Cool, this year was my first burn and I had a total blast. Is there anything that goes on around here or is it all centered around NYC?

at least now there are two of us. It's a start. I found out about a burn in Delaware on Columbus Day Weekend called Playa Del Fuego though.

cool, found out there is a local "chapter" in Albany/Troy. I think they are just getting it revved up because I would swear it wasn't there a couple of weeks ago.

It's starting to roll though. This thread's only been open a couple of days. I've been recruiting too. Anyone thinking about going to the regional burn in Delaware?

I'm going for the first time in 2004. I live out in springfield and am working on restoring this old 1974 14' camp trailer to pull out to the 2004 burn. Glade to know there are some burners out here. People look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I'm going in 2004. I've been a closet burner for years and I've decided this is the year. As soon as tickets go on line my order will be in.

There are quite a lot of us in the New England area... :D www.bostonburners.org is the mailing list. Events are happening all the time.

There is also a seasonal meet and greet for Burners in the Boston area... http://chaoshacker.org/meetngreet/

And a truck share to stuff to and from Burningman http://burningtruck.chaoshacker.org/

Finally, we had our first regional NE burn event last June...

Solo New York Burner here. Me and my roomate were with a los angelos/seattle theme camp for BM '03. He moved out to the west coast, so I'm last straggler. All alone. Need to meet new group/ solos. I would love to meet any burners!!! I live in Albany, so if you are around here drop me a note. I don't bite and have all my shots.

Realize I'm picking up on an old thread here.... there are a bunch of Burners in New York City that usually send a truck or something out to Burning Man. There is also a Boston group that does some stuff. As other messages in here mention, there is a Albany/Troy group as well. I think they have a Yahoo group.

I'm in Amherst, MA myself. Met a guy in 2002 that was going to Umass and was going, but I don't think he's around anymore. Anyone else in town? I went in 2003 and left early, but will be back in 2004.

I've been to Sterling before. Don't remember too much of it but went hiking somewhere out in that direction several years ago. Maybe Washachusett?

Not motivated myself to drive to Boston for the meets they have out there, but have heard they have a pretty active group.

The easiest way to plug into a regional group is through the Black Rock City Year Round thing and look for your state/city. There IS indeed a Albany group, and True is the guy you want to talk at. There are spring events that go on up there. I beleive it would be well worth your time to do some research and instigate some contact! Spring is coming and things will start to happen very soon.

Tell True Burner Vic sentcha!

I live in Poughkeepsie, so am kind of on the edge of both Albany and NYC orbits. My girlfriend just moved from Albany, so there's a Capital District connection... :)

Playa Del Fuego is also held in the Spring on Memorial day weekend. I have not been as active as I normally am but hope to get back to it soon. A fair number of people come down from NYC and New York state.
