having just returned from the amazing Los Angeles "burnal equinox" event BEquinox in Joshua Tree, CA, USA, now is a fine time as any to remind those of you not planning to go this year to Burning Man can still participate in burner-themed events worldwide including live radio broadcasts from the playa presented by the good folks at BMIR and live video streaming from some very clever dust ninjas from Burning Man...

if you have joined us in the past, welcome back...if you're new to this, check out previous ePlaya Camp Envy posts for more info...

we will be adding to this topic as time marches on, so check back with us in the coming months as we like to keep things interesting around here...we already have lots of things to share with you, so stay tuned...

just a reminder to NOT visit campenvy.com as it is nothing more than just another spammy deathtrap that will crush your soul...seriously, it is bad news bears on that site...be forewarned...

however, PLEASE visit us at CampEnvy.Org or CampEnvy.Net...both of which have our seal of approval (arp-arp!).

Burn Brightly and we look forward to seeing you not on the playa...

Thank you for bringing the Playa to those of us who couldn't make it.

The streaming cam made my Not-Burn so much better :-)
In your wildest dreams you can not imagine the marvelous SURPRISES that await YOU.

Visit CampEnvy.Org HERE for more INFO

Bummed that your theme camp didn't get placed this year?...
We know exactly how you feel...how about a hug?...bring it in here...(((HUGS)))
Over the years, we try and try, but just can't stake our claim in the dust...(sigh)

Didn't get that crowdfunding to finance that multi-thousand dollar, one-of-a-kind art project requiring thousands of volunteer build hours only to burn up in mere minutes?...
We get it...practice the fine art of letting go with us...we'll help you find other ways to contribute your gift to the playa...

Looking for a visceral, immediate, and sensual experience that will likely get you airlifted to the nearest hospital?...
Well, maybe this isn't what you're looking for, but you can certainly make it what you'd like it to be...

Arrrrrrrrr ya ready to set sail, matey?

Image

Join the Largest Camp NOT on Playa, Camp Envy...
Collaborate with burners and non-burners alike, create a space that works for you until you're mad as hell and can't take it anymore and secure that golden ticket, permit, supplies, and transportation to BE there in person...or you can BE right where you are, and join the MILLIONS of burners who can't go to TTITD for whatever reason...we don't judge...much...


Rumor Control: The playa will NOT be closed for the 4th of Juplaya...but bring your wellies just in case...

Rumor Generator: There will be so much mountain snow pack runoff that Black Rock City will be completely underwater during burn week...LONG LIVE THE TRIOPS!!!

Visit CampEnvy.Org HERE for more INFO

p.s. seriously don't go to the camp envy dot com site... that place is crawling with phishermen...

This year I'll be locking myself in the bathroom with a sleeping bag, a propane heater, a 42 inch industrial fan, and 20 lbs of talcum powder. Then I'll kidnap a dirty hippie for aroma, crank some wonk-wonk tunes and go on a one week booze-fueled bender.

Welcome to *my* camp Envy! :mrgreen:

don't forget to add a noisy Harbor Freight generator, random propane explosions, and sudden downpours with double rainbows...

sounds like a good time to me... :)

My camper and the Land Yacht are both in my back yard... it's as hot as BRC here, and while it's not dusty the Seattle area is heavily smoked out by some goddamm Canadian wildfire so it looks almost like BRC in a whiteout.
I could go out there and play... or do what that crazy Grey Coyote should do instead if he had any damn sense!!

Admiral: Yah. Um... let me do some critical thinking here: I *could* take my cue from some dude in a Dick Cabot suit playing Capt Bullhorn in a derelict boat in the middle of the fucking DESERT...

Actually, that boat does come with a pretty cool First Mate, so maybe Unjon and I need to go full pirate motif on yer sorry ass, nab the girl, steal the boat, loot the ice chests...

Hmmm. Maybe next year! :mrgreen:

I wasn't kidding when I said we're the largest theme camp not on playa...

At the end of the day on Sunday (2017/08/27), here are a couple of stats...

1,286 members in the Camp Envy Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/campenvy2009

159 members in the Camp Envy Slack.com Team - https://camp-envy.slack.com (pm me or e-mail me your e-mail for a team invite)

62 members in the Camp Envy Observation Deck - Facebook Messenger Group (pm me or e-mail me your e-mail for a group invite)

Visit CampEnvy.Org for links, info, and fun...

Visit CampEnvy.Net if you have limited internet speed.

Former members of Camp Envy are on-playa this year to represent all those on the other end of the Burning Man webcam lens...wishing we were right there with you in the dust...but can't be there in person to give you a dusty hug...

Many thanks go out to Ronjon - Burning Man's Communications Director, Motorbikematt - Webcam Wrangler, J-Kanizzle and crew at BMIR, Rusty Hodge - Black Rock FM, and everyone else who makes the Network Operations Center connect and thrive in the harsh temporary desert of Black Rock City...

If the webcam isn't on yet, it's because it's freakin hard to do this every year...

I object! Hard? HARD?

Lemme tell you what's hard.

Having 6 camera feeds on an Americas Cup sailboat trying to keep an ionization channel trough the splash and wash to the trailing cutter with directional microwave links as both vessels bob and weave up and down port and starboard...

It's ok, I get it. Slightly different budget and the Ubiquity gear has only so much juice. ;)

p.s. To all the hippie hamster blowhards - this is snark, it makes the place fun. Namaste Motherfucker!

I stand corrected... :D

but when you shimmy a 60 foot tethered broadcast tower, in the heat and wind, with a webcam clutched in your teeth, the tower does sway a bit...

best of luck to motorbikematt as he bridges that air gap in the connectors...

I love those installation shots.
Problem is, we can't tell if someone is shimmying up a tower or if someone is simply up on a platform dancing with the camera a la rose.

the latest: The WEBCAST is online...

network issues have been very challenging this year according to webcam operator @motorbikematt...but they have been resolved...

there are still a few tweaks that will need some down time to iron out, so there may be dead air from time to time...

most likely due to licensing restrictions and YouTube's strict policy against broadcasting copyrighted content, BMIR will not be playing as the default audio track...

to solve this, open these two browser tabs...one for BMIR and the other to the LIVE WEBCAST...

please be patient during times of technology maintenance, however, you all know how to have a good time without it...

besides, it should be up in about 10 minutes... :D

if you would like to help me find my lost hat, go to CampEnvy.Org to help me look for it...

We try to stay MOOP free...

You can not set up camp in the yellow zone any other location or topic is allowed and possible. (within established ethics)

so...the takeaway from this is to NOT camp in the yellow dots...as those are flame camps...you might be able to visit that camp, but bring lots of water...might want to leave the alcohol behind...

glad the highway has reopened...

Hope there will be no YouTube wars this year.

Even channels publishing they cover Burning Man are abusing the brand (except fot MotorBikeMatt)
