Re: Will Call sucked real bad

Living in the UK means I can't easily volunteer to help replace the ticketing system. Are you suggesting I give up work? Some of my camp mates are professionals in this matter and have offered advice. Will see if the BM are open to suggestions or have their head stuck in the dust. You can totally v...

Re: Geodesic Dome w/ crows nest

That's my Dome/Tower/crow's nest/Zip-Line! We are Sextant Camp, we were located at 3:15 & Esplanade this year. I may have had dinner with you. I was with Northwest Mist. Three of your folks were eating with our "Hector" or "Beijing Phelps". Super brief, but good meeting you (or your camp mates!)

And this is how people get busted by undercover cops - "but they didn't look like an undercover!" Yeah and they can't lie if you ask if they are a cop. this is what people actually believe One of my favorite moments this year was asking a BLM ranger, "ARE YOU A COP?!

Re: What did you learn this year?

Treating yourself and those around you as autonomous adults capable of making their own choices and taking care of their own needs is the ultimate path to happiness.

The moment you try to fuck with someone's autonomy, or let someone fuck with your autonomy: You will resent, or be resented.
