Just purchased the new Burb. I have to fly to Hotlanta Tuesday and drive it back here to Va. One more thing off the 2do list...I am not in panic mode....yet.

Are you planning on throwing a Tantric Unicorn Henna Tattoo Contest & Spank-a-Thon at your Burning Man camp this year?

Great! The form to submit your playa events to the Playa Events Directory (part of the Playa Info Directory) will be open for business starting on June 12, so get 'em ready!

The submission form will be available up to the Burning Man event, but only events submitted before July 1 (or the first 960 received, whichever comes first) will also be included in the What Where When guide, the printed playa events listing that's handed out at the Greeters' Station.

Eek - 77 days until the gates open...

Postby bluemiragemi » Mon Jun 09, 2014 12:42 pm

Newbie Burner. Crazy logistics have been ironed out - flying from Detroit to Reno, camping with the amazing Pretty Pickle Camp, volunteering with the Temple Guardians and Elliott's Bike Shop, taking the Burner Express, having tent/supplies trucked out by Videogasm...and now *PANIC* because I need to wrap my head around the little things.

What should I be focusing on RIGHT now?

Finalized a pack list this afternoon. Been reading tips on securing the tent, playa dust prevention, etc. Purchased a camelback. Got EL Wire shipment in the mail, now to sew it onto things...

Feeling excited. Nervous. Thought I'd share and ask. I can't be the only one :) Thanks for being the eplaya <3

I'm merging the 77 day thread with the existing countdown thread.

No need to panic, it sounds like you've got a lot of things sorted out. There are always a zillion little details, you'll get through them.

Don't panic, Em! Just move through your checklist, bit by bit. Maybe make a list of where you'll buy what. If you're like me, you'll probably still go to the hardware store 8 times, but, hey, at least that's not a dozen times. Also, if there's stuff you definitely want to buy from the 'net instead of in person, do that sooner rather than later to save on rush shipping.

I still don't know where I'll be living come August. No panicking at all at, though. It'll work out.

Thanks for the merge! And for the advice not to panic :) Hope, I totally am attempting EL-wire construction tonight!! Three feet of EL wire is way shorter than anticipated...luckily, I bought six packs of that...may have to ditch 1 outfit I was going to hook up with EL wire, in favor of more wire on two jacket/vests.

Yay for hardware stores! And lists. Lists are awesome.

3 feet is nothing! I have 20-30 feet on each of my nighttime jackets.

I start my drive in 74 days, 17 hours and 48 minutes... not like anyone is counting.

I have an app for that.

It's the final countdown. Ba nanana na na na nana. I'm working on outfits and piecing together my plans just a little bit at a time. EL wire is something I NEED to move on.

Not panicking, yet. There's always tomorrow.

Personally I'd wait until the Resource Guide issue of the Jack Rabbit Speaks, there are usually a couple decent deals to be had on things like EL-wire. Unless you actually need the material now, hold off a couple weeks and save a couple bucks.
