Welcome to the ePlaya! Don't worry, time flies and before you know it you'll be wishing you had a few more days to get everything together before you load up for the journey
Check the regionals page on the main site and connect with your regional group. Even if it's not based in your city, get on that newsletter. They'll hopefully be able to keep you informed of events closer to home throughout the year, and like the Jack Rabbit Speaks they may have useful info for next year's burn (if you're coming from a great distance, they may even be helping people coordinate shipping and travel arrangements). Of course, this site's also a great resource, and the wonderful community can be a great 'support group' for when you're going through playa withdrawals.
