Some great camps start like this. :) Tell people a little more!

Camp philosophy?
Experience level?
Is there shade, or is that one of the things you'll work together on?
What side of the city do you like?

Good luck!

WOW!!! what a fantastic idea!! My other half and I are going for the first time, super thrilled and excited. We have a core group of burner friends who can not make it this year, and some others who are already commited to camps that are closed!!! Would love to chat to you some more and get involved! My name is Justin :)

I like this idea! I much prefer small, personal camps to the big ones. Could you tell me more about your camp? My ePlaya account is set to allow email.

Hey Guys! Last year was such a success we decided to do it again! We will be taking 3 or 4 easy ups, a large carpet, chairs, music source, food, booze, fire canister and wood, and much more. Last year we took 2 kegs and a jockey system to have cold beer but we are not sure if we are doing that again, still thinking about it! I’m also taking my trailer so we can make a shower on it if we need one. We are all pretty mellow and very respectful! Please feel free to call me or text me at 760-619-8483.

I think they should call themselves Jockey System, because of a random two-word pairing in the previous message. And on Tuesday night they could have a Jockey Party, and you would either have to be dressed like a Jockey, wearing Jockey shorts (male or female) or riding on the shoulders of someone dressed like a horse to get in. Mint juleps served. Horse racing at sunset.

Don't let me do that to you! :lol: Better if you and your campers get tipsy and pick a name Monday night of the event. Bring a sandwich board and paint and put a sign out. :D

I'd like to see how this evolves as well, I'm prepared to go solo again but it might be interesting to try the group thing again.

Do you guys have room on the fence for an enthusiastic introvert who is looking to share whatever he has to a communal effort?

Is there a Google doc or something setup to plan this thing out?

I'm down! I just posted a need for a group to camp with. I'm from San Francisco and this will be my fourth burn. I'm ticket hunting on craigslist and I should have one by next week. I'm on facebook.com/maryokneel. Hit me up! I'm so stoked that the universe dropped some extra cash in my lap and I'm off to neverland! 415-684-5520.

Dr, I'm taking the burner express bus in on sunday, so depending on how this thing pans out, I'll either be getting in before nearly anyone, or last. (my reasoning being that the buses are apparently getting their very own lane, and that I'm taking a 6 hour bus ride at 12 noon, plus expedited will call.)

This being said, I might be able to get us a predetermined spot so we all know where to meet up. Let me know!

First timer here, hoping to snag a ticket off these forums or craigslist, decided to go on a whim since none of my friends can/want to go. What can I contribute if I join?

Hi there,
We are two BM newbies looking to have an awesome experience and meet new friends during the festival (and whom can help us not to get lost in the BRC...lol).
We are looking for a camp to stay with and I found your post about creating one!
We really like the way your are setting it and you all seem fun and great people! We would like to know if you'll have a space for 2 friendly people with a tent, please?
We are a fun and sociable couple and the burning man is a step in our "1 year around the world" trip! (We've been travelling the last 8months...time flies!!).
We are willing to participate to the camp wether it is to cook, share stories, partying or chilling out and chatting! ;)

Please have a look at our couchsurfing profile to know more about us.

Cheers
Cindy & Francois

Be careful about Craigslist. Read Trilobyte's guidelines for avoiding fraud. http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic. ... 26&t=63729

Thank you Schtev, that is definitely something to be aware of. Right now, I have txted 3 local people on craigslist and none of them replied. Obtaining a ticket seems very difficult but I will keep on trying.

The way I did it was I watched the Tickets Offered board here on ePlaya like a HAWK, and pounced the second any compatible offer showed up. You've gotta be persistent and quick. It would be extremely helpful for you to take advantage of the board (not thread) subscription feature and leave your email open so that you'll get an email notification the second a new thread is created on the Tickets Offered board.

Also, don't lose heart! I found around this time of year last year that a lot of people who had been sitting on tickets they can't use up to now started realizing, "Oh shit! I'm not going to get more than face value for this thing!" Then you saw a sudden surge of new ticket offers.

Thanks for the encouragement Schtev, and I love the idea of following the tickets offered forum - I just subscribed to it. I will try my hardest, and if not this year, then next year will be my first time for sure!

It would seem there's a lot of interest in this. Should we figure out where everyone should meet up?
