M*A*S*H 4207th
The least disciplined but most hospitable military unit in Black Rock City, M*A*S*H 4207th has been on the playa since 1999, and a registered theme camp since 2000. Feeling unwell? The doctors & nurses of our unit will prescribe inebriation therapy till you can't walk, then throw you on the stretcher & haul you from post-op to your home camp or where we decide to dump you. Our well-trained alchoholics will gladly eliminate any surplus liquor you may have. Who else on the playa will hand out military spec toilet paper rations at 3 AM when the JoTS have run out? If we like you, you may get invited to the 38th Parallel Medical Society poker game. If we don't like you, that won't stop us from giving you shelter from the heat & dust. While the USO seems to be avoiding us, that has never stopped music & comedy from occuring at random in the mess hall. Travel with caution near our camp at night; The CO & others are avid playa fishermen. From draglines to driftnets to simple fishing in front of camp, no tripper wanting that free glow stick is safe from our master anglers. Carry your BRC issued ID near this camp: random security checkpoints at all hours. Raids & blockades of other camps will occur when least expected.

Mohammeds Mini Martini and Erotica
When the sun reaches its zenith and is beating down on the citizens of Black Rock city head over to the coolest Bedouin Palace on the playa and indulge in an ice cold martini while lounging on pillows,poufs,camel saddles and lots of carpets. Lay around Mohammeds and philosophize about life or read from our "Book of 1001 Erotic Tales". This ancient tome is a collection of our guests erotic stories from the last four years and is housed in a 300 year old book that is illustrated with scenes from past years at Mohammeds. The drinks and nibblies are offered with traditional Bedouin hospitality but we do ask, if the spirit moves you,to write a true erotic story that we can include in this history of the sensual life of the denizens of Black Rock City. We Mohammedans tend to shake our martini thing between lunchtime and dinner but come early or late and you may be suprised. This year the "Tribe of Artists" photo studio will be operating next to Mohammeds

Mooncake Rebellion
We'll be serving iced tea (and occasionally other non-alcoholic drinks) most days. While you're enjoying your beverage, you may want to shake that poetry out of your soul and into the sand of our Zen Garden. After that, catch some shade and scope out the neighborhood or snuggle into the pillowry in our little tower nook. We'll also be offering a fire-staff making workshop on Tuesday at 11 (last year we had too many people show, and ran out of materials, so be relatively on time), to be followed by an after-dark fire-show at the camp. The show is welcome to all, but new performers will be given preference. We're also going to sponsor a real-life "Choose your own Adventure", that will be a mix of activities around the playa, in conjunction with other camps. The day and time are TBA, and we'll spread word around early in the week.Hometown: Portland, OR
