M*A*S*H 4207th doesn't need new recruits.

Post by The CO » Wed Jul 15, 2015 11:23 am

M*A*S*H 4207th will be in 404://Village Not Found, located at 2:45 Carny!
3:00 neighborhood, you can rest easy knowing we are here to stop the spread of godless communism, mutants, and 5th column infiltrators.
WE will once again be showing old episodes of the show every night. Random security checkpoints, blockades, and raids may happen at any time.

M*A*S*H 4207th is not accepting new recruits. We are not seeking campers.
No amount of money* will get you in. Our dues are ridiculously low. You can’t pay them.
We don’t need your mad skillz as a __________. There are enough _______________ on the playa.
You will not get fed by our communal kitchen, since we don’t have one. Everyone eats at different times and has different dietary needs. Bring and prepare your own meals.
We will not provide bikes, tents, costumes, or power to your RV.


Still think you have what it takes to join this man’s army? Answer one simple question:
Why do you want to join M*A*S*H 4207th?
Why do you want to join (insert any theme camp name here)?

I will give you a hint: The answer most likely to get you into an existing theme camp is a variation on the following sentences:

“I LOVE _________(the theme of the camp)! I’ve been a fan of _________(the theme of the camp) for years, and I am so jazzed that there is a theme camp full of people that feel the same way! I’d love to join you guys and help promote ______(the theme of the camp)!”

I will give you a second hint: Treating any theme camp like a hotel, and showing no interest in what the camp is actually about, is a fast train to NoResponseville. Read this to learn more about joining theme camp.

See you in the dust. Come by Rosies during the day for a medical grade martini or maybe even a grape Nehi.



*I can’t say no amount of money. Let’s say $5000 to start the bidding

I love M*A*S*H. As a teenager I used to refuse to answer the phone to speak to my friends (or mum mum if she was calling to check up on me) between 5:30pm and 6pm when the re-runs were on.

I also lusted after a M*A*S*H themed medical drip drink dispensed for a really long time. What I really wanted was Hawkeye though. Or to be Hawkeye. I'm not really sure which.

Great post.

Sometimes I think there needs to be an place for matching campers to theme camps. And we fight to the death for burners vs tourists.

Well, that's what the partial list of theme camps and the theme camp boards are for. Radically self reliant burners look through those lists and reach out directly to people whose ideas excite them, and radically less reliant people post a 'seeking camp' or 'where do I camp' thread.
