Our first year as Camp Aftermath was a huge success in my opinion! Sure we had tons of set-backs early in the week with equipment breaking but our decision to bring backups of literally EVERYTHING turned out to be very wise
One of our structures was hopelessly broken by the first major wind, but from that point on it looked like a ruin which lent itself very well to our post-apocalyptic theme so we just left it. People were still able to get inside and sleep (and they did!) so overall I think that it turned out just fine. Our genny and tv complete with an ever-changing collection of cold war propaganda and wwi wwwii newsreels worked every night in stark defiance of all my fears (granted the generator almost seized day one and took a good hour and a half of repairs but it purred like a very very loud raspy kitten from that point on).
We took a major hit in the numbers department right before the event and went down with only 3 people, but were still able to build the camp and provide all the services we promised! Definitely never going to do it with so few people again, here's hoping a year's worth of recruiting (HINT HINT - We're in Bozeman, MT - PM me if you're nearby and want to join up!) will fix that issue. Also, going to a dome or two is probably part of next year's plan unless we find another way to secure our structures.
Hope everyone else had a great burn, we certainly did!
