Because August keeps getting closer. It's both exciting and terrifying.
I'm a Burner virgin from Nova Scotia, Canada, and this is just the right year for me to do BM. I sort of devoured most of the older posts on this board (I used to keep myself amused at work writing lists for things I needed, things I had, etc.). I really thought things were all coming together, I have a flight into San Francisco (it was far cheaper), I have a ticket to BM, my friend and I were going to rent a box truck and camp out, experience everything we could and create some art and community.
But...now she can't go. So things have gotten a little more complicated. Camping out by myself and renting a huge truck and all that seems, well, lonely and expensive. We weren't going to try attaching ourselves to a theme camp, but now that seems like the best option.
If...just a little daunting. Hence the introduction, hi everyone! I've been making the people around me crazy for the last two years talking about Burning Man. Thought I'd say hi, because I need to figure some of this shit out. And I hope I see some of you guys on the playa.
