help! need a camp!

Postby gualy6 » Fri Aug 15, 2008 10:20 am

Hi there,

We are 2 burners and 8 virgins looking to join a camp. We have our own RV, tents, etc. but would be happy to pay dues to use the shower and the shade. We're all from San Francisco, youthful, outgoing, and super fun. We're ready and willing to participate in your camp goings-on as well. If you have any availability at this time, please do let us know!

we had plans with a camp but unfortunately, they fell through. it was not a lack of planning rather, just a small misfortune.

hey guys,

i realize that to some of you this may be funny but I am just looking for any camp opportunities. It seems pretty un-burning man of you guys to be making fun. Not to mention it's pretty lame that you guys don't have anything better to do. That said, please only post helpful things here. Thanks.

No, it's VERY burning man of us. Look at it this way, we are bumping your request to the top with every snarky remark. :D

Shower?



...


We bought a portable garage thingie from Harbor Freight in 2005 for, like $150. Sat in a dusty in the backyard until last Sunday when I chased off the critters, hosed it down and tried to set it back up without instructions or a parts list. Hell, I wasn't sober when I put it up on the playa on 2005, but it took me an hour and I didn't even cheat (duct tape and zipties)

I think it's going to be difficult finding a camp that has room for ten more people by this point because the registered camps have already been assigned space based on the dimensions on their application.

Thanks ZB!

We certainly won't be SOL if no camp works out but just wanted to check out all options :)

You're the man.

Yeah, one does wonder how someone who can't handle board snark is going to deal with bullhorn heckling... Burningman is a bit more Mad Max than Rainbow.

I've never heard of it before.

The irony in all this is that we PMed her when the post first came out yesterday saying we might have room.We were given more room than we planned on this year and could possibly fit them in.
Asked a few simple questions on how large the RV was and how many tents will be pitched etc.
Never heard back.She underwent four snarks in that time for nothing.

Hey all,

Thanks for the helpful tips. If we don't end up joining a camp (many thanks to those who have reached out to me!), we are most concerned about a shade structure. Anyone have any good tips for how to build one effectively and easily?

Thanks!

The Super K-Mart in Reno was sold out on shade structures went I passed through there last weekend, but you could pop-rivet beef jerky to a couple of beach umbrellas.

OK so that explains not responding to anyone who actually offered to help.This may be the most clever troll since"Camp Hedon from The Planet Wanton"
