Post by LucyHofmann » Mon Aug 29, 2016 9:38 pm

Go on... say it! "This burn isnt over!" True but for years this has been a thing slowly creeping into my field of vision and this year ive had it. I saw the conseruxtion of MonkeyLove and i saw it trucked off and it broke my heart. Im going. 2017 its happening. Im a big time planner, prior service, maker.... blah blah. I wanna make a camp/village. We've got 4 people for sure, anyone else wanna join? Also looking for camp ideas!

I haven't been since my first year in 2010. I'm planning for 2017 as well. I'll keep on eye on this post to see what you're planing.

My boyfriend and I are planning on going to BM 2017 as well. I don't know any other burners, but I would be nice to go with some other people. Keep me posted :)

After the frantic "I must join a theme camp" rush of posts pre burn this year, I must say I find your radical self reliance to be a refreshing change.

Folks this is how you do it.

Hi Guys
Just seen your post.
I have never been to Burning Man but would absolutely love to go next year and if you'll have me would love to join your camp.
My friends are not keen to go so for now it's just me all alone looking for tribe to foster me :)
I'm based in London currently but moving to Canada early next year.
Would love to help out and be involved in any prep work that is need just let me know what needs to be done.
Let me know
Sally

Hey, my girl and I will be attending 2017 for our first time. We feel a little alone because we don't know anyone else that's even open to the idea of Burning Man. I would love to join a new camp. I think it would be a good environment for us. I'm also prior service as well and a big planner. We are our of Florida though. I will watch this thread. I'd love to contribute anything I can to the camp.

2017 will be my first burn and since everyone around me that i talk about BM has no clue and even after i describe it they aren't for it so im looking to join a camp if you are still open for members, i can help with prep and during the burn if needed.

Hi Annalynnlucy, your name has a nice flow to it :D welcome to eplaya. Let us know a little about you, what do you like, what makes you happy.
Pull up a chair, grab some popcorn and join the discussion (or not- there are a lot of lurkers), read some of the old threads to help prepare yourself for the experience of your life. Many people join camps but not everyone. If you come by yourself you will almost certainly find your neighbors are great people (or possibly assholes :o ). Camping with others is fine so is making friends on playa and enjoying your new friends.

Hi Popeye! Let's see... I'm 22 and have always been a bit of a wild child but grew up in a very conservative home and town (northern Utah haha) I love the outdoors, hiking camping and just being a nut in general. Burning man has always looked amazing but my mom would always tell me not to go - surprisingly we lived in Reno for a while and she's been around the area for burning man. I think it sounds beautiful. It sounds like the perfect place to truly find yourself and meet others who feel like you.

I'm a bit nervous that I'll end up going alone. But I'm determined.

Welcome to ePlaya. Don't be afraid to go it alone. If you really want to meet others before the burn look for local events. Finding a camp is much more likely if you get out and meet people face to face. In the San Francisco area we have building spots and large Burner groups that meet once a month or more. Where do you live?

Mod note: Moved to Theme Camps and Villages as that is a better fit than the Building forum. I encourage future posters looking for camps to post in People Seeking Camps rather than this topic.

If you still live in Utah, there's a pretty extensive burner community there. Hell, they're all over, wherever you may live. Other than knowing someone already, one of the best way to find a camp is to network with people at the local events.

Well of course you! :lol:

I was directing that at Annalynnlucy... the reply of which was 10+ days old. I really should've used quotes to avoid confusion.

Hi guy! Assuming I get a ticket this will be my third time attending. I've hitched rides with people both times but camped on my own. This year I would like to be in a camp if i can find one. I live in Los Angeles. I'm thinking it might be a good idea for people coming from far away to meet here and car pool to BM. It's a 9 hour drive. Not bad at all. If not I still would like to get in a camp.
