Reality sinking... I'm going to Burning Man, finally!

Reality sinking... I'm going to Burning Man, finally!

Postby Master » Sat Feb 04, 2012 5:41 pm

For three years I've been at Camp Envy dreaming to one day walk among you in the playa.

I've lost my identity a few times during this period, found and lost it again, but the only constant has been my dream to go to see the Man, ring the bell, and turn on, tune in, drop out.

For my 26th birthday I said, if it's the Gods Will, then I'll win a ticket in the lottery—and I did!

First thought was: now what? Now I prepare for what's to come.

So I am very happy to join you here on the ePlaya, and I hope I can get to know a few of you in the months to come until we meet at Home.

Much mettā to you all.

Woot Woot. super pleased for you, this is going to be an amazing year. have fun here on eplaya stay away from the ticket threads and get all the info you need its here somewhere, i seem to recall someone saying the best way to find ifo here is to google (your request) eplaya then use the link to the thread but im not up to speed on the search engine lately

welcome and see you in the dust in 2012.

Hello Savannah!

Thank you for your welcome.

I live in Florida, but I see you also caught Spanish my accent.
Good ear! :)

I'm hoping I'll be able to connect with some local burners in my efforts to lose my V-card...

Ah! There are some Florida Burner groups linked to here:
http://regionals.burningman.com/us_fl.html

And probably some on Facebook possibly, too.

As well as some great folks from Florida on this board . . . Bigdane and Junglesmacks are among the many. (Some ePlaya users list their cities under their avatars.)

Oh but it's ok, you see, I have an English friend who's also a newbie and he just made up his mind to try and get a ticket to fly to Burning Man this year, I'm sure he'll be happy to know grai! :wink:

It's nice to meet you Crypto!

Hey there! Welcome to the madhouse! Lots of tips and tricks on these boards. Jump on in and if you get lost just give a holler, there's always someone about to point you back in the right direction.
When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.

Thank you, Tamara!

I was very glad to read your reply here. It's definitely something I will keep in mind.

Not at all, Fishy; you should be enjoying your strange prescience in uncovering Mustard's previous nickname!

That would be a very difficult compromise, from Master to Mustard we at least are keeping to some phonetic similarities.
Besides, I very much doubt Margarita would like it, and it is not a good thing to thwart a witch!

I'm just worried about that form of novel set in early Soviet shared apartments.

And you would not be the only one. The Devil himself acknowledged it!
He said overall the Muscovites were still the same, ordinary people, but that the housing problem had corrupted them.
But in the end, so is all humanity. Mostly good hearted, but we all have our weaknesses.

welcome Mustard.....not totally convinced i like that nic yet...

The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
