Linzie,

Hi there, :D

BTW, IMO, I kind of think that every year is or should be like everyone’s “first timeâ€

Hello Linzie! 07' was my fifth time out, and I always held my 1st time as a groundbreaker. But this year was really deep---dare I say it blew my first year out the water! I can't wait til' this Summer. Get prepared, get situated, and get excited :D

let me apologize first off to all the other readers who will without doubt wince at the following response.


So, Shane, the thing you need to do is get your Uncle to buy the ticket for you.

just wondering, is he your Uncle or your "Uncle"......

I didn't see anything on the ticket page that says you can't buy a ticket if you're under 18. You simply can't attend the event without adult supervision if you're under 18. Start mowing them lawns!

Days left to go? Hmmm, lets see...I start daydreaming about now (4 months out) start planning at 90 days, start creating stuff at 60, become enlightened at 30, and become c o n s u m e d at 1 week out :D Last year, we didn't plan or start aquiring gear until 1 1/2 weeks away, but seemed like we got everything together better than in years past

Hello fellow 1st time burner!! Gage & dG here!! We're coming from the Central California area, and just starting to make friends, deciding on a possible theme camp to call home, and discussing RV or No RV...

Just saying hi. :D

But question: What's your reason(s) for making the trek this year?

In 06 it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, the people are fantastic, if I didnt have this to put all of my spare energy into I fear what would happen ;) and really what else are you going to do with your vacation time and extra money.

I fear that I don't know how to use proper puncuation. ;) It should have been if I didn't have this to put all of my spare energy into, I fear what would happen.

Meaning my sanity would finally leave me and I would become just another drone or I would snap and stab someone through the eye with a pen.

Thata girl, let it all out!

Some guy was talking to me the other day and my inner voice was screaming at him to stop. I pictured throwing my 200 degree tea in his face, or biting his nose, or flipping over the table. I am so looking forward to BM. 08'
