Re: BRC Center Camp Post Office

My first year in 2005 I met this guy Tom who was working the post office. I liked him so I went with him. We went to the top of the Post Office overlooking center camp and shot pants out of a cannon to people who were naked or shirt cocking. I vaguely remember postal work being done, but I know ther...

Re: Notes from this year

Such a great thread and to the Original Poster, your post made me sad, and it was well said. Tokens post, too. All of these posts..... I went 7 years and skipped 2010, and 2013, 14 and this year. I want to go back and say bye one more time. But if I do next year, I'm going to be all about going arou...

Re: So, how dusty was it?

Not only was the man burn delayed in 2008, but remember how dust stormy the Temple burn was, too? Plus the city was extra big for the amount of people there, so there was a ton of empty space. I actually got lost on the way back from the temple burn, lost my friends, and then my el wire flower beaco...

And we had our requisite conversation via bullhorns from across the street for the year. It's just not a complete Burning Man unless you have at least one ...

Re: Live report from the Captain

I bet. I camped in Nevada City last night so I wouldnt have to drive home after a few drinks from a little Live Feed burn party my friend had last night. It was cold, I had to bundle up a bunch. And yes, its colder on the playa than in the Sierra foothills. Some burners from off the road pulled in f...

Re: Live report from the Captain

While some might think that being spared the 100 degree days is a good thing, I find cold more intolerable when celebrating. I'm 4 hours away and its been cold as fuck here, too. Freezing IMO is a bigger buzzkill than heat. At least the heat you can just lay back, spray yourself with water, keep hyd...

Re: Best way to find camp to join?

Ive heard some bad stories about the $250-$400 fee larger camps, like meals were not provided like promised, stuff like that. Make your search more on a connection base rather than a $400 "spot" in a camp. It will be a better experience in my opinion if you search for a theme or not theme ...

It is always the end. And always the beginning. You can connect or disconnect. Connect when it fills you. Disconnect when you are full.

NOT AN IMPORTANT QUESTION by any means, but still, when it comes to Burning Man, what if you aren't a virgin, but you don't feel like you are a "Vet", either? I think after a few burns you get identified by your camp, regional, volunteer, or whatever self-selected genre you prefer. It's l...
