I love the idea of the kidville camp spin. You can count me and Deet in.

We're camping with the greeters, but will obviously be checking in at the conclave early in the week. We arrive on Saturday night.

So psyched and SO busy getting ready. We must pack most of our stuff by the end of next week (as we ship it out from NY ahead of time).

See y'a;; out there.

thanks roberts, but I think cody's your man in Reno/Sparks beerchug

I'd love to see the british or australian HOP contingent out on the playa, but its probably too far away confused

Oh, orbit, I think you were wanting to know when the Cirque de Flambe is performing on the playa? I can try to find out, but i think we're doing something most nights...

Orbit, it's great to have a gameplan for catiching fire shows. But I believe your favorate performances will be the ones you stuble across, the random ones on the playa. We call them Gorilla burns biggrin We show up at a random place crank out the big fire and then leave without a trace. So on the nights you don't have a plan, keep on the move and be a moth. wink

Roberts, Were leaving friday the 27th for the playa so we'll have to burn with you on the playa. Kero is here it's called Allied Washoe bring your own can they sell it out of a pump. smile

I'm posting a pre-Burningman reno burn event all are welcome if your in town early. biggrin

Since I'm not cody, I'll reply tongue - I took 2.5 gallons last year, but had some left over - depends on how much you're plannin' on spinnin!

We took 60 gallons of white gass and brought 30 back. Burners always need fuel. Take lots and share if you can. biggrin Depends on your wicks too. My 4"X4" catherdrials take up lots of fuel. and white gass goes alot quicker than kero. Depending on your transportation situation ( that rymes biggrin) 2.5 gallons is easier to carry. wink

Native - check to see if it's too late to apply for scholarship tickets.

Cody -- I thought last year that all I'd have to do is spot some fire and head for it... but that wasn't the case at all. Guerilla Burns are nice, and we even burned together a couple of times last year... (or maybe it was your twin brother?) At the end of the day, though, there is another whole side of poi - the choreographed show - that I want to see as well.

I'm already feeling overwhelmed by everything I want to do on the playa this year. It's my girlfriend's first time at BurningMan, my new camp's first year together, and we're going to be right on the corner where the esplanade ends and center camp begins -- closer to center camp than Conclave! So there will no doubt be a lot to do for my camp in terms of hosting guests... plus I'll be an Oracle at Playa Info.

As for Fuel... I brought 5 gallons of white gas and 5 gallons of lamp oil for 4 fire spinners in our camp. Although the others only spun a couple of times, I spun almost every night, PLUS I got there a few days early, PLUS I shared quite generously. I had a TON left over. Everyone I know brings too much fuel, and the Burning Man spirit is all about sharing... so I would almost suggest the opposite of what Cody's saying. Bring less fuel! 2 or 3 gallons ought to be fine. If you run out you can track me down and kick my arse, then take some of my fuel.

So WHEN is the HOP gathering?

I have been telling everyone the HOP Gathering is Thursday night just after dark. I think this is a good day to do it because most latecomers are there by thursday, and the conclave rehearsal is friday night. Orbit you are so generous for your offer of fuel. I have almost run out before at burningman (2000 & 2001) because I was sharing with everyone. But with as many firespinners at burningman now, all with the giving attitude, fuel may not be a problem. biggrin

The best way to tell me and my brother apart is he does staff, and I do poi. I have short hair now so that makes it even easier.

NATIVE it's come down to the line as far as your ticket is concerned. Now it's a test of character and your deternimation to get to burningman. You can get with a staffing agency and sweep floors at night and save up enough money for your ticket. Sell leomnade or mow lawns. Get creative and set your pride aside. A hard earned ticket is that much sweeter and people will respect you for your hard work. wink
Good luck biggrin

Tjoni start saving now and next year will be possible and very worth it.

The pre burningman creative juces are flowing. My girlfrend painted the inside of our trailer to look like outerspace and I have a new fire prop in creation. I don't want to divulge what it is, you'll have to come and see. I had to learn how to sweat copper and tie a fishing net to make it biggrin

Folks, no wonder he's so good! When fire touches him, he doesn't burn, but only heats up biggrin

To the contrary, inflamation of the a$$ is the exact opposite effect i.e. a$$ on fire

maybee its lead-in-the-assosis or lead-in-the-asspnia or lead-in-the-assacardia in need of an assenectomy biggrin
hmmmm (not a dr therefore don't care) tongue

offtopic

8/31/2004 1200 to 1400: Creating Comet Poi
8/31/2004 1300 to 1500: Beginner Poi
9/1/2004 1530 to 1700: Beginner Poi
9/1/2004 1500 to 1600: Creating Comet Poi
9/3/2004 1230 to 1400: Beginner Poi
9/3/2004 1200 to 1300: Creating Comet Poi (if supplies remain)

See you on the Playa
