As a virgin burner I am doing as much research as I possibly can. To organize all this information I began putting together a nifty little document on google docs. Its growing rapidly and at this point I think could really be helpful to anyone starting to do research. There are lists of things you may need, as well as links to helpful pages. Some of the info on there is specific to my personal planning, but the large majority would be helpful to any burner.
Enjoy! and if you have anything to add please post in this thread, I would love to hear any suggestions!

Combined with a spray bottle of water and a little soap, I found that sponge baths were far easier, less messy, and cleaned better than baby wipes. However, I only had two towels. If you've been out playing in the dust like a proper burner, you can't use a towel twice...maybe a washcloth first, then you could reuse the towel for drying.
Finally...like a dumbass (but mostly because a ticket didn't free up until a month before) I bought new boots to wear on playa, and we didn't get a chance to break each other in. They destroyed my feet. I didn't get playa foot, but I did get massive raw blisters. I still have holes in my feet now. If you want to take a large chunk of enjoyment out of your experience, try agony at every footstep.
Do you maybe have any specific tips or points to share from your experience?

Make your prep your own. Heck, planning the camp was ball!
