Hi All!

Hi All!

Postby Zorphas » Tue Jun 26, 2012 9:16 am

Hello,

My name is Sia, 27M, I've been to Burning Man before and I have to say it's by far the most amazing experience anyone could ask for, I'm a big Festival fan, I also enjoy smaller festivals such as Lightning in a Bottle but nothing beats Burning Man! I've always gone to these events with ether 1 other person who I end up having to babysit or by myself and as much as I've tried, I haven't contributed as much as I would like to. This year I'm hopping to find a group to go with and to get more involved with the community so I can really contribute and to give my experience a little direction.

I'm big into consciousness research, sacred geometry, etc. I love conversations about anything/everything. What I have to offer to any group who may be a good match is an extra ticket to burning man this year (since my friend pulled out on me) and I'm also driving a van by myself (unless I find a different mode of transportation) which would leave me with room for ether more stuff or people.

Last year for burning man I moved out of Boston, where I had been living for 12 years, to California. I did a 2 month road trip + burning man August last year. This year my lease in Anaheim is up in August, I'm gonna head over to Burning Man and have no plans as far as where I want to live beyond that as of yet, but chances are I'll be back in CA. I would love to meet up and get to know some people who are going previous to the event! I will be in Boston July 1st-20th and in Anaheim, CA the rest of the time until August 15th when I'm planning to go to BM this year. I was also thinking of maybe starting the trip early and visiting Yellowstone before the event ;)

Burner for life! :mrgreen:

If you are interested in meeting people from California, I have a wonderful group of friends (I'm not sure how many of them are going to be able to make it to burning man), though we are in Northern California. Let me know if you are interested in meeting a buncha laid back people with excellent conversational skills. <33

Allow myself to introduce...myself. I am Ariel. 27 years old and I
live in Riverside County. I liked what you had to say about yourself
and would be down to roll out to the Playa with you. It would be my FIRST BM,
but I have been to other festivals like High Sierra Music Festival and
Telemagica, plus various desert parties. I am also going to Indigo
Vortex in Apple Valley and Decom (Youtopia), which I already have my
tickets for. Unfortunately, I do not or can afford at this time a BM
ticket. I believe in manifesting your own destiny. I also LOVE a good
road trip and would be into leaving early to check out Yellow Stone Park.
If you are interested, you can PM on here or e-mail me at:
awbarazone@gmail.com. Also, I have a Facebook account:

Was I right about that popularity thing?

I'm from Fullerton. Have you ever considered the O.C. Burners?

ocburners@yahoogroups.com

"Chords of Wood" is also on Facebook.

We're currently working on our core project, "Chords of Wood", and always love to have more help. You can meet other O.C. Burners, such as the group that runs "Bad Idea Theater" each year on the playa. I camp at Anonymous Village, along with several other O.C. Burners.

We are everywhere...even in Orange Co.

Hi Sia,

My name is Chaitsy, i'm 36, I live in Australia, and will be flying into LA to make my way to Burning Man. So far I have not arranged transportation from LA to Black Rock and am keen to go with a group of people. If you have a space in your vehicle available, it would be great to join you.

I look forward to your response!

Hi Chaitsy,
Welcome to eplaya from another Australia. PM if you are having issues with transport - I will see if I can hook you up with another Australian.
Cheers
