Hammock Hangout 2018 -- WE'RE UPDATING FOR 2018


FIRST OFF: Please add yourself to the 2018 Attendance list



Greetings, Spacecats! Did you know that this is only one of the THREE places we, the residents of Hammock Hangout, communicate about Burning Man? 

1 - the wiki (this space)

2 - the email list (Google group) 

3 - the Facebook group


Here's how to get hooked in.


Need wiki access (that's this thing where you are now)? Mail hh@thehammockhangout.com


Need on the mailing list? Go join at the SPACECATS Google Group or mail hh@thehammockhangout.com


Need to connect with our broader community? Facebook Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/hammockhangout/





Welcome Home

In 2018, Hammock Hangout will have an approximate location of 4:30 and Elektro.






Our donations are how our camp gives its communal gift: The tallest shade on playa, "69" hammocks (give or take), and the most well-stocked top-shelf liquor bar- with ice, and sometimes even WATER!- many of our visitors have ever seen. And nobody does karaoke, or lounging, like we do. It's a labor of love we make happen through communal effort and donations- materials, storage, fuel, tools need to be financed and secured year-round.


DONATE HERE: http://thehammockhangout.com/#donate


If you can afford it, please donate at least $200 (suggested donation) per camper, as EARLY as you can (purchases get made LONG before we hit dust). Feel free to give more if you can! This money funds the container and its storage, construction supplies, shared camp assets, and stuff like that. (Your "three handles of top-shelf booze and the mixers to match" donation on playa is also greatly appreciated; look for details mid-summer on the email list).


Want to get more involved with making Hammock Hangout come to life? Consider taking on a key leadership position. Your time, love, skills, and attention are a valuable asset on AND off-playa. Pipe up on the mailing list or on the FB page.

Camp Projects and Roles (Still updating for 2018. Project Leads, please add/remove yourselves)


Just a little organization structure can go a long way. Especially for projects that affect the whole camp. Here's a list of camp projects, some critical and some optional, with names of the hardy souls who have volunteered to lead the projects.


If you want to add new projects, or sign up to help or lead existing projects, great! Just add yourself to the list. And if you know where you want to help out, add that, too. Projects that don't have excited participants may not happen at all, so don't be shy! This list will give us a slightly better sense of what to expect.

Ok desperation sets in as my van brakes caught on fire and I am renting a car for 3 weeks and my bike from last year died.

NEED A BIKE BADLY. Anyone have an extra they could bring that I can make my own for a few weeks? In a small rental car now so even if I had a bike, I can't bring one.

Help me Obi Wan Space Cat.
