HI.
Me and my nice danish boyfriend don't have a camp. But we would like one!!!!

Can we join?

We can offer:
- sewing machine services (boyfriend is designer - we will bring a sewing machine for customizing designs during BM)
- naming our future baby (I am 20 weeks pregnant - and we haven't found the perfect name for the li'l girl - but terminated to find it on the playa!)
- whatever this camp is in need of:) We arrive in San fran wednesday - and will do the last camp shopping the remaining days, as we can't fly everything in from Denmark.
So please let us know how we can contribute, if we can join that is.

Hopeful thought, can't wait!!

love,
Kat

Panxil and Aphid here!

We've been lurking on this thread since its infancy and watching with keen interest. Said interest has achieved critical mass, and now we would like to formally declare our desire to join Camp Hotel Rug. The mixture of informality, enthusiasm and delocalized constituency has us sold!

We are both from Seattle. This will be my 6th burn and Aphid's ecstatic first. My core group of camp-mates have all taken the year off, yet I must be out of sync as this is the right year us to go! We will of course be bringing everything needed for our own survival, but hope to pool additional resources for the good times. Our spacial footprint is mostly one large tent; we are catching a ride with folks from a separate camp.

We are especially proud to offer services of visual discernment, including but not limited to:
- picking up MOOP from the playa
- plucking of rogue bodily or facial hairs
- identification of typographical errors or amino acid substitutions

Happy travels, and we look forward to meeting everyone in one week!

Excellent! I'm getting excited.

So, where do we stand with everything? Camp Hotel Rug @ what location? Just trying to figure out our destination once we get through the gates

I hope it's a treadle machine. Or that you have a gennie.

Destination? Playa Info in center camp. Look up "Camp Hotel Rug" and "Hotel Rug Camp" and whatever until you find where they've camped.

This camp isn't pre-registered so there won't be an assigned location. Once gates open it's land grab time!

The shaded blocks are reserved, and the unshaded blocks will quickly fill from the inner rings out:
http://www.burningman.com/preparation/maps/13_maps/2013_Final_Web_LG.pdf

Regarding communications:
Airbender et al will be putting a sign at the road sign at 7:00 @ C
Camp Hotel Rug will hopefully be registered with Playa Info @ Center Camp as well.

Are there any plans for a tentative meet-up before the stakes are thrust into the ground?
How about a desired target location that we can aspire towards? (eg, 8:15 & D)

Should we discuss and determine a rough estimate of the area that we'll need to fit everybody? How many cars, RVs, tents, shade structures, etc do we figure we'll have around?

Mhhh, that's a good point panxil, Since we will be posting our location at 7:00 and C, I suggest we try finding some space around there (I like the 9:00 half better anyways :D). It seems we have grown quite a bit, so let's figure out space. Three of us will be bringing a pick-up truck, 3 tents, and the ez-up.

Judging by the number of people who have entered themselves into the spreadsheet, and around 7 vehicles, I'm calculating at least 30m x 30m. Depending on how many canopies and shade we have for the common area. Sounds reasonable?

Nice! I'm going to feel like such a plebeian bringing my meager allotted luggage :,(

A few things about me though! I'm a self professed great cook. I've got a few fancy camp dishes up my sleeve that I plan on bringing. I think I might be the youngest one in the group, coming in at 18. This won't be my first burning man, I came last year. I have experience with monkey huts, so if any of you need help setting them up I can help for sure. Last year we forgot our spine piece and were still able to set it up thanks to our lovely neighbors who had extra rebar for us to set up guy lines and use rope as our spine. I'm bringing a pretty small 1-2 person tent. I'll also be bringing a silver tarp 8x12 and putting it over my tent for shade. That or it can be put toward other shading/flooring if someone has tent shade. I'm gonna be doing all my last minute shopping over the next few days.

One thing that's continued to be a problem for me is my water transportation. Since I'm coming in on the burner express bus I'm allowed 4 large luggage items and 1 oversized item (my bike). I want to keep my water down to "1 luggage item" but this would require me bringing a 10 gallon (read: 86lb) cooler. I think only a 5 gallon jug would be realistic. Now, I wonder if bringing 1 five gallon jug isn't unreasonable for someone who also plans on bringing other hydrating bottled drinks. Right now my setup consists of a shelter box, containing my tent, tarps, stakes, repair kit(duct tape), and bedding. Then I've got a box for clothing, costumes, and other small goodies. And then my food container, with cooking device, propane, and you guessed it food and drink. This leaves me with a luggage item for water and my bike.

Thoughts/criticisms of what I've got are certainly welcome. If you think I'm grossly missing something, let me know.

Hiya....we are 5 girls from London (23yrs-26yrs) and all Burner virgins....we have wanted to do this for a few years and this year have finally got it together and done it! We have got a RV (it's 30' long...) and will be fully self sufficient...we'll be driving from Vegas....stop off at Lake Tahoe and then onto Black Rock City which we aim to be at by Sunday night... we haven't joint a camp but even though will be self sufficient want to get involved and share our experience with people! Will there be space for us as I can see most people have got tents.. we seem to have a monster truck :? if there is we'd love to join you and will add our names to the list! We bring food, music, drinks and laughter!

I have a standard monkey hut w/ shade flap and I park my vehicle as an anchor for the flap so figure 12' X 24'ish footprint. I'm pretty cramped for space but I will try to throw in a couple of extra 2.5gal water jugs for Therapist. I''ll bring a spare cooler for shared space (adequately stocked, of course). I'll also have a few snacks and treats with me. I'll probably have a few spare cheapo tarps (more suitable for ground cover than flapping in the wind I would think). Spare rebar, bungees, clips, paracord, lights, etc.

Oh, I'm probably close to, if not, the oldest in the group. No worries, I'm rarely accused of acting my age.

Hi Playa friends! Well, I just got my ticket and I'm fired up for my 6th Burn. Usually I am part of an 80's camp but this year my friends can't
make it... so is there room for one more? I have a truck & an 18 foot trailer (it's not crazy big). I'll be bringing along a huge library of 80's music
for all to enjoy (Totally Awesome 80's). I would love to join you guys. I'm coming in from Reno and I should arrive late Monday or 1st thing
Tuesday morning. I'm self sufficient and I look forward to a great time in BRC. It sounds like this group/camp will be a blast. Do you have an
idea where your location may be? I hope to meet you all soon. I'll check in later. Thanks!

I'm coming in a box truck with plenty of space if Therapist still needs anything hauled in. That also goes for anyone else that is in need! If anyone wants to throw down on a community monkey hut I can help and transport it in.

mudpuppy had suggested about a week ago that we decide on a rough meeting spot beforehand, and I think this is an idea worth revisiting. Our ride is heading to their camp at around 8 & D and we can likely keep our gear with them while we hop on our trusty bikes and scout the city for y'all, if we know where to look. I know how crazy it will be to find anyone during Sunday night entry madness, but a little bit of effort might pay off. Any suggestions?

Airbender, the 8:00 - 9:00 sector sounds great to me :D As far as dimensions, I am just as bad at visualizing in meters as I am in feet, so it's hard to tell if 30m x 30m will be enough. I think myself and perhaps others would benefit from a visual aid...
With that said, here is an open draw doc where we can create a cartoon camp with fuzzy dimensions. I have added a few items but it is not by any means complete. Better than nothing for my head! Please feel free to edit or add as you see fit.

I think that 8:30 and H should be the starting point. Somewhere in that block. I'm not sure how practical it is to plan on a spot there but I know there will not a lot of space on G.

I am coming in late, probably on Thrusday. I am driving a rented car, bringing a
bike
tent (2 person)
lot of food, water and drinks
2 chairs
1 floor mat
basic first aid
Probably a keg.
Also, I am going to experiment building a evaporator this week, if successful we will have a shower!!

since I am coming mid week I can bring refills for the camp, If you can somehow manage to communicate from Playa or tell me before hand what to get I will get it. This is my first year and I am confused what kind of food to get, Can anyone suggest what is best ?
Can you please please hold a place for one car :)

Therapist, Water for you is already on my list.
Still have no clue how to find you all !!
I can be reached at +1-979-739-2997 or vishramurankar@gmail.com

Dusty hugs!!

Vishram, they are calling themselves Hotel Rug Camp and will be posting their location on a signpost at the intersection of 7:00 and C. If they're rock stars, they will also post it at Playa Info at Center Camp. Hopefully they can save you a little space, but it may be difficult to hold it til Thursday. Send a PM to Drmilamores.

I can't wait to hear about Hotel Rug's adventures after the Burn. I hope everything goes wonderfully for you guys.

The larger you are, the further out you will have to go (especially since not everyone will arrive when Gates open) . . . but you'll probably have an amazing time.

Maybe a long shot but figured i would ask: My girlfriend and I are in the midst of traveling from NY (currently in Ohio!) and trying to figure out a bike situation. Our truck is completely packed and i'm wondering if anyone is planning/can bring an extra bike or two? Let me know if we can work something out!
