Shady Acres Old Folks HomeArgonathHyacintheNishnabedjchanning@aol.comShady Acres Old Folks home is a place for folks to sit down and rest while they explore the area of Arganoth. This area is a bit of a walk from the rest of the burn and old folks like us might need some rest and some hydration before the journey back. We will also provide air conditioning for anyone who might become overheated as we plan to bring a 28 foot camper with actual air conditioning as part of our camp. We know it has to be placed in Arganoth and are OK with that placement (actually prefer it).K-Vegas Yall!No

YOU ARE BEAUTIFULAvalonMother Superior (Holly)Jody (Mythago)Mysteria By Jody Scheisser

The glow is like fire but soft

Teeth sharp
Yet holding itself still

And a beauty so fierce
It shivers along my skin
As a billion tiny tongues of flame.

Tea Time TravelersEdenFirebirdazita.saed@gmail.comIt was the year 2098. We were taking our afternoon tea when we heard the unmistakable sound of an alien spacecraft crashing into the patio furniture. We rushed out to investigate, still clutching teacups. The scene was absolutely disgusting -- think blood, guts, and pulsating alien brains. Amongst the destruction lay a small, blood-slicked box, what we later discovered was in fact a time travel device. For 450 years now, we’ve roamed the landscape of spacetime, collecting treasures, stories, and freaky people. Here we are, Mysteria, 2016, still sipping tea and studying the anthropology of this strange era. Come over or spot us traveling throughout Mysteria to have some tea and contribute stories, photos, and artifacts to the time capsule!South Eastno

Serve our signature magical vegan mushroom broth (no drugs, just soup), each night after the burns (and other nights if we feel like it).

PalmetticaNutopiaBisonlosingtexture@gmail.comIn the past we were representing South Carolina's lack of a burn but it looks like we have one now so we are evolving. We've done grilled cheese at midnight before and may do so again. We've already expanded our Palmettica family to include burners from all over the south east.

Shane CampNutopiaShaneAaronshanesentelle@gmail.comDearest Shanes,
My InShane brethren,
Purveyors of Shaneanigans,
Forever and always Ashaned:

My friends, it is an election year, and we of Shane Camp have a campaign to run. The Campaign Shanepagne shall flow mightily through the busy streets of Mysteria, and we will drink with pleasure as we proudly and incessantly shout our slurry name.

We shall impose on all our unbidden agenda and tickle your sense of entitlement with magnificent whiskers. We will make promises never kept and mercilessly belittle each reeking hippie who dares oppose. And then we will drink more Shanepagne.

Great change is probably not coming in the summer of 2016.

Refresh RejectsNutopiaHoppyLindyrustyatv@gmail.comWandering refugees from war-torn wastelands known as ‘404-Error’ and ‘Please-refresh-page-istan’ have traversed the Brown Paper Tickets straits and braved the nefarious Board-er of Directors Guards in order to reach what has become, to many seekers of asylum, a near-mythical promised land known as Mysteria. Banding together in wandering packs for mutual survival, they have sought comfort and safety in the post-apocalyptic wilds of the ticketless, stateless, lawless lands outside the walls. Anti-ticketless protests have sprung up, bigoted citizens have called for harsher controls and candidate for the Transformus board of directors even proposed the following: “We’re gonna build a wall around Mysteria...and Alchemy’s gonna pay for it!”

Despite the dangers, the terror, the setbacks, this group of ragged refugees, known simply as the Refresh Rejects, have endured the error messages, the “sold out” notices, the cries of “we don’t want your kind here!” that erode their dignity and leave their souls crushed on the side of the Road to Mysteria. They have triumphantly infiltrated the promised land, seeking only to build a new life, free of drone strikes and terrorist attacks and despair.

In celebration of the end of their journey, the Refresh Rejects invite the citizens of Mysteria to partake in a contest representing the trials they endured in their jounies. Participants will don traditional garb, compete for libations, and join in song and dance!

Mediocre CampNutopiaJamieeeeeLmediocrecamp@gmail.comMediocre camp is the "meh" place to hang out. Most of the people are OK. We can't really complain about mediocre camp...but we can't really recommend it either. You can just chill and do whatever, it's up to you. We're mediocre, so "Have an average day" is our motto. Show up if you want to have an ordinary time with some pretty Mediocre Mimosas and satisfactory compliments under our LED clouds. Or don't. Whatevs.

But if you are interested in the ordinary, come to our Morning Mediocre Mimosa Almost Satisfactory Breakfast Friday morning at 10 am. Think Holiday Inn Express: It's substance that's something. It's not the best breakfast but it's alright. Meh.

Barely There Hammock HideawayNutopiaComettreece@gmail.comOur Zen Lilly pad will provide the ultimate in liberation, libation and forced relaxation to the masses. Our tribe includes actual certified massage therapists as well as some extras that are eager to get their hands on you!

When you aren’t getting the rub down you can literally hang with us in our custom Hammock Hideaway. Our boy Comet will be swinging and explaining the secrets of the universe (hint hint… it’s eleven herbs and spices)

Nudity is fun! And since we are already all naked and relaxed and smelling great from the aromatherapy why not participate in one of our Adam and Eve parades? We will be roaming about the valley meeting new people encouraging them to join us and maybe dancing till dawn all in the buff!

ArcanaParadise PlateauLisaMister E Arcana is a group of adventurous foodies predominantly from the Triangle area of North Carolina. We believe that sharing a meal is a simple, yet sacred occasion, a universal act that is important to building both relationships and community. Intentionally eating together creates both time and space to engage in spiritual and intellectual pursuits that are unique to the human experience. Additionally, the simple act of sharing food has implications beyond the meal itself, cultivating lasting community. With that in mind, we seek to transform preconceived notions of fine dining. Gone are the images of quiet decorum and pretension. Arcana ushers in the era of quality exotic foods with an atmosphere dedicated to community growth. À votre santé!CackalackyIgnite!

Jedi Training CampShangri-LaAmos (like one remaining burner might call me Roadkill)Adam Absurdistpsytransformus@gmail.comJedi Training Camp is no ordinary theme camp. It's actually (when we do it right) a portal to another realm. It is a collective experience, a group art project, a party, a trance dance ritual. Deep within the forest of Shangri-La we build our dance floor and art gallery, set up our speakers and altar, and over the course of a few days and nights we teleport the whole glade into a timeless place of epic wonder. Join us for high-energy neuro-activating psychedelic trance music at night, and mind-expanding mid-tempo vibes during the daytime... Come dance, get in touch with the earth, lose your mind, find yourself. It's what we're here for.AshevilleFacebook: Psytransformus (msg to join)
