Hammock Hangout 2018 -- WE'RE UPDATING FOR 2018


Please add yourself to the 2018 Attendance list


(This page is totally a work in progress! Feel free to help out, chime in on the mailing list, etc.)


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

There is a Google group for our emails and a wiki (this space) with other crucial info, as well as a Facebook group for freer communication and excitement sharing (we try to keep the emails down to a dull roar).


Get ALL the relevant info! Don't be in the dark, or let your subgroup brethren be either! Use the links below, and poke your friends with a stick if you think they aren't hip.



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 Public Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/hammockhangout/



Lost, confused, need a hug or an explanation? Friend and message Jennifer Erickson on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/genericsun). She can help make sure you're gently enfolded, you know, like a blueberry into muffin mix.




Welcome Home

In 2017, Hammock Hangout was at 4:45 and Fire. We've landed in this neighborhood for years. This will be updated in the summer.






Your support is the SOLE MEANS by which we Spacecats give our 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 guests have ever seen. And NObody does karaoke, or lounging, like we do. It's a labor of love we make happen through communal effort.


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. Friend and contact Jennifer Erickson on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/genericsun or text her at 415-652-7264 (EST despite the West Coast area code). THANKS!

What to Bring (Besides what is in the Survival Guide, here are some things you can bring for the camp.)

HH 2016 Camp Layout



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.
