20 Year Burner Anniversary Get Together

Post by greathaji » Thu Jul 27, 2017 10:13 pm

I'm coming up on my 20th straight burn this year.
At 10, someone hosted a 10 and a 15 year anniversary.

I'd love to get together with some burners who have been there as long and hang for a bit and compare notes.

If there was interest, I could host at our camp.

Thought I'd throw it out here and try a few other places.

Chime in?

Over the 20 years I've:
- Built and nurtured a large and still thriving theme camp that is among the longest surviving and still healthy (2004-present) that has served up countless joys and gifts to the entire playa, including producing a TEDx talk on how to transition a theme camp to a new generation of leadership
- Conceived, built and successfully deployed an art car (2005-2008), contributed mightily to a second one (2011-present)
- Led a large scale piece of art on the open playa. Project weighed 8 tons, was visited by thousands, successfully burnt and cleaned up (2004)
- Mentored, literally, hundreds of new awesome burners
- 3 years of volunteer at the DMV
- 4 years as a Ranger
- 2 years at Media Mecca
- 6 Greeter Shifts
- Our theme camp has used our connections and footprint to raise over $20,000 to donate to various non-profits including donating an RV and $5,000 to a mobile animal rescue project post-Katrina
- Fed trolls :)

what a funny question....

Dear greathaji (did you give yourself this name)?

There is a curious gap in your accounting of accomplishment with no history of 1997 - 2003.

I can only conclude you were the perp that kidnaped The Hat from the Rubber Ducky jazz bar in deep playa and were forced into the Black Rock City Witness Protection!

New identity, some them camp to run ... it all makes sense.

Confess and repent for your FKO-isms, 97 to 03 and be saved from the heathens!
