New Burner From the 2nd Coldest City in the World, Canada

Post by CattiBrie » Wed Aug 18, 2010 3:17 pm

Hey Folks!

This will be my first year attending Burning Man, and it was decided on a bit of a whim. I will be going with a few seasoned burners, but any advice you could offer is appreciated.

I would love to hear about past experiences.

Cheers!
Maggie

I wrote this after my first year. Funny to go back ... some changes, some stays the same.

Hey CattiBri,

Good to see another Manitoban going down to the Playa for the first time! I'll be camping in the Black Rock Fun Jet Camp at 8:30 and the Esplanade. Look me up!

Advice?
Wear down.
Do you know Feathered Friends?
Great stuff.

Really second coldest?
I would have thought a few russian cities would have that?
Is Manitoba really that cold?

Are you in Thompson?
Sounds good right now.

Okay, wear fur over down.
