*CLOSED* Camping Spot with RevoFuckinLution for Ticket

*CLOSED* Camping Spot with RevoFuckinLution for Ticket

Postby PapaBear2120 » Fri Jul 29, 2011 10:41 am

EDIT: along with the benefits listed below, we'll pay the face value of the ticket. EDIT: And on top of that: If you sell us your ticket, but aren't going, we'll give these benefits below to your bestest buddy!!!!! Free food, all week. Three meals a day. All the dank micro-beer that person can drink!!!!

We're still desperate to find tickets for some of our coordinators, so here's a trade offer.

We'll give you a spot in our sleeping bays (60'X20' shells we construct) and let you camp with us! What does this entail? I'm glad you asked.

We run a night time pub on the Playa serving 30 kegs of IPFuckingA and other homebrew throughout the week. We also have a full service kitchen that puts out three extremely delicious meals a day for all of our campers. You will never eat so well in the default world as you eat at our camp. We set up a sound system and we rock tunes for our guests and our campers to enjoy. We build a shower... yes... a shower. The general layout of the camp is three 25' domes, a bar, a dance floor, and a lounge. Two sleeping bays and a 20' X 20' kitchen bay.

Everyone who camps with us pays dues of $200 to enjoy all these benefits. We'll gladly pay for whatever above the $200 your ticket says on it!

RevoFuckinLution has won awards the last two years for being one of the best bars on the Playa. Now you, that's right, YOU can find out from the inside why we win awards!

We do ask that you be a fully functioning member of our camp. That means you work the bar, help clean, etc. All the normal maintenance that a camp requires. Burning Man is all about participation, isn't it?

Please email me if you're interested! papabear2120 @ gmailDOTcom

Can I get a "FUCK YEAH," please???!!!?

Like what? Chamber of Commerce? Fodors? AAA Guide? Village Voice? BRC Weekly? Cites?


(If your coordinators didn't buy tickets, it might be time for new management...)

Awards, I know, right? Certainly nothing official.

The first was in '09 from a guy who is part of the Necklace Factory. He made beautiful posters, with a matching patch, and an engraved medal. There were 350 of these passed out. It was quite an amazing experience when this man showed up in a dusty brown suit, fedora, and a beat up suit case. I had to sign this huge book and, while tripping balls, he explained to me the whole process of the awards and why he does it. My kitchen coordinator that year started crying while he was talking. The only part of the speech I remember verbatim was, "Just to confuse you more, I gave the people who built the man three awards this year, and I'm giving you three awards." It was an experience I'll never (completely, even if it's a bit hazy) forget.

Last year, it was a group of cool guys that had welded rebar into the shape of a man and stuck it on a trophy stand. It says, "Best Bar on the Playa."

Anyway, awards, especially at the Burn, are all from the perspective of those giving them out. All it really means to us, and anyone who would take us up on this offer, is that people appreciate and love our camp and energy.

Our head kitchen coord broke his leg this winter and he's been saving up to get a ticket while out of normal work. I'm trying anything to make sure we can get him a ticket. Without him, our kitchen won't run as amazingly as it does every year :)

Here are the other two awards we won. How can you not want to help a theme camp that gets "Bad Ass Bar" and "Best Dressed"???? :)

Still can't find anyone that wants to camp with us and be fed for free for a week. You don't need to camp with us to be fed. And at the very least, help us feed our camp by selling us a ticket so we can get our kitchen coordinator in!

So here's some enticing pictures of our camp:

Sure thing Cryptofishist,

There's a website with information about the structure design and the guy who first created it I'll post below. Easier than trying to explain it myself :)

http://www.toad.com/gnu/clifs-shade-structure.html

My first year was in '05 with Swingers Lounge and the structure design had been in use for a few years by them before I joined. They got their design from Cliff (an Oregon Country Fair connection). Cliff told me they used to use bamboo for the design at one point. Anyway, me and some buddies took over Swingers Lounge in '07 and renamed the camp CarboFuckiNation, I renamed it again in '09 as RevoFuckinLution.

We did some updates and fixes to the design. The biggest one that won't be listed on the web page is that we switched the cross sections into a single metal piece. It's one cross of metal, about 1' square, that the PVC slides into. The pressure from bending the PVC keeps it in place. The other update we did was to take out the bolts that would keep the PVC connected and insert one and half inch PVC into the two inch PVC. The smaller diameter sticks out a foot and is screwed together on one end. This way we just slide the long poles over the smaller pieces and, once again, the pressure keeps it connected. Much easier than laying it all out, lining up the holes, putting in bolts, and twisting nuts on.

If you got any questions after checking out the web page, I'll be glad to answer them :)

It's not exclusive :) We run a bar at the Playa and give away all our beer. We're just open from dusk till our allotment of kegs for the night runs out. The benefit is you can come and drink even when we're closed and we'll feed you!

9 o'clock and the Portal! We're usually a camp back from the Esplanade. So not in quite in the midst of 24 hour party city, but just on the edge of it. Keeps us popping when we're open and mellow when we're closed during the day :)

We've found a ticket for our Kitchen Coordinator!!! Thanks for contacting me or even reading these posts :)

We need a few more tickets if anyone out there has any, but we can't offer this trade anymore. Too few camp members and too much awesomeness to bring to the Playa!
