From Finland?

Hello my future friends! 2015 will be my first burn. I'm coming from Finland. Currently it looks like I will be flying solo. As you all know, it will be quite a hassle to haul all the required stuff to the desert. This is a lot of work even for the locals who live nearby, even more so for us who com...

Re: Best bar this year

This is great! Thank you for sharing your bar experiences. Argh... I wish I could have been there with you. Well, 2015! :coffee: My original idea was to try and join some other camp running a bar. Now I got this scary idea... should I try to set up my own? Totally have no idea how to pull that off. ...

Re: Predictions for Burning Man 2015...

I might attend both events myself. Ha! I might be bribed to have lunch with you near Moscone, if you ply me with Moomins. (And where else, but eplaya, will you find people demanding to be plied with Moomins?) What's with this Moomin stuff that people like so much? Is it like the hipster version of ...

Re: Predictions for Burning Man 2015...

Interesting BurnerFinn & thanks. But have to say, that particular SW does not inspire creativity, wonder how creative their conference attendee base is? Good point. Let's say they'd all be corporate drones. I'd say they will be the above than average creative and intelligent corporate drones. :) De...

Best bar this year

To all of you who enjoy a nice bar / pub experience, how was your burn this year? Did you visit many bars or theme camps with bars? Please share your experiences. I'm really curious to hear how you liked them. Which one was your favorite? What made it different from the rest? Pics / videos of them (...

Re: Wild speculation about cause and effect things.

I'm soooo glad I wasn't around back when Burning Man was fun. Haha! There seems to be a lot of veteran burners here who think past > future. I don't know why this came to my mind... ...as a kid, I was a big fan of Metallica. When the black album (magnum opus of the band) was released, majority of t...

Re: Predictions for Burning Man 2015...

There might be a lot more international tech people in 2015. Why? In 2015, the annual Salesforce event, Dreamforce, will start on Sept 15. That's in San Francisco. This year there's many weeks between the events. 2015, they're only one week apart. Dreamforce should draw in a big international crowd ...

Re: Burning Man Destroyed My Life

Drawingablank, did you go this year?

If you did, how was it?

It was awesome to read about your first burn. You experienced something which I really hope to get out of my first burn in 2015.

Awesome.

Re: Elliot's Bicycle Service & Tap Room

This kind of bike would be awesome for BM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recumbent_bicycle Obviously not a two wheel one but a three wheel one. Would be awesome wheels for slow cruising around the playa, watching art and people... I'd come with one of those with me if I wasn't flying over from Europe.

Re: Tips for Shy People at Burning Man

I consider myself as a shy person. That's actually one of the reasons I'm planning to come to BM. Maybe I will learn to make new friends more easily due to this experience, who knows. I hope so. My plan to "not be shy" in BM is to put myself into a position where it's not possible to be one --> pour...

Hello! I'm a wannabe burner from Finland. I've dreamt about going for a few years now. This year the urge to get there has started to become overwhelming. I've watched tons of youtube videos of BM and read tons of BM related stuff I could find. Who am I? I'm 35 year old bloke from Finland. Married,...
