Perry,

Do you (or anyone) know what the frontage and depth dimensions are this year? The same as 2011? What about the double depth blocks? I need these dimensions -- we'll size our layout to take the full depth of a normal block or half of a double. For 24 Airstreams we'll need at least 250 x 150.

One drawing I have has 18 Airstreams in 200 x 170. I don't have a date on that drawing which begs the question, are the block depths 170'?

I think the options were 150', 200' or 250' frontage; the acreage checks were by how many folks in camp; 16,000, or 24,0000 or 28,000 square feet. I think the 28,000 feet was for 60 to 70 people. Makes it hard to be too flexible who can come and go when during the week, and keep an alley for the vacuum truck and we never know what the shape and depth is before we get there. Or who will show and who won't show.

After a two year absence..

After being overcome by events and missing the last two burns I will be back this year with my new bride from the Philippines, Jessica. I hope to revive some foodie traditions, hot coffee for the neighboring pup-tents, Mark's playa Bloody Mary's (pardon the poetic license on punctuation), bacon, salami (memories of RG's hospitality) and super nachos. I am sure there will also be some Philippine delicacies.

However in opposition to the cargo cult theme I have promised myself not to bring too much stuff this year (just older and wiser.)

I am looking forward to meeting with you all.

Hi Everyone

You can add this to the description: I wil be bringing down a "Medical Clinic " front to attach on the end of a cargo trailer hopefully to face the street... Think of a cabin front or structure. An, if it doesnt cost too much I will be bringing down an art installation for the Playa. I am in contact with Arty now.

Cheers,

M

From here passed to many more hands until it reaches its final destination. or: Scientific experiments with playa dust and pH meter. Wednesday evening science talks, we might give dusty questions to your dusty answers in an impressive arm waving Geol type talk.

Sign up on the Burning man Rally page

Hellooooo, there are only 122 days to go for Burning Man. It would be helpful for all those thinking of attending to signify there intentions on the rally calendar page located at:

Airstream Forums - Burning Man 2013

Let the theme camp planners know if you are committed to coming at this point, your vehicles and space needs, or even your tentative plans. Let's get the community communicating...
Thank you,
Mark

Well, we're going; sideways, backways, dustways, playaways, maplicated, and duly applicated. Now its up to you all to plan-ify this thing together. We won't know for a month or two whether the placement gods like what we sent them and will invite us to be a Placed Theme Camp with all the required duties of every one in camp as listed in the application.
Study up on the old Survival Guide-s, and this year's new Survival Guide, for the required 5 questions for the initial acculturalization exam. (it's in the application)

I hope somehow we can align our units to make a courtyard of sorts rather than helter skelter as last year. It would be nice to have a little community in a "U" facing the street don't ya think? I want to wake up and see Pink across the courtyard making breakfast and looking good!

Two of us arrive early on Saturday so if we can do anything to help set up. just say so.

Calling all Airstreamers, Geologists and Gynocologists who like to play with fire.

I am bringing an art piece to place on the Playa and I want to burn it all up on the Thursday when such things are done. I need a "Fire Safety Team" to patrol the safety circle around the burn and to keep the over enthusiastic from jumping into the fire I suppose.

I will need about 10 people for 45 mins ( its not a large piece) to be part of the FST and supervise the fire.. Care to volunteer? I could use you - In fact, without you, I can't burn the thing!

Cheers

Isn't Thursday the night the CORE projects burn? I'm already working fire perimeter for a CORE project. You might find that there is some competition on Thursday, both for audience attention and for potential volunteers.

Note from Placement

And now, a note from the Placement gods. I think Zep's plan drawing takes care of the "wall of RVs" concern, we have lots of activity going on:

Placement Newsletter Memorial Holiday edition


Dear Theme Camps,

I�ve been think about Black Rock City all weekend long. This holiday Monday seems to have me dreaming about the desert and getting excited about seeing our great city one more time.

As I read all of the Theme Camp questionnaires, I can just picture how wonderful the playa will be this time around.

However, over the years, I�ve been noticing a trend emerging. The RV fortress is becoming common place and common practice. The what? The large square of RVs all facing each other and creating a wall to keep people out and privacy in.

You are building a theme camp and inviting people into your front yards in into your homes. Thank you for creating something so open and inviting.

Let�s try to come up a new way of keeping our private spaces private without making walls and having long dark passages down our city streets. I know that the walls of RVs helps with getting them serviced, but I still think we can do better.

If you must make a fortress, think about the visual impact it creates on the street and avenue sides. I invite you to apply some of your visionary creativity to solve this aesthetic issue.

Thank you for taking some time to think about this and spread the word that RV fortresses are not our best work. We can do better. I have every faith in all of us.

Sincerely,

- Answergirl

Placement Team Manager
