DFW burners on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/24688364529 This group is primarily for current banter & activities, fringe events & casual chatter -- you know, the SOCIAL stuff -- of burners in the DFW Burner community. By the way, DFW = Dallas / Fort Worth. AND, although our community might have a geographical label, our hearts do not. To be included in this group you only need an interest and desire to be part of the aforementioned banter, activities, events, etc etc etc.

North Texas Burners (NTXB): https://www.facebook.com/groups/ntxb.official/
This is the official Facebook group for NTXB (the group of North Texas Burners that produces Myschievia) and those who live the principles of Burning Man culture in North Texas year-round. Its function is to provide information about NTXB; provide information from NTXB leadership; provide information about the area's local burn, Myschievia; and about Burning Man and its 10 principles. Members of this NTXB group do not have to live in North Texas.

Twitter goes through periods of use and disuse, but during events we use it for navsat!
