I agree wholeheartedly!!!

PVC is oh soo sexy.. though I tend to prefer a coating of liquid latex for myself.. the PVC is for the wifey.

IMHO - I believe most litter is from poorly secured loads, crap in the back of trucks, etc.

Burning man. burning, burning, burning. Get out of my HEAD!!

Postby icehawk » Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:41 am

This will also be my first burning man. I've known about it for years, and have thought, "That would be fun." But now that I'm in Cali and within driving distance, give or take. Like you, I cannot get the idea out of my head. This is the year I make it!

Thus, I'm checking out the eplaya forums after midnight on a Sunday, again. I don't want to get too tangled up in preconceptions. But, I'm chomping at the bit for August to get here. I'm picturing my camp setup, what tools, supplies, etc to bring. How much beer will I need to last... Etc...

We'll be throwing our second annual "Katrina Survivors" party on Saturday the 25th so I can head out for Burning man on Sunday. (Hung over of course).

So, on the 29th, I'll be the fool doing a day long drunk in celebration of having my ass handed to me by momma nature.

Anyhow. You are not alone in your anxiety to break your Burning Man virginity!

I am a first time burner and all I can think about is getting on the playa. It seems to occupy my every thought. And there are so many months to go.

Am I losing it or could this be the norm? The norm? I hate the thought of being normal.

Anybody else have this same problem?


I'm with you man, this will be my first year and I'm getting antsy already with another 6 months to go. My only saving grace is the fact that I have two other warm up "festivals" planned between now and then. So I'll have a few opportunities to get my camp gear sorted out.

It appears I am not alone with my excitement. I have heard the same thing from a lot of people. I think it is the same for a lot of old timers as well.

You think thoughts of the burn are madenning now...Wait another month or two...That's when the real fun starts. The smell of Playa Dust will soon find its way back into your brain. You'll start to look at old ladies and ask where they got their hat. You'll be staring at the wierdest things, wondering what you can make out of that. And don't EEEEEVVVEEENNN get me started on those fucking dreams.

To all the virgins...Kudos for making the decision to make the journey home. You too will probably experiencing some strange emotions before you embark to oblivion. Please do not be alarmed. We are here to help and guide. You may feel a bit faint along the way. Just breath deep, take my hand, and don't look down.

Save me a dance.
BOOBIES!!!

All you succulent virgins - don't forget to give lots of love to your Greeters! They will guide you while you lose your virginity and become forever after a citizen of the most wonderful city in history.

I agree with Lorgasm - the anticipation just grows and grows every year and it can become one of the sweetest parts of who you are.
