Posted:I've not even starte don the basic contact stuff though I did get an intorduction to it at the weekend there and am keen to try out some more!

The noise and heat are quite impressive at first! I had my 2nd and 3rd burns on saturday night just past and I successfully managed to set myself alight and extinguish myself so thats another box checked!!

Posted:im trying to move on to more complicated contact with my practise staff... and my blue glow staff.... i tinhk its unwise to do it with fire though... cos im crap i guess

im yet to burn myself or set myself on fire... and i dont intend to either. but i guess its inetivable!

Posted:Congrats to all you new burners hughug

Wouldn't recommend Dizzy's approach tho' - you don't get to choose how big the scar's are or where they are! :ouch:

Never forget my first burn - 19th December 2004 , think you were there Pete? - and most times I light up even now, the smell and noise are enough to take me back to the anticipation edged with fear, the thrill of actually spinning with fire - like a virgin anticipating, well y' know wink ubbangel biggrin
