We are a couple of California Burners. We would like to extend the following offer to a Euro first timer...
If you or someone you know is thinking about going to BRC for the first time and finding the logistics a little daunting, we hope the following may tip the scales in favor of going.
Pick you up from San Francisco Airport or Reno Airport
Drive you and your stuff to the Playa
Provide you with the following gear
One (Possibly two) crappy bicycle(s)
Pretty much all the basics for a first Burn.
You would still need to purchase a ticket to the event, and make your way to Northern Cal. We have a large truck that seats 4 somewhat comfortably and we look on this as a gifting opportunity. We will stop off on the way so you can stock up on water, food and such.
We are still sorting out our details (It is possible we will get with a Theme Camp with a large community Generator, so you may have 110v AC as well). Currently it is our plan to leave Santa Clara, California on Sunday Morning and stay on-playa thru Monday.
If this sounds like it would work for you, or if you have any questions, please drop us a line.

I am signed up to be in Hushville and camping alone (well, so far in my camp - I know that I will not be alone with 60,000 fellow burners) - anyway - I could definitely use pointers - I have been avidly reading this blog and have so many things going on about what to bring, what to wear, how to camp, but really need advice with BEING at BM. I have questions that would make me blush if I were to ask them face to face, but would really like to know the answers to.
Someone who is comfortable with radical inclusion and radical self expression could probably give me more advice that I could probably want.
For example (not one of my blushing questions) I am an early riser normally. I know BM runs late into the night, but if I get up at 6 am and wander around and enjoy the activities at that time of the day - how do I sleep in the afternoon. Do I go crash in some camps shade structure (is that frowned upon) or retire to my ghastly hot tent, or sleep under a shade created at my camp outside? If I can't take the noise at night when I am trying to sleep (and ear plugs aren't helping), can I head out into the playa and sleep on the playa?
