Well, we are getting down to the nitty gritty. I looks like we will have about 35 people at LJ Camp this year. More than twice that of last year, WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP!
I just purchased a trailer today so that Mark and I can easily haul the 16 x 32 tent and supplies. It is almost here (BOUNCE, BOUNCE, BOUNCE)
I just got a weather reports. Temperatures are in the low 100's which is a good thing. Last year was hotter than hot. There is the possibility of rain so really, leave those shoes you treasure at home. Playa platforms in the morning are something else to behold. You go to use the loo and you are 5 inches taller by the time you get back to camp.
So, for those first timers...START DRINKING MORE WATER THAN YOU NEED NOW! Take a couple of weeks to let your body get used to processing large quantities of that vital liquid. Also, now is the time to take care of your feet. Don't go to Burning Man with cracked heels...that will just make a bad situation worse for you. I have been vigilent about taking care of my feet for about 3 months now because I wear birkenstocks all summer and my poor feet get dried out easily. So really, socks and cream at night (a good habit to do on the playa as well).
Just to give you an idea of stuff that I bring - here is a list. If you have anything to add that makes your stay at our playa home comfy, feel free to add to my list....( Collapse )
