    This will be my first Burning Man and I'm excited -- but also worried in terms of how to prepare, what to bring, etc.

    I can't go. Will be in NYC visiting a burner I met at Freeform. Will there be any other Beginners events before Burning Man (which I will be going to, this year, for the 1st time)?
