Two Aussie Newbies coming for our first Burn

Post by vixstarno1 » Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:37 am

Hi fellow Burners,
My friend, Jade and myself are coming over for our first burn and we can hardly contain our excitement!
We have a 12 seater RV which we are happy to offer seats in. We will be driving form San Fran.
Any suggestions on cool camps from previous burners would be greatly appreciated :-)

Welcome Aboard.

Do tell us a bit about yourselves, as there must me more to you than being Aussies and having a van!

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

Depends how hardy you are. Your entire being will become dust and so will the inside of your tent. You probably won't have much shade. If that's all right, then go for it. If not, you could always try for a camp. In a camp you are likely to have access to a shower, basic kitchen facilities and usually shade. You will also be expected to contribute to the camp. It all depends what you are looking for.

Baby wipes for cleaning up and you can find shade in center camp and at the open spaces at theme camps.

Iv researched the logistics and think it may be worth renting a van/caddy and driving in. Really it's the best way in terms of having a home base to lock ur stuff in plus I'll be purchasing a bike when I land in the states and don't wanna haul it around on the burner express. Is it harder to register with a camp if I also have a vehicle? Do most camps allow parking, or do they prefer vehicles with passes be left in a designated parking zone outside of the camp?

Parking at camps will depend on their size and layout. Some allow camping next to your vehicle, some allow it at the back of their space, others require you to park farther out. We park in our camp, within a village. If you rent a vehicle, you will have enough of a base camp you will not need to join a theme camp. Just because a shower is promised does not mean a shower is available when you need or want it, so examine why you want to join a camp, what they will require of you other than dues, and how much you feel you can just handle it.
