We could make mud notes in the playa. Smoke signals. Use a white board marker on the side of an A/S. "Draft" a designated sign person, write messages on her back..

Try again...

Who will step up to the call for a

COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD

Nutin fancy but must stick in the ground, stand strong winds, be about 4.5 ft tall and have that erasable white surface and some colored pens on strings.

Who will take up this most excellent task, moving to the next level of nirvana and take the title of

"The wise Dusthopper"
?

We will be camped on Cedar Pass right outside Alturas the night before rolling into the Burn. If you are anywhere near the Walla, you must stop in.
Also; Get gas in Alturas - it is the last large scale place to gas up. The pass is high, almost a dozen of our warm beer cans blew up in the trailer icebox. It took us hours to lick it all up. If you lick on one side and then the other, back and forth so to speak, the carpet doesn't hurt your tongue much at all. But being more experienced with this "exploding can" sort of thing, this year I'm bringing straws with little tiny filters in them.

Community stuff to bring

If anybody has, and has room to bring a few carpet pieces, and a couple tables, they would be great to have for the community center. Last year we put down some shag pile carpet on the playa and it was very nice on the tired toesies.

I'm planning to stop by wherever your camp ends up. Or you are welcome to find us on the Hushville-AEZ border. Look for the 12x20 white canopy with a RW&B Hypno-Twister atop a 20' pole and two RW&B feather banners. The H-T is great for finding camp (strobe at night)....Something I haven't seen discussed in your thread. Anyway, we will have shade, shelter and beer if you are far from home and in need of such...Or simply need to duck out of a dust storm.

In the placement list, it looks like the max dimension between the named roads is 150'. Is this correct? I thought it was 170' last year.

Here's what they did:

Did you feel the squeeze in 2007? Well there are some BIG changes to our city this year! Remove 2007's three inner blocks -- Esplanade through "C" -- and you have our new Esplanade for 2008. After the Esplanade, the streets for 2008 run A-K. Since we've taken the three shortest concentric streets from the inside, we added two longer concentric roads at the back of the city. The distance from the Man to the Esplanade road is increasing from 2200 to 2700 feet, which also means the length of the Esplanade grows over 2500 feet longer than last year. Click here to see a comparison against last year's plan. See you in Black Rock City!

Basically, the new plan appears to have longer, narrower sites.

Here's a revised layout for 150'. Note that the width has been increased to 230' from the previous 200'. This layout only allows for 18 attendees. Not everyone is going to put up an awning, so we'll have to make spacing mods as rigs arrive and state their actual needs (unless we want to get highly organized, reserve spots, make rules, buy berets...uhmm, I don't think so).

Hey, everybody got their pirate flags?????

I believe this will create an issue for how the longer rigs park (still attempting to avoid having to back in, as much as possible). As you arrive, pick your spot, but observe where the openings are on the opposite side, so that you don't park in a way that fills in your side so tightly that someone can't pull across to the other side. I think the shortest rigs will still be able to come in the entrance and make the turn to their center spots.

Note: The corners are critical to "defending the space" and should be filled as early as possible. Artstream and myself have claimed two of them--anyone else (I think so, but I don't want to read 29 pages of posts... )?
