Sell itself as a sound buffer to adjacent camps and be placed at F.
Personally, I think BM should create a non-amplified sound placed camp zone which would satisfy the last. And it's hard to argue that Hushville, as is, needs prime placement inner and central. But hey, it's your camp!
A virgin camp btw is a bad idea. Negative placement points.
I think a Burning Boot Camp, or Burning University would be a good concept for virgins. Say a dozen or so vets taking on two or three dozen virgins to teach them the ropes. It would definitely go towards addressing the issue that some seem to have with a changing or deteriorating culture at BM. I know lots of camps take on a few birgins, but going with the theme, you could have public classes on lnt, evap ponds, etc.
This virgin mentoring and instruction is one of the HV goals we discussed on the playa. Tours of our non-combustion camps would be offered, just as AEZ does instruction of alternative energy.
Hushville is already placed back along D to F, splitting a village block with another village of the same size... but Husville always has at least twice as many individual camps, we're always elbows to assholes in there. Not like we're getting any better placement than any other village. The three street sides are always open camping. We don't shush people, but we do try to negotiate, just as the Survival Guide suggests neighbors do ... hey, can you turn the speakers inward to your camp? Nothing more or less than other participants do.
We have at least one member camp which does do large interactive open playa art. Our town round hosts parties Such as the Librarian Cocktails, and the Silent Rave.
We're trying to do more, but there are so many assumptions out there.
Good to know. I'm very interested in checking out AEZ.
I wasn't trying to suggest you don't do enough.
I'm still debating between camping by myself and trying to find a camp to join. I'll be attending solo, so I think I'd feel a little more comfortable being in a camp. Not from a safety stand point, I camp solo all the time, but from a social standpoint. I tend to be shy and have a difficult time making the first step. I feel like I would enjoy myself more if there is a group of people who I have to interact with by default. I know I'm not guaranteed to get along with everyone, I just think I'd find it easier to reach out if I have a reason to.
Anyhoo, I'll definitely keep an eye on what's going on in Hushville. You all sound cool.
