Re: Dropping by to say hi from Blighty.

Welcome, Lady Coco! I will give you 5 random tips :) * Everyone in your party should have their own pair of work gloves. (Mine are leather; they are very sentimental at this point). Put them on before any work at all. "I'm just going to pound this stake" often becomes "I just pounded ...

Re: Hey all!

Welcome! :D If you have a reliable vehicle and like driving, it's better than flying. You can buy all your stuff ahead of time, pack it painstakingly and be on your own schedule. I'm glad you know about your local groups; just take the plunge and go to their events & casual meetups. Most Burners...

Re: Hair

If I were going to do that, I'd make sure to pack a bottle of rich conditioner or hair mayonnaise (something aimed at African American hair is also good for curls in non African-Americans) and have a wide-tooth hair pick. Post-playa, a long rinse, a gentle wash, then sit with the conditioner in for ...

Re: Insects and critters

I don’t recall reading anything about needing bug spray or defending angainst critters. Do any of these exist on the Playa? Not usually. It's too harsh an environment on the lakebed itself, although you will find suicidal jackrabbits and whatnot in the approach to the playa. My campmate once got at...

Re: Camp visual identity

I think you should start Bad Typography Camp and print out your camp name in Comic Sans with really bad kerning in black on white office paper taped together. :lol: On a different note, I'm with Ratty: I don't really like stickers or pins or whatnot that have a camp name all that prominent.

Re: Arctica busy times

I would go right when they open, and beat the rush. Mid-day always seems the worst wait, but it's pretty festive. Don't cut it too close to the end of the day; they have to end the line somewhere. Bring water, a hat, and if you have one, a wagon. If everyone in camp takes turns, it's not so bad. Or ...

Here is some more advice that you didn't ask for. I would skip joining a camp for your first year on the playa. During the week, get on your bike and cover as much ground as you can to see what is out there. The natives are friendly. During your wanderings in Black Rock City, you might come across ...

Re: New burner looking at 2018. Tons of questions.

Best place to hookup with people that want rides? I think the RV holds like 7 ppl and it will be just me driving from seattle to BRC. There are a few Seattle burners on here. Can you tow a boat? :D Seriously, you and your wife might connect with https://regionals.burningman.org/regionals/north-amer...
