Re: The Bar 2018 Edition

Hi Savannah, yeah, time for some perspective....and for me, that comes with distance..I'll be in "camp envy", watching from afar. I'll count on you to pick up my social slack!!....maybe you can even go work Perimeter?... How could I work the first time for Perimeter if you're not there to witness i...

There are quite a few more ... some positive, some negative ions ... need both ...

Welcome, JMS ! :D You have already volunteered plenty, forrest gump is quite correct when he urges you not to overcommit. I have seen sooo many virgins with heat exhaustion. Even practiced Burners sometimes get dehydrated or exhausted. You can't volunteer or have fun if you're working yourself to de...

I'm sorry to hear you won't make it this year, Yggy; I'd missed the original post. :(

But I understand needing to take a year off. This was almost my year to do so, and then I just sort of found myself preparing anyway.

Re: Cot vs. Blow-Up Mattress

I think a cot is slightly easier than an air mattress (and has room storage beneath) but I have both. The cot is REI's $100 model, which has held up well (cheaper models are available by other makers, but I don't know of their quality) and the mattress is a Coleman. In general, Coleman seems to make...

Re: Specific costumes

I will say, I strongly discourage outfits that obscure the face. We communicate with our face. We meet and interact with strangers at the brief week-long event. If you are inside an outfit that obscures your face, you are in spectator mode. I disagree about the spectator thing, but I still understa...

I don’t recall reading anything about needing bug spray or defending angainst critters. Do any of these exist on the Playa? Not usually.
