Well, being a ex-athlete of numerous sports and feeling those pains daily, I try to be as active as possible. Love the outdoors and everything that goes with the wonders of Mother Nature! Including the powerful wrath she sometimes unleashes.
Beginning in 2007, I have found a growing peace with in myself. Which has come from a greater appreciation for nature, and my new found family of Burners out there. For the first time, I feel no prejudice against others, and most importantly MYSELF!!! Killing people with kindness and showering folks with hugs, love,respect and understanding has made me a better all around person! Thanks for listening,,,Love and hugs from me to you!!! Finally realizing that the past is gone and hard and sometimes painful lessons learned are just part of this life’s journey! (no dwelling for me)… Life is short and living what’s left to the fullest is my main goal! Thanks to all of you for being a part of ME… much love and hugs to all! HuggEB ♥

In July of 2007, I attended Transformus, which set off a chain of events leading me down a weird and meandering path full of inclusion, art, lots of fire, and a complete change of life. I found my tribe of weirdos and I haven’t looked back since. The 10 Principles became a foundation for my life moving forward and resonated within me in a way little else had in my life. My family and close friends became burners as my passion engulfed them, too. With a team of like-minded, passionate, burners who all felt the same need to share this amazing experience with others, we started The Hillbilly Burn, aka Reclaimation, in 2009. Over a decade later, with many regionals and events under my petticoats, and my love for the Principles and the culture they nurture is ever growing. I have been blessed to serve on the Flaming Hollow, LLC BOD for 11 years, Ranger and Gate Lead for 8 years, and an overall poker and prodder of the herd of ferrets I’m continually trying to corral.  I’m also a new Regional Contact for Kentucky and look forward to meeting and interacting with you all!

I’m fairly new to burning, 2 years, but I’ve been living a 10 principles life for a long time. I knew the day I first browsed the BM website that I was meant to be a part of this community. I live by a code of love, respect of my fellow lifeforms, and crafting supplies, and I am always happy to teach my fellow lifeforms about any of these.

In recent years life changes (becoming a Mommy) has seen me stepping back into a Founders role. Love Reclaimation and in awe we have been doing it for 10 years.
A little about my burn life. I started at Transformus as my home burn in 2006. It was at that very burn that the founders group all met and thought of the idea of a regional in Kentucky. From that meeting we grew a burn and made a family.
A little about me I’m a born and raised Kentuckian. I am a cancer survivor/ warrior. I have been a teacher and I currently work in the transportation industry. But besides burning the most fulfilling job had been as “Mommy”.
Reclaimation is my extended family and I always love to have new family.

A bit about me. I spent 20 years In default world working with children w special needs. I’ve also facilitated critical thinking, active listening and mediation workshops for incarcerated youth and adults. While I’m pretty proud of my work in those fields my work as a community organizer has been invaluable to me in terms of being a burner. I am currently the Ranger Co-lead at Reclaimation… i started out as a Panda, though recently I’ve evolved into a Pandacorn. I’ve been burning since 2014. Ttitd being my first exposure to the culture. Reclaimation is my home, and my family. I owe all that i am today, in terms of being a burner to my association with Reclaimation. I am ecstatic to be able to share my strengths with this community..

I love puppies, long walks on the beach and i’m the “outdoorsy type” who loves sangria baths accompanied by paddlins…
 
HBR is my home burn. What I do I mean by that? I am originally from Illinois, but my first burn experience was right here in Kentucky. Fall of 2012 I started coming to these “work/play” weekends deep in the Eastern Kentucky mountains with an idea of what Burning Man was. I had been to no less than 3 of those little get-togethers before I committed to coming to the Kentucky burn. Spring of 2013 sealed it in fire for me(Even thought it was a soggy year). Now i’m forever apart of the Kentucky “Burns” family. I love this community and what it stands for. I believe this “little” regional keeps the spirit of Burning Man alive.To me Burning man is more than just a specific place and set of people.  I look for ways to apply the principles to my default life. Sometimes I think they have become one in the same. I can’t wait to meet you!
