ok, there is clearly not enough smack talk going on here.

We did the whole getting excited thing....
then the engineering thing....
then the how to engineer thing...
then more of the engineering thing, with a slight gestapo flare
then where to park
then when to park
where to advertise our totally cool camp
where to place things
how to rope off our private playa
then we talked about the exodus and how long it takes to get off the playa.

As I read along, I am equally into the whole thing - I love organization.
then...it hit me. I have been to the Burn many times. Here is how that is really going to roll....
Wavey lines....Wavey lines....

First off....I'm rolling out of the Walla with my ass hanging out the window. Yes, I'm going to sing along with the radio all the way there and the crowd is going to love me. I'm gonna be stoked and ready to have some big time fun.

I'm going to get a overwhelming feeling of home when I see the dust rising off the playa - a homecoming.

I'm going to tell the greeter how cool my Bambi is as they look for stow-aways. I will remind them it is all original and it all works. Airstream rocks. I'm going to leave them excited to get on airforums and get them one, and to visit our fly camp.

My gang and the Bambi... and the Donk... and my flatbed with the field kitchen with dual 10X20 awnings, bikes, and PA system, & cases of booze (if I can get someone to tow it) - all my fun extra **** are going to roll into that playa and shake all that **** up along with all the other 40,000 burners. Hope your ready for that. I probably won't park strait, but I will try. I will set up the PA first and announce to the camp that my sorry ass is in camp.

During the night we will probably have some hippie from Oregon set up their PVC dome right in the middle of our camp and his morbidly overweight girlfriend is going to sunbath nude all day-everyday- and wave at us with great enthusiasm. (that happened to me last year - no lie) Some of you may not like it - I know you wont...but we will have the best performance art at the Burn. I will roll with it (pardon the pun) knowing that isn't something you are going to see everyday and celebrating the freedom - crazy.

As for Exodus, I usually get up early (dark) and roll out with no issues. Sure, I'm going to wake your ass up with all my crazy singing and PA playing something like Sinatra, yelling when I drop something on my foot, and generally causing havoc - then we will be off and having coffee somewhere shy of Alteras. Since I roll North to the Walla, once I make a right turn before Gerlach I have a empty road all the way home to reflect.

We got a short period of time to let go. I'm going to let go, I deal with all this structure all the time - we all do. I hope you all grant yourself the license to let go...please. I never do, I need to more and so do you.

ok - I expect some crazy fun responses - I wanna laugh and get ready for the Burn now.
ok...
ready
set...
GO!!!

Yeah, we're working work work work to be able to escape back home to BM.
I still haven't been able to post on my home computer since this latest great upgrade on Airforums. Why is Vista such a dang hassle in so many things?

So Chopperpilot, I take it that an early morning ethanol fueled low hover armchair rendevous or three isnít out of the question? Nothing like sun up to fire up the blender.

Oh how I miss my crazies...

*crawling toward the playa ferrying heavy loads*

so looking forward to sharing an ice cold
and tasteful silver shot glassful
sitting in the dust
with y'all.

Or maybe an Otter Pop.

Bam Camper:

I don't know if you remember me;last year I went to the Burnstream camp and met you and the young couple from Nevada. I am Charlie M from the Nevada Unit of the WBCCI. This year once again I'll be with some friends in SOB's and we generally park around 7:30 & H.

Question, do you know where the Burning Man Rally Airstreams will park this year? I'll stop by and say hi.
