Seeking a camp & making new friends !

Post by dieulive » Sun Aug 21, 2016 2:44 pm

Hi everyone!!

My name is Aymeric I am a 23 year old boy from France, I just got a ticket for the Burning Man and I am now seeking for a camp to join.

It is my first Burning Man but I camp very often with my friends .
I am a chill guy , very peaceful ,sociable and used to live in groups. I will contribute to the commons tasks for sure , I can cook and I am also very good with the DIY so I can help to repair the camp, bikes etc.
I have a tent and all the stuff to camp. I have also a Vehicle Pass but no car.

If you need more information about me, don’t hesitate ton contact me by MP.

Hope to find a camp and share some good times with new friends on the playa !

Thanks !

Hey, lovely burners!

Same as bud from previous post - seeking my camp too ...

just got green light for my 2nd burn aon the last minute -> this time visa issues was a show stopper actually. Now finally can start to look for the right camp to join. Its quite annoying, I know, but in the case someone was dropped off - I might get the luck ...

Originally from Kiev, UA. Spend in Germany last 6 years. Got two right hands. Have mech. engineering /physics/optics/ background and would love to help my potential camp in fixing all kinds of stuff. Btw: I'm good in baking cakes actually too. So heat up the oven :)

I will fly from Berlin to SFO on 25th Aug and than will be available for an action. Could not come any earlier this year :(

Warm hug,
Alex

Almar good luck on your hunt for a camp. You have a ride to the event I hope. That's a whole different logistics problem.

It's so funny. Everyone wants to "contribute". Bullshit, they want someone else to do the heavy lifting and provide for them!

Very cool man.

I'm a "newbie" east coaster looking to attend my first BM ever if I can pull it together super fast. I know people prep all year and I mean no disrespect to BM; I just want to learn from the best, since my life plan is literally to build a career based on fighting hate with disruptive and fun art based entirely on gift economy and riding the waves of Karma (give art and all content away free as a universal rule and work off donations). I've also been working on my survivalist and off-grid skills for 20 years now; I'm no expert welder, but I weld and solder and cut wood and metal and sew and paint and build houses and shelters; I'm also a pretty solid McGuyver. I built a real-life fire-breathing Trump-o-saurus rex that shoots laser beams from its eyes and drips real blood from its real laser sharp teeth (for artistic messaging not pure craziness; ps milking your own blood for art projects is very time consuming) last week from a recycled auto scrapyard hood for $20 and a freecycled propane grill just for fun completely unrelated to BM; I built myself an off-grid airconditioned popup 10x10 room from freecycled dacron sailcloth, some zippers and a gas generator and a freecycled broken air conditioner two weeks ago just to give myself a little workspace outside in the AC and to practice skills, and I was intending to buy a cheap RV and fix it up this year to travel the midwest and couchsurf/volunteer. I've also gone on weeklong tent-camping or canoe-camping trips and done a bunch of outward bound. Basically standard boy scout stuff minus the boyscouts. I'm a decent computer programmer and inventor too (I'm currently working on a pesticide free laser flyswatter). I play guitar bass drums piano saxophone and sing, I cook and also not that it matters for a week, but I also enjoy farming. I'm a professional teacher and have a masters in biomedical engineering and a dual bachelors in bio and in environmental law/policy from tufts and brandeis and believe people shouldn't be able to bring handguns home but on the flip side I completely seriously think people should be able to use rocket launchers and military lasers at gun ranges if they want to, just not at home. I'm a hippie libertarian and enjoy when others are having fun safely; I also enjoy sex drugs and rock n' roll myself, ideally all at the same time :)

Not showing off skillsets, I just wanted to demonstrate why I uniquely feel "worthy" to jump right in to BM at such a disrespectful last minute, and why I might be "strong" or "worthy" enough to hack it, and why I want to go this year and not next, to learn from the best as I begin my nice little quest for the next several years. I've been doing gift-economy since 1998 when I was ten years old and put full version art and software online as "donate-ware" based on the honor system and karma :)

-Leo
CEO@LifeOpenSourced.com - apologies btw for being the "CEO" of my anti-company, a 501c3 charity I'm setting up, no corporate ties ever, no profit motives ever, I just make art and give it away free and having an LLC provides me with stronger legal protection for more offensive art, like TrumpBlewUpTheTwinTowers.com which will be going live on september 11th purely for first amendment expression and art not profit - and if you want to help make the faux-conspiracy site or any other art, too, or if you want a free forwarding email or legal shielding for offensive art or for whatever purposes you like - hopefully art and antiestablishment activity - at LifeOpenSourced.com or at FSociety.today or FSocietyNow.com, message me. For what it's worth, my business cards don't say CEO, they say Professional Mad Scientist with a picture of me laughing madly. Poster "Jackass", if you want help with that potential lethality, I'm your man. I fully approve of dangerous fun and risking darwin awards in the name of learning and science. I also consider my job title of Chief Executive Anarchist (my actual job title) at my other "company" FSociety to be more worthy.

Anyway, if anyone has some camp connections, let me know so I can hopefully attend last minute! I'm happy to legitimately chip in EMT services, with teaching, learning, building and fixing, for myself or others, whether or not we are in a camp together and whether or not you have something to "barter" in turn - my services and friendship are always available to all for free, both at burning man and in life in general. I weld and sew and cook and can rig up air conditioning with generators and low power LED lightstrips or anything else you can imagine - give me a dremel and some scrap materials and I can make you just about anything you can imagine. I cut my working audi 4x4 apart literally with hacksaws and dremels in order to ArtCar it for fun and to see how it works, by replacing interior and some exterior panels with custom-shaped and laser-etched polycarbonate. This includes the dashboard, center console and nearly the entire driver seat assembly - my seat moves with the motors and such but it's all made of paperthin glass-like polycarbonate. I'm also an EMT and former med student I'm always down to save lives and to pool monetary and food and drug and other resources and chip in more than my share at BM - and in life. PM me or email me.

Veteran burners looking for camp where we can contribute

Post by thalassa » Thu Aug 25, 2016 8:49 am

Burner friends - I didn't think I would be able to come this year, but my broken bone healed in time! I have never been quite this last minute before, but I am super excited for the spontaneity of it and to camp somewhere *totally new and unexpected*.

I would *love* a camp that is contributing something to the playa. Food service - we want to help (YES PLEASE), art installation - we would help man it and moop it after it burns (and help build your new art project next year!). Does your camp sing at the porta-potties in the morning as your service - we can't promise we would harmonize, but we would be there!!

This will be my 10th burn. We are low maintenance, high contributors, and have held leadership positions in small and large camps, including hosting our own theme camp one year. I have volunteered extensively with the BORG and helped design and build the "green" man pavilion in 2007. I have camped most often with Burners Without Borders (4 times, and helped with disaster relief in Peru) and Heart Tribe (3 times).

Also, I come with a box of costumes to share, from my costume design collective!

If you can share this with anyone you know that might have space for us, I would be ever so grateful. Xoxo

Dr. Pyro - thanks for pointing this out. There are two of us. I, Nya, am female, and Rick is male. We are not sparkle ponys although I have always wanted to dress as a unicorn but the right horn hasn't found me yet.

Hi There Everyone,
I got a last minute ticket and my camp fell through so I am looking for a camp to be a magical part of. I am in my 40s laid back but kinda shy and would love to find a place in an RV as well. Putting all my wishes out there. I camped by myself last year wasn't a good fit for me.
Super grateful for any ideas!!!!
Thank you!!
Sunny

Last minute joiner here, just found a ticket!

Like many, I've done everything from solo camping to small groups to larger theme camps (including starting and leading one or two with a friend).

This burn I'm interested in ways to give back to a camp via building stuff and doing rando duties, prefer low commitment / shift load for camp so I can volunteer elsewhere too.

I'm pretty laid back and sometimes chatty. Usually i give out lots of bags of chips at burns and spend hours listening to heartfelt speeches by friends.

Glad to be a part of this world

Totally interested in joining your camp! I'm a first time burner, but have been dreaming of this day for a long time! So excited to be making it this year, and be a part of the mystery and magic. Flying into SF today, and hoping to make friends. Let me know if I can be a part of your team and help contribute to the collective experience ♡

Hi! Second time going to the Burn but scrambling for a camp! Yours sounds like a good option!

My most relevant skills are likely bicycle repair. I also have a vehicle pass (but not car!)

I don't feel that 60,000 plus can or should really have a collective opinion on this. To me it seems that many people assume that camping at Burning Man is beyond their abilities. I don't know when it became larger than a camping trip with a few extra necessities. I see a lot of people roll in with a pop tent in a rented sedan, as their basics, with enough of everything else they need. They made a thoughtful study of how to get it done. They make lots of new friends and camp mates that are just parked near to them. They contribute to groups they find there. In this thread, I'm feeling a lot of "I need" and likely "I can't" as the very first thought.

Join a camp so you're slave labour and have camps chores and responsibility's list and tasks!
Get to burn for your three hour break on Wednesday afternoon.

Solo doesn't take much. A sleeping bag wrapped in a tarp on a cot beside the car. Add a large cotton cloth to wrap your head in for the dust storms.

Hi - the countdown begins!! we would LOVE to join a camp and contribute in anyway (food, $$, laughs, and dances moves). We are two easy going and fun loving girls from SF who are driving to BRC on Wednesday morning by breakfast.

I know it is last minute and a lot to ask BUT would anyone be willing to make room for us? We have super cool tent, speakers, cool cameras and more. Please let us know if there is any room!!!

Sincerely, #koolcampers!

HIIIII ***~~*~My name is Cheez (f) and i'm an artist/designer/researcher looking for a community camp to be apart of ~
I've tried to reach out to a few camps but seems they were all full so I'm trying here.

I love the intersection of artxscience, and I brought drawing supplies to make drawings of people I meet (my art: cheezpro.viirj.com). Also some jewelry to give away ~

I look forward to helping contribute to the camp in whatever way possible and make new friends!
