virgin alert

Postby celeste » Mon May 05, 2008 10:56 pm

Hello everyone, I just thought I should introduce myself. I've known about BM as long as I can remember but my parents could never take me because they are both teachers and BM is the same week that they start school. This year I was able to find a camp I can go with and I'm old enough that my parents are willing to let me go (I'm 17). I'm building a mutant vehical and I'm really looking forward to being on the playa, burning. If anyone has any tips for the mutant vehical or just surviving in general, they would be quite welcome. I've read the survival guid and I've been lurking on eplaya for a while, but I just got an account recently, so, here I am. :D

Be sure to get something in writing from your parents.

Get comfortable dust goggles.
If you want to use the vehicle at night, be sure to get the lighting right.

It would be a shame if I had to resort to self-deception to preserve my faith in objective reality.

If you want help with your vehicle, you may want to tell us more about it. What was the original vehicle that you're building it from? What is your theme? How far along are you?
