Evolution of Burning Man

Few people understand that Burning Man actually evolved out of ancient Swedish cultural rituals.

I don't mean to revive the whole debate, I just wanted to post my experience from the playa this year. My camp (Eridu) was directly across the street from Outpost 23 this year. Our experience was that they were awesome and respectful. As they'd stated with their camp application this year they were...

In 2003 after I passed Pyramid lake heading north to Gerlach during the day, a flat brown metallic "pancake" (for lack of a better description) about 100-150 feet in diameter flew over and in front of my car about a half mile away going west to east at about 100 mph. It continued, west to east, in a...

Hey Ms Mutaytor! We had to leave BRC on Thursday this year, but fortunately we caught you on Wednesday night at 4:30&Esp. We have many fond memories of you at Xara Dulzura and Pinky's 2003!

But never a full on take over. I can relate to his sad situation. In our similar situation, we moved. The...

Partying can be a spiritual experience. I'm sure drugs, incl booze, have been used in connection with vision quests and altered states ever since when.

One more thing - DO NOT speed up to the MPH limit on the sign you are approaching until you have past that sign! This is worth repeating.

If you are going 30 and you see the sign for 40 coming up - DO NOT accelerate until you pass that sign. A little trick they use.

Re: Public question for BORG on Placement/Sound Policy

I'm somewhat shocked that you consider 2 streets from the esplanade and 1/2 hour from 10 O Clock the "quet zone". Though limited me experiences would suggest that anything close to the edge (10 and 2) or within 5-6 streets of the esplanade is pretty much busy 24/7. I read your previous thread about...

Here hopefully, is my last post on this subject. It is self-evident why I dismiss claims the Outpost23 lied on their questionnaire. They asked us "to be placed near late night friendly camps", away from "Noise sensitive areas". Very upfront and honest. No deception on their part. FALSE that they de...

Nice boots - but if there is any rain at all, those boots will collect the mud underneath and add another foot to your height!!!

There is only one thing I've that works for walking in playa mud, and that is socks!

Player was complaining about Outpost23 in this thread as recently as August 11th.

As I was not privy to their decision, I could...

MikeVDS --

Mmmm . . . well, thanks for your honesty and your advice. Either way, I'm just so glad that, regardless of whatever anyone thinks about this, it's settled and came to a happy conclusion.

It's all good. Enjoy your burn.

Dear BORG and Burners -- I'd like to know why - oh why - after I had shared the information of our plight with Outpost 23 aka THE AFTERPARTY last year (see http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?t=15111), that the organizers could once again place an avowed late night party sound-blasting 2000 w...
