My suggestion is Tag all cameras. Why have any friction? Download form at link below and bring it with you. Plus if you lose it might find its way back to you with the tag!
From the BM site: Q. What is the policy on taking pictures?
A. Film and video cameras are forbidden without permission. All video cameras must be registered and tagged. This is to protect the privacy of participants and artists alike. Use Agreement forms for personal video cameras will be available upon arrival at the Gate, the Greeter's Station or Playa Info. If you are considering filming or videotaping for professional purposes, you must have a commercial agreement on file with the Media Team prior to your arrival onsite. Commercial use of images taken at Burning Man without permission is subject to cunning legal action and punishable by death. This includes amateurs and professionals who capture images.

Real Estate Planning

Now that we have a grid map of our location within AEZ (camp #49 at http://www.ae-zone.org/Map/finalgrid.gif), I want to do some rudimentary visualization of where everything (vehicles, tents, & structures) goes. You can help me out by looking at the following list and sending me corrections. I'm looking particularly for:
Shea & Susanna, if Rico is joining us, please make sure he gets on the email list.

I'm just going to assume all vehicles take up 10x20 space - doors/hatches/trunks need to open and be accessible, etc. But knowing who's driving together will give me a better vehicle count.
  1. station wagon - Xuxan & Bosco
  2. SUV - Jenny & Hoshi
  3. pickup - Bill & Joe
  4. SUV, small - Shea & Susanna
  5. ??? - Kathleen
  6. ??? - Kineri
  7. coupe - Darcey
A large tent is considered 10x20 and standard is considered 10x10.
  1. large - Xuxan & Bosco
  2. 11x11 - Jenny
  3. standard - Shea & Susanna
  4. standard - Hoshi
  5. standard - Bill
  6. standard - Joe
  7. standard - Kathleen
  8. standard - Kineri
  9. standard - Darcey
  1. sun shade - 20x30
  2. solar panel - 5x5
  3. evaporation pond - 10x20

Black Rock City 2005 Map

The 2005 Black Rock City Map is now available (requires Acrobat Reader). From this high level map, you can get a better idea of where we are - southwest corner of Alternative Energy Zone at 5:00 and Catharsis. (Actually, we're nearer to 5:00 and Ego with porta-potties a quarter of a block away.)

Our old friends, the 7 Sins Lounge, are in the 9:00 plaza. And one of my co-workers is in the Deep End - a block west of them - and they have continuously flowing booze. If you know of other camps to visit, please add a comment.

Exact Camp Location

We have an exact camp location!!! Roger, the Alternate Energy Zone (AEZ) mayor, has placed us in AEZ's village. Look for camp #49 in this map - we're in the lower left hand corner of the village, near the intersection of 5:00 and Ego.

A full gridded out 10'x10' map of the village is here. Expand the image if your browser (IE or Firefox) automatically shrinks large ones to fit your window; otherwise, the grid looks like hell.
