Hey Zep, absolutely. Especially if you could describe the how not to do a ZipDee.
Hope your job is being more playa friendly this year. I'm inspecting on another new Wal-Mart, this one right on I-80 at 395 in Reno. Might be open in time for Burners this year.

Can somebody find a simple site plan I could peruse (read "copy") for one of our old camps? Right now the plan is Airstreameri on the right, Geology types on the left. But I gotta have a map to include in the application. Does 15' by 50' per Airstream/tow vehicle unit with awning sound about right?
Thanks muchly, with a thick coat of playa dust on it. (Who can list the three most common components of playa dust, test question)

According to
Silicate-Based Molecular Nanotechnology, I

(oxide percentages by weight):

43.1 % SiO2
25.4 % various organics
11.8 % Al2O3

There are also various light metal compounds; those are what produces the alkalinity we all remember....

Wow Bart, that was fast. Looks like you're missing a bunch of CaO, but now I'll have to go dig that up.
Found some plans, back in Feb of 08. Thanks Zep! I'm working at keeping it at 150' X 150' but still have room for 20 units.
May I list Bart's MV as a camp resident? I'll need some particulars on fuel, fuel storage and all that though for the app.

According to that paper, CaO amounted to 4.51%, so didn't
make the top three....

Sure... since RoboShaw's prime mover is nothing but a 6 hp industrial engine, 10 gallons of gas is all we use all week... we'll also have 4 x 20 lbs of propane for Robo's fire effects.

We're sure to have one tent w/ 10'x20' monkey hut; perhaps two, so if things are very space constrained we may need to seek a larger space. We also have RoboShaw (6'x15') that needs streetside parking, and a small evap. pond (4'x4') behind the 'stream, as we don't have a gray water tank in our '71.

We generally find sitting under shade along the street to be a comfortable way of coming to grips w/ daylight in the morning, so setting up some community space that has some shade streetside is nice.

Some effort will need to be made co-ordinating late arrivals & early departures w/ this tight a space; we've had problems w/ that before.

I'm also trying to go through Ranger training this year...

Are we trying for a theme camp this year? Deadline in 2 days....

Ehya, less than two days, the map has to be in too. Has RoboShaw gone through processing? I'll try to look it up...another day tho, gotta be at work in 7 hours, then if the wind is down and not raining, the roofers will work until dark. Cutting up Zeps plan and moving things around looks like I need to ask for 150 by 170 minimum. Probably not much chance they'll accept my app. "Airstreameri & Geologists" since they hold ya to 34 characters.
One of DMV's lead council is also a Ranger.
What kind of sample was that chemical analyis of, I didn't get to follow it up.

"Bauxite Hounds" might work...

That sample was Black Rock desert playa dust according to the paper.

I've rsvp'd for our group... I'm already longing for the playa. Maybe time to sniff the coat again:

I like the circled wagons effect of the third one, even though it doesn't use space quite as efficiently. There's something about the idea of being surrounded by a wall-o-luminum.

Right now we're designing on 150' X 150', Anybody think we need more?
Web spinner, somehow I get the feeling if you plugged that formula into a computer, you might have the formula for time travel or something even fancier.

Nah, it's just the formula for Aistream travel, but only if you have a blue pickup truck driven by a lower case "p" past the lush, green Tilde-Backslash Mountains. ;-)

Nice....

Some notes/questions:

  • We'll need to deal w/ early departure/late arrival folks; getting that info ahead of time will help a lot in allocating spaces.
  • We'll need a bit of space at the very edge streetside for RoboShaw.
  • Community evap is a great idea. I've used a pumped system to enhance evaporation 10x over regular systems; let me know if that's needed here...
  • What is the community interaction for our camp?

- Bart
