Hi,
I moved to Crestline late last year and was wondering if any of you here wanted to hang out?
Welcome to eplaya. Tell a bit about yourself. What makes you excited? Are you heading to Burning Man at some point?

Wow! You are in this area! :)

How many Burns have you been to?
I had a full head of curly brown hair when I first came to Burning Man. Now I'm a burned out shell of the man I used to be. Do the math. Uggh! I'm near that 20 year mark.

Re: Greetings from Boston :)

That cross country trip is a lot of fun. I did it with my artcar a few times. It's like a traveling carnival. The area reserved for Burning Man is 7 square miles, so the open feel is still there. You can be out in the open playa and do a full 360 spin and not see another person. I'm in the suburbs s...

Re: Greetings from Boston :)

Welcome back Raymond. BRC has changed a bit over the years, but the overall feel is the same. I've been afraid to skip years for fear of losing momentum. 2020 was tough, but I don't feel I've missed anything since it didn't happen. I guess you're planning on coming back in 2021? Indications are that...

For some weird reason, 2021 is looking a lot brighter. Vaccines on the fast track and new leadership in Washington.
