Jerkwatch: Gerlach Local's "Free Shower Bar (4:30 &

Post by Ingram » Thu Sep 16, 2004 5:48 pm

:evil:

Wanted to drop a note: If the Gerlach locals seemed unfriendly,
consider their "camp" setup Friday-Saturday (NE corner 4:30
and Jupiter).

They get their tickets at reduced cost ($40.00) from the
Burning Man folks. So, what 'art offering' do the Gerlach
locals offer to the BM community?

They bring a water truck, set up minimal apparatus, and promote
open-air "free showers" for passers-by.

This was next to the wooden Whiskey/Margarita Bar they erected
for themselves, so this group of middle-aged rednecks could
spend the weekend watching naked BM participants wash off days of
playa dust, while they sat on tall bar stools sipping their libations.

I suggest, that if the BM administration provides reduced-cost
"local" tickets next year, that they require provision of a
SHOWER CURTAIN, for the use of their Gerlach camp 'guests' !

Or, as has been suggested, encampments involving reduced ticket prices OR large, prime real estate must include some level of interactivity that's comparable to the degree of the camp size, location or subsidy.

If this is the same farmer I'm thinking of. He has had enough to drink that he can not see to the shower. If you want to get back at him Just go over in the morning and be happy. I was useing his electric to charge my camera in 02. He asked me to try not to be so happy all the time.

So the people getting free showers didn't know there was no shower curtain? Believe it or not, some people don't care if they're being watched taking a shower. Besides, what's better than a bar combined with a shower? :D

yes well there was the golf cart of older men that came by my camp to hose down the ladies most were topless already and after each hosing they moved in for a big wet hug when my turn came for the hosedown i had my top on they said i had to take it off this was early in the week so you know theres all sorts of people doing all sorts of things not just rednecks from gerlach to use your phrasing

sounds like a great opportunity to make some sort of participation out of it somehow i'm not sure what perhaps the gentlemen from jiffy lube would have been game for some fun in the shower

Maybe we should round the old coots up, take them to an art museum and lecture them for hours about how the human body is beautiful and that they had better hurry up and achieve a higher level of enlightenment....

Or, just get realistic about it and build "Mutual of Nevada's Mild Kingdom Camp" next door, offering a glimpse (perhaps from a hunting blind!) of the fascinating behavior of the Gerlachian Dust Pervert. Watch 'em from ten feet away with binoculars. Sketch 'em. Make castings of their footprints and record their calls.

So you think that people are so impaired they can't spot something as obvious as a bunch of old coots sitting around watching a free shower, and can't make a judgement as to whether giving an old lech a cheap thrill is worth a shower? And, if they stumble into this trap and find themselves feeling threatened they can't outrun the old geezers? Wow, you must PARTAY.

I'm thinking of going just to show off my flabby old pale male body - if you really want a shower you can probably duck in while they're cowering in shock from the sight.

Would it be acceptable if they were good looking artist types?
If so, I'm gonna do that with my camp.


Wait, did I just imply I was good looking? Yeah?
Cool.

I'm all for it, I think the rednecks are finally "getting it" Heck, I'll shower there sometime, and even drink a few of their beers.
They get a display of my tits,
and I get a shower.

I like it lots! After a couple days they won't see the nudity anymore...

gosh.....
just like...one of us

there's something wrong with ogling?

when did that happen?

99.99% of the playa is ogling in one way or another--and the remaining.01% is in such slack-jawed amazement that they've forgotten how to actually ogle and are spilling random imagery all over themselves.

we all enjoy the sight of interesting specimens of the gender we're currently attracted to, no?

these guys are saying be naked at us and we'll give you a shower--and a beer. at least they're paying. most everyone can ogle for free.....

now, would you like that beer in the shower or just handed to you at random intervals?

I'd opt for the shower because if the water's hot enough, even warm beer will seem cold.

Plus, if you don't use the shower then those guys from Gerlach will have gone to all that trouble for nothing

Well come on by, any time. We'll have cold PBR in stacks and showing your tits, or any other such return favors, will be optional. The PottyLady drinks what she want, in our camp. :)
