Hey Everyone!

Bill here from Largo Florida. I'm a reborn virgin after a 3 year hiatus ;-) The 2006 Burn was nice and mellow for an old fart like me, but I did have a few memorable experiences namely the "Men in Kilts on Ladders" structure somewhere near 4:30 and Destiny.

I'm a retired USAF Electronic Technician. While I enjoyed my time in the service, some of our views did not exactly agree mostly the ability for independent expression (tattoos, body piercings, etc...) so I retired when my 20 years came up. I don't know whether it's by design or happenstance, but I was a bit insulated while in the military. The internet opened my eyes to the multitudes of diversity and I believe Burningman really changed the way I think about people and the world in general.

So that's me in a nutshell. Glad to be aboard!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Rabbi. I have enjoyed my time on the forums, getting to interact with the veteran burners. I hope to get to know some of you someday.

Greetings!

My name is Ora (like Spanish hora without the 'h'), and I'll be enjoying my second Burning Man, first appearance in Black Rock City in 2007. This last one had me there in spirit and semi-spectating (gasp!) via webcast.

Never fear though! I bring a MASSIVE gift to you in 2007 in the form a large scale playa/theme sculpture! Sure I'm a virgin. Sure I only have two degrees in music and NOT sculpture or visual arts. If Burning Man teaches us anything, it's that you don't have to have a degree in something to be good at it.

Happy to bring you my energy, passion, and dedication in the year to come. Feel free to join me in my endeavor for an amazing sculpture project for BM 2007! Message me for more info or check out various BM tribes on the newly mutinized and reclaimed Tribe.net. I'll be posting more in the future here as well. Preference to Chicago peeps, but ANY help or advice is appreciated to help me with this sculpture.

Oh yeah, and:

- Age: 25
- Mayan Galactic Signature: Red Electric Dragon
- Zodiac: Aries, Taurus (ascendant), Virgo (moon), Aries (Mercury, Venus, and Mars)
- Gender: Optional
- Orientation: Spiritosexual
- Favorite Color: Purple
- Favorite Post-Apocalyptic Occupation: Chief of Intelligence Operations and President of The Collegium.
- Animals of note or spiritual kindred: Polar Bears, Bears, Komodo Dragons (aka oras), Deer, and Spiders
- Don't fly to or from Chicago on June 25-26, 2007. My friend with premonitions had a nitemare.
- Music: MM Comp, BA Mus, piano (Rhapsody in Blue, Rach 2 are favs) and percussion (4 mallet vibes, marimba, djembe, bass drum, gongs, and cymbals were favs), three summers of drum corps with DBQ Colts pit '99-'01.
- Unlikely life-changing book: Condensed Chaos by Phil Hine
- Best Dragon in the World: Figment
- No really, Figment's ride at Disneyworld was my first psychedelic trip (sober at age 5).

We may be closer to retirement than college but we will be attending in 2007 and cant wait. This has many of the concepts that we've been looking for all our life and cant find in the default world. We are eager to contribute and be part of this wonderful community.

Spectabillis,

i think i saw your worktruck going along i-80.

that was not me(I leave the Alturas/K-Falls way) but if they were covered in dust...Right On! maybe someone else is also using the BRC W+R name on playa. I drive a green ford ranger and pull an overloaded trailer that has my welder, generator and camp supplies. trailer looks really rag tag as I built it in highschool 17 years ago.
I was at 330 and guess with the yellow mailbox if you were out that way.
look me up next year if you need something welded or repaired. helping people out totally makes my day.

nope, wasnt you then. this was a black and white international with dualies, and nothing but a welder/gen unit on its flatbed.

and thanks for the offer, will keep it in mind if i hear of someone else needing something big - but our camp has been lucky to have someone with a mig.

Motskyroonmatick,

I'll definitely keep you in mind. I may be bringing a large scale sculpture made from steel square tubing next year. Hopefully I won't need you, because it'd be an emergency, but just in case, I'll keep you in mind!

Thanks!
Ora

spectabillis and ora,

I'm all about emergencies and special situations. I might be more mobile this year if I can find a free ride on lawn mower and a good vertical shaft electrical motor.

Going to craigs list now.

Well a mighty big fucking Welcome to you all...

All you newbies don't forget to read the survial guide that can be found on the front page of the burningman.com site, so you don't get caught with your panties down. search around the forum here, and usually you can find all of your questions answered by our resident experts and idiot sevants, if not ask anyway and pay no attention to the old crusty farts who have heard the same question a thousand times, usually asked by someone who didn't bother to search ( see "Search" at the top of this page). Well anyhoo...


WELCOME HOME!




you're bestest pal,

hi everyone :-) 2006 was my first burn after so many years of wanting to go and letting things get in the way of making it happen. I had such an incredible, amazing time and I am so excited about next year already :-D

Greetings from Djibouti. I will be a BM virgin in 2007 (would have been this year but I was in this other desert instead). Live in Tampa Florida; presently I am owned by Uncle Sam but soon I will be free and blissfully unemployed (at least until the bliss fades) and attempting to make money by selling words.
It's been almost ten years since I first heard of BM through the Playa Chicken's website when I needed pictures of chickens for a ceramics project in college (the World Famous Chicken Teapot). God only knows why I haven't made it before now.

My name is KokoPelli.
I live and work in the bay area.
BM 2005 was my first burn and I plan to attend all of them from now on.
I loved the camps and the wild night life. But mostly talking to nice people.
Next year I plan to organize a theme camp around my name, KokoPelli.

Hello

Post by Sync » Wed Oct 11, 2006 8:10 pm

Hi, Sync here. Was at BM in 04 and 05, and found a resonance with the saying “welcome home”. I’m 49, no idea how that happened, have two kids, some idea how that happened, and am counting the days until 07. In 05 I camped next to some fire arts performers and got hooked on the idea of being one at the next BM. Been working on it for more than a year now, and figure I’ll have a performance piece to share by 07. My dream is to hook up with a bunch of other fire arts performers and roam around meeting people, performing for them and partying with the fire spinning folks. Also building a tiny art car project to help with my other great BM ambition, see every street on the playa. Any information on fire-minded folks would be appreciated

Sup everyone!!! Im matt, Im here in search of cultural enlightenment. Im in the recording industry so life can get stressfull. So I once in a while I climb out of me rabbit hole and try to free my mind. I belive this is imperative to our surrvival, or we'll all end up in a loney bin. Which sometimes seems rather inviting :wink: Good to be on board here, looking forward to many great conversations with you all, and ones that are not so great so long as we connect.
