Besides covering the floor, cover the upholstered chairs inside with sheet and duct tape. As soon as we get to Pyramid Lake near BM, we cover all the windows we can with heavy paper, taping inside. Hang a sheet between the cab and back part to cut down on dust. Don't underestimate the playa dust! It...

Best gift: last year I'd been having problems with my asthma with all the duststorms at BM, this guy wandered into our camp holding a flask of ice cold pomegranate juice, and said, "I heard you were having some breathing problems?

Love, Love, Love the poetry workshop idea. This summer I started writing Haiku as a break from the nonfiction I'd been writing for over the past two years. I'd written so much poetry over the years but never Haiku before...it made me very reflective, but in a way lightened me up from the nonfiction....

True, focusing on reading at BM could be challenging. I enjoy just talking to other writers myself and finding out what projects they're doing. Last year I put a few books out at Center Camp for people to write in and there were the most creative, cool entries. I still love looking through them. One...

Remember that whenever you feel a bit overwhelmed, there's always a nice chill space somewhere you can go to rest in and get out of the heat. Center camp, even, where you can regroup and just people watch and make a new friend or two. Or get a cool drink. Or go back to your own camp and take a littl...

If another isn't already being planned (or maybe even if it is) I can host as we're having a bar set up on the playa. Could do ...

Last year, spur of the moment, we walked over and joined the greeters on the first night. It was a really fun way to start the burn....atmosphere is so crazy and happy. People waiting in line were patient and just glad to get in, so it was fun to hug everybody and welcome them. i want to do it again.

My first mistake was in befriending a virgin burner who got kicked out of her camp; there was a reason. By the third day of having her eat our food (and never offer to help clean up), lounge around all day, and then make snide remarks to the women when the guys weren't around, it was just too much. ...
