Bakersfield, Ridgecrest, Kern River?

Postby walkingman » Tue Oct 04, 2011 9:47 am

Hello

I live in remote Kernville, California, in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Attended Burning Man 2010 and 2011.

Looking to connect with local Burners about Decompression activities, year around and at Burning Man 2012 who live in the Bakersfield, Ridgecrest, Kern River areas.

Wow! Took a look at the map and you are just a teensy bit off the beaten path. (Must be nice sometimes!)

You've probably already seen the main site's CA Regional page:
http://regionals.burningman.com/us_ca.html

For large or well-established events you might have to travel. Or start a Bakersfield chapter. Sorry about that. :)

Welcome to the board . . .

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

Thank you all for your support and suggestions. I'm signed up to get Las Vegas and LA regional group emails. I want to keep trying to contact Burners in this area.

Welcome.
