If others have made comments about Camp Herring I haven't seen them but I wanted to take a minute and say that was one of the coolest things I've seen on the playa. The level of detail was phenomenal.
At least next year the playa gets another Norwegian contingent in person instead of by proxy..... Now the only question I have...will we see the cold oven mitt war get hot again? The Kernul's art work gets better with any kind of combat going on. One can only hope Apokiliptika finds a new enemy to fight and dominate for 2008.
Kinetic V ~~~~~~ When you finally let go, only then will you learn how to live. I bring order to chaos. And I bring chaos to those who deserve it.
Camp Herring Announces Test of Scale-Plate Armuor Dateline: HAMMARFEST (Apokiliptik news bureau)
Notorious evil scientist El-wire of the Herring Kontingent of Terminal City Allied Kamps has announced beginning stages of development of new form of armor based on proven herring protective measures.
"The superior natural protection of the scales of the Herring, combined with a secret polymer-based chemical "treatment" developed at our mountaintop glacier labs, has developed what is believed to be an armor totally impervious to ravages of enemy attack while allowing in desirable elements, such as Playa Dust and Vodka" Mr. -Wire was reputed to say at a press codference this morning.

A select group of intercamp representatives were allowed to witness the test of this new and foreboding technology at the Herring Secret Laboratory in the hills above Hammarfest this afternoon. "This is a new day for the hope of HerringKind," claimed LiveWire, Spokesfish for the Camp. "With this, we will be protected from the ravages of Southern Hemispherical January Sun-dwellers, Naked Women, and weak American beer, while still being able to bask in the glory of a well deserved playa-dusting."

Results of the test, which have not been officially disclosed by Herring Sources, are pending, however a source, calling himself only by the code name "Telegraph Wire" said the results were "absolutely smashing".
The government of Norway, in salute to these brave and selfless individuals, have renamed the town "Anvilfest" in honor of these tests.
Isn't there more? We need 17 unicycles, 3 nude women (don't forget the helmets), 1 large rodder, 2 rockkkket engines, abt. 180 gal. marshmellows, one automatic transmission and some pepper - among other things..
