If it's your first time at Burning Man, then you're a virgin. Which means that you have lots to learn. There are lots of guides on the Internet, such as the Burning Man: First Timer's Guide

If you have questions about life at Burning Man, it means that you have googled too little. Google more (or use any search engine of your choice).

You can also read Princess Trooper's Burners Skool notes!

If you have questions specifically about Dali Ville, read the FAQ. You can add questions to that page if they are not answered already, but please do not add general Burning Man questions such as "How much water should I bring?"

Self-reliance means finding stuff out and taking care of your food, water, sleeping and other needs completely by yourself.
