Looks like Humboldt General Hospital's EMS Rescue team is helping out this year. I know in the past there have been long lines at the medical tent, but I'm assuming more severe situations move to the front of the line. As far as dry eyes, well... invest in a really good pair of goggles, I guess. And...

I'm gonna be carrying one of these, as a replacement for my old utility belt (which was a big belt covered in carabiners.)

I'd been looking for a revamp on the fanny pack, and this looks like it fits the bill.

This year's site inspection was delayed a loooong time because the playa's been underwater (or snow) since last September - and there's still standing water in some locations, although for the most part early returns are that once dry the surface is awesomely, beautifully hard packed like only a re...

I'll second what Elorrum said. Now that I think of it, though, even Viagra is dangerous. I don't mean side effects. When the penis can't fill with blood, it's a potential indicator that there are problems with the penis-bearer's circulation in general. So Viagra might be allowing people to ignore a ...

Last year I wore brazing goggles whenever the dust kicked up.

Flaw: you have no peripheral vision

I brought a heavy duty particulate mask, but I never used it. I'll be bringing it again this year, but I can't predict what will happen.

That chicken image looks utterly painful... like, beyond bondage.

I thought it was going to be a thread talking about the various camps that addressed bondage - one of which was suspended animation.

I saw one great kid at Deth Camp, singing/yelling on stage for the group that had gathered. Can you imagine how awesome that must have been for him? Everyone in the crowd was shouting encouragement and applauding.
For me, it was totally unexpected, but also one of my favorite parts of the festival.

Got back to defaultia on Tuesday night. Still adjusting.

I guess being a little anal paid off, though. Any time someone needed something, I had it. I always got the response, "Wow, you thought of everything, didn't you!"

But now I have to start preparing for next year!!

Shade structures are usually a great help, as suggested by SonOfUgly. I like the idea of a dry-ice fueled passive system, but I think it requires some research. At what rate will your dry ice be sublimating? Will your insulation slow it down enough? How much dry ice would you need to last the entire...

As stated in the 2009 Survival Guide:

Sex acts are prohibited in the civic space of Black Rock city and in unrestricted public environments. Burning Man also supports your right to privacy as a resident of our community.
