Poly Paradise (Edinburgh near 4:15) has an event called Poly High Tea which is a panel discussion of the poly lifestyle. Everyone is invited (Mon-Sat, 1 - 3 PM). This might be a good place to meet some poly folk and hear a good discussion of the topic.

... the burner community in DFW is so tiny (and an hour's drive away) and most of our familiar burner friends live in other states, so having regular events with any burners is nearly non-existent. Most people here have never *ever* heard about BM and the others have some very rigid stereotypes in ...

Re: Lasting change from experimental societies?

Also, has anyone ever read Walden Two by B.F.Skinner? It's fantastic, really reminds me of the ideals of BM put into use as a self sustaining society. BM is not really self-sustaining. A lot of resources are brought to the desert, consumed and a lot of garbage hauled away and dumped. I am trying to...

I, too, love the fact that this person has done her homework. You will do fine at BM. As far as shade goes, there will be plenty of camps (thousands?) with shade that will welcome you in during the day. I agree that you should go cheap, borrow the SUV, buy a cheap tent, forget shade structure. Don't...

Gyre, I am an overachiever plus I could not figure out how to get the .3 kid. Although I have met a few kids that might qualify... :shock:

Dr. Jet, I agree -- I would not want a lot of North Texans around.
