Anyone from the Mid West going to BM 2012?

Postby tattoogoddess » Wed Sep 14, 2011 5:42 pm

Yep early but planning.
My self and one or two other people want to attend BM in 12. This will all be our first year. We are located in Iowa. Just wondering if anyone around here is going to go in 12 and would have room? I will also be offering up a geodesic dome to use and pitch in for gas.

Please let me know!

Planners prep the best! Mind you: some flexibility is good too, because something is always bound to go a little sideways. :D

Make some regional contacts by going to the main Burning Man website, clicking on "Regionals" in small print near the top, and then clicking on the map 'til you narrow in on your state and ones next to it. Join their mailing lists--and get news of their Decompression parties. It's a great way to meet local Burners and network/rideshare.

You may also want to take a gander at the Regionals & Events forum near this one.

Welcome to the board . . .

Thank you! I did stumble on this a little later. I have looked at it and plan on posting soon.
I'm a first time burner.... Don't hug me to much I may pop.

I want to plan to make this a amazing time for me and the friends I want to bring with. Plus need to start saving!

I'll be going next year as well - leaving from Saint Louis. I'll be pulling a trailer, driving a 4 door pickup truck, and will have the entire truckbed empty. I'm a resident of a theme camp and although I cannot grant you access to our space, I have references for being safe/sane to ride with. I have every intention of making the trip solito - but would consider 2 passengers in exchange for distributing fuel cost in thirds. Post here if you are interested or PM me. I won't come up to get you or drop you off - so I may not be ideal for you.

Hey Tattoogoddess, me & a bud are heading down from Wisconsin next year. We just bought a school bus that we are converting to a camper so we are committed. Like others have said, check out your regional & get involved with them. 2012 will be my first time too & hooking up with experienced Burners is indispensable. They will be your best source for preparing for the journey. I am fortunate to have met a lot of creative & interesting people that have all been there & know what to do(and more importantly what not). I plan on attending as many of their meetings & getting involved as much as I can. I hope you have good folks near you that you can get involved with. :mrgreen:
In your wildest dreams you can not imagine the marvelous SURPRISES that await YOU.

My fiance & I are going in 2012 for our honeymoon. We are from Sioux City, Iowa. So far we plan on travelling alone but are open to carpooling/convoying if the right situation presents itself. We have a Jeep Grand Cherokee we plan on taking but if we find a good truck we can put our camper on we might do that instead. Feel free to message me if you want to talk more about travel plans. Nice to see other Midwest burners!! We too are virgins but we've been seriously planning for a few years now. Hope to see you all soon!! <3 Shey & Cole

We are going. Have 4 door pickup and 5th wheel. Some room but probably not a lot. This will be our first year. Sheyanah, we would love to convoy with you, if timing works out. Keep in touch.

Shameless plug for Interfuse - hosted by Midwest Burners, 4 day camping in May, BM principles, and is an official MidWest regional hosted in South Central MO.

http://www.midwestburners.com/interfuse/

Chicago and KC areas host some events as well. Volunteer.

good size group from NE going this year for 10 ish days. Tallgrassburners.com.
we've been meeting quite a bit lately, so if you're not too deep in IA you should attend sometime.
We're also doing a CORE project this year, and we'll take any participant help we can get!

I would love to come but I do not drive and all my money is going to Burning Man. Blah. I think the Iowa burners are having a meet up. We should all get together at the meet and greet and BDC (i think its monday?)

Also will there be any burners coming through Iowa on there way to BM? I have a bike I need taken out (im taking amtrak from a non checked baggage stop) Please let me know if you could help me out with this. Thanks!
