Playa Bound

Ok, so I am a newbie.. this will be my first trip home. To be quite honest, initially I was interested but not necessarily drawn to it. But now I know that I just didnt have enough information. But,... send me to a few BM year round events... let me talk with folks who have gone... let me peek even one millimeter into the enormous, loving community that I know it is... IM THERE! I cant wait.... i very well could burst, the anticipation is so much.

Any suggestions for the playa baby? I know WATER WATER WATER WATER... anything else?

I hope to see you all there. 12 days for this playa bound baby.

From the Burning Man website

I was told theme camps could arrive on Saturday the 24th, but it looks like they don't want us there until Monday. I can certainly use the extra weekend to pack up the car, so LJ Camp may not be arriving until Sunday at the earliest or Monday. I will get back to you as soon as I check out all of the Theme Camp announcements that I have at home.


A message from the Department of Public Works -

Q: When can I arrive at Burning Man? Can I come early?

A: Our gates open on Monday, August 26th. Theme camps placed in Center Camp or the Esplanade and registered artists will be allowed to arrive on the Saturday before our gates open (August 24th.) All other early arrivals are *not* allowed - because we're not ready for you!

We know you're eager, but we are still making our city roads and infrastucture and cranking in high gear to finish safely and on time. Any extra body not working toward this effort is just in the way. Arrivals before August 26th tax our infrastructure, increase safety risks and cost the event money. The area used for Burning Man is closed until our event begins.

Please work with us by waiting until Black Rock City is ready for you. See you on the playa on Monday, August 26th.

Welcome home!

Some really good friends of mine (2 people) are looking for a ride from SF to Burning Man on the 23rd or 24th. If anyone can help out, please let me know via email:

10 more freaking days till we leave!!!

Since we're in Texas we're leaving on Friday the 23rd. That's 10 WHOLE DAYS!! I'm already going crazy, I'm not certain how I'm going to survive! :)

Regardless we found out last week we're at 105 degrees and Esplanade! Waaay too cool...

The official word.....

OK - we will not be making our way to the playa until Monday the 26th. Apparently only "APPROVED" themecamps will be allowed to arrive before Monday. So, please don't plan to find anyone at LJ Camp until Monday the 26th.

So, to back this up - here is the official word....
