Hi Totally new.....

Postby Malviris » Fri Sep 09, 2016 3:16 am

Hey my name is Marvin , i am 30 years old and i have decided to make 2017 my first burn.

I live in North Carolina so not sure if road trip there or fly there, and i have only just begun on going over the preparation videos and websites so any tips for a new burner will help immensely.

Oh i am also trying to gather a group around my area to go with me to Burning Man and they will all be new burners so hopefully i can gather 3 or 4 if not 1 or 2....

Welcome.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

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