Re: Virgin Burner from Charlotte NC

google is your friend!

eplaya + keyword will search this website to better facilitate your info gathering.

I know several burners from Charlotte; look on Facebook for local groups with whom you could connect.

Burning Man Reddit also has a wealth of general information in the sidebars.

Re: Not Going to Burning Man at Burning Man

Our camp had over 2,000 visitors (we guesstimate, who's counting?) per day. I'm camp Mom/pfluffer. If my awesome SO had not appeared with the tandem to drag me out, I'd have never left camp this year. As it was, I got to the trash fence TWICE (woo hoo) and over to buzz about on the 9 side back in th...

Re: California Fires: Camp, Lost, Eden, Mountaineer, Woolsey, etc.

We've got folks here trying to get county building codes modified so that people can build straw bale or ceramic homes, which are both earthquake and fire resistant. Up at the Ojai Foundation, the only building that survived Thomas fire was a cob/straw/earth construction; the flames went right up an...

Re: California Fires: Camp, Lost, Eden, Mountaineer, Woolsey, etc.

Canoe: that would be correct. Thomas fire, last year in Ventura County, was caused by an old, under-maintained transformer that blew and sparked the drought-ridden vegetation that was growing *over* the transformer. Negligence. The utility has confirmed this, and just recently got legislation passed...

Re: Greetings Everyone

Hi!

I would suggest that you connect with local burners and get involved with your regional burn.
There are probably FaceCrack groups that are designed for this.

Good Luck!!!

Re: California Fires: Camp, Lost, Eden, Mountaineer, Woolsey, etc.

We went through the Thomas fire last December.

I'm really amazed at how resilient the native oaks are; they don't really catch fire, they get singed bark and their leaves *might* drop/burn but the trees survive.

Re: Oregon Country Fair in the news

My camp neighbored with OCF/Camp I Am for a couple of burns.

Great neighbors.

Entheos report. We stopped by on Wednesday evening. People were jumping on trampolines. They had a 'gifting booth' out front for 'offerings' from their camp. There was a DJ. Not a particularly pretty camp. Not a particularly inviting camp. I hope their *back of house* amenities were more cushy, for ...

An RV that claims to sleep 6 will probably only sleep three comfortably.
If you take tents to store stuff in/ use as changing rooms/sleep extra folk; it *could* work with 5 people.
