I think 1 week is just the right amount of time!! If you want the festival to go for 2 weeks, then come out for pre-week and set something up!!!! If you want the festival to go for 3 weeks, come out early, work on a big art project or work out on the ranch. If you want the festival to last for more ...

"Do-Ocracy"

If you see something that needs to be done, why aren't you doing it??? Burning man isn't created for you to consume, its created for you to be a part of it. If you think that should be built, go build it!!

Playa Lung Anyone?

Well for the 3rd year in a row I have come down with what I affectionately like to call the "playa lung!" What generally happens is sometime sunday I get this tingly feeling in my throat which quickly turns into a cough. For the next 4-5 days I cough, and cough, and cough. Lots of good mucus and the...

Well since we are on the subject of checking ids at bars, i figured I would chime something in. Do NOT walk around on the playa with your actual ID. Leave it in your car! Every year I go to a local print shop and have them photo copy my id. They do a hi-def photo copy then laminate it for $5. You ca...

I am trying to figure out how I am going to cover my dome for this year. I have not decided on how big the dome will be either. Between 15 and 20 feet. I was wondering what size parachute I should look for. Whats the general "rule" for parachute to dome size?

If you are mounting them on your art car then just build a plexi glass box for them.

Just buy some americ...
