New podcast 4-17 per JRS. Same time.
Also, said 300 reservations left out of the 1000.

Who has the documentary film where Larry Harvey addresses the low rate of participation by Black people? I used to have it on DVD, but lent/gave/lost it, and do not remember the title.

I remember the “black people don’t camp” quote (paraphrasing) that was pretty gross & cringe
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Who are they kidding? Four months out and they haven’t even called it...
it isn’t happening.

Which, fortunately, means it IS happening, for the self-reliant people!
Amazing how the anti-establishment becomes the new establishment.
I’m hopefully gonna do it again, assuming I don’t have obligations

Edit to add: There is a sliver of a mention of it at the very top of the screen on the BM website.

Not gonna lie: I think BM did the right thing. That was a tough call to make, so RESPECT to da BORG!

Having said that, the playa is ours, so lets DO THIS.

I think you’ll need adult supervision, so yup. If you’re throwing-down solo, join us. If you’ve got an entourage, lets merge (or closely co-locate) our camps. :mrgreen:

BTW: Rumor has it that the Capt has been talking smack about kicking your racecars ass with his golf cart. (I may have made that up, but it would be damn-Skippy fun to watch! Lol)

Yup!

Lets share cell/contact info offline so whoever gets there first can publish the camp GPS coordinates.

BTW: Bring your own portasquatty. It appears that the gifted portos from last year will not be repeated.
