Human & Snake go to Burning Man for the first time!

Post by brewsty39 » Tue Feb 14, 2017 6:18 am

Hello there,

My toy snake Wendy and I are going to attend Burning Man for this first time this year, and thought it would be fun to join a theme camp, chip in with some graft and skills, and have a wonderful ol' time.

I'm a 26 year old dude from the UK, and will be doing some backpacking around Canada and the US in and around this time, and will also be attending the Oregon Eclipse. My skills are quite varied, and I'm open-minded about what I will be doing when it comes down to chipping in and grafting. I've attended a load of festivals all over the world, and pumped about attending a burn for the first time, as I respect and love the core principals and beliefs that are put into place at burn events.

Anyone out there with a theme camp that has space from a cool cat and his snake, hit a brother up!

Love & Light

Narmy

Welcome!

Browse through the theme camp listings, there will be more and more as the applications go in, tickets are purchased, and plans finalized.

You will need to find a sitter for your scaly friend, pets are not allowed at Burning Man. The environment is simply too much of everything for even quiet small non-humans.

Yeah, that's a no-go. You can't bring any kind of pets. And if you think you can do it anyway, you'll be in for a bad time when you get ejected from the event, which WILL happen.
Particularly if I see it. Leave the fucking snake at home.

Well goddamm it does... somehow I read that as "pet" snake. If it's a TOY snake, then... you're a little weird for discussing the thing like it's your companion, but weirdness makes Burning Man happen.

consider, Cap'n, the snake, may not be a "snake" and it may well be his companion......

I have no idea if it's 'legal', but I've seen pet snakes out there almost every year. :shock:

I bring my pet mice every year. They camp in my stuff all year in the hut. When I get there they run free and return when it's time to leave.

Never claimed or even intimated that it had anything to do with my anatomy.
