I was at 4:30 & Gestalt at Hair of the Dog--across from the Golden Cafe and next door to Costco. There always seemed to be something going on nearby.

If they maintain this new city plan, they shouldn't place theme camps on the circular streets (beyond a certain point from Esplanade - 'A' or 'B'), only radial.
I think my real problem with all of the centrally located fancy camps really was my newbie-ness. If there isn't any welcoming sign or agent, I am not going to just wander in to what looks like an exclusive social club - I am too respectful of people's space, and very wary of anything that looks cliquish, to do that.
with some camps you would walk up and they would be like, oh we are full, we're closed for a few hours, or will be opening latter, we are closed for a private function.

Well, my camp isn't/wasn't on the Esplanade, but we do have time that we are closed. Infact, we are only open a few hours each day, then a few hours at night. We are a small camp, and we have just enough people to run the camp. We like to go out and see the city sometimes too, and we like to rest, and to be honest, we get sick and tired of people sometimes and we just need a break.
When we are open, we make it obvious. We put out a big sign, not just saying that we're open, but what we are doing while we are open.

When we refuse, for a reason like we are having dinner at the moment, they would then demand a prize. This has happened several times. It's people like this that camps must have "closed" times, and make it clear to people that they are closed.

That being said it's better to have missed it then to come across as a demanding pompous ass. Couple the desire to be nice and respectful along with a strong case of shyness and it puts a serious crimp on experiencing much of what the playa has to offer.
AntiM wrote:(drinking whine) My biggest problem this year will be my newfound sodium benzoate allergy/reaction. Turns out the stuff makes me sick as hell and I haven't known this for years; doctors thought I had chronic fatigue or was a major hypochondriac (shut up). Trouble is that it is in almost all sodas and mixers and snowcone syrups and even occurs naturally in cranberries. Guess I'll be drinking wine or shots or bring along my own organic sodas. Bartenders are going to think I'm fussy, and yeah, I kinda have to be. Wah, no more chainsaw margaritas. (whine over)

Remember--you can do all the barbie mangling you want and send the results to Doc--or present them to him on-playa!mamagrrl wrote: I only wish they had a 'Pose-Your-Own-Barbie' area, so we can play along too! I'm thinkin' Duct Tape Barbie, psycho-style.
Okay, if I get any this year I'll donate them for that purpose. I still have many correct sized dildoes that I never put on last year's bunch, I can donate those too.mamagrrl wrote:Yes, but bringing barbies along required planning - and getting the frickin' themecamp on-site is more planning than I can generally handle in any one year.
I wanna mangle a barbie ON-Playa!
Maybe Barbie Death Camp could build a 'Processing Center' (read: box) where waiting Barbies can be selected and, errr... modified by Death Camp Fans for display and eventual re-processing.
Now here's a project that calls out for custom stamps!dusty_nipples wrote: The solution for shyness: Random Acts of Postcards.
