Need Help! / from Japanese Burner

Postby sishou » Sat Aug 21, 2004 9:01 am

Thank you for reading my message!

I want to participate in BURNINGMAN from Japan this summer.
I was yearning for BURNINGMAN from my high school days.
I got airline ticket which arrives in San Francisco on August 27.
Of course, I also have the ticket of BURNINGMAN.
However, I cannot yet find the partner of car sharing to Playa..
Since I do not have license of a car, going by myself is impossible.

Supposing you pass through the town San Francisco or near it between August 27 and August 30, please put me on a car to PLAYA!!!

---I am a 23-year-old male.
---Please visit a supermarket, in order to buy water and food on the way to PLAYA.
---If a margin is in the capacity of a tent, please let it use.
---I`m not good at English. But I think there is no big problem.
---I will gladly share gas and other expenses .

We should be able to help you out on everything but the tent. We have an amazing camp too if you would like to share burning man with us. You should probably look into buying a tent in SF or renting one. The rest is all good.

Call me when you arrive in San Fran & we will discuss the details of pickup.

I second that. Sensei just has a weakness for foreign (and especially Japanese) burners.

Thank you very much for your replies !!!

Since there was a reply immediately, my uneasiness was canceled.

Tomas . thank you again!
I will buy the cheap small tent.While being in Japan, I want to discuss about the details of a pickup by e-mail or e-playa.There is uneasiness in discussing by telephone.I am not good at telephoning in English.And I want to grasp the rough schedule.Is it all right?

Thomas, it'd be really great to start blogging this. If you follow through with your generous offer I think it'd be damn interesting to post what your experiences were hooking up with Sishou.

Just a thought.

My friend Sean speaks Japanese pretty well. I'll be doing some bartending for Thomas, so come ask for Miki and I'll hook you up with Sean if you need an interpreter for anything. I'm sure he'd love to have someone to toss some Japanese back and forth with again.

Hi, JezebelinHell!
Thank you very much!

I lived in Hawaii for one year when I was 9 to 10 years old.
So maybe I can easily to adapt your lifestyle.
And there are some people who can speak Japanese !?
It eases me further.
Thank you again!

Welcome to America!

Please come to The Meet 'N' Greet at Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro, which is located in:

Wheeeee!ville
4:00 and Venus.

The party begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday and lasts until past sundown. We ask that you bring either 1) something to drink; 2) something to eat; or 3) ice.


Last year we had probably 100 people show up. The people who are scheduled to attend so far [those who do not live in Wheeeee!ville] are: Papa Bear, Sparkletarte, dj big E, the Cryptofishist, JezebelinHell, Music Vixen, Zona the Stona, YonderMan, Release Me, Selkie, Dardanian, MissNev, Dustdevil, and Rian Jackson. This list will be updated as we approach playa time. If you name is not on the guest list (and it doesn't have to be, it's just kind of cool to see who's thinking about attending), please add it.

Hi,souldancer!
I like dance ,too.
But,I have no technique of a dance.
I only move body together with sound rather than a dance.
The purpose is spiritual uplift in the shortest distance.

Hi,SED!
I will go your party as much as possible.
I went to WIRE`04 this summer.
http://www.m-on.jp/ftp_view/wire04_onair/
It was really fun!!!
Of course,BurningMan has more pleasure and discovery.
I expect.

Thank you for your replies!

Yes! That's why I call it a souldance! Because it's a dance that comes from inside. I LOVE to dance, and I believe I'll be dancing quite a bit at Burning Man!

Again, I look forward to meeting you! I hope you have a safe trip to the US, have you ever been here before?

Hey scratch that last question, if I had been paying attention I would have seen that you lived in Hawaii for a year. Sorry...I had read that earlier, but in my haste I didn't remember you had said that.

My bad.

I don't know where you are keeping a list but my wife Sheri and I were at the meet and greet last year and plan to be there this year also.

sishou - If you will let me practice, I will try to speak Japanese with you!
I have been learning (just because), or at least trying to, for the last couple of months.

Also - I just want to say to everyone who replied - this is going to be my 1st year, and seeing the responses and the spirit involved continues to make me more excited every day!

Take care!

Carla

I probably sound like an idiot when I post - my excuse is not enough practice...

This rocks so righteously! I am just in awe of you, Nostratomas.

And a bright Playa welcome to you too, Sishou. Would love to meet you. Come to Opera Camp sometime during the week, ask for Wolfie and I'll feed you chocolate.

You're gonna have a blast. Heck, we're ALL gonna have a blast! :D

diane, I am someone who should be held in awe. But seriously, I love to share and there is no experience better to share with a new friend than the Playa experience. We had a great time at our camp & were very pleased to have Ikeda add to the funky mix. Only four of us (out of 25 peeps) actually had previously know each other before this year's burn and we all got along, worked, played & got freaky together. What a week it was!!!

Keep me posted of stuff going on in OR, I married a Fire Dancing Stripper on the Playa this year, from Portland. So, I will be coming up there shortly & make it a point to keep burners in my life.

Kind of late notice, but...

The Portland fire spinners community is having a BBQ and potluck this Sunday in the usual Salmon Street Bridge/Esplanade locus. Things are kicking off around 6PM and then they spin at dark-thirty, as usual.
