Time Event
I've got lots of questions
As I pack and think of things, I'm posting them to my own journal. I've read the faqs and the survival guide.

It's a last minute decision for me, a ticket fell into my lap, and a job didn't, so I'm going. I've never been, but for the past 18 years I've done a lot of camping at racetracks, and before that I did a lot of SCA camping. I also have a lot of friends who've been going for the past 11-12 years.

I even have a burning man filter for my questions.

So, if you're bored, or would like to share your experience, please check out my questions.

anyone driving from Chicago area and not left yet?
One of my campmates is having a breakdown in her travel plans about an hour from Chicago. Anyone driving from that area happen to not have left yet?

Current Mood: hopeful
Hrm... So, it seems that I have purchased a truck that is a wee bit larger than I had thought. Therefore, I have space for one person and some stuff, leaving early tomorrow morning. We will be staying in Reno on Monday night and coming back by Tuesday afternoon. If anyone is for some weird reason looking for a ride, drop me a line at (my user name) at gmail.

ETA: The spot is now taken.
Question from a first-timer for the more experienced burners:

My ticket is on willcall.  I"m not on the early arrival list, although I do have my receipt.  My ride wishes to arrive early tomorrow morning.

Am I in danger of being left to rot at the gates until they are flung open for the masses?  Must I find myself an alternative way to get there?  Anyone have experience with this at all?

I'm unbelievable excited.  See y'all on the PLAYA!
can't make it
i am going to miss you guys SO MUCH this year! :(
