Hello all you dancers out there. We can’t wait to see you again on the playa, whether you’re discovering Tango and Blues Dancing for the first time or are fresh off a European teaching tour.
Wanna come dance with us? We’ll be back next to Center Camp this year, Inner Circle at 4:15. We’re close enough to our spot from last year that you can refer to the 2012 map below and schedule of classes and dances, which will be staying mostly the same this year.
Wanna come camping with us? We are full for 2013, but come back later to apply for 2014 by clicking on the Interested In Camping With Us page up in the right hand corner.
A four-cycle gas motor like the one in most cars has been described as “suck, squeeze, bang, blow”. Many burner camps go through an annual cycle that looks a lot like this; it’s get ready for the burn (squeeze), experience the burn (BANG!), go home, breath out and decompress (blow), and coast along having your regular life until it’s time to inhale and start prep again (suck).
That means that from September until sometime in the spring, our websites look kinda stale. Mailing list traffic is low. Every once in a while someone mentions they just found some more playa dust on something, or finishes doing that perfect edit of their photos and movies, or gives up on the perfect edit and just throws that stuff right up onto facebook.
Spring is a little early this year; the changes in ticketing mean that some of us have woken up from our climate-controlled not-covered-in-dust quiescence. We’ve poked at websites and anxiously sat by our computers wondering if the BOrg’s software will really work, or if we’ll stare at the “please wait” screen until long after everyone has bought tickets and gone to dinner, or at least thought “Oh hey, better sign up for STEP.”
Good Morning, campers.
Have some bacon if that’s your thing, or a nice piece of pineapple. Read the news, look out at the snow if you have any. And start thinking, start planning. This is the desert calling. The pendulum is swinging from “breath out” to “breath in”. No need to rush, it’s early yet, but start thinking about the heat and the cold and the beauty and the madness, the music and the colors and the sounds of your campmates laughing, vomiting, screwing. When the time comes, be ready to bring it.
