Survival Guide

Our team creates the Survival Guide that is essential reading for every participant (and at least a good skimming by every other returning Burner). We like to suggest to people to read it carefully but the reality is to at least open it up and look at the pretty pictures! You can peruse it online in our Survival guide section of the website, or download a PDF to your device for offline reading. It is an excellent way to get specific event information, or at least find out essential preparation details.

What we do

We review all of the main information that is posted in the online survival guide, and ensure that it is all up to date. We communicate with the different teams to gain additional material before finalizing a design and posting it online.
