Hey this is Dan from Houston, Texas. I'm 35, single, male, and a BM virgin. I've been lurking for a couple months since 2013 tickets went on sale. I first read about BM in an early 90's write-up in Rolling Stone magazine and have read up on the evolution of the event for years. Hopefully, this can become at least a semi-annual event.
A lot of the regional mailing lists are completely dead with no activity over long periods of time. . . this board looks active so here I am.
I camped and backpacked a lot in my teens but haven't at all since then. Still, I feel like packing everything in and out is the best option. I want to bring as little as necessary after essentials such as food, water, sun protection, clothing, first aid, etc. I'm going to fill my pack and everything else will be optional. A lot of weighing the necessity of items between now and August shall ensue.
The drive for me will take three days and 2000+ miles!
So where are all y'all Texans at? I hope to make some connections in the next few months online or in person.
