2010 USDA / Big Red Bus Camp
Update! We have been given Esplanade and 5pm. Word!
Our proposed layout is tight
with the hopes of getting some Esplanade space to run the robots this year.
Citizens and tentative citizens of the town - this list will grow as we
determine which of the past USDA citizens are interested in making our
projects happen this year.
YOUR RESPONSE IS REQUIRED (down at the bottom).
Here is how it works. We have three zones:
As you are probably aware, you are not staying in Dave's Bus.
You are probably also not travelling in Dave's Bus, unless we
have already talked about it.
The Spider is not a fully public space as it was in 2007, it
is camping space like in 2008 and 2009 and it is essentially claimed
by the people who were going to be on my Robot Crew.
So chances are you are staying in the Annex! What does this
mean? This means you are going to have a great time, because
you are staying with the most awesome camp at Burning Man, but
we have a few simple rules.
- Dave's Bus
- The tri-sectioned USDA shade structure ("The Spider")
As seen in photos from last year
- The USDA Annex, next to the tri-section next to The Spider
If you are staying in The Spider, then you must be there
for setup (Sun/Mon) and teardown (Mon/Tues after). If this is
a problem, let us know now.
Here is the crew list I know of, in group order, if you are not
coming or know someone else I may be missing, let me know immediately.
- The Spider is not a public space or public kitchen.
There will be a kitchen in the Spider, and it will be used
by the people camping in Spider. Perhaps they will decide
to let you use it, perhaps not, but do not expect to have
a kitchen available to you! Bring a camping stove if you
don't have access to one.
- LEAVE NO TRACE
Non-negotiable. This is one of the main tenents of Burning Man,
and we follow it in USDA. The following are requirements:
- During the week: nothing in camp that can blow away.
- When leaving, two hour sweep on the open playa for MOOP
(this is part of BRC requirements)
- After packing up, a walking/crawling sweep with a "fine tooth
comb" of your impact area with expanded boundaries, repeated
until nothing is found. This usually takes three sweeps at
least, we're talking finding glitter and hairs. It doesn't take
that long, but it must be done. We've managed to get green status
on our camps the last two years, and it's going to happen again.
Red rows are UNCONFIRMED. That means you aren't in the town yet, bucko!
There's a lot of question marks there.
I need to know the following:
|David Madison / Mango Boy
|Mr. Peterson / Generator
|Daniel Greenhouse / Disco Dan
(2 spots 8x20)
|Note: Eric borrowing bike
|Cooper / Spaceboy
||16' 2V PVC
- If you are coming or not (and with who)
- Camp size (basic floorplan, like 10'x20' is fine)
- Optionally, knowing how you are getting there and how many
years you have been and any playa name you have would be nice.
Disclaimer: Do not try this at home.
Do not try this at someone else's home.
Do not try this anywhere. It's too stupid.
