I realized that I never formally introduced myself to the forums. I go by "Rocket," I'm 21, a college student, and live in southwest michigan. I'm more than enthusiastic about going to BM. In fact, it's the fulfillment of a dream. I first heard about it when I was maybe eight or nine, and since then I've wanted to attend. A few days after ordering my ticket, I met with Robotland (PlanetSteve) for a couple of beers. If he's any representation of the people I'm going to meet, I think my world is going to be turned upside down, and I couldn't be more excited. See you on the playa.
I am the people your parents warned you about.

Welcome Rocket,... don’t judge us all by Roboland, he’s atypical just like the rest of us,... :D

Welcome Home.
It's true, they just sort of appear one day. I tried for a long time to make people call me "Firey-X-Plode-o-Puss". It just wouldn't stick.

Hi from Metro Detroit

Me and my guy are finally going to make the trip out to the playa this year, as I've been saying "someday" for the past ten or twelve years. I'm really, really excited. I'm going to grab our tickets with my next paycheck. Wheee!!!

I am a little nervewracked about how I can contribute. I've toyed with a number of ideas, most of which seem ultra-lame. I might just make big pots of matzo ball soup every night or two and dispense it to whoever wants some, as the gigantic working rubik's cube I was thinking of has turned out to be way too ambitious (and has probably already been done!). I'm also a wee bit scared of having to, for maybe the first time in my life, really be part of a community. My partner and I are both fairly shy people, and I know we'll need to step out of our insular little bubble in order to fully experience BM.

Sprite,

Welcome home! :D Don't sweat it. Come on into the bar (or bar volumre 2) and hang out. visit the 2007 themes. Lots of interesting peeps here. Mostly just have fun. Don't worry about being shy. Everyone is accepted here. So step out of the box and set fire to it! Do not worry too much about contributing right away. As you wander around the board you will find something. Or something will find you. The first step of participation is to show up. But in order to participate and contribute you need to take another step... and anotherand another... ! So post something somewhere. Again and again. See you in the Bar. :D

There was a 'Fuck C-mpbells Eat Real Soup' Camp at 7:30 and Fetish.
2005 was a dry year and the soup was incredible.
Only flashy thing was the elwire cardboard sign.
The elwire said 'Soups _on_/Soups Gone
It really drove it home that it's about the experience, not the glam.
The italian wedding soup was the most popular.

There's a picture on marc.merlins.org
The soup was thick enough to stand a spoon up in.
All soup since has been ruined for me.

PineMom, I'm from metro Detroit. At the moment, the two of us are planning on camping on our own, but I'm hoping that over the next few months, we'll find our way into a larger camp. I know there's a lively burner community around here, and I plan on making it to an event sometime soon.

I'm Rachelle from Los Angeles, I believe I will be at BM this year...my first year. I am an ex-raver from back in the day and i still love dancing and I still love house music.
I can't believe I have never been to BM, but i hope to make it this year. I am getting too old to not have checked it out :)

Ivy, i see you are from LB!

Hey Little Monster. In my opinion you're never too old to go to Burning Man. Have fun.

HEY! Little Monster, there is no such thing as being too old to go to Burning Man! Heck, last year was my first year, and I was 43. Sheesh!

Maybe I should kidnap my 101 year old grandfather and take him... hmmm.

Let me clarify

Post by little monster » Wed Feb 21, 2007 12:41 pm

I don't want to be any older before I experience my first BM. I was usually one of the oldest "ravers" at parties when in my last couple years of that. I know I am not too old and that I would never be too old...I just mean I want to go before I am any older.

Try one of the "Bar" threads down in the Open Discussion area. They should have water, or something more potent. :wink:

Firenze is beautiful.
I never got to see enough of it.

I think I had strega over ice cream
and espresso there.
Perfect weather too.
I still have some gilded leather from the visit.

Hi

Hi my name is Bonnie and my friend Jenina and I are planning on going to Burning Man for the first time this year! BMVirgins! I am a Pagan and was looking up online my favorite Folklore Entity, the Green Man. I have him on my wall, he's just such a comfort. That's when I came across the theme for thsi year's Burning Man. I had read about the Gathering when I was about 19 and a lot wilder, out of a Rolling Stone Mag I do believe. Sfter reading this article, I weas just enthralled with the intricacies of the gathering. Never thought I'd go, but now that I live in Colorado, Its just one state over! I'm looking to make friends! I don't understand the village and the whole placement of camps, I would like some help understanding that. I have other questions too, like, I have a minivan. Can I park it on the PLaya? I dunno much, but you seasoned veterans can help, I know!
Get back to me! :o
I'm Bm-curious.
