A couple more questions:

Number and Type of Vehicles *This question is required. Save and continue if you need to return at another time.
Burning Man would like to support environmentally conscious transportation options. Please consider this as you plan your transportation to the playa. Please specify the number of cars and large vehicles (RVs, buses) that will be in your Camp so we can determine space needs.

We need a description of the layout of your Camp. Please describe the physical aspects with as much detail as possible. Include a description of features like structures, buildings, vehicles, tents, platforms, and the locations of your power sources. Maximum of 5000 characters

also:
Camp Layout Plan Must be uploaded to complete questionnaire *This question is required. Save and continue if you need to return at another time.
This question is required. Save and continue if you need to return at another time.
Camp layout plan must be uploaded to complete questionnaire. Upload only a single page .jpg camp plan or a single page .pdf camp plan here. File size no greater than 1 MB. Note: filenames must have extensions .jpg or .pdf and contain no blank spaces for successful uploading.
If you are using a mobile device, this file upload functionality may not work as expected. Please save your progress on the next page and continue this section of the form on a computer. If you do not upload your final layout plan, your application may not be processed. This is a required question, but may not function as such on a mobile device.

I'll get on the layout this afternoon. Unfortunately I'm on business travel and may not have access to our previous plans until Friday.

I think we still want the 2:30-3:30 area out about "D" street. It's not too far out, but far enoug from the explanade that we can sleep at whatever time Burnstreamers sleep.

Re: Placement. I will be attending (have one ticket confirmation). Bringing one 19' Airstream and one 19' TV pickup.
Re: Theme: If we do decide on the MASH theme we may need only a few props: (1) a military-type tent about 16' x 20' with open sides. Can double as shaded gathering space for camp activities. (2) An old military jeep with a couple of stretchers. Could double as mutant vehicle and haul people around the playa while lying down. Any other ideas welcome. I don't have any of these items.

Great picture of MASH theme camp of past year. I don't think we can compete with that if they do it again. Maybe we should just stick with Geology theme. What do you think, Perry?

43. Acculturation
Our interest in Airstreaming comes from the desire to be mobile, to see, do, help, plan, to execute, relish, relive the memories. Airstreams have been caravanning since the 1920's all over the world and building short term mobile communities. We are self reliant nature, but where ever our 'streams go we build communities. These are core values of Airstreamers and of the Burning Man community. Newcomers will naturally be attracted to 'streams, and our friendly individualistic outgoing inclusive nature. Each Airstream is itself a work of art. Individually crafted, handmade and loving cared for, our 'streams are works of art themselves.
We can teach the new ones the hardships and happiness of self containment.
We can teach the new ones the beauty of mobile communities.
Our camp also offers a refuge for the new ones. A glass of water, a bathroom, a place to cool off or warm up, a shady spot to sit.
Our camp includes geologists. Rocks, minerals, chemicals, aluminum. Our resident geologists give a talk on the nature of the playa dust. This is a must for the Birgins - learning about the most basic element of their Black Rock experience - and how to deal with it.

44. Interactivity Description
Since this is playa bound city, geologists may be available to ask geological questions for your answers. Usually we have a Playa Post Card table to mail (and receive) your most exotice post cards. Our camp's main interactivity will probably revolve around our Airstreams and their aluminum/ mineral/geology connection. We hope to bring knowledge of our Airstreams and their lifestyle of relaxed, mobile living and mix that in with the minerals that gave birth to our 'streams. Events planned for our camp include a talk on the playa dust One of our resident Geologists will be giving this talk and take questions. Another event will probably be "Airstreams the User's Manuel". various 'streamers in our camp will give tours, explain how our self contained little "tin cans" work, sustainability, electrical systems, water supply, heat, air conditioning, storage, hook ups, upgrading of old 'streams, purchasing of new 'streams, Airstream disasters, all the various hope and heartbreak that are part of our Airstream lifestyle. We all have different stories and experiences and will share those and give tours of the various airstreams involved. Or we will have a MASH tent with Doctors and stethescopes.

45. Project Features
46. Project Interactivity
Acculturation for First time Burners,Heckling,Ritual,Spoken Word,Workshops,Primarily Day Time

47. Number of Campmates 31 to 40

48. Number and Type of Vehicles
Probably 18 airstream trailers with truck tow vehicles. Maybe 3 tenters with cars. May be 40 people.

49. Physical Description
We usually end up with herded cats/ airstreamers parked as compactly as possible but still leaving ingress and egress for later comes and early outs. Center open space for my hand waving dust talk after Wed pot luck (please come Placers!!!) and Thursday event and other activities.

I like the Mash Tent to work with, and a Playa Post Card Office attached. but I don't have the tent either. We need to get more geologists or scientific talks.(oh that was fun announcing the camp in the serious GSN and NPS meetings last year...) I'm seldom in camp with 4 shifts at DMV and maybe one at the airport.

Now I turn into a pumpkin for a while, month long geotechnical drilling geology project starting in a few hours. Not much time to think dust, more like chaining up all day for mud.

If Mash is already being done, we should probably do something else.

Trailer Park Trailer Trash always works with as many tacky decorations as possible.
Most people seem to have ample supplies of "lawn art" and "garden sculptures"
as well as flocks of flamingoes, gnomes, and all sorts of blinky, lighted things to illuminate the shiny silver.
With a dusty geology flair to it all of course.

I would imagine Trailer Trash costumes (moopless) would be easy and fun too.
I can bring Cheez Whiz and crackers to class up the cocktail party.

*clinking mismatched plastic wine glasses* Cheers!

application sounds great!

I'd vote for the trailer trash over MASH tent. less expensive, easier to put up and -ahem- I don't know why exactly, ah, somehow, but TT and 'streams do seem to go together....not of course, that any of us would fit that description!
