In the placement list, it looks like the max dimension between the named roads is 150'. Is this correct? I thought it was 170' last year.

Yup, it looks like they changed the dimensions to 150'

Here's what they did:

Did you feel the squeeze in 2007? Well there are some BIG changes to our city this year! Remove 2007's three inner blocks -- Esplanade through "C" -- and you have our new Esplanade for 2008. After the Esplanade, the streets for 2008 run A-K. Since we've taken the three shortest concentric streets from the inside, we added two longer concentric roads at the back of the city. The distance from the Man to the Esplanade road is increasing from 2200 to 2700 feet, which also means the length of the Esplanade grows over 2500 feet longer than last year. Click here to see a comparison against last year's plan. See you in Black Rock City!

Basically, the new plan appears to have longer, narrower sites.

Here's a revised layout for 150'. Note that the width has been increased to 230' from the previous 200'. This layout only allows for 18 attendees. Not everyone is going to put up an awning, so we'll have to make spacing mods as rigs arrive and state their actual needs (unless we want to get highly organized, reserve spots, make rules, buy berets...uhmm, I don't think so).

Hey, everybody got their pirate flags?????

I believe this will create an issue for how the longer rigs park (still attempting to avoid having to back in, as much as possible). As you arrive, pick your spot, but observe where the openings are on the opposite side, so that you don't park in a way that fills in your side so tightly that someone can't pull across to the other side. I think the shortest rigs will still be able to come in the entrance and make the turn to their center spots.

Note: The corners are critical to "defending the space" and should be filled as early as possible. Artstream and myself have claimed two of them--anyone else (I think so, but I don't want to read 29 pages of posts... )?

Perhaps str8strm (Ron) sailing the Mothership Moho could snag a corner location.
The Moho (aka party central) would be an excellent anchor.

As far as I know he'll be caravanning with us and arriving early Monday...Ron?

I can squeeze my monster 16 footer in the middle somewhere...or anywhere for that matter.

Could I be next to the pool behind the restaurant and spa? I don't want the cabana boys to have to walk too far...

Well Zepp, you got the poopy end toward the middle, pooey!
But probably cant be helped!
Be looking for the Silver Dragon to be lit up with an El Wire Aqua Dragon, I just ordered a bunch. With Red and Yellow fire breath. (they seem to be out of orange today) Can anybody draw a decent dragon? I hope to use the defunct Tv antenna for some elevation, maybe for the flames.

The Mothership and I are at your service. I would be happy to anchor if it works for the group. Ron

Gee Michael, I never thought of myself as a Paul Lynde type but (with hands waving frantically in the air) let's go with it. Ron

I was planning to bring a 2.5'x 6' table for the community but if we have two tables I can bring other things . I have some carpet pieces that should be helpful.
Any thoughts about what tools to bring?

A chalk sock


This is an important message from
The Great Humongous

Think about bringing replacement AIR FILTERS for your Tow Vehicle.

It is highly advisable that you replace the air filter as soon as you hit the pavement.

You can count on your air filter being completely clogged


"It's like sucking on a chalk sock"

Soon....

Thanks Charlyf for the carpet and table.

On the tools - I will bring the regular car tool kit, basic electrical tools needed for a trailer, a leatherman, couple pocket knives, big and small hammer, an extensive set of tools to work on and adjust bicycles including air pump, extra tubes and patch kit; rope, extension cords, and several types of duct tape - which prove invaluable to stop dust leaks.
I don't consider my nuclear powered partical accelerator an actual camping tool, its more like an experience, with colorful meters all over it.

I'm drawing on mylar graph paper over a digital side picture of the Silver Dragon. The graph lines would work to transfer a chalk line to the Dragon. Feel free to send some drawings! Hope velcro will hold the El wire sufficiently.

AllenPom withdraws from Rally

Friends;
I am collecting relatives faster than I figure out ways to get them beds to sleep on. I am looking forward to camping with my relatives, in particular my brother whom I have not seen in quite a while. My burning man mini family reunion is just increased to four trailers and two tents. I regret I must withdraw from the rally, but I will seek out the camp and plan to meet all of you. This is one of the most interesting groups of people I have come across in a long time. I have made this decision, I hope, early enough that the group can figure out how to provide a "Center Camp" canopy and a grey water evaporator that I was going to provide. Look for my 27' Overlander, a 74 Argosy, a 16' bambi, and a motorhome parked somewhere nearby. I look forward to spending time with you all at Burning Man.
Allen

Ok, I'll bring the tools.

Sorry to loose you Allen.
Look forward to meeting you on the Playa.

Safe,
