We joined a theme camp and were at 3&E. It was a great time. We brought too much food and water and not enough costumes.
Thats Crazy! 2009 was our first year we ended up at 3:30&E! We camped with our very experienced buddies 'baby batter camp' Had like 3 carports and played a bit of music during the day. They did a hell of a job preparing us for the burn.
We brought way too much booze, and not enough beer. We had a shit tone of water and just the right amount of food.

This year weâ€™re both looking forward and are well prepared. We have however sworn off traveling to BM with others. Babysitting someone for days on end really can be somewhat distracting. Thereâ€™s plenty of virgins around without us bringing one of our very own.
Thats interesting. Me and my GF were newbs in 2009, I brought my sister and my best friend Panda in 2010. This year the 4 of us are bring 8 newbs with us. I plan to bring newbs every year until all my friends and family have had a chance to see how amazing BRC really is.
Though, I do a hell of a job making sure my birgins are very well prepared.
A prepared newb is great, an unprepared newb is a pain in everyone's ass!
I kinda feel like its every burners job to bring prepared newbs, and if you hear of someone that is going that is unprepared, try to help them get ready or tell them to stay their lazy ass at home.
