Orlando–the City Beautiful–is where you'll find me, but I serve the greater Central Florida area. I organize gatherings in the Central Florida area as well as our regional Burns that are held in Lakeland. If you're located in other parts of the state I'll do my best to put you in contact with the local Burners in your area. I am also closely connected with the Burner community in the Gulf Coast/Tampa/St. Pete area. The Central Florida community and Gulf Coast community interact regularly and often cross pollinate for parties, Santarchy, etc.
Although we don't all camp together on the playa, there are quite a few of us that camp with Pillow Punch, the Dusty Swan, Spankys, the Hooka Lounge, and others. Many of us also attend and camp together at Transformus, Alchemy, and Serendipity. Besides the big Burn, we get together regularly for cookouts, bar nights, dinners out, and parties. We also have two Burns each year, PreHeat in April and AfterBurn in November.
Get involved and find out about local happenings by signing up on our Announcement list, chat with other Burners on our Discussion lists, or follow us via your social media of choice - but definitely come out and get involved!
