Vedges & Gimps Camp:new recruits welcome

Hey burners, or soon-2-B burners!
If all goes as planned and the BORG and Gomonk smile on us, Vedges & Gimps camp will be placed on playa, with maybe 100' X 100' plot and about 4 rows back.
We gots room for maybe 6 or so new motivated members in our light work/maximum fun camp at Green Man'07!
I'm Gargoyle, known to some of you, and a definite gimp since my shattered right leg at BMan'05 on that damn Colossus monstrocity. "Hippy Crippler" I call it. But I got an $11,000 helicopter ride for my troubles, so there's a silver lining there.
Anyway, we'll have other gimpy BMan vets among us, but physical handicaps ain't required. Mental ones qualify, too.
And the 'vedge' thing is a bad pun re: the Green theme.
So if this is you, and you're motivated to have fun, tell bad jokes, laugh alot, and are fully tolerant of all inebriates and dusty comeradery, get back to me.
We'll have 2 deluxe RVs, a reasonable kitchen, maybe 3 golf carts(mainly for gimps, but we can be persuaded), and are populated by very experienced burners who know where the bodies are buried.
Fmr Lost Penguins and Flamingos make up our base.

So write back to Garg at: cryingbunnies@comcast.net and I'll kick your tires...with my good leg.
Burn on.

Hey unjonharley-
I like how you spell handicapped "handy cap". Sounds almost jaunty and playful.

Yes, the morally 'handy cap' go to the front of the line.
Tell us more about yourself, your BMan experience, sex, place of origin, and expectations at Green Man '07.
We're a b.y.o.-camp. While we'll have some cooking 'facilities', you bring all your own food/water/tent/etc.

Look fwd to hearing back from you.

Which was the Colossus?

I presume you guys know about Hot Wheelz?

I pissed of the doc, he wanted to put a pin,3 plates and 12screws in my leg but I said NO way. 5 1/2 months in a cast up to my hip and I still feal it. I drive a snow plow in the winter, didn't want more pain from cold metal
I'll see you there, we can swap war stories

A friend had a hip,femer and other bits of steel.. At the end of the day she would have to sit in a hot bath to warm up enough to go to sleep..

I wish I could join your camp but I am spoken for.

I compound fracture of my right tib (2 years getting better) definitely qualifies me as a gimp so I will come out and say Yellow to you all :twisted:

It’s got to have been done by a number of people, I could imagine irrigation could be a drag but the alkalinity of every thing could be good for the stoma and surrounding skin. I’d guess it would all be a lot easier to deal with in an RV, or trailer.

Good gravy! My father had an illiosotomy bag...um...keep it clean would be a bit of an understatement!! I would advise against changing your bag in a dust storm...
