Cool. I've been waiting for this. I mooped our camp and the surrounding camps after they had left on Monday 4 seperate times. One of our neighbors had a broom that apparently exploded and that took me about an hour to get all the little tiny pieces. I'm sure however, that I didnt get it all despite my best effort.

Looking for green at 4:50 and H.

They might still take Sundays off, and it's probably best if you're there for the morning meeting. Don't take it personally if they don't want dead weight.

Next you're going to tell me people won't get the reference to Bobby coming out of the shower and everything just being a big dream!



Actually, I once said that when I was in my early 20s and the people in the office were exclaiming "What the hell? How do you know stuff like that! I could swear you're like 35 or something!"

Soylent Green references come up on this board with some frequency. Less than "clown problem" but more than Rasputin.

no I wouldn't take it personally at all. They've got their system and weekend warriors might not fit in at all. Just wondering...

Sick thing is I re-watched that last year and found it way more disturbing than when it first came out - I can easily see something like that in the near future.

A sequel or a remake probably considering that trend to recycle (eg Rollerball)

Cleanup crew uses the same Autocad-generated gridded city plan printout that has been overlaid with the placement crews' hand-drawn camp boundaries. Yeah, it's blurry before and after they publish it.

I dunno, I'm pretty sure most people on here (the posters, anyway) are plenty old enough to get the reference... or at least film-savvy enough...

I could be wrong, but that looks suspiciously like the Adobe Illustrator map the placement team puts together. Of course that doc could be coming from an AutoCAD export…

I really like the new detail levels they're using.

I hope they explain their methods in generating the new splotches.

I see them too!
They're mostly in the small red splotches. I bet its "grey water" spots.

Shit, ya know, I didn't even think about the fact that technically the weekender that dumped their grey water on Wednesday then split, were officially on our camps allotted space.

I wonder how the Mid Night Popcorn Palace in the 3 O'clock plaza is gonna do.
The popcorn smelled soooo good!

But was their mooping just as good?

I had popcorn at the 3 o'clock plaza and I was picking up popcorn that *I* dropped quite often! Yikes!

This first day result has my heart lightened. I was worried about excess moop when I left Tuesday because on every trek to the portos had me coming home with handfuls of moop. The burn barrel left right on the playa across from our camp is going to get a BIG ASS red spot, I am sure.
