New from the PNW - 1st Time to Burn

Post by bxd1928 » Thu Jan 30, 2020 11:54 am

Greetings and salutations fellow virgins and veteran burners alike.

I should be attending the Burn for 2020 on a +one Ticket. I am so excited to finally get the experience and participate this year. Its been a dream of mine for many, many years and I am finally able to make this happen. Burners and the "the burner community" are most amazing people I have ever encountered.

Hey there, welcome to ePlaya!

Be sure to stop by the ePlaya Meet-n-Greet on Wednesday at 6:00PM and meet all of the ePlayans you may have befriended here. Further details on this year's location will be posted as it gets closer to the burn.

If you already have an experienced burner friend introducing you all the better.

There is also a "Burning Man Regional" to meet new burners in your town, coordinate on supplies, and even share a ride. It sounds like you are already connected to them!

Eplaya has a huge library of helpful information. It's better to use google to search it - site:epleye.burningman.org search terms.

If you are a costumer, it's never too early to work on that!

Yes! I have already been to a regional/decompression burn. The community is awesome and I have made friends with many.

That is what I have heard it called, but I may have the term or heard it wrong. When someone works or gifts their service to the Org & Community, they get their own 2 tickets, and +One (or one additional ticket offered at the main sale price? *shrug* Someone help correct me what the right name is for that extra slot?

People who volunteer may get a discounted or no charge ticket the year following volunteering. It's usually just a single ticket that's offered. They may also have access to DGS tickets, which gives them a chance to purchase tickets and a vehicle pass.
