Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

(If the deal were on, I might consider a few minor colds in exchange for brain cell rejuvenation) Good Morning Bar! Had a good day yesterday with Lucky 420, and Pinemom, raking gravel for a couple of hours in the Reno Playa Art Park to help get ready for Grand Re-Opening last night. Then saw it in ...

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

Good morning bar! Yes I agree, Marty, I miss ygmir too! No hof this year, no burn for me, and no uuu for ygmir this weekend. Waaaaaah! Letting a habit slip after ten consecutive burns, I didn't miss it like I thought I would. I did go see the burn from a turnout a couple of miles away, got home and ...

Re: "Dont divorce your parakeet"

It is good advice to wait and see what the world actually feels like after Burning Man. I've had weeks of relative elation that lingered. One year though, within a week of return, I quit a long term job, put my belongings in storage in the city I was going to move to, and drove around the country in...

I like the tipi shape because it is tensioned fabric around all sides, which can spill some wind, and has lots of guy out points.

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

I guess I could tidy up a bit. I forget when the year's bar closes. Folks will be coming back wanting salad, and cold milk, showers and clean beds, then they'll saunter in here to start telling stories, I'm hoping. I am enjoying being bookended to some of my friends burns.

Re: Next Directions for Burning Man

Yep, Capn', er pardon, Admiral. It's closing out the individual who wants to bring their own burn, their own way, and fostering a consumer class who just pulls out a credit card, and gets on the bus or plane, like they are headed to an all inclusive resort. I watched the burn from a turn-out overloo...

Ygmir, thank you for mentioning the insect issues which can be a problem in the wettest years.

1000 admission tickets being sold with burner express bus tickets in June. I think we're headed towards curated art only and theme camps only. Sadly erasing the folks who decorate their little solo frontage in the outer rings.

I never slept in the car at the burn, except for the first nights when I'd roll in very late. It was my jumble secure storage, and the less time those car doors are open to the dust....well, it helps a little.
