Canadian virgin burner

Post by Canadiantrance » Fri Jul 12, 2013 6:22 pm

Hey everyone. New to the site and looking to meet some new people. I was actually planning to go to shambhala this year and a friend talked me into scrapping that idea and attending the burn instead, heading up in a bus of people I haven't met but I'm sure they are awesome.

My friend ended up having financial problems lately and won't be joining me now so feeling kinda nervous about not having that buddy to experience everything with and show me the ropes but I'm keeping prime spirits and hoping for the best! It's quite a long drive, 36 hours, shall be worth :) nice to meet everyone here, if you want to get in touch and get to know each other befofe the burn you can add my Facebook.

Hi Jamie! :D

My first year I headed down to the burn in a caravan of 19 other folks among whom I was only half-acquainted with one (a co-worker). It was scary for me too, but it worked out. You're going to meet tons of people, and most of them are pretty excited just to be there. :)

If you're shy in addition to being nervous, check out this thread:

My first year I didn't know any Burners. I was going to travel alone, ended up driving two others with me. Met more in a camp. Met more all over the place. Met more the following years. Oh, God...what have I done?
