So if their camp gets placed closest to the Esplnade, they are by default cooler then the people camped in the so called suburbs.
Eh. Lame. I ran into a camp like that last year. 90% of the stuff their website promised never materialized and mostly they hung around camp bitching about people and drinking beer. They're "long-time burners," though, so wtf do I know? (Except Mercury seemed like shit-hot real-estate for a camp that had no activies for outside participants.)
Hopefully the BRC peeps will wash out the land-grabbers. It sounds like a lot of camps might not have submitted cleanup plans or camp maps. With my luck we'll be placed at 11:30 and BumFuck, surrounded by grass.
