CCC Camp 2007 in hindsight

So, CCC Camp 2007 is over, I’m back to work for a few days already, time for a write-up. The entire event had very warm and humid weather. It was mostly dry accept saturday, when the entire field changed into a olympic swimming-pool.
Deckard, Flar and me helped Antarez and Geck0 set-up their tent somewhere deep in the night, after they had to relocate. In the end they got a very nice spot just underneath a large aluminum airplane, giving them some shade.
Most time during the week was spent hanging around the campsite talking to people, having drinks and generally looking for shade/cool areas. The hangars were ideal locations, because they remained quite cool, due to them being covered by a few meters of dirt. We were very glad that we brought along a small cooler to keep our supply of beer, water and coke cold… (It’s now sitting in my computer-room)
There were some interesting projects going on, including building brainmachines, remote-control helicopters, various webcam projects, weather-ballons and light-installations. There was even a project involving light emitting algea, although I think that project didn’t quite turn out the way it was meant to.
Even though in the beginning everything didn’t go exactly as planned, and I heard a lot of complaining I think in the end we all had a lot of fun. Next time we might do it completely different, but I’m sure we’ll all be there again.
(plans for next time include fixxing either a camper, caravan or truck of some sorts, just so we don’t have to bother with tents, and having more space to bring stuff)

    You have hacked!

    Dat waren dus hele mooie GLITTERS! 😉

    Overigens waren dat gewoon een paar Nederlanders die een mooie lasershow wilden geven op water met een rookmachine, maar omdat niemand geloofde dat het ‘zomaar een bak met water’ was hadden ze er voor overdag maar een berg glitters ingemikt met een half-geloofwaardig verhaal. Algen geven geen licht en al zeker niet op de manier waarop de glitters het deden 🙂

  2. Ah… dat is een erg plausibele verklaring idd, want ik had ze die zooi zien opbouwen en wat al niet, maar het algen-verhaal vond ik al wat vergezocht.
