Why Hello There!

Postby Ozzy3421 » Tue Nov 15, 2011 10:18 am

Good Day All!

New burner here and planning on coming to the 2012 burn! Extremely excited about doing this, its been one roller coaster of a year and am looking to experience life to the fulliest and get to meet fellow burners and have a great time!

I've recently moved to the Denver, CO area and am looking to see if there are any other folks from the CO area! I will most likely be heading out Solo for my first Burning Man experience!

Nice to meet you all!

Someone will be along to post a link to the regionals soon, which i highly recommend you look into. But yes, there are is an eplayan or two from your area.

Welcome to Eplaya and we all look forward to getting to know you!

I'm at roughly, I25 and Evans Ave.
Sorta by the Dave and Busters, but not really.

Even from Denver its not Logistically easy. Its about 1200 miles each way. I recommend I25, north to I80, and west on I80 all the way to Fernley. Avoid getting off the highway in Salt Lake City, unless your familiar with the area. Someone else from there might come along and tell you its not that confusing, but last time I tried it wasn't easy.

Who all do you plan to go with in 2012?

Hi Ozzy! :)

You might have better results (socially) by attending Regionals and meeting other local Burners already highly interested in attending. Any friend you have to persuade more than the littlest amount is likely to drop out on you in May or June (bad), or require a babysitter on the playa itself (worse).

DAMN!!!
Your gonna have to register with the BMorg to bring a camp that big!!! :wink:

Savannah brings up regionals.....
Which is sorta a sore spot in CO right now since they cant find a place large enough to hold our Decompression. So there have been a few "un-official" decompression parties around.

(thanks for the salt in the wound Savannah) :wink:

There is a place here in Denver that is pretty reliable called Guild Works. I think they have a facebook, but I don't know. They tend to not post a whole lot of stuff publicly, to my knowledge.

There are also the weekly Potluck Meet'n'Greets.... Vibes has been to 1 or 2 of them. I have yet to make it to one.

Keep in touch over the next few months. As time moves along plans for camp Gnome Dome will as well, I'll keep you posted.
