Born Again Virgin!!

Post by NateyPi » Thu Aug 16, 2018 8:21 pm

Hey All,

This is my second time coming to Burning Man. My first time was in 2011 and I tagged along with 2 friends who pretty much brought everything I needed (tent, sleeping bed, etc). We also stayed with a camp (really nice people who participate hard) and everything was planned and prepared by the camp. These campers worked throughout the year to be ready and I just showed up on Thur morning and left on Sun morning. I had a great time because, well burning man, but felt like a bit of a tourist.
So this year, I'm coming with a friend of mine who's flying in from Ireland and I thought 'radical self-reliance', we're going solo. We're bringing yurts, a carport, and non-perishable food and we're going to wing it. At first this seemed exhilarating but the closer I get to burning man (I'm starting to drive from Chicago next Wednesday) the more anxiety is boiling to the surface. So most of my questions on the forums over the next couple days will just be to make sure the things I think I've pinned down are really pinned down. Have Fun on the Playa!!

Welcome back Natey,

You are not born again virgin, you are sparkle pony reborn into veteran burner. :)

Looks like you have it down and need a wubby.

I can hug you and hold you and call you George all the way from the mid west to Nevada.

Ask away.

Aw, you'll be fine, Natey! Sounds like you've done a lot of work & thinking already.

I still get The Anxieties every time, and it's been years & years now for me. It's pretty normal. :mrgreen:

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