this is for Burners. i had another one of those dreams...
SOAK is a multi-day camping event on 110 acres of meadows, a swimming hole, and wooded trails located just an hour south of Portland. This is a place to meet your fellow Portland Burners and get a taste of Burningman Northwest style. We'll have Fire Performances, Art, a central covered space, DJ's, live music, Theme Camps, Workshops and the burning of the man on Saturday. We are completely kid, dog and family friendly.
"This year's art theme is about patriotism -- not that kind which freights the nation state with the collective weight of ego, but a patriotism that is based upon a love of country and culture. Leave ideology at home; forget the blue states and the red; let parties, factions and the so-called issues that divide us fall away. Flag burning or flag worship play no part in this year's theme. Ask yourself, instead, a more immediate question. What has America achieved that you admire or feel proud of? What has it done or failed to do that makes you feel dismayed? Put blame aside, in this election year, and dare to ask an even greater question: What can postmodern America, this stumbling, roused, half-conscious giant, yet give to the world?"
