Re: Volunteerism Decline Discussion

If you volunteer at home it's only natural to give a helping hand at the burn. And on the flip side, volunteering at the burn has opened up the world of volunteering at home. All non-profits have paid employees at the highest levels. Does that mean you shouldn't volunteer at the animal shelter or To...

Re: The largest naked playa stampede: a stand to unite

Hi, Why don't you just join the naked pub crawl? There's an all day marathon run, critical tits, million bunny march and a gazillion other organized things that I never attend. Monday night fireworks, all the various burns on different days. Who has time to get naked and do nothing.....

Re: Two first timers looking for an art camp x

Acid Sonia, Welcome to ePlaya. If you are serious about helping with an art project please tell us where you live. Making art doesn't start at the event. You will most likely need to join up with a group near your home.

The week-end before the Super Bowl. That's in 2 weeks. Roseville Ca to Reno. We are in the last car. Tolerated by the conductor for 20 or 30 years. Every year could be the last. 60 burners. Party at the sands in a suite or two. Chartered bus back the next afternoon. I won't give you the details but ...

Re: First Timer - solo or camp option?

I camped solo for 7 years. It's great. Be your own boss. Three years ago we, (the friends I had made at the event), decided to go legit. We are still our own boss. The four of us. Don't be afraid to go it alone. Say 'yes' a lot. You won't die. You won't be any lonelier than if you joined a camp. Bur...

You can go there and get a volunteer job. You will be busy, tired and overwhelmed. Read everything. Connect with local bur...

I remember when the TV sat on the floor and had 8 inch legs under the cabinet. There was also a TV lamp on top of it. That would save you from going blind. Or so they said.
