Count on me to stay through final MOOPage (till Tuesday am?). I still feel bad about abandoning camp early last time...

Let's stay until the Rangers threaten us!

BTW, RMB, the rake is a great idea.

Damn, youíre staying til the end and Iím going to miss it! 😎
Next year Iíll bring a bottle with your name on it.

Yep...rakes, buckets, and bags oh my. And those long handled pick up things. Itís amazing what you find when mooping. Sunglasses, headlamps, Burning Man Swag, and lots of cigarette butts. Last year RMB and I found some tent stakes that looked like theyíd been there for years. And whatever interesting items have blown loose from neighboring camps. Be careful about the mats you bring as the fibers in some are really hard to contain.

You can stay til Tuesday but if you linger too long you will get a visit from the Rangers. Ahem. It happens. 😏

Enjoy!!!

Hello all!


My husband, Conroy, and I are headed to BM, and would LOVE to join you all! We plan to be there the whole time, and until all MOOPing is done.



We'd love to contribute as much as possible, and will plan on bringing postcard stamps. Any idea how many have been needed in years past?


I saw that russellt is bringing an evaporator. That is awesome, and I love the extra water idea! In the vein of offering hydration at the bar, perhaps we could make iced/herbal tea... we'll think on this and will plan on contributing something in this line.


RMB mentioned that help may be needed for helping set up the volcano car...We'll be able to arrive early, are fairly handy, and can most likely be called in at the last minute.



For The Wrangler: We're in a 25' FB w/ full size pickup. No generator, no black tank.



Really excited for both BM and to camp with fellow Airstreamers! If there is anything else I should bring/know/share, just let me know!



Paige

Paige, you are more than welcome. And you seem to have covered all the major "participation" points. Super. We'll see if we can get you early arrival. I assume it's two of you?

Someone else will have to chime in on the number of postcards, but it was significant.

Hey, I don't understand "no black tank." If you're in an FB, you're in a new-ish Airstream? What gives?

Thank you!


Dr. Quark...I should correct myself. We do indeed have a black tank, but it is combined with our gray tank, as we use a composting toilet. I mention it so that you know we don't need access to the pump truck


No need to go out of anyone's way to get us in early...Just if the need exists, and the access is granted, we can be available (and yes, we are two ).



Excited to meet you all!!


-Paige

We will all be interested in seeing your plumbing setup.

I'll keep you in mind for early arrival. That's always fun, you get to see the city come alive. We appreciate that you're willing to stay behind for the MOOP phase. Thanks.

The Mutant Vehicle and I will arrive on Wednesday the 22 around noonish .... Will anyone else be there that early? Zepp? Just wondering about Placement .

Thanks lots for the offer to help assemble the VVV! Its not difficult but it is clumsy to manipulate stuff alone and far easier with two!

Rake and magnet broom are loaded .

Lastly, is anyone in need of a ticket?

If I read Perry's email correctly, early arrival isn't until Thursday, 23 Aug. Two years ago I arrived about 11:40 PM and had to wait at Will Call until midnight to get in so, at least in my case, Gate was very strict about not allowing early arrival prior to the time I was approved for (same time as all of us, eg, 00:01 the day of early arrival).

If you have a different early arrival from DMV due to your mutant vehicle, only those with similar passes will be allowed in prior to Thursday. All of the passes that Perry hands out are for Thursday.

Coming early and tanks

Hey, we were thinking of coming early as well but need to figure out our days as we're driving from the east coast. I'm a bit worried about coming too early as well cause we're bringing our 2yr old for the first time so unsure how he will fair the whole week... :P

Would love to know how everyone does the week with their tanks and stuff... If you have a grey and black tank do you avoid using the black because of the heat? What about the pump truck, is that easy to use and is there a fill truck? If they are, I imagine people can use all tanks and even have showers pretty easily but just not sure about the availability of that stuff.

Last time we tented, so using an RV at BM is all new for me...

Any recommendations or stories on the best way to use the tanks?

Thanks, looking forward to meeting everyone!

Jon, Olga, Jayden
