Time to 2016 Gates Open:
The G-spotless camp’s origins emanate from Socrates’ (previously Balls) solo trip to Burning Man in 2010. Locating the camp at G & 2:30 (The G-Spot), Socrates befriended Burners Jade, Kokopelli & Masseuse (aka: Mandingo). In 2011 Socrates brought to Burning Man a virgin Fly Boy while also befriending Jade’s wife Roxy.
2012 added another virgin Nuke (later changed nickname to Callahan) as well. At camp we met Jade’s dad Shutter, and Lanny. In 2012, the g-spotless camp was not able to return to G & 2:30 as it had the previous two years because the old campsite was taken, so it moved to I & 2:30 and changed its name to G-Spotless.
2013 introduced two virgins, The Wiz and Marmite, and saw G-Spotless move to G & 6:30, with a flood of new characters participating in the camp — some for 5 minutes, others for 5 days.
Meet the people of G-Spotless…
Dang it took me a long time to post for 2015 — 6 months?!? Lots to digest. Best burn ever. Here are a few photos:
If you were given a bronze G-Spotless medallion, consider yourself one of the select few. The four primary members of our camp, Socrates, Calahan, Kokopele, and Big White Tuna Can, produced about 300 of these, each giving out about 60.
Present this medallion at the G-Spotless camp at any future Burns and receive a friendly smile, a willing ear, something to drink and a shady spot. You are now family.

It was a pleasure meeting you all — email us photos and stories please!
With the wrapping-up of Burning Man 2014, I’ve arrived home, showered twice and reflected on the glory that is 2-ply bathroom tissue. So many amazing experiences, so many new people, and a nickname change to boot. Dead is “Balls”… long live “Socrates.”
More to follow….
Caravansary is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking how we’re going to make this year even more amazing than last. I’m sure it won’t be a difficult task — each year gets better and better.
Here is the design for the 2014 bronze medallion
