Virgin Burner looking for Sober Burners to camp with

Post by Chicago_Cop » Thu Apr 17, 2014 2:59 pm


This will be my first time at Burning Man and I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. So, I would like to hook up with some other sober burners and camp in their area if at all possible.

If any of you know anyone associated with Camp Anonymous or any other sober camp please contact me so that we can hook up ahead of time.

First hit when Googling "Burning Man anonymous camp:" ... sober.html

For the sake of keeping yourself alive in a high desert for a week (so we don't have to clean up your dead body), please do not arrive at Burning Man itself having "absolutely no idea" what you're doing. Burners are generally cool folks, but nobody wants to invite into their camp somebody who hasn't put in the effort to prepare themselves.

Read the First Timers' Guide. Read the Survival Guide.

Read them again.

Good luck.

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

She's right. :D And welcome!

After you've read the all-important Survival Guide, fall down the ePlaya rabbit hole. A new subject here is extremely hard to find.

If you don't see what you're looking for, use Search or Google goggles eplaya or realistic food eplaya or house rules for RVs eplaya or diabetes eplaya (and so on) and you'll be able to find the stuff you want.

If you get really, really stuck, tell us what you've tried first in your mission to be self-reliant, and we'll mostly likely geek out with you.

yes read everything you can and don't be afraid to camp by yourself. I enjoyed having my own camp.
