I'm remaining at Sanctuary to help techant protect her animals

I was concerned about this part if the instructions so I asked Erik - and am waiting for an answer
quote:
Once the duststorm commences, everyone will be stuck at their campsites and prevented from exploring at other campsites. (Just like real Burning Man, by the way. ;) ) I will post here to let you know when the duststorm has begun and ended.

quote:
Can those with campsites leave theirs and come to Sancuary and help secure the animals after their sites are secured?

I asked this at this thread http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=11989&page=3
Erik - replied and said I was right so everyone without a campsite is still welcome to stay but those with campsites will have to go it alone at their own campsites.

Hey, wait a second, I think I have found a way to evade the storms effect!!! I totally forgot that the secured surprise boxes contain items of the list, so even if not secured, i still can have them opening boxes! So I only need to secure the boxes as the items will appear when a box is opened! YAY!

I think that is clever and that Erik will say no, but good try. He wanted you to pick 5 items. I have had others take items of mine while they visit to help with the animals, (I am glad there are so many animal lovers), but that was within the rules. In fact I was thinking (danger swiss family robinson), those that didn't have a camp before but are securing items may have to stay with the items. Erik may consider that a camp now, or it may have to be considered a camp to survive the storm. :blush

Returned from schep with a big Thank You.



I seemed to have lost item "e" was that intentional or an accident? Did anyone else lose something they secured?

Why of course, seeing that you asked so nicely.

Although you will have to come and collect them, as I am rather busy ATM.

Well, I did adapt, I changed the multicamp to a restaurant, and what I really need back urgently is the eating sets (Where do I serve the food if no plates, etc) and the refresment bottles. (What will they drink) and the box (I did complete the challenge for something!). The others is more for the surprise boxes, but I don't really need them.

Good point, but we have no reson not give back their stuff.

I might add that my campsite has a new twist to this thanks to the dust-storm.

Oh dear! I'm going to seem very stupid, but I have to ask because I've obviously missed something significant -
what's going on????????????? :w00t :w00t :w00t :w00t :w00t

I have been at a Seminar in Paris since Wednesday; got back at midnight last night so tired I couldn't see straight and now I'm seeing things in the lists here that I don't understand. What have you all been doing?

There was a sandstorm and all your items except for 5 ones you could have secured, got blown away to a different camp. You can remodel your camp or try to trade back for your thing that were blown away.

Hey Rabscuttle! Can I have your matches please? If you look at my inventory, you can see if there is anything you would like.

Hey Everyone! My camp isn't chess galore anymore so you can come again to figure out the surprises of my camp!

RoboBob seems too preoccupied to name his campsite. He is meticulously sorting the red, blue, green, and yellow M&Ms into four bowls on his card table, and dumping the leftovers into a fifth bowl. Below the fifth is a small post-it note simply reading, "Eat." The milk crate sits below the table, with a note saying:

Deposits
Warning, deposits will not be returned

On his lawn chair sits his loaded Super Soaker, and the bathtub next to that. People have casually named his campsite based on the sign taped to the front of his table: "Remain Silent."

My suitcase contains:

**1 bathtub full of water**
**1 Super Soaker 50**
**50 1lb. bags of M&M's**
**1 kazoo**
**1 extra pair of socks**

A medium-sized puddle of melted carbonated chocolate ice cream
1 Weight (heavy)
10 Servers, plus internet connection
1000 matches (in box)
1 piece of metal
10 backgammon boards
500 Nails
100,000,000 fire ants
Electric storage device
spray cans of paint in all kind of colours
4 chairs.
100 18-wheelers
5 glasses
20 comfortable chairs
3 pots
10 books of matches
100 $5 bills (fake money, only for camping purposes)

Items Consumed:

4 Whopper Jrs w/ cheese
1 pile of confetti

Thanks Erik I was really concerned about keeping the birds in cages too much longer and my next best option of a tent from someone was look sadly inadequate.

And elfstone I am head over right now to give you your censer thing....
