Hey fellow favorite dusyites, it's application time and my verbosity quotient is a few quarts low and I need some help to imanginate us back onto the playa, especially with the Interactivity and Acculturalization questions. :::::::::::::::::::::::
...
Final maps are due July 1.

Interactivity ...
....
(This is the most important information we are collecting from you).

Project Interactivity *This question is required.
What interactive aspects does your project include? Please check all that apply.
• Primarily Day Time
...
• Scheduled Events -- lectures
• Acculturation for First time Burners -- yes, and we have demonstrated this in the past as we drag in stray Streamers and get them integrated
...
• Crafts -- design your postcards
• Create an Environment -- self contained boondocking
...
• Education Based -- geologists
...
• Games -- yes
...
• Entertaining Guests -- open house
• Environmentally conscious -- solar and minimal footprint
..

...

Acculturation *This question is required.
Familiarizing newer Burning Man event participants to our culture and community is a vital role of Placed Camps.
How does your camp encourage Participation, teach about the 10 Principles and set expectations about what it means to be a Burner?
Please describe how your Camp acculturates its members and the greater community.
...
I'll do a draft for this, and a map

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 400 words.

“How we support the 10 principles” might weigh a lot. Following are my thoughts; i.e., total BS:
We welcome and respect the stranger. All strays are included in our gatherings and potluck meals. Participation is valued and members interact and collaborate with neighbor camps. Generous gifting includes the postcard activity and gifts (generous adult beverage giveaways to support dance camp bars; traypass breakfast to neighborhood, etc). We demonstrate decommodification and radical self-reliance with the individualization and playa adaptivity of the branded product that brings us together. We are self contained and in a position to help others and be a resource for individuals with less hardy shelters. Communal Effort and Civic Responsibility 
are supported by our well-attended playa talks. What the hell is “immediacy” anyway? And our self contained trailers mean less impact to the portapotty system, and members are continually harangued to moop and are physically flogged by camp leadership if they Leave A Trace.

Ya, this is close! Except if you'll notice I try not to invite the city to our potluck if I can help it. (Think of the lines Tuna Camp used to have and they didn't advertise) Hmm, I wonder is flogging one of the items on the list? Over at Spankys Wine Bar I think for sure. Thanks guys!

How about this NevadaGeo?


Project Interactivity *This question is required.

• Primarily Day Time


The day time is busy with the Post Card Construction station , the welcoming bar, foot massages and general bonhomie. We organize the camp so that the corner of the street we have occupied in the past is an open courtyard where people are welcome to drop in. All our camp members meet in this courtyard - rather than in hidden shady nooks - so there is always activity going on which induces others to join us.

We try to exude "Welcomeness" and always invite passing Burners to stay a while. Its has proven to be a successful approach. The informaility, absence of structured positioning and edifices, indeed, the seeming "amateurishness" & spontaneity of it all, combine to make Burners feel quite welcome.

• Scheduled Events -- lectures
• Acculturation for First time Burners -- yes, and we have demonstrated this in the past as we drag in stray Streamers and get them integrated
...
• Crafts -- design your postcards
• Create an Environment -- self contained boondocking
...

• Education Based -- geologists & Gynocologists (when not on call)
...

378 words follow:


The Airstreameri is a self-contained camp of 22 Airstream camping trailers, from the 1950s up to this year’s models. The trailers and tow vehicles are arranged in two semicircles with a welcoming portal on the main street. Our portal is flanked by our highly popular (and public) Burners’ post card art activity and manikin-manned shade structure relaxation bar. Our only “structure” is an open-sided 14x24 tent canopy where the community gathers for meals and the annual “Playa Vicinity Geology and Ecology” lecture. Most of the Airstreams have roll-out awnings and they are parked in a way that allows for mutual shade and wind barrier support between pairs of trailers. This is a great aid for our 4 tent campers, since we provide pre-planned spots for them to nestle in among the Airstreams. The tow vehicles are parked between pairs of Airstreams on the non-awning side, which makes for a very compact camp. Each pair of Airstreams provides its own power from solar or small, quiet generators that are run only during the day. Other features of the camp are two gray water evaporation ponds, a required Moop container at each Airstream, a fire pit/burn barrel, and a physical arrangement that provides easy entry for large service vehicles (fire, water, sewage service). We start with a plan but remain flexible enough to accommodate being placed at a corner (preferred) or in the middle of a block. This flexibility has allowed the Airstreameri to welcome first time Airstream Burners (and other RV Burners as space permits) who obviously need some Acculturation. We are happy to provide! In addition to welcoming these strays into our camp, we encourage other Burners, through our open portal, to see how we use our Airstreams as self-contained boondocking environments throughout the year. The Airstream community is the original American Caravansary—famous for caravans around the world. The most famous is the Cairo to Cape Town journey in 1959, but the Silk Road Caravan, the ultimate trailer trip, followed a path mapped by Marco Polo in the late 13th century. This 403-day trek covered 31,000 miles and wound its way through Singapore, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Portugal, Syria, Thailand, and Russia. Burners are encouraged to stop by and get a taste of our caravan lifestyle.

I think it is important to emphasize the caravan history of the Airstream and possibly get a prominent shout out from the Burning Man organizing/placement committee. If so we'd need to add a lecture and photos/posters as part of our welcoming portal. Photos of mud holes and broken axles as well as parking in Red Square.

I'll ask Pee Wee and see what he can do for us. Or maybe Archie could?

I'm liking this as a side theme! Dale wants specific locations, caravans. If we ask him nicely he might help us, he was there and might still have the tee shirt. This sounds like some good stuff to build on for the camp! I'll even use the beret emoto

Dang it, Bob and I wish we were going! We both expect you will have a good time for us. Be forwarned, that we will be there in 2015 with a new "art" piece to burn - we are designing and planning it already!


All the best!
