Re: First-Timers from Wyoming

Well, I unfortunately put my tickets into STEP this morning. We've had to shift some priorities this year and things are just not lining up for us to go. :( I'm not sure 2014 is going to be our year either, so we'll look ahead to 2015 with hope. I'll see you all there eventually and will probably ke...

Re: I'm in S T E P

Well, I can confirm the STEP program is at least working. I unfortunately put my tickets up for sale this morning and less than an hour later I got a sold confirmation. I hope they go to a good home and hopefully I'll be in a better place to go next year.

Re: First-Timers from Wyoming

Tink- I guess I should have asked to start with, were you talking about a camp or people that just get together? The only reason we're not interested in a camp right now is that, being this is our first burn, we're not ready to commit to to what some require, not to mention the fees. We are just try...

Re: First-Timers from Wyoming

Will keep it in mind... Not looking to join a camp really but wouldn't mind talking to people if we can make it... Let me know when you have a firm date.

Re: One Item for BM a Day

Tattoogoddess - looks like you're on a roll! What are are the y straps you mentioned? We picked up a hitch mount bike rack this weekend and a few small used clothes items for cutting and creating. Also picked up a bunch of fabric on clearance.... Now just need to figure out what we are going to do w...

Re: First-Timers from Wyoming

We got our tent this week, and after some discussion I think we are going to go the cot route. We like the idea of added storage under the cots. We'll probably still go with a memory/egg-crate foam just to add a little bit to to comfort and insulation. Now that we have the tent I can get to work on ...

Re: One Item for BM a Day

We seam-seal all our tents. I plan on having this out a few times before August to make sure it'll work for us, so I want to have it ready for rain (and maybe snow if we can make it out camping as early as this May). It will be plenty wind-tested, out here we get +50mph wind gusts pretty regularly. ...

Re: One Item for BM a Day

Got our first BM item this weekend! Brand new tent. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71BSrUBG-EL._SL1500_.jpg It's a little bigger than what I was originally thinking, but we are going to get some cots, as has been suggested. I think they'll fit well with room to spare. We actually went and loo...

Re: First-Timers from Wyoming

Thanks for the advice everyone. I'll have to look into the cot options. I do like the mattress cause it allows us to cuddle up :D , not sure how well that'll work with cots. Our air mattress doesn't hold air like it used to so it may be time to look into other options any way. In talking with my wif...

Lemur - Thanks! I have seen some amazing images coming out of BM. I'm really excited about it, and hoping to experiment and play and then be able to take that experience back and use it in my business. Savannah - Thanks! I know I know.

First-Timers from Wyoming

Hello all! My wife and I are heading out for our first time this year and we are really excited! We've been talking about it for years and everything finally fell in line. This is going to be a huge experiment for, we are normally the quiet, reserved types, geeks to the core though. We would both be...
