how insaine would it be to have every body at the same time out on the playa doing something-like the hokie pokie-everybody just shakin what ya got--geez now that would be a big circle. even a nice cha-cha line one night would be fun.

Someone was trying to get us all to dance to some song played over the radio at the same time before the burn. Why is this a consistant fantasy? What's the appeal?

btw, I put my left foot out. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out.

Triple Rainbow????? What year was that? I saw a double rainbow there last year (2007) for the first time in my life (and I'm over 60). I would have loved to have seen the triple rainbow.

The 2007 rainbow was triple as seen from some places on the playa.

There already is a Hokey Pokey Camp - has been for some years now. In addition to dancing, they are a wonderful presence on the playa, their gift of 12 step meetings and an open camp 24/7 for people who want to maintain their sobriety is a blessing and oasis for many.

If everyone dances, shouldn't it be mambo or samba?

Mambo or Samba...YES!!!!

Wow. This was the first I heard anyone say it was a triple. I guess I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time--again. :cry:

What Pinemom was saying is that you are too late. Hokey Pokey Camp has existed for several years on 3:00 plaza. Besides the daily noon Hokey Pokey dance with as many folks as they can get, they have an AA meeting at 5:30 every evening and its a great place for people trying to stay sober on the playa to find a refuge.

*edit* and if I'd pay more attention I would have noticed that mojo already said this... oh well.
Don't go complicating my reality with facts.
