Years ago when I was an activist for the Libertarian party, we made a concerted effort to steer the NRA from being a conservative organization to one concentrating on -- you know -- gun rights. We utterly failed. I am in the process of doubling my ammunition stash for use when the make Trump preside...

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

There was also a time when the rave was two miles out in open playa, far away from the effigy, but that was decades ago and the time machine is all broken. IIRC, the two injuries at the 1996 burn that helped prompt the BLM's stern gaze and the move off-playa in 1997 were caused by somebody speeding...

I tried the ravioli once. I went in ravenous because I was given to understand it was a generous portion. I got only five -- five really big ones; I ground to a halt about half-way through the last one.

Good luck - don't let me discourage you. But for your own sake, spend your first year experiencing and surviving the playa without trying to do too much. You only get one first year, and if it is right for you, you can come back bigger and better the next year. Golden words of wisdom. Unless you pa...

That's what the BLM seems to figure the policing we need costs (for 2015). And that's without Choco Tacos.
