first time poster and first time burner

Postby jadeddog » Mon Apr 30, 2012 11:31 am

le woot, i managed to get tix and will be there this year... came on this forum as i find foruims to be the best source of info on pretty much everything in the world, as you get to talk to "experts" on the subject matter

i'm from saskatchewan, canada and am travelling with some folks who went to their first burn last year

question about these boards, that the FAQ didn't seem to answer... i'm only able to post this topic, and can't create new questions in any of the other forums... what up with that?

2) very new to this "internet thing"

Welcome to eplaya.

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