Clean & Sober in BRC

I have been in recovery many years. Although it is tempting, you CAN stay sober on the playa! I am glad I did-I was overwhelmed as it was!! There are many theme camps-my favorite being the Hokey Pokey camp which is usually right by coffee hut-the recovering addicts new addiction. =) I know alot of f...

I am home again!

Well, I am back! Had some very difficult years and was not able to make it to the Playa, but damnit, I am going alone this year, and going solo! I am wondering if anyone can tell me the name of the RV rental company out of Sacramento or Reno that rents to Burners. Thank you!

Yes thanks

Very cool of you to leave those. I mixed too many drinks (3) with meds-not a good combo. Still trying to decompress from that f*cking doctor at BM that messed me up so bad. Anyway, I am totally friggin embarrassed about my behavior that night. Hope to see you tomorrow. I was going to drop out of BM ...

Depression since Burning Man

Anyone else fall into a depression since BM? I have done so very badly. BM really showed me how fucked up the "real world" is and how worthless the things we do are. Not sure what else to say.

Great Party-Great burners in Santa Cruz!

We attended the first annual 2003 afterburn and it was a blast! This time I may be coming solo and going to have a great time! I will bring a tent this time, too! What else can I bring to help out? I felt so helpless and stupid not having anything. Hookaville was awesome-we had a great time with som...

Whatever

Same catagory as my boss "Burning man is just a bunch of loaded hippies-two people DIED there!". Stay home you closed minded retards. A guy died at the Giants game last night, too. Ugh, I don't want my ugly city anger to come out on the beautiful playa boards.

Smoke Camp

well, crap, I had PLENTY of smokes left and was handing them out all over the place starting Saturday night. Being a newbie, I thought this could be a gift. Folks were loving it. I brought so many smokes, we barely had room for food. =) Gotta have my smokes. So, next year, I will let you know where ...

Been sober 25 years

I have been sober over 25 years in AA and NA. There are many many FUN sober camps at Burning Man-the Hokey Pokey is right there by the cafe-a great group of folks from Mexico. No one can make this person stop. I had over 13 years at one time and relapsed, and when people tried to shove it on me, it ...

Asian Man not understanding the Temple

I was at the Temple one of many days posted and writing and crying all over when this Asian male came up to me and asked me "Why are you crying?" I thought he was kidding, but he was totally serious. I was trying to explain through tears and snorts about the temple, when David Best actually walked o...

Relationship Trouble-we had it

Oh boy, my hubby and I had trouble at our first burn. Due to the stress of getting there (trailer broke, no money,etc.) and then my doc had given my pills I thought were antidepressants, and migrane meds, but he actually gave me a lethal combo of some pills for epilesy and MS. Anyway, I was mentally...

On Saturday night, we saw the art car "Wild Load" running over signs and tents and stealing signs and bending rebar and yelling at people. We reported them to the Rangers. They were out of control and very rude, yet I saw them on Sunday driving around the playa. I liked your art alot, I am so sorry ...
