my week in review

I picked up 2 bags of BM swag (Costumes and such) free from Craig's list. Sorting it out, keeping the 'it fits' stuff for us, and the rest gifting to the next BM passersby we come across. Did the annual 'rebuild the camp shower' ceremony in which we track down /replace missing & broken bits. Now hav...

We're hip deep in planning & procurement. We have our 'things to acquire' list, especially Lego, and even have the ubiquitous Facebook page! .. look for LetsGo Lounge. Waiting for the placement committee's good word, then it is a mad dash for the next 60 days. We would like to have a few more local ...

The chintzy toy handcuffs work as a deterrent. The tipsy confused burner who thinks they have found 'their' bike will give up trying to unlock them and look for 'their' bike somewhere else. I use them on my bikes; but my bikes are cheap fur covered cruiser bikes, not $1000 Cannondales.

Yes, camp communications. One for internal camp communications, mainly for "we stopped by looking for you, and you weren't around, we're camped at X oclock and G" type communications, but also"we're having a camp meeting at 5 oclock- please attend" type stuff.

We're getting many inquiries from all over the planet about the camp (aka Lounge), so it's going to be lively! If you're interested, drop me a line!

I would like to have a few more local (SF Bay Area) burners as part of the camp, for infrastructure planning, building and hauling.

In previous years of doing this, I've brought the Lego in shallow storage boxes (6" tall, the kind you slide under your bed), and that held them in without needing to dump everything out so people could play with them. I've lined the floor of the tent/awning/dome with carpet remnants or tarps that m...

We're going to try to get the 'LEtsGO Lounge' going again, this time thrice as strong as last year, although it would probably be classified as more of a 'down tempo' camp. What do you have in mind?
