Stupid Question RE: Hushville

Postby mikesieben » Wed Sep 17, 2008 8:57 am

I did several searches and can't find a good answer.

What is Hushville?

Is it a quiet camp?

Feel free to snark, I like it.

Yes, it is quiet. I camped in Hushville the first year I went, 2001. Apparently they allow no generators or loud music.

My friend's laugh would get us kicked out of that place in a hot minute.

Oh there was a lot of laughing there, it's just a more subdued crowd than other parts of the city. Also the ban on generators brings a different type of Burner, less reliant on technology, more into simple living. But they had fun, I've tried a couple of times since then to camp in Hushville but it fills up almost immediately. Very nice people.

Hushville:

No generators, no amplified sound, leave no trace.

I've camped there several times, great people. It's been right next to AEZ for several years, another great community.

In 05 some city planner/comedian put Gigsville across from Hushville. :-)

As a second year burner, I walked across the street to dutifully throw my little bits of cardboard moop into their fire barrel (which was a chopped VW type 2) just as one of their explosive bombs went off. I had no eyebrows for the rest of the week. That set the tone for a VERY good burn.
