I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina near Asheville. I found out about Burning Man through a friend, James Lanning, who has been to the event. He said it was awesome.
A little about myself. First off, I am a member of the New Order of Druids and a member of the Eastern Native Tree Society. I am a very nature-oriented person. I found the Burning Man immediately interesting since it reminds me of the Wicker Man effigies mentioned in texts concerning the ancient druids. It's neat this legacy lives on, though fortunately without the human sacrifices.
In short. I just want to say " hello " to everyone here!
