The Bear Essentials
This is the last bear before we all meet in our beautiful city and explore its wonders.
Soon I too will disappear and become one with the dust.
You may catch glimpses of me off in the distance, shimmering like LED lights and hope reborn.
So remember that you promised me to leave no trace, to embody self-reliance and the other principles. Most importantly, make sure to close your eyes every few hours and just breathe.
This time, I wanted to be the very most practical bear that I can bear to be (teehee) and collect some essential information you will need before heading out to the desert.
We’ll have guidelines, opening hours, map info and more.
So get settled in, bring your highlighter to mark the important info and let’s dive right in.
And don't worry, this is not really my last bear with you.
This list for recommended equipment has been making the rounds the last couple of years, and it has most everything you could think of. You are welcome to download it and make it your own.
There are also things you should definitely not pack. Feathers, firearms, electric scooters abd more. Read about it all here: https://www.midburn.org/post/frobidden_items
When: All the opening hours of the city from the initial setup until the official opening of the city gates at 14:00 (2pm) on Monday 10.10
What: Once you reach the gates you will need your ticket (screenshot or printed in case there is no reception) and an ID/ passport. If you have a car you will also need a car pass.
