I survived Kiwiburn and I'm pretty sure it was the best one yet.

Harm reduction went swimmingly and I know for a fact that we changed the intention of at least one person by revealing to them what was actually in their sample.

Cleanup went amazingly well, especially given that two of our team flaked on us. Happy and I put in a 5 hour day, a 14 hour day, and an 11 hour one, and finished the moop sweeps in record time. Now I'm entering all the data (we photographed rubbish!) and contacting all the artists and theme camps about their report, before making the moop map.

Note to self: learn how to make interactive maps. Anyone know a good tool for this? I just want to shade an area, then have it clickable so a click will bring up a list of moop found, comments, and a photo.

Don't have any good map tools.
Glad it went well!

As a non-burner, I'm intrigued by moop...

Is this Movable Object Out of Place? i.e. an obscure name for rubbish?

Good that you had a good time with no major hiccups/incidents.

Re: moop?

That was a pretty close guess - Matter Out Of Place. It's a term coined by the BM restoration crew years ago that just kind of stuck. It's good because it covers not just rubbish but also things like rocks that have been moved and need to be put back, cut tree branches, biodegradable waste and the like.
