Oh hi! You've found Dustmight, a scrappy little Burning Man camp.

Established in 2017, we're not yet a placed theme camp but enjoying a mid-ground as part of the Alternative Energy Zone Village. We've been 7, then 4, then 10 campers, and I'm happy to say we've had a variety of ages and experience levels from virgin burners through to 8th-timers. We have basic infrastructure with 1200ft² of shade and a variable and evolving solar setup; no showers, evap, or plans for either (and definitely no generators!). We run a very lean ship and raise just enough to cover infrastructure improvements and a group donation to the AEZ.

Because you can't live on dusty hot dogs alone. (Or can you?)

Back in '07, my friend Charlie shared her bucket list with me, the first item being Burning Man. I had never heard of anything like it before. While it suited her, I started my own bucket list of things that I would never do. The Burn was the only item on the list.

The detailed version is in our Google Docs, but so you know roughly what goes into making the camp possible...

For our own small contribution as a camp to BRC in 2018 we resolved to adopt some porta-potties. It's dirty work but we all knew the feeling of discovering a special porta.
