Euro-Burners and others: Wanna share an RV?

Postby happyreturns » Tue Nov 27, 2012 4:20 am

Right now, CruiseAmerica still has availability in Las Vegas for a 30ft RV. I'm sure that other starting points would work as well (SF has "limited availability" though). I will be flying in for my third burn from Germany and could do LA, Sacramento, Portland, etc. just as well as LV. I'm looking to stay at Barbie Death Camp again but that's also negotiable if you're already set with a great alternative. Looking to share with people who like to share and who party but won't torch the RV or do anything else majorly stupid. Gender, age, etc. flexible (myself 45 y/o German, male, married, straight, relaxed) Happy to cook, looking to have A/C on, drive in Monday drive out right after Temple burns. I might be bringing at least one friend from Germany and will therefore be looking for 2-3 people to share with...So, talk to me. :D

Read the Burning Man RV horror stories before you commit too deeply. Vet your riders!
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.

Good Morning Gyre,
My son-in law is from Austria and gave it up to become an American. So moved me that I am now working with adult language learners.

Good Morning.
That is impressive, since he could have kept dual citizenship.

Teaching people is a very helpful thing for you to to be doing.
A friend of mine constantly finds some common idiom or slang I've used and makes me spell it and translate it.
His english is good, so I am surprizeed how often it happens.
He always writes this stuff down.

No he does have dual but the swearing in to become a citizen requires one to forego past affiliations of country and be American.literally
I thought it was severe.
I was a bilingual teacher of children until one of my favorite students from Yemen (who spoke no english when we began) told me 9/11 had to happen because "those people didnt believe in Allah" and I decided culture was more significant than what knowledge I was teaching. Till now, trying again with adults.

English gives a better chance of understanding between cultures anyway.
There's enough cultural misunderstanding within our own, as it is.

I still remember 30 years ago, an Afgani shop owner in Los Angeles had been robbed of some trinkets from the store counter. She told me that if her own son stole something she would put him to death. NOW I get it. (I don't agree. But I get it).

Ansgar. You still looking for a share ?
Barbie Death Camp you say ? sounds like the cute side of the Apocalypse?!..
Listen if you need someone, I am in . . male/40/straight/single/artist/performer coming from London.
Sell Death Camp to me & sock me with the figures, lets see what we can come up with.
I can promise peaceful vibes and a creative ambition, and can bring loads of AudioVisual treats to help color our majestic RV journey
Peace JAYGO

Um, just so you know, typically, you have to sell yourself to camps.

True. :)

Introducing yourself to a camp is like writing a cover letter, only slightly less stiff and horrific.

(If you can't bring yourself to do it, you're a prime candidate for solo camping, like a badass.)

Cryptic words from the fishist -Thanks for the heads up man, perhaps i should of explained myself better, what I meant was 'what the hells it like?' until 1hour ago I didnt have a clue.. after looking at 1000s of Barbie death camp pictures online I can only imagine!?!
Actions speak louder than words my friends and I have 6 months for all of that, this forum seems full of interesting people and a good place to find my path.. ;)
and by the way I make a terrible badass.. Thanks for the return Andi-licious, keep me in the loop.
Savannah - props to you.

Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro is well-known here. :) Yes . . . they do indeed have a Death Camp fulla Barbies. :shock: And lots of nice people, and wine. Dr. Pyro is the head of camp.

They host the ePlaya Meet & Greet Wednesday of the Burn at 6pm.

I remember hearing ramblings of possibly changing the day from Thursday to Wednesday due to CORE burns, but is it official now?

I'd say anything sent to Doc would want to be very stiff, and horrible.............after all, that what he serves in the back of his RV......they say............

UPDATE:

RV rental costs that week in California are insane! We haven't given up launching from the Bay Area but at this point it looks more likely that we'll be driving in from and returning to Las Vegas. Meet in LV late Aug 23rd or at least by the p.m. on Saturday, Aug 24th. Mad shopping rush incl. bikes, etc. Departure Sunday to arrive at BRC after the mad midnite land-grab rush has died down a bit. Camp with Barbie Death Camp (like it or love it, your choice). Return to LV sometime after the Temple Burn, spiff up the RV in LV, return it on Tuesday, Sept 3rd a.m. and then back to the real world...

The RV is rated for eight but we'll allow a max. of five. Two slots (or three, if one is a couple looking to share a double bed) left. PM me.
