Moonwatcher, please don't feel like a chump for registering once like an honest person. If you're still interested in attending, get your time off, save some cash, make a pack list and a shop list, and tell your friends you're looking so they'll think of you if they hear of some spares. There's still STEP and the Open Sale to come, and every June, like clockwork, people drop out once life starts getting real and school, work, family or fate starts shuttin' down vacations. Don't place any non-refundable deposits, maybe, but--if
your life is amenable--be ready. I fervently hope you will be lucky. Despite the pain of being denied a ticket that you may be seeing around you in the community, virgins are welcome on the playa. Something about being there brings out the best in virtually all of us.
Sometimes the worst too, but that is usually rectified with a nap and a Sprite.
Welcome to the board.
