i have a few questions. i live on the east coast (bmore, md to be precise) and know only one or two burners, with whom i have lost touch in the past 3 years, so really i know none. i've never been before, but have been interested and wanting since my sister passed away on '03 (when i first learned about it from her friends in seattle). does anyone know how i can find burners in my area, and the best mode of transport? i know it's probably early to start planning, but i know that i need a lot of time for prep or i would bug out at the last minute. when do tickets go on sale?
also, i noticed that there's quite a bit of grumbling from old-burners about the effect that virgins have on the whole experience. but think about this: every city evolves, just like people evolve. and brc will never be the same two years in a row, and it's foolish to expect it to. everyone gets out what they put in, and it would be horribly sad for this event to turn into a battle between old-burners and virgins over what traditions will be kept and thrown away. so let the city evolve and just see where it goes.
