The Blurb of Bob, Volume 5, Number 8

October 12, 2022

Less than three weeks but who’s counting?

Volume 5, Number 7
October 19, 2022

We love this time of year, when the regional burn we know and love is on the horizon. It’s the same way we felt about summer camp when we were kids, when we got the chance to be away from home in nature with a bunch of our friends.

Camp La Llanada is a special place that invokes that nostalgia, or that allows you to experience it for yourself if that wasn’t a part of your childhood. In any case, your MO at AfterBurn 2022 is to have fun and rediscover what play means to you as a grown-up. With Martians. At a disco.

COVID-19 Policy

Our COVID-19 policy has been updated on our website here — scroll down on the landing page and you will see it. Kindly review it before attending AfterBurn 2022. Email me at  if you have any questions.


We are going paperless with waivers this year. This means they are electronic and available for you to review and sign prior to arriving at gate. In fact, we really, really want you to get this taken care of prior to getting here.
