Polycamperous (n): To be associated with more than one camp
Over the years we have Tribe members who have formed camps of their own. However the Tribe is like Hotel California, so they can never really leave. We also include on this page our dear friends who have left for the big burn in the sky.
Here are some of our polycamperous campmates:
Swedish digital sculptor
Photographer and “Artsie f#$%” (per JimB)

Gonzo Gumero is a black hole of a party. Bearded and dressed in overrall sucked flies and other wanna bees unconsciously to Gonzos nightly seances. Gonzo loves Gumero forms. Organic forms. Gonzo would like to bring to life city square and organized industrial structures. Gonzo opens up doors to the rooms and scenes. In a dark cave, beaver (entrance in water), place Gonzo out thumbnails of people who meet and are living in organically formed house. These hands want to sculpt a world together.
At a first impression I would be your typical blond Swede, however, there is more to that and I will always make others smile with a lot of enthusiasm, curiosity and musical joy.

Gone but not forgotten:
We lost a dear friend on July 8th, 2007. SuperDave was out riding his lovingly restored BMW-R90 when he met with a fatal accident. Those of us who know him know that this was the way he would want to have gone. He lived his life to the fullest, never let his health slow him down, and died doing what he loved to do.
In 2006 he came to the burn with a partially collapsed lung 🙂 and we all brought him a variety of masks and filters. Rogue – our other demon rider – was a few months preggers with her son Ryder, so they both had to pay extra care to filter the air they breathed. Dave’s outfit for burn night was both spectacular and practical. Dave opted to stand guard over our camp instead of going out to watch the burn. He was, and remains, a prince among mortals.
I found out about his passing when Dave’s son logged into Dave’s email and sent me a note letting me know all that had transpired. We got chatting and he explained that his only knowledge of Burning Man came from watching the “Malcolm in the Middle” episode when the family went to BM! He shared with me that their entire family was very concerned that their Dad was getting involved with us “drug crazed sex fiends” – and it took some convincing on my part to let them know that some of us don’t do drugs 😉
Here are a few photos of Dave:

Rest in Peace SuperDave

The crusty curmudgeon is off the big burn in the sky. JarJar camped with us one time and shared his bar fridge with us the next year. Due to ill-health he had to miss the burn for a couple of year prior to his passing. RIP.
