Help Finding Theme Camps

Post by Moonpie » Mon Jul 31, 2006 7:50 pm

This will be our third year at Burning Man and I can never find all the theme camps I want to visit from the list here on the BM theme camp site...is there a logical way to find them?

We have no problem finding the stuff that is on the program that is given at the front gate but the really funny theme camps here on the website seem impossible to find once at BM. I really don't want to email all those theme camps asking where they will be that I want to visit ahead of time, but is that the only way?

Just throw the list away and wander.

We have wandered the past 2 years....but sometimes having a target destination is desirable...otherwise sometimes the women in the party get tired and want to crash unless a destination is identified (but usually we get sidetracked anyway)....

A ride? Hell, man, get the whole damn car.

Your Grandma obviously didn't school you in the ways of the flesh market like mine did.

"Ronnie," she'd say to me, "There are no $1,000 a night hookers. Only $1,000 a night johns, and lots of them!"

And then she'd laugh that old lady belly laugh of hers and start up another story. She's a force of nature, my Grandma.

Use a spreadsheet program. 4 columns of data. Column 1 for the camp name. Column 2 for the clock position. Column 3 for the street name. Column 4 for notes (so-and-so's camp).

Now make your list of camps and their locations. Include all the stuff you really want to see.

Before you leave, sort your spreadsheet by camp name and print. Now sort the list again by column 2 (clock position). Put the paper back in your printer on the other side and print. You should now have a double sided list of the camps you want to see. Side one is good for when you want to find a specific camp. Side two is for when you're wandering around and are wondering if something you're interested in is close by ("hmm, I'm at 4:30, was there something around here I wanted to see?").

You probably won't get to see everything, and that's fine. But the list ought to help.

Thanks Trilobyte...good suggestions...my challenge is finding the theme camps addresses(locations) in the first place...there seem to be odd ones that are not posted with their prospective addresses...

Dude, that was me being sensitive. Not for love of St. Peter, mind, he's too fat and old for me. But still, I am sensitive! I'm a Sensitive New Age Guy for cryin' out loud!

It all sounds like a lot of extra hassle....for me it's simple this year. Find Camp Apokiliptika, the Eplaya Bar, and know where Doc Pyro's camp is for the Meet & Greet. Show up for the Meet & Greet on Thursday, go fight the art cars for a view of the burn Saturday night and voila, that's my scheduled plans. As for finding the camps I'll just get on the bike and ride the ring streets checking things out...if I see it I see it, if I don't oh well...but I'm sure I'll find enough distractions as is to keep me occupied.

Kinetic, just in case you were unaware, the M&G will be held on the corner of Chance and 3:30. Of course, Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro is nearly impossible to miss.

That tool is pretty cool but can't be carried with you on the playa.

Last year, SwampDog converted the web list back into Excel so that you could sort by camp name, location, etc.

I just PM'd him to see if he is doing that again this year. That was great because we carried the list in our backpacks and used it as a way to plan. Wandering is fun too but there were certain camps we just had to see and list really helped get us close (though you still have to do a little searching once you're in the neighborhood).

Kamp Apokiliptika (mis-spelled Camp Apokiliptika in the official list) is at 3pm and Anxious.....really its at the end of the world....

xls for camps

Post by swampdog » Wed Aug 02, 2006 9:02 am

Last year I put together a sortable xls of camp listings. Major Roosevelt PM'd me about it (I appreciate that is was so valuable people remembered it!) and asked if I'm doing it again.

I'm not going to the burn this year, but I should be able to find time to do it next week. If anyone wants my "toolkit" (it's pretty raw stuff and requires a lot of hand work, about 1-2 hrs total) I'd be glad to send it. Otherwise I'll post it here when I'm done.

Several viktims wandered into our "web" (kamp)
with a print out in their hands! They were rewarded
with various bizarre forms of interrogatory torture
and cans of PBR.....


Are you so sure you want to find our Kamp????

Dr. Pyro:

How could you miss Barbie Death Camp!! We see it every year (never a miss) We have lots of pictures of your camp as I believe the Death Camp is quintessential Burning Man!!!!

Don't need no pre-plans to find you!

It's not the destination, it's the trip.

Try a zen navigation approach: even tho you may not find the camp you're looking for, you will surely find a camp you need to see.
