Howdy right back at you! There are a LOT of texans going this year! Check out the regionals page on the main site and i bet you find some fellow houstonians!

I sorta do talk like that. I love a good drawl.

Hey Puckmaster!

Make sure you & your virgins read the Survival Guide.
http://www.burningman.com/preparation/e ... index.html

And show each other your tickets (or proper ID and confirmation number for Will Call) before you leave. :)

Welcome!

I'm in San Antonio, sometimes Austin but I proudly retain my New England/East Coast/NYC diction (and sarcasm, lack of patience, pretentiousness ... )

This is my first burn as well. Like Savannah said, read the survival guide. There is a shit-ton of information here and the Burning Man website, read every word of it and you should be OK. Get everyone to read it, and give serious thought to how and what you're packing.

Remember, this is a week-long, unsupported camping trip to the high desert. Keep in mind the constant wind and the blowing dust as well.

See you there :)

Also bring your Texas shit-kicking boots for the guy on your street whom you realize is surviving solely on the kindness of others.

As a virgin, Super Evil Brian speaks well. I tend to make lists of what to take, and add and subtract as it goes along. What, 119 days till the Man burns, subtract six till the playa. And you're coming from Texas... Start now. I feel I was prepared for my first Burn. Some would say obsessed. But on the playa people come to me for things. That way the shit that happens is totally out of the blue. And shit will happen. But prepare. And Black Rock City will just be a week long camping trip.

I plan the shit out of every crazy adventure, study details and weather paterns and things. I found a long time ago, the more I prepare, the more I can just make it up as I go along and not worry.

I'm a total virgin to BRC and I'm pretty sure I'll still be wonderfully surprised when I get there.

Welcome Puck!
As previously mentioned the Survival Guide will teach you how to Survive- ePlaya will teach how to make playa life 'easier' and play more fun!

How many people are gonna be in your camp? And what vehicles do you plan to use?
Do you have a shared shade plan yet?
Are you each in charge of your own food, or one big communal kitchen?
Ditto for liquor and beer?
Cooking utensils?

These are the first things our camp figures out each year. Once these basics are squared away and everyone agrees- then the fun stuff planning gets to take over!
Why don't ya stick your head in that hole and find out? ~piehole
Plan for the worst, expect the best. Make the most out of it under any conditions. If you cannot do that you will never enjoy yourself. ~CrispyDave

At this point the count is 7 we bought a school bus that we are working on overhualing ^_^

Hehe we finally finished fighting about that last night at our burn meeting. We are setting up what amounts to a half a monkey hut off each side of the bus

We are doing the communal thing and just charging each person like 500 bucks for gas food camp structures etc.
