Now that I’m back from the Pagan Bunny Burn, I’m looking at unSCruz on the horizon.
It’ll be here before I know it.
AND I’m volunteering.
I’m also helping to organize a theme camp which offers spankings and fresh baked cookies to consenting adult participants.
unSCruz is bigger than PBB, by about 4 fold.
My guess is there will be between 1,200 and 1,500 people there.
It’s so much fun.
But I’m getting a crash course in camp layouts.
Rule #1: There will NEVER be enough space to accommodate all your campers.
Rule #2: Even after you’ve squeezed and pushed tents into a layout and FINALLY gotten something workable, someone else will join the group and you will have to start ALL OVER AGAIN.
Rule #3: Despite all your best efforts, you have a SNEAKING suspicion that no one is going to follow the camp layout and it will be TOTAL CHAOS on site.
The magic is that somehow, despite things breaking down, not having enough room for everyone, and having to buy a walled canopy from Amazon at the last minute (and to the tune of nearly $300), things tend to work out and everyone is happy.
Me personally, I don’t plan to stake my tent down until the last camper arrives and sets up.
That’s a whole 56 square feet of wiggle room, baby!
In the end, camping is about the company you keep and the memories you make.
We’re a close camp.
And you know me – the cozier I can get with my friends, the better!
