Agreed. If you bring 20 small hand sanitizers, for example, you might end up giving away only 2 or 3 (unless you set out a bin or something, which is no fun). Some things are hard to offer spontaneously.VultureChow wrote:Those sound fine, but don't go nuts with the amounts. As a virgin, you nailed your biggest gift. Participation. The best gift you can give is to not be too big a burden. I only qualify that because no matter what, except in the super rare case of the stealth virgin, you will absolutely need help. I thought I was prepared last year, and still needed a lot of help. Volunteer, offer drinks and food and have a good time. In many cases your delight and awe will be the best gift you can give some of the more experienced burners.Earthwalker wrote:(Burgin here)
Just curious if these are stupid ideas:
-small sanitizer bottles
-travel size mouthwash (only if I'm about to kiss them)
Sound reasonable? I just want to ensure I'm contributing. I will be in a camp of awesome people who were kind enough to allow me to join them, even though we've never met in person. My biggest "gift" will be to be an awesome campmate (respectful, help cook, help clean, don't be an ass, etc.). I also plan on doing anything I can to help people who are lost, too drunk, just looking for a friend/companion to walk around with, etc.
Food and drink, on the other hand, is not hard to offer at all. Yelling at passersby to come in for a snack is a time-honored practice.
