and now i'm curious as what this jiffy lube is.

a meet at noon? I thought noon is siesta time in that heat, but if that's the time it's going to be,.. I'll try to be there then.



It is hot, but Center Camp is nice and shady. In the past a daytime hour was chosen because people often have commitments, performances, etc. at night.

As to Jiffy Lube, given that this is a pg thread I can't really say what goes on there...let's just say it's primarily for men -- mostly gay and those who are straight in "real life", but while at Burning Man are...experimenting.

Posted:Daytime is also nice because you can actually see the crazy tricks people bring. Even if you miss the HoP meet and greet, stop by center camp any day and you are bound to run into a HoPer or two.

Hehe Jiffy Lube, one of the very few camps to ever be censored... at Burning Man! What has this world come to. But my lawyer says I'm not allowed to talk about that camp smile

HoP Meet and Greet

Wednesday at noon.

Center camp, the side facing the Man.

Look for happy spinny circus people!

Posted:I'll be there, sorry I disappeared for a while there. As you may or may not know one of the spinners in my group, Sam, passed away at burningman last year. Don't worry, we are all still burning strong and the group is stronget than ever. That strength came from Sam and now our group Controlled Burn is pending Not for profit status and we set Reno afire many nights a week. I hope to meet everyone (finally.) We were in a bit of a funk last year as could be expected.

See you all there. biggrin

Oh, and for those of you who remember him, Pyromancer is coming back this year. He is an amazing performer and a great guy. smile www(dot)pyromancer(dot)nl

Posted:Invite to Khan, and all you wonderful Burning Man peoples! Specially the ones coming from far away....

Come to Salt Spring to decompress after the festivities!

If you are coming all the way across the world, take some time to enjoy North America, and be sure to come up to Salt Spring Island! I would be happy to host any and all travellers that care to find their way to the coast and up north, just a little past the border into Canada. We can set up some workshops if you wish, here, Victoria or Vancouver, or just laze about feasting on good organic food, swimming and kayaking. It really is one of the most beautiful places in the world, just come on by and I will show ya around!

Loads of people from Vancouver and Victoria head down to BM and you might be able to arrange a lift back here afterwards through Craig's list ...

hope to see ya!

Posted:Lightning sweet! We have quite the HoP list this year. I can't wait to see everyone again.

To everyone flying: I suggest you ship your fire equipment out there if possible. Who knows what the airlines will be confiscating now. I'm planning on shipping everything so I have no carry on or checked luggage. Even if your equipment gets through baggage check there is a chance they will lose it, happens every year to someone I know.
