Hello Camp
Bored?  Lonely?  Want to meet new and interesting burners?
Want to strip them of their given names and replace them with dirty names?
Hello Camp will be making it's 20th appearance on the playa this year.  There is no
set time or day to give out name badges... just go to the bar and ask the bar staff
for a few sheets of name badges and a quick lesson on how to attack... errr...
approach people, and you're on your way to having some superhappyfuncool
