Proposed Club Event -- Burn In the Forest!

Want to get together and camp?  UPDATE!  WetWesties are also invited and this event will be added to their Calendar!

Have you ever heard of or wanted to go to Burning Man? Live in a cashless society, where everyone is welcome and where everyone participates and gives gifts to each other? And builds amazing Art, Experiences and Relationships? Such a place exists, for about a week each year, in the middle of a salt flat called the Playa; the event is called Burning Man! Last year 50,000 people created a city THEIR WAY! And had the TIME OF THEIR LIVES!

http://www.burningman.com/

There is a Regional Event right in our back yard that embraces the same 10 Principles and it is on the way to Whistler, close by and soon: July 11th to14th. It is called Burn In The Forest.

http://burnintheforest.com/

The Happiest Theme Camp, the Oldest Continuous Theme Camp, the Most Fun Theme Camp at Burning Man is The VW Bus Camp (Established in 1998). How would you like to be a Founder of VW Bus Camp at the Burn In The Forest this year? While surviving Burning Man is a challenge, Bus Campers THRIVE! The experience changes lives in a wonderful way and will change how you see the world we live in and how our world will evolve.

Express yourself radically, become who you always wanted to be in a safe place with people who share your interests, take care of each other and live without rules; except, you cannot ruin someone else’s good time! There are no spectators, there are only participants! Learn to Dance With Fire!

Please explore these Burner Links (above) and commit to being a FOUNDER of VW Bus Camp at Burn In The Forest. Please let me know soon, we have until June 10th to claim our spot in the Forest!

Please contact me directly at [masked] to become a VW Bus Camp Founder! Everything else you need to know and the answers to all your questions can be found on these links:

    Hello Happy Campers!

    I am heading to VWBusCamp very early Wednesday Morning to get things set up, laid out. Still no map of Theme Camps but look for the Wolfram Gray Westy and 10 X 10 shade structure near the intersection of the Southern Road and the Main River Road. Ice will be available at the store at the entrance gate all week.

    Meal Plan: Mexican, Steak, Pork and Mediterranean. Beans!

    Will post CB Radio Channel before I leave.

    Any questions?

      Hi Jenny Bee!

      We have a designated site just back from the main drag where the second road in/out intersects the main road up and down the river. So, we are mid way between center camp and the end of the esplanade. Map out soon with VWBusCamp! See you there! When Larry Harvey got tired and wanted rest back in the late 1990's, he stayed with us at VWBusCamp, we are a popular retreat for those with Theme Camp Blues!

    Hey Bruce, this sounds like a great idea! I've been to this before...when it was way up the Squamish Valley at mile 36.

    You'd better get a ticket if you want to come. It sold out last year.

    My crew has a big camp every year called Buffalo Jump

    I think BurningVan might be a different entity than Burn in the Forest

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
