Wharf Rats?

Postby bluesbob » Mon May 24, 2010 10:44 am

This will be my 1st BM. Known about it for years, just couldn't get away. As an old sober Deadhead, I was wondering if any Wharf Rats attend BM. Will I see any yellow balloons flying around and know I have some friends?

There were a few grateful dead camps and at least one sober camp at last years burn that I can remember off the top my head.

There were many AA meetings as well.

You might have to pioneer your own "Camp Wharf Rat".

Grateful Dead and lemonade..... I would stop by for sure.

not sure about any wharf rats. Don't worry you'll forget all about looking for any yellow baloons.

I'm a "young" deadhead myself, just old enough to catch the end.

BB,

You'll see all colors of balloons. And you'll have some friends.
I went searching for gdead camps last year and found a few. No Wharf Rats tho.
You might want to check out "Anonymous Village"..

Hi Bluesbob. If you want to attend 12-step meetings at Burning Man be sure to check out Anonymous Village. They have meetings there every 3 hours. There is also Camp Stella a queer and queer friendly camp that has an AA meeting every day at 3:00 in the afternoon.

It's been awhile since that post. Thanks for the information. If anyone else is interested in a sober camp, I've found four so far:

Anonymous Village
Camp Stella
Hokey Pokey Camp
Vamp Camp

There is another camp, can't remember the name, that is also sober. They are just sober people, not affiliated with any program.

Talk to these camps if you're interested in joining them, or watch the Guide to find out when meetings are if the 12 Steps is your thing. (Last I saw there were about 15 meetings per day)
