The Man Burns in 26 Days!!

Hey, I was just wondering how people are going to Burning Man? What are your plans for going, or who are you going with? How many people are going with big groups? How important is community to you at Black Rock City? Is anyone going alone? Camping alone?

I still haven't completely figured out who I'm going with and exactly what I'm doing, so hearing what others are doing might help me out. I'd like to be part of a larger camp, though at this point it doesn't seem likely it will happen. Right now my options seem to be camping with my ex boyfried which may be emotionally difficult or camping with my cousin and her friend who have very different lifestyles and interests from me. Or I could go by myself, but Burning Man is about community and so going alone I may feel less part of a community.

Any suggestions?

This will be my third burn, and I am so excited to go home to the playa!!!!

Hope everyone has an amazing and safe trip.

And maybe I'll see you in Black Rock City!

Someone else posted this - we need to organize a LJ camp!
I think it's an awesome idea!
oooh going with the ex sounds like a really bad idea. especially for that long of a period. Ive gone with big groups and with just another person. I personally liked going alone because I always meet more people. when your with a huge group its a little intimidating for outsiders to work their way in. thats just my personal preference, you could be totally different. theirs really pluses and minuses to both experiences. this will be my 7 th year....cant wait! have a great trip!
This will be my third burn. I'm going up by myself, but camping at one of the EMS bases with an old friend. He's one of the medic captains and basically the only person I will know on the playa.

Having a big camp isn't all that important to me. I enjoy being part of the uber-community and experiencing it all on that level. In years past, the group I was with has taken in solo campers and made them part of our camp, so there is always that kind of option.

That's the nice thing up there. Most people are friendly and accepting. I found that when I camped with a group the first year, I stayed with them. Year two, I was also pretty much solo so I went out on my own and got much more out of it.
