I am going to try and speak my thing through answering one post... 1) Do you concider BM an experiment in anarchy? Since it exists within a non-anarchic society it can't be.

Most of them are related to the fact I do have the knowledge to build the stuff, but not the US names and regu...

I believe I traveled about 3,500 miles to get to Burningman last year, by myself. And I had a blast. I would advise finding another group or going alone also.

The most effective way of changing others' behavior is changing your own.

Life's journey is not about ariving at the grave all neat and well-preserved, but rather to skid in sideways, totaly worn out, shouting "Holy FUCK, what a ride!"

I saw a guy on a surfboard when comming out of one of this years' haviest whiteouts (wednesday? thursday?). Albeit he looked magnificent on his brightcolored surfboard with his 30ft. tail, it did seem kind of dangerous to be surfing around after such a hefty storm.
