Planning on 2017

Postby Grumpy Otter » Tue Oct 25, 2016 2:59 pm

My daughter and I plan to go next year. My niece went this year and we are excited to join her and the friends she made. Prior to her going I had not paid much attention to BM and was amazed at the amount of art and community that is BM. Now I am consumed with planning and researching for our first burn.

Hi, welcome here. It's nice to see people traveling with kids. I'd like to go there with my baby but she still 2 years.
Enjoy!

Thank you for the welcome. In my case, my "kid" is 41, so it is more of a cooperative, than parent/child. Along with her cousin - my niece - we are all friends as well as family.

Welcome.

I put my letter saying my mammogram was clean into the Temple in 2005, after having breast cancer in 2004. Very freeing. There are a lot of survivors participating out there!

Planning is becoming actuality! We have our tickets and can shift into high gear on assembling everything we will need. My daughter and I for our first Burn and my niece for her 2nd.

Grumpy,

Bring the whole clan by to visit The Wanderers. We're usually around 3:30 and G. Serving hot dogs and Gin & Tonic every day at about 4:00 for hungry playa wanderers.
