FOUND: 3 English Virgins wish to join our camp

Postby Urban » Thu May 23, 2013 11:44 am

I am helping 3 English Virgins fill their wish to join our camp. We are excited to bring them as I am sure they will hit the Playa running. 7 days of wide-eyed joy followed by a year translating their collective experiences into their creative world. Please help me bring them to the playa! We have had the no feathers, no darkwads, leave no trace meeting! Thank you!

Whatever happened to "radical self-reliance"?

Help teach them some radical self reliance and encourage them to join the site and post their own ticket plea instead of getting you to do it for them.

a: Question was I need 3 passes to the Playa. Sometimes I lose myself when I write.

b: This is just another avenue I am pursuing with and not for them. It is my way of gifting my time which after my stroke and downtime,
I have plenty of. They will certainly take over for the follow through. I am a merely a conduit with keyboard time. It is just something I do for the Tribe of the Blue Bus...

You are a good friend!

There are many UK burners groups - get in touch through the FB page etc.

Make sure your friends are in STEP and are you all registered for Jack Rabbit speaks.

Good luck - and don't be discouraged by the snappyness at times. So many people have so little clue and there's only a finite amount of patience in the world!

http://www.qccb.org/pages/camp-quixotes is mostly from the UK, with some sprinkling of the rest of the EU.

I would suggest you have a serious discussion with your English Virgins about undercover police, and not incriminating themselves. I can't tell you the number of times a British person has asked me or somebody I was out with on the playa for drugs. (And of course we all said no because we are clean teens and would never do anything illegal, ever, really...)

Thank you for your responses.
I, in fact, did enjoy a fruited alcoholic beverage last evening while visiting.
It did not help my spelling or desire for tickets.

I have all three registered with STEP, but I have also sent out the word with other camps I know. I think now, we wait, sitting patiently in the Playa dust. And wait.

I did have a funny thing that happened last night, when I asked my middle son "Why doesn't he join us on the Playa". He responded that he did not want to be alone. I must have failed in teaching him the ten principles. I am surprised because he is much cooler than I am and recycles more.

I will continue to watch this post. 98 and counting...

Burningman is a geeky kind of cool, except for the beautiful people--whom I'm completely unqualified to talk about. And I don't think recycling is a good determinate of burniness...

Thank you all for writing and PM and your gifting. Since I am unemployed, time is my gift for anyone I can help.
We have taken care of our 3 Virgins. I mispoke when I said 3 Englsih Virgins..I mean they all sounded funny but it is really 2 English and a Toronton that lives in London. So sue me. I thought they were all British.

Please find your way to Camp EgoTrip and ask any Superkid where Papa Urban and the Evil Bunny are. We are making up batches of coffee (my hot playa coffee), tea (my hot playa tea), cookies and I am sure early we will have wonderful sticky buns.

We love to visit and I will guarantee a hug if you are not in the mood for coffee or tea!

Thank you all again! This was wonderful!!! :coffee: :coffee: :coffee:

Oh yeah it's all about you... I was talking to Incident :x *

Good luck with this but get them rolling there WILL be a surplus of tickets down the track!

*I am English too - we have a strange sens of humour on the whole and too many Us; enjoy
