I was quite disappointed with my volunteer experiences this year.
I signed up for a shift in advance to discover that me and 4 others help was unnecessary. and when attempting to pull an additional shift working the burn in anyway shape or form I was denied for some reason.
I never signed up for a shift before and always found a place to volunteer because help was needed. however volunteering in advance seemed to be futile. time was wasted trying to figure out where dmt needed the four of us until we were dismissed without working.
parking was of course the main priority due to the mud but there were too many leads acting and nothing seemed to get accomplished.

My friend and I helped run the gypsy bar home in the rain the first night. We met so many helpful beautiful friends along the way!
I skipped the party Saturday night to listen with an open heart to a new friend with a lot of pain. I feel quite bonded to him, though I haven't seen him since.
My friends and I were in superb cat garb for the Catlantis ball, but we never made it. We snuggled up in Chocolypse's gorgeous dome and mended some hurt spots in our relationships.
Oh, and a new friend spanked a naked girl at PLF so hard he thought he broke his wrist.

This was my first burn and I really enjoyed myself. In walking around some of the camps had a different vibe then what I am attracted to- like a darkness about them, but I was able to venture many places that only felt very happy and loving and accepting so I overall had a really wonderful experience and accept that different people are on different life paths and I'm ok with that. I most enjoy the nonjudgmental atmosphere of people that just enjoy the company of one another and enjoy having a place that they can just get weird and have fun. Everyone is so playful and silly it really is just a wonderful place so different than the "normal" world.

I had attended many music festivals in the past and I thought these experiences would prepare for transformus. I was wrong! I was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming encouragement of my friends and fellow burners to engage myself in what was happening around me. I felt that I was part of a community that came together to reach out and share themselves and their skills with the rest of the community. I realized that at previous music festival events I had mearly gone and consumed an experience someone was selling to me. When I left transformus it made me feel inspired to dream up things I want to share with this community. One disappointment I had about the experience is that I feel there is a huge hypocracy surrounding the leave no trace principal. There is an enormous effort made to keep the environment clean and to restore the site when everyone leaves. This is incredible and one of my favorite things about this event. What disappoints me is the disregard of "air moop" so to speak. I am a scientist studying climate change and I saw that there is a large carbon footprint left by these kinds of events. Between the effigy burn, the tanks of propane, the energy and gas used to make it all happen there is a lot of carbon being emitted. I plan to make my gift next year something that can balance these emissions. I know these burn events would not be the same without the fire and the burn and by no means should it be turned down or thrown out, however I do think we should be more conscious of our "air moop" and come up with was to balance our emissions.

Ahhhh, that's a loooong involved answer for this one. I'll summarize--I found a freedom I desired for myself ever since locking myself in a toxic relationship for 5 years, of which I had escaped from 2 days prior to attending, and to which being gifted the ticket was the catalyst. I met the most amazing people, was readily accepted by my old Moustacheville crew who I hadn't spoken to or seen all year since changing jobs, experienced some incredible art, food, music and dancing, and focused my thoughts on making a great deal of mental growth towards self actualization. I cried at both the effigy and temple burns with sheer happiness as I watched my old self burn away.Radical InclusionSundayYesYes!

I get to be more deeply involved with a team than just one or two shifts, but I still have the chance for volunteering variety (being involved with more than one team vs. spending the whole burn working with the same team).

I had the perfect balance of work time/play time/down time.

That no matter how wet/tired/muddy/etc. I am, home is still home and there is still no place I would rather be.

That sober bar crawls lead to serious stomach aches, but are still just about the best thing ever. Also, I was humbled and overjoyed at how many camps enthusiastically participated. I felt encouraged and supported and welcomed at a whole new level.

It broke my heart to have to leave before the effigy burn, but my campmates needed to get away from the soul-crushing experience they were having. In the future, however, I'd let them leave without me before missing out on so much of the highly-anticipated experience.Radical Self-ExpressionSaturdayYesI browsed through itYes!

My partner did a huge amount of work with the effigy team, and it was amazing to be there to see the work he (and all our friends) did, the amazing joy they created. It was a physically challenging burn and I feel that I got less out of it than I wanted to, but I am so grateful for that amazing burn night. I did get to help friends through a troubling experience, and I did form some great memories, but I know there was more that I didn't quite get to.Communal EffortMondayNot sure at this time.Yes!
