Shady Asylum goes to extraordinary lengths to keep their sod from drying up and MOOPing the play.
It is completely contained within their enclosure, and has never been a problem. If it becomes a problem,
the exception will be withdrawn.
They have an exemplary record of doing this right. One year they consulted to another camp who had the same idea,
and when Shady's logistics was explained, the other camp decided they couldn't pull it off. But Shady does.
They are the exception that proves the rule.
They are listed under their new name, by the way: http://www.burningman.com/themecamps/th ... =2012&ci=G
You all now know one of the 'precious playa secrets'. I hope you enjoy a barefoot visit to this rare camp installation.
~ Retro, Placement
p.s. The oil derrick did it wrong. Put an uncontained needle-shedding redwood sapling on the post-burn site.
p.p.s. We don't actually update the list of camps requesting placement, once our placement decision is made.
They still requested placement, and they may still do their camp in a non-reserved area.
I will not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone . . . there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
