The top douche bags of 2010 (and any year) are the fucktards with the Megaphones! How irritating is that? If I wanted to hear you, I would go up to you and talk to you. I don't want to hear you rambling on insulting people who walk by. I think you people with the megaphones just like to hear yoursel...

Thats pretty common. I get it each year, but the first year was bad. Its just your body trying to get all the playa dust out of your body and as a result, your immune system reacts as it should. Other factors play a role in how bad it is: fatigue, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, lack of water, e...

Drive safe to Burning Man

I know everyone wants to get to the playa as soon as possible but keep safety in mind. It doesn't matter if you drive fast or slow, you WILL have to wait in line. It doesn't make sense to drive fast and endanger yourself and others only to have to wait in line at the gate. Keep in mind that the auth...

8) Just set your gps to reno, nevada. You will need to get supplies: fuel, food, water, supplies etc.. before going to the playa. Once in Reno, just follow the 50,000 other ppl headed to BRC! You can't miss them! Black rock city is about 90 miles north of Reno give or take. Don't speed though, cuz t...

I don't know how strong the winds were but it was enough to snap 3 legs of our gazebo lol. p/s don't use walmart stakes, they hold great but they don't come out easy. They bend making it almost impossible to remove. You need a shovel to dig them out.
