Hi Dan,

The easiest way is to join a group of UK or Euro burners and go with them. The trouble isn't getting there, just fly to SF or Reno, its getting all the stuff you need once you land. If you are going as a virgin solo, you will need to be very organised. Bring as much as you can from the UK. You will prob need a car, but a ride share is possible from reno.
It is dangerous to simply arrive, buy all new (and untested) stuff, and head out.
Another option is to arrive a few weeks early to get your shit sorted. Join a camp and help them prepare.
Its quite stressfull but its worth it.

Use the board's search function to find the International Black Rock City Burner Hostel, it's run by hageymon. He also has a website and you can enlist his help, join his camp and learn a lot. But be good to him. He's a great guy who gives a lot and gets burned now and then. You don't exploit precious resources, so give some back to him.

Also, there's a regionals forum on this board, find Euro threads or start one of your own. But read a few first so you're not starting the 37th thread on one subject. It's so untidy.
