Someone found a completely dessicated calf that had slipped and fallen into one of the pools up around the double hot springs closer to the actual Black Rock. They took the carcass back to camp and paraded it around like some found sacred idol complete with the pall bearers wearing hooded cloaks and chanting a funeral dirge. All they needed to do to take it over the top would have been to spray paint the thing with gold paint.

^this^, i like...it has an aesthetic kosher meat foundation kinda feel to it.

The "Litter Box", where furious felines can scratch it out. The large sand box can be filled with two colors of water balloons buried in the sand. The balloons can be filled with melted chocolate and sticky yellow lemonade. The furious felines wear ears and tails while digging in the sand to find their color of balloons and hurl them at the other feline. Points are kept for the most balloons found and the most hits made. Meow, Grrrrrr!!!! :twisted:

San Francisco will suffer a Major Catastrophic Earthquake before August, thereby freeing up a number of tickets at the last minute.

Convoys will arrive on cue
Hauling astounding art to view
People will be drawn from here and there
Nervous excitement filling the air
Eyes wide open, mouths agasp
Lips to kiss and hands to clasp
Longing for the cool of ice and mist
the winds will howl and twist
The sun so hot the flesh will scorch
Art cars assembled with fiery torch
Sand filling every crevice and crack
music thumping we'll stumble back
Looking for our camp, lost at sea
Where, oh where on the playa could our camp be?
Exhausted and overwhelmed we'll sleep in the light
Emotions riding high we'll devour the night
And then in a meeting of minds and hearts
Just as our community fuses - we'll prepare to part
Steadily the Great World will turn
And then, of course, the Man will BURN!

Sand?
She hasn't been yet, and most people associate "desert" with "sand". Even the words we commonly use don't really give any details on texture (like "playa" or "dust" - hell, playa literally translates to "beach" so sand would be an appropriate thought). I mean, I camped with Piss Clear my first year, and came overly knowledgeable (yet knowing nothing) and pre-jaded, but I still didn't "get" what the dust was until I experienced it.
It's a camping trip in the desert, not the redemption of the fallen world - Cryptofishist
