You guys. We're almost there. It's so close, I can taste the dust. Are you ready? Are you sure you're ready? Are you for really real for sure you're ready? Just in case you're not, here are some last minute reminders:
Read the Survival Guide!
Yes, all of it. It contains information VITAL to your SURVIVAL. Your first stop after Gate is Greeters. And while you will certainly be greeted, don't be fooled by their smiles and cheerful demeanor. They are there to QUIZ YOU and ensure that you are, in fact, prepared to SURVIVE! http://www.ntxb.org/survival-guide.html
MASKS are REQUIRED at GATE!
While masks are not required at the event as a whole, each camp is allowed to make their own mask policy. Gate is a tight space with lots of people crammed in waiting to get into the event. With this in mind, Gate has decided to require masks. Various camps may do so as well, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to tuck a few more into your bag, bra, or waist band.
TICKET TRANSFERS are CLOSED!
There are no ticket transfers at Gate. If you don't have a ticket by now, then you don't have a ticket.
ALL REGISTRATIONS are now CLOSED!
Can you still register your theme camp? No. Can you still register your RV? No. Can you still register your event? No.
DO NOT SHOW UP OUTSIDE OF GATE HOURS!
Gate hours are as follows:
Wednesday (Early Entry ONLY): 9a-9p
Thursday (Early Entry ONLY): 9a-12p
Sunday (Exodus): 9a-6p
DO NOT SHOW UP BEFORE GATE OPENS. DO NOT SHOW UP AFTER GATE CLOSES. YOU WILL NOT BE LET IN.
Volunteer! Volunteer! Volunteer!
Online volunteer registration is closed but you can still register at Volunteer Headquarters on site!
IMPORTANT REMINDER: You MUST come to VHQ to check in for your shift bu signing into our shift log book. This is very important as this is our way of tracking you showed for your shifts so you can get credit towards your VIP tickets for next year. When VHQ closes at night you can check into the log book at Ranger HQ which is the tent directly next to VHQ.
This will be the final blog post pre-burn. If you need any information you can't find in this or previous blog posts, check the survival guide or the rest of the website. See you on the Piney Playa!

All 34 registered RVs were placed but we know more RVs will show up to the event that have not registered.
Crossroads is full and there is no open camping there. Previous to 2019 and our bloom in RV numbers, there had been open RV camping at Crossroads and many RV owners still expect that to be the case.
We do not prevent RVs from being in Open Camping (as long as it's not on the Lower Field, because no wheels on the Lower Field). The open camping that RVs can camp in is wooded and space to park was dubious before the pandemic. The land has retaken much in our absence.
Dagobah open camping is not ideal for RV or car camping as the back portion is sandy loam and turns into quicksand with the combination of rain and traffic. We have hundreds of participants on land and it always rains at least once.
For all cars or RVs in Dagobah I'd recommend parking on traction boards. Honestly, I'd recommend it for any vehicles larger than a gator that will stay parked on land. Overflow RVs will be placed in parking. It's not a punishment, it's a restriction of the land.
City Planning Lead
P.S. What's an RV? RV, or recreational vehicle, is a motor vehicle or trailer that will be used for living, sleeping, or entertaining purposes while on land. RVs include motorhomes, campervans, caravans (also known as travel trailers and camper trailers), fifth-wheel trailers, teardrop trailers, popup campers, toy haulers, truck campers, tiny homes, and converted box and flatbed trailers. In short, if it's not a car, truck, gator, or art car, we classify it as an RV.

A Bit About the Graphics of this Year's Map:
This year, I struggled with how to represent our theme, Coming Home. For many of us it’s been far too long since we've been Home, and what makes Myschievia home to us is uniquely held within each of you. So I picked a memory that pulls at my heart strings and hopes to encapsulate what Coming Home to Myschievia means for me.
Years ago, as Effigy Lead, I walked down to the lower field as the sun was setting. I climbed up to the top of the Tea Cup, laid down and gazed up at the sky. As dusk set in, the bats came out. Dipping and swooping, catching their breakfast. You won't see them at the event. The pounding music and revelry keeps them away. But in the quiet twilight of a Work Weekend they're there.
I had forgotten until then that our logo and Batcave are inspired by the bats that inhabit the Piney Playa. In that quiet, expansive night I felt exquisitely present in a way I never would have in the bustle of the event. Even with its sandy loam and problematic trees, I couldn’t imagine Myschievia happening on any other land. This is Home.
So, welcome Home.
Did you know Myschievia is staffed entirely by volunteers? Volunteering gets us out there, interacting with participants, learning the land, and letting Myschievia get to know you. It's how we give back to our community and make this event happen!
