cancer sucks and im sorry that youre going through this.

perhaps you can apply for a low income ticket, idont believe you actually have to fork over the money until you get to the event. then you will perhaps have time to save up for that. the ticket is really a small part of the total costs though. expenses=travel, food, shelter, water, sunscreen, lights, etc.

where would you be coming from? how will you get here, is your vehicle sound, money for gas.
Do you have camping gear already or will you need to purchase stuff. food for the week will cost money.

look for the low income ticket program on the burningman web page under tickets
best wishes to you

fuck cancer
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Welcome Havoc. I'm sorry to hear about all your misfortune. I'm feeling confident that you'll beat that cancer--and quickly.
Everything that lucky asked and said is appropriate. I especially want to know where are you from?
It will take some research and effort on your part to make it to the desert, but it will all be worthwhile for you.
Best wishes to you and I hope to see you in the dust in the near future.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
