__CAMP XX__ GOA Culture__

Post by what time » Tue Feb 26, 2019 12:32 am

GOA CULTURE

CAMP XX

:arrow:
We are a strange modernized hippie generation, we bring harmony and love, consist of the Indian Ocean, and the smell of fresh flowers from the mountains of Nepal. Waking up in the morning we meditate and urge to relive the sadness and immerse in universal love


So I would like to start a story about our camp, and generally, who are we? We are an international camp, which is assembled from fragments of people but strong people, sympathetic, we strive to help everyone, to survive with him the difficult moments of his life.

:!: And we cook very tasty, we want you to be satisfied with our kitchen



8) And so We have already placed a questionnaire for participation as a theme camp, now we are getting volunteers who want to join our camp and give people kindness



In this thread, we will publish our schedule what we will do and what days it will be interesting.

update information every week so that you see how we prepare, how we treat it, because everything we do we do qualitatively


and we are always happy to help from people with experience, because we are so small in this huge world! we like to learn everything new :oops:

If you will be serving food to people not in you camp, make sure you get a Nevada food permit.

Hello what time, that's a nicely done camp layout. How many people are in your group, or are you planning on having?
At our camp, we work hard on a very welcoming and inviting frontage. Signage, lighting, art pieces, an artcar etc. We added a Welcome Center structure with a guest sitting area with shade and canvas photos of past burns. Parking of RV's and cars are towards the back of the camp, and tents can be put in the morning shade near the RV's.

The camp has a Facebook page, named "BurningmanXX", and an Instagram page (full of generic pretty-people photos that they've taken from other sites) named "burningmanrus".

From what I can see, it sure seems to look pretty much like the stuff that Marion was drawing attention to in her "Cultural Course Correcting" article.

The more I read your facebook page /instagramm account the more you remind me of fyre festival :) with burning man pictures taken from other accounts, the advertissing of your camp as a hotel or as a plug and play camp ...

My question is, how are you getting all your gear to/from the playa with only three pickup trucks?

Other than that your shitty plug and play camp looks great.

Do you have a link? I'm sure it's very appropriate... Help pull off the mask of bullshit, won't you?

It was in their 2nd post ... https://campxx.com/

You can get to Facebook and Instagram from their "Contacts" page on that site.

It's interesting that there's a prominent page in Russian, and a bunch of Russian comments on Facebook.

They're dropping the "Burning Man" name absolutely everywhere.

Thanks for sharing, I must have been so blinded by my anger towards this type of shit that I missed that part. Good heads up to those future "customers".

Hello again, burners, and thanks a lot for an attention!
We realy apreciate all your opinions and comments, even if you say we are "shitty" - that's why we are posting here!

And as I see, I got to clear up some things))

Oh yeah) But we are still working hard trying to make everything "nice-placed", and also still deciding how many RV's will it be, so it's not a final version.

Sup! Thanks! We are trying to do everything the best way we can, even such a tiny part as a layout) There is a lot of talented guys here in Goa, so it's not a big deal for us, actually))

So, about the crew. Let me show you a crew layout we made some days ago:

Image

It should be about 55 of us as long as we rely on this version, but for that moment it's only 17 who 100% in the game.

Image

As you can see on a now day plan, there's space for about 13 RVs and 11 tents, and I think we'll make final decision how to place everything in summer maybe, when there will be more ppl in.

Yeah, totally agree with your point of view, man. You can take my word, there is no single day for us not to discuss and plan how everything should shine and sparkle and be comfy and well-placed at the same time) There's some photos of the roof of my house in Goa attached, so you may take a look and be sure we LOVE to create SPACE for ourselves and our guests no matter what is it - house roof, workspace, camp - anything! It's kind of lifestyle maybe)
Btw thanks a lot for the usefull info, we really appreciate it!

Yeah, thank you guys for the notice! It's kinda hard to get the same username everywhere, so yeah, here the links: https://www.facebook.com/BurningmanXX/, https://www.instagram.com/burningmanrus/.

FYRE yeah ahahha) we've got the same associations sometimes)) I wish we had a Billy's bags fully loaded with cash to have such a marketing thing (i'm talking about website now) but we've got only one guy in our team who in love with web desing)) Nevertheless, as I said above, we are trying to do everything the best way we can, and website is not an exeption!

We are trying to keep the balance between the photos made by us, some usefull info and some stunning shots to inspire followers, and, of course, we have no ad in any known variations. If you mean something specific when you are talking about "the advertising of your camp as a hotel or as a plug and play camp" in our accounts or a website to point us at - please do it, cause we don't wanna have any kind of misunderstanding here!

Thx, man! We updated camp layer yesterday, take a look on a pic above. The pickups from previous plan are Fords 750, and the big boxes above and under are containers actually:

So we don't think we gonna have any problems with logistics, and we are really happy to hear that you find our "shitty-plug-and-play-camp" layer looks good! Have a nice day, man!

Yeah, that's really interesting! Most of us were born in Russia but we are trying to be as international as it possible, as you can see. So please don't be afraid of russian words, we are nice and soft like little ponies.

To the OP, do you have these 13 RVs reserved already? Local RV rental places run out pretty quickly for the week of Burning Man.

My points:
Be realistic about the number of people if it is 20 that is 100% than plan for it not 70.
Negative points
Big $$$$ camp - you can make it cheaper so you can invest on the gifting and interaction.
Big Risk of you not renting RVs in time.
RVs are like a mafia, they overcharge you and abuse you. Their website prices are never real and they always change because of Burning Man.
Power Distribution issue, your layout requires too many distro boxes and wiring. It becomes expensive and heavy to carry all that wires.
Camp tents are exposed to the wind and you are not making full use of the RVs shades and wind protection.


Solutions:
Use Hexayurts instead of RVs- its cheap to build and can be reused.
Rent a huge tent- Tectrac, Keder Frame and so on.... - also cheaper and you can fit a lot of people inside. I got a quote for 40X200 including transport and labor for 12000.
cluster your RVs in small U shapes, do not make Huge walls. It is more efficient do distro power for RVs that way.
Use RVs to protect and shade the tents when possible.

Caution with rentals. BMORG is a pain about the OSS-it created monopolies and exploitation from companies like United Rentals and United Site Services. You might need to be creative about how to get your rental stuff to the playa.
Big vehicles might need CDL license.
