noob from the east coast.

Post by sporky420 » Sat Jan 22, 2011 8:32 pm

Hey guys! I just wanna say hi and that I am super stoked to finally get the chance to experience the playa!!

I have attended Playa Del Fuego in Delaware twice, and plan on attending again this memorial day weekend. I have also experienced PEX SummerFest and various PEX events. So, I kind of know what I'm getting myself into, yet at the same time... I know nothing.

Right now, I am brainstorming awesome ideas for outfits and ways to spice up my camp. Researching what to bring, reading noobie tips and getting a better idea of what I just signed up for..

I can not wait to meet some of you in August. I know it's going to be the time of my life....

Love you all,
Checkerz. :)

Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me
