Virgin burner family planning on attending in 2019!!!

Post by Shaanee123 » Tue Nov 27, 2018 9:51 pm

Hello from Australia!

My little family and I are very excited about to undertake this big adventure.

It consists of me, Shaan, Erminio and Dan who is 4 🥰

I have been spying on burning man and it’s philosophy for years. Always with the intention to participate “one day”

We have had some very bad news regarding my partners health so it has very much kicked in the “bucket list” must do’s as it’s terminal.

So, finger crossed, we get tickets we can’t wait to meet this new family in 2019.

We are happy to participate and help out with anything basically and can get quite creative with ideas, so we hope to make your time there as memorable and special as this will be for us.

See you soon!

Hello and welcome to ePlaya. Keep your eye on the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter. It will update you on important dates for sales and such. Read everything for newbies on the Burning Man site. Preparing is half the fun. See you in the dust.

Welcome!

Normally I'd suggest coming without the child the first time to get acclimated, but given the circumstances I can certainly understand why you'd want to make it a family trip.

In addition to the resources Ratty pointed you to, you may want to consider reading up on and camping with Kidsville. It's not a place you can leave a child unattended, but it's really helpful to be among other families who are participating. If nothing else, Dan will have plenty of playmates his age.

Hello and thanks for the helpful information and I actually agree with you but we don’t have that luxury, unfortunately..

I have already looked into Kidsville and it looks like a great option for us. I’m an awesome babysitter so I can help out in that way - among others.

He’s a very well traveled 4 year old, he actually learnt to walk in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean and has done lots of off the beaten track camping, so I’m hoping he acclimate well.

Can I ask, why am I able to find tickets for sale already from commercial ticket sites...?? What is the deal there?

Hi Shaanee.
Welcome to the crazy and dusty world of Burning Man.
Tickets don't go on sale for a few months. The date is not known at this time. If you would like to PM me the link for tickets that you're looking at, I can help you figure out what's happening.
