Re: I forgot to register my camp! Dodgeball!

40x60 plus a perimeter needed is a massive amount of ground space required for your set-up. Will you need space for the keepers of the game to camp as well? Are you planning on bringing any of your own infrastructure of camp that you could possibly add to a camp?

Welcome to eplaya Mama Ricci. Many people find the trip to Black Rock City extremely therapeutic. Everybody burns their own way, but I think you'll find the Temple particularly poignant this year. You could spend some very quiet time at the Temple and leave some notes, a letter, photos or mementos t...

Re: Looking to camp somewhere new this year

I camp pretty close to Center Camp. It gets pretty busy and loud at all hours of the day and night. You are in a quieter neighborhood, but can easily get to action. Moving closer down towards the Esplanade will improve the excitement.

Re: Looking for camp lead

Our camp lead just "assumed the position". I'll call her Pat. She saw so many gaps in the way things were run, so she stepped up and made great spreadsheets, and started organizing meals and tasks around the camp. She was very careful not to make it appear that she was stepping on toes, but rather c...

Re: Catching a Thief

My best guess is that a bunch of the 5000 bikes left on the playa were bikes "borrowed" because they weren't locked. Bikes that are taken like that are just left where they land. The owners never find them. There is another interesting phenomenon that's happened to me many times. I leave my bike on ...
