Hello from Edinburgh, Scotland!

Postby SirPhreak » Tue Jan 15, 2013 2:58 pm

Hey guys, I'm Matt.

Hopefully a few of us shall be heading to Burning Man this year from Scotland! Some of us for the first time, some second timers.
Thought I'd get myself on ePlaya so I can get more familiar with some people, and to do a hell of a lot more reading... you can never know too much!

Never have a clue for what to write for these things, so I'll leave it at that :) .

Hi Matt! :D

So, are you a first-timer or a second-timer?

What do you for work--or fun?

Thanks Savannah!
Currently unemployed, I lost my job recently, but onwards and upwards eh? :D
It'll be my first time!

Hey Ed! I just read your thread, it's your first time too?
Would be good to chat to someone else who's (relatively) closer to home and who's a newbie!

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

Hi Matt, you won't regret deciding to come, except perhaps that it will become the only holiday you take from now on. BM is a great place full of wonderful people.

Hi Matt, good to see a few folk from Edinburgh on here, originally I'm from nearby - Tranent.
First year for me too, looks like fun, but we Scots may have a job getting used to the weather ;)
