first timer from winningpeg, canada

Postby loprogression » Thu Jan 19, 2012 8:04 am

That is to say .... this will be my first time. I hope nobody goes easy on me. :p

My name is Chris. I'm from Canada. Today's wind chill of -40 Celsius/-40 F (-27c without) makes me anticipate BM all the more.

I've been reading up on Burning Man for years, watching youtube videos, and looking at all my friend's BM pics and being all super jelly about it. After delays each year that prevent me from going, this year will be the year. It's gonna be ultra-rad.

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

That's still 80 degrees warmer than what he's experiencing today. Even the coldest temps at BRC would be a veritable heat wave by comparison.

The desert will suck your very soul from you. And you will be back.

haha, very true.

I know enough to pack a winter jacket. Some fests in Canada at higher altitudes can get pretty damn cold at night in the summer too.

Welcome to eplaya!

You're going to love the weather!
Right now, it sounds like it will be nice and warm, but when your there you'll think "Dog Damn its Hot!"
But after a day or two, you'll realize that in some weird way the misery of the heat brings people closer together.
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

Hi Chris! Welcome to the board. If you know to bring a warm jacket, you're already miles ahead of many a virgin. :D

Vancouver has lots of regular burners, I've been many time.

just remember life's all about the journey, not the destination.
