Soak, the first regional Burn in the Portland area, was held on the Central coast of Oregon near Waldport over the first weekend of June. It took place on 80 acres of beautiful landscape containing a lake, sweat lodge, playground, orchard, and many other attractions.
I was the main organizer of 1derland, a loose collective of Burners and other friends from the Portland area inspired by the tales of Lewis Carroll. The weekend pulled over 240 burners from all over Oregon and included a few family members from California, Washington, and even Vancouver BC. Most everyone was set up in a tent with a small minority in trailers and RV’s.
