Re: Tips for Shy People at Burning Man

I love this thread. I'm a 8 yr burner, still some what young (33 male), and I've had a couple years at Burning Man where I've felt so lonely and unconnected to people I thought about going home early. The toughest part for me is the icebreaker so I can actually start a conversation. I think because ...

Lol, I dont know why I even bothered responding. You all love to make assumptions and then tell people what they should be doing. Anyway, I could care less what you all think. I actually found a camp, so feel free to move on to trolling the next response. I hope you get off more on the next one and ...

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I'm checking out Malmart and PolyParadise. And to all the people who think they are retaining the Burning Man principles by being snarky to myself and others, FUCK YOU, you're actually not that funny, and come off like a bunch of trolls who have nothing better to do than...

Surely there is a theme camp that has ...

Ok, I'm a 8th time burner who has been on the fence about going to Burning Man this year because of how tough it is on my body. The heat in the morning makes impossible to sleep (and lack of sleep has been affecting my health), and I cant bring a shade structure as I live on the east cost. Anyway, d...

Looking for a camp on the Esplanade where I can meet new ppl

My girlfriend and I are coming to BM (my 7th time) and I wanted to join a new camp. We are looking for a camp preferrably on the Esplanade, that has more than 10-20 people, that has a shade structure we can put our tent under (we can pay for the convenience or work in the camp). If the camp has a gr...

Keeping cool on the playa. Flying from the East Coast

I'm coming to BM again, and flying from Maryland to Reno. I'll probably rent a car and buy a tent from Walmart. My problem last year was that I barely got any sleep because it was sooooo hot after like 7am in my tent. I know most of you will be like, "suck it up its part of BM", but I dont care, I w...

Thanks for all the great suggestions everyone ! I really appreciate it ! I've written all of them down and will be monitoring this thread for new ones as well. I'm going to definitely try the layered camo nets, wet towels, kiddie pool, and swamp coolor (or fan) on a generator ! I'm also looking into...

RV like conditions without an RV at Burning Man this year ?

So I've been to BM 5 yrs in a row and this year I really want a shower (at least every 1-2 days) and a semi cool place to sleep. I've found my biggest problems over the years have been : - feeling completely gross from being sticky for 3 days without a shower - going to bed at 6am and waking up at 8...

I would just hitch a ride with someone from the airport in Reno. I did that 3 years in a row with no problems. Just look for people that look they are going to BM (they are really easy to spot) and ask. I rented a car from San Fran last year and we picked up a girl hitching to BM at the Reno airport...

Forming a new DJ Camp on the playa (on the Esplanade) ?

Hey, I'm sure someone will flame me, but here it goes ... So I love all types of music (House,Electronic, Reggae, Breaks, Techno, Rap,etc), and I dont know of any camps that will allow a newbie DJ like me to join and DJ for a couple hours every night, so I wanted to create a camp of like minded peop...
