Hello fuzzies! I’m already clear to attend CFT in 2014, so you can bet your buttholes I’m gonna be there! The location for theme camp is the same one I use each year, and it’s nice and wide open enough for the ideas I have to put into play if enough people care to help!
Mission: Provide a Rain Room with cooling water mist for people to cool off during the day, and convert the room into a hookah lounge at night!
A rain room is a tent that can be found at many festivals in hotter regions that use the simple science of evaporative cooling to create a nice, cold environment for people to people to get out of the heat during the day. The design (Which I’ll need to knock up on sketchup) would be to create a monkey hut with two closed ends that can be rolled up at night. On the inside, we’d hang up a low pressure cooling mist setup like this one we can hook a garden hose up to and run it to one of the camp’s spigots with a splitter at the end. At night we roll up the front and sidewalls. lay out a tarp, some dog beds and break out the hookahs!
Consider this a preliminary check to see who would be interested in helping with this and camping with me here. Including space for the monkey-hut itself, a space for me to cook (I’ll be handling vegetarian meals) there should be room for about 3 other monkey huts to fit in the space! Bonus points for indigenous-looking structures!
So… who wants to camp with me, and help plan and run Camptire Fails?
