My Wife and I made the trip from Tampa in 2011. We're in the lottery this year too, best of luck. Have any travel plans worked out yet?

My name is Brandon I have lived in the tampa area for most of my life. I love to travel and camp and this is something I've wanted to do for quite some time. I participate in our regional burns here in florida and plan to expand and visit other burns in different states. I don't have all the details worked out on how I am getting there just hoping for the tickets right now :) I have made a 24 ft diameter PVC dome for our local burn but plan to build a more playa ready dome by the time I get out there.

See, now thats an introduction!

What is wrong with the 24' dome that you couldn't bring it to BRC?

I would just like to have something more structurally sound than the PVC dome. I love my dome dont get me wrong there has been some amazing memories made in it! When my girl and I first started out making the dome we didn't foresee some of the subtle differences that would make it work better in the long run. So now that we have gotten a few festivals under our belt with our PVC we are ready to make take the next step!

That makes a ton of since!

We're (as a camp) going through similar 'learning curves' with our dome cover.

Great to meet others from this area. We have not been able to attend any of the regional burns, but I am aware of the one in Lakeland, Burning Brother in Gulfport, and of course Transformus. Last year we flew to Sacramento & did the RV thing, hoping for a road trip this year. Based on the outcome of ticketing we should be planning that trip pretty soon. The official word is the drawing will be Jan 31 & Feb 1. Good Luck.

Sorry to hear that, hopefully the STEP program will fix all this for you. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
