Greetings!

Postby quondamquadrat » Mon Jun 02, 2008 2:55 pm

Going to Burning Man for the first time this year - have been poring over past years' survival guides and tips. *bouncebouncebounce* Just wanted to say hello!

I'm a compulsive planner, especially when I don't know what I'm getting myself into. My partner, who has been several times, keeps telling me not to worry/overplan/think too much, but there's so much to think about! It's exciting!

ETA - I meant to put this in the 'Hello and Welcome' topic and hit the wrong button - can it be moved?

Q :D

At least your partner has the right idea. No matter how much you plan your plans will go up in smoke once you get there. Expect nothing :) Wear great costumes :)

Wear great comfy costumes that you've always wanted to wear but didn't have a place to wear them :D

(takes a super deep breath...ok, here goes...) (Paraphrased)

Wear great costumes. Wear great comfy costumes. Wear great comfy costumes that you've always wanted to wear but didn't have a place to wear them...or don't wear anything at all...and paint your entire naked body a bright fluorescent color. But what about glitter? Glitter makes MOOP, we hates us the glitter. But above all !!! wear SUNSCREEN! And remember to drink lots of water and check/wash your feet!
