Hopefully not at the expense of their neighbors.
I have heard horror stories of unprepared burners having their unsecured shelters wipe out other people's camps when the shade structures turned into ballistics.
I have experienced a horror story where an entire camp next door was blown the F up, and because they were associated with our camp, ended up staying most of the week under our roof....and sometimes sleeping in our beds when you get back from a long night...and sometimes using our stuff without asking..and sometimes....well I think you get the picture.
My 2nd burn I did not test my shade structure at home. It was a cheap popup, and it literally fell apart as I was putting it up. So, back in the bag it went and I had to rely on friends shade. Which seriously sucked for me, and really pissed them off.
Never, ever, ever will I let that happen again!! I test everything at home, and assume serious winds. Everything is secure, and if it fails it will only be my problem.
You do NOT
want to be that camp that fucks other people's burn. Listen to the experience being offered.
