First Timer Just Stopping By To Say Howdy

Postby Fennel » Tue Apr 01, 2014 5:27 pm

Howdy, all. I'm Kent.
For the past 17 years, I've lived, worked and made art in Los Angeles. But just two weeks ago I moved back to my home state of Oklahoma while I spend a few months preparing to move to Italy for a couple years. Just before I'm scheduled to leave, however, there is The Burn.
Since 2000, I have tried and failed three separate times to make it to Burning Man, but 2014 is looking to finally be my year. I'm beside myself with excited anticipation, and I cannot wait.
Between the extensive research I've already done regarding preparation and the veteran troupe I'll be camping with, this very well may be my only post. My goal is to never ask a question that has already been answered, and it appears every question has already been answered...
And finally - a year ago while attending a festival with the same group of veteran burners mentioned above, an 8 year old girl (the daughter of one of my camp-mates) looked at me and declared my name was Fennel. Before I could really process what was going on, everyone started congratulating me for my first Playa name. I decided to run with it, and so hence the user name I chose when registering.
Very excited for my maiden voyage into this otherworldly experience, and equally excited to meet as many of you as I can face to face in Black Rock City!

Nice story.

Go ahead. Ask a question that has been answered. Being hazed is all part of the experience here on eplaya.
