Hey there, welcome to eplaya!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

You are flying in from a far off land, if you need help be sure to ask, start additional thread(s) if you need to, everyone will do their best to answer questions for you.

The Q&A tips and Share Resources are good places to begin.

I am guessing you have planned a long visit to the USA? If so, you might want to stretch your burning man experience and consider staying extra days...Monday and Tuesday, to help strike camp and MOOP. I did this and felt it was a bonus, not drudgery, truly interesting things still go on during those extra two days.... and of course, everyone appreciates the extra help.

One of the things I liked best during the extra couple of days was watching the bon fire on the man burn site grow and grow and grow every evening, more and more lumber would pile up and feed the bon fire, BIGGEST! BRIGHTEST! BON ~FIRE I think I've ever seen! EPIC!! Everyone can chuck wood in, we threw some of ours in too, it was fun!! Maybe have someone hold onto you/your shirt/something attached to your body at first, until you get the hang of wood's a BIG, HOT FIRE!! Try NOT to get TOO carried away...especially if you're tired, hungover etc

~Useful lumber is donaed to Habitat for Humanity, all other was BURNED!!!!

Early entry is another great experience, but I could'nt fit it into my schedule......perhaps someone else can describe and explain what that's about better than I can...if interested ask here on your intro thread, ok?

~Have a safe trip and enjoy
I'm the MAN in a truck, burner who is stuck, you're in luck! I'll whip out my BIG tow chain and not charge you, not even one lousy buck!

hey :) thanks everybody :)

i'm actually just coming over for burning man, meeting up with friends who now live all over the world. i'm quite lucky because i work for an airline so my flight will be free... will only have about 10-12 days. including two 30 hour flights!
but hopefully it won't be my last visit to the us :D
