Hi, I'm new here. I plan on going to the 2020 Burning Man and need all the help/advice I can get on being part of your airstream campsite. Tickets all of that. We are looking at a 1960 Bambi to buy and bring her with us 🙂

Thank you!! Nice to meet you all!
Chiwan

Welcome Chiwan. Go to the Burning Man web site and read everything about the event especially all the prep info. Tickets for Burning Man 2020 will go on sale sometime in the spring of 2020. We will start a new planning thread after the first of the year. Our camp is open to everyone and no dues are required but you do need to get your own ticket(s) and vehicle pass.

Thank you one and all for making my virgin burn a great memory.
Made it home safely yesterday. Mother Nature helped clean the truck and trailer with thundershowers. My great husband is helping clean out the back of the truck. He was astounded at the amount of dust.
A locksmith came out this morning to open the Tonneau cover. Keys were in the backpack just where I thought they would be. Learning experience for sure.
Best news, after providing a run down of events looks like he is interested in attending in a couple of years.

Been watching burners float thru Carson City, some overwhelming my park with a dump service/ 10 people using the showers (-), to one leaving extra gatorade & water (+).
The nite before opening, we had some staying over due to the traffic clogs, and moto racers from across the street. A different feel from the campers partying on this Sat nite.

From what I watched on playa action, I never saw center camp.
Did they move it? Was it the same center camp as built, say two years ago?
Some mention that it was placed deeper into the center camp circle, less prominent.

I finally got home last night, after a long and winding trip back to Oklahoma. I carried a couple of rideshares (Mack the Aussie, and Merlin the Seeker) as far as Avon Colorado, then was on my own for the rest of the trip. Merlin asked what this year's Burn was about for me, and after reflecting a bit, I had to say that it was about love. Love for my campmates - I had such a great Burn this year. It is amazing how much feeling you can harbor for folks that you see for only one week at a time, once a year. Jillybean says it is about the shared hardship and communal living - relying upon each other. I think that it also has something to do with a group of folks who embrace the 10 principles together. So much fun to see Funkee and JuJu again after their absence last year. The same for Bam and Ron. We missed you Bill and Annie, Dr. Quark, Archie, Crash, GiGi and Beekeeper, Billie and Frank, Cosmic and Spitfire!

I thought that the heart of the camp would be missing without GiGi, Rex and Tanya, but the constancy of Perry, Michel, Moondog and Ron, Bam & Ron added to the fabulous way that second year Airstreameri (Tango and Conroy, Astro, LeLoo, Dino & Rykin along with Cat-tastic, Celebrian and Arwen) stepped up to fill that void made our camp great again.

We had some great virgins this year too: Bubbly (Beverly), Indiana Jane (Robyn) and the 3 british boys Jamie (Jason) and Charlie (DJ Argonaut) + Ryan (DJ Whatnot).

It was great to have Twig for a little longer this year, and wonderful to have Squeeze for a few days (come longer next year!).

What an honor to walk the shiny penny shift with Ranger Falcon One (aka Astro, aka Jon) - Oh the stories we have to tell!

Well - back to wiping off dust for now. Miss you all already!

Well said Obi. I definitely didn’t get quite enough Playa love, art, and community to last until next year. Maybe we can plan a few regional rallies/camping trips/get togethers during the year to catch up and plan for the next Burn.

Playa Postcard!

Hello all,

Thanks so much for our very thoughtful playa postcard! Me & Jethro were thrilled to discover in it the mail. It arrived quickly and is now prominently displayed in our kitchen where I am certain it will help sell our house with its playa magic! I remember Obi leading us all in 2018 in sending cards to our missing members, what a lovely camp tradition. <3

So happy you all had another amazing year, me & BeeKeeper were stalking you on the live cam and texting back and forth about what we saw. Jean/Bubbles saw the VVV! A vicarious burn is better than no burn at all!

MoonDog shared a few photos of the dome and the postcard tent and wow, it all looked fantastic! Can't wait to see more! Missed you all and hope to be back next year. Not sure how that will go with everything up in the air but are strategizing and considering different creative options.

Big thanks to Jon & Olka for transporting the peace sign to and fro. Was awesome to see the whole family and meet Ryken pre-burn and then get a little scoop from Jon on his way home.

<3 Gigi

Facebook page

I have been busy trying to invite those who camped with us this year to the closed Airstreameri facebook group. Look it up if you are one of us. We can share photos there. It would be nice if we could get Crazy Carl to post his Airstreameri theme song there! I still can't believe that he broadcast it on the Black Rock radio station. What a guy! The Playa force is strong within that one!

Jim, My Facebook account seems to be waiting for you to accept my request to join. I have never set up one of these pages so I could be failing to operate it properly.

Love the idea of a caravan or rally somewhere. Perhaps we can leverage an existing event somewhere and gather to camp together. Carrie and I will come up with some ideas to share.

We have had a lovely time in the Canadian maritime provenances. An extended tour of Newfoundland was fascinating. We are in Ottawa headed home. Our daughter has been house sitting all this time so I expect home will have changed a little.

Cosmic, Spitfire

I am having some trouble with the facebook group this morning too. Working on it!
