Hey everyone! I'm Liz; I'm a Burner virgin. I am in the beginning stage of making plans for my first burn. 2020 will be my best year yet! I'm looking forward to the experience.

Welcome Liz!

Read the survival guide here and even though it's the 2019 version, it contains lots of valuable information. Then read the 2020 version when it comes out.

If you have never been camping before, you should do a couple short practice runs before coming out for a week on the Playa. The conditions can be pretty harsh at times not to mention the absolute sensory overload at all times. You should be able to make yourself a comfortable camp to come home to.

Hey there, welcome to ePlaya!
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Some may say if you post your hometown, experienced burners nearby may become allies, even lifelong friends.
