Good ideas. All of this presupposes a qualitative leap in coordination

between WGs and organization and integration of Liberty Park OWSers.

No, living outside in freezing weather is definitely not the same as a

ski trip. One possibility is to establish a scheduled rotation of

"campers," to avoid burn-out and folks becoming sick (not just if they

get sick). Maybe 3 day to 1-week shifts, when it gets really cold.

Perhaps this should be mandatory (although positively motivated),

since some will want to prove their revolutionary mettle by hanging

tough, even when they're coming down with the flu. In turn, they would

get other people sick.
