    We had two photographers shooting video and photos. The better photographer is still editing.

    We ran our solar generator from 8:30 to 4 am. Lazers, five black lights, 15" monitor and four cell phones charging.
    Never ran out of juice, and this was using only 265ah battery bank. I have another 100ah battery coming. I might hook up a 900btu window shaker air conditioner to my jeeps window and set it on a timer so it turns on right as the sun comes up.
    I will for sure have a box fan with a mist system hooked up.

    Things are looking good.

    T-dahhggg! I am so fuckin stoked! I thought I had this campsite shit down but apparantly I have no clue...I can't wait!!the best I have to add is my rubber duckies swim pool and a bubble machine (and floyd, of course) yr crazy and that's why I love you!! Can't wait for april (and joshtree and lib!)
    and the fact that you've got replica written down the side of your guns, and the fact that I've got desert eagle point five o written down the side of mine, should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence...

    Sound was retarded. Never turned it up past half way. The lighting and art panels came out crazy. I can't wait to see the photos and video from the other photographer.

    Thank you. I aim to please.


    We're still constructing the shrine/alter to go around the sound. Since there is no DJ we will be making a shrine art sculpture and leaving offerings for the bass gods there.

    Really nice job. Will this be your first time bringing a setup like this into the campgrounds or is this something you do every year?

    Very nice Goat, one of the guys in our group just informed everybody he is bringing his projector for some visuals too we should have a similar setup although we didn't think to paint everything, nice touch.

    what kind of projector? We were talking about having a projector and showing footage of us painting these panels and mixing it with live footage of peoPle dancing in the tent.

    It's an HD projector he uses as his TV in his house. It projects HD up to 100" it's pretty badass we have Super Bowl parties every year and watch it on that. We were thinking of trying to find a white tarp to use on the inside of our common/dancing area. Otherwise we might have to bring the roll up screen....

    Not BLM. 100' from those rocks is considered Indian land. I don't know about the cameras, they had like ten diff flashes and lenses and shit. I was whacked out Jedi and painting, didn't pay attention. I have two photographer buddies and they are the titties.

    I have a girl in our group that bought week two tickets and needs to trade for week one to get with us. She only has tickets though. No camping. The projector idea sounds good. I'd play horror films and down tempo or glitch. Lemme know if you wanna trade
