JoLo-- Remember, you're only a virgin once! Enjoy the sublime anticipation of your first Burn. "Relax" and enjoy it. "See ya on the Playa!"
DVD Burner you make a good point, that there can be Art in Sock puppetry, or as Zepher pointed out, not all socks are bad--it's in the use.
Honey: you ever been to the HS in Fish Lake Valley off 6 West near Tonopah? Great place to stop for a day (and night, or two...) to wash off the Playa crud (there's a hot shower rigged) and soak in HOT water, no shade on site but a GREAT place to decompress... I too am a H.S. junky!
I thought "socks" and "plonking" were things and acts shared by concenting adults, but I'm sure there's a thread for that as well!
Has anyone thought about WHAT the high levels of arsenic found just South of BR or radioactive tailings from the copper mines might be contributing to the ground water we spray to keep the dust down? -POL
