirty with a couple friends and a tent. We were set up/cleaned up within a couple hours. It was bare bones, far from luxurious, but it got the job done, and I relished the freedom that came with it. Everything I d...

Re: Ever find your stolen bike?

This year, someone walked stole my sister's bike from our camp—in a little residential enclave off the Esplanade. It was unlocked at the time, but it was tucked behind some vehicles and yurts and they definitely had to have been looking for a bike in order to find it. Luckily, it reappeared a couple...

Re: Temple Burn -- one hour of silence and reverence possibl

My biggest problem with people at the Temple Burn this year was the DPW crew sitting on top of their scissors lifts. When asked to quiet down, one of the DPW girls replied, "Suck a dick whitey!" Dissapointment is not even a description of how I felt. I feel that DPW of all people should understand ...
