No way

When is element 11 and is it still going on after the warehouse incident that you noted?

Burned down?!?

Egads, what do you mean "base camp burned down"?

Thanks bunches!

Thank you very much for this information. Too bad that this is last minute news and that those running the decompression couldn't have provided data on this matter much much much earlier. Not sure that we can go now as work sort of wants us to give a little notice before taking the time off. :( Hope...

Utahns

While I can't speak for other camps where the people were from Utah, I can easily speak for our camp at 4:30 and Chaos. All of us were from Utah and our camp was most certainly very green. :) While this was my first year, I was with a group that had been coming for years and they were very thorough ...

Utopianizer?

Says the person who probably fits the bill, "What, praytell, is a Utopianizer?" D. (playa name is on the tip of my tongue) You are correct in that I didn't really travel to Kidsville, mostly I think because I'm not a kid (well not physically) and had no real reason to venture into that area. I did p...

Jkisha, You are correct in that I didn't really travel to Kidsville, mostly I think because I'm not a kid (well not physically) and had no real reason to venture into that area. I did pass the area a few times, and I do recall seeing a few children off and on, just not very many. And on your points,...

Woot!

Awesome idea. This last burn (2009) was my first, but I noticed very few families (in this definition of the word family, I am including the fact that there were all ages involved), and I think that it would be a great experience for the full family to enjoy. I think back to my youth and I would hav...

No issues

My partner and I purchased semi-inexpensive beach cruisers (a little less than a hundred dollars each from Walmart) for burning man. We got horns, and lights, and baskets, repair tools and supplies, locks and cables as well as oil and such for the bike so that we would be fully prepared. We had read...

WooHoo, another one.

Awesome, it's great to see a fellow Utahn on here. I have many friends from Utah who joined us in our camp for the 2009 burn, but I have no idea how well we are represented in the other nearly 50k people that were there. It's nice to see that there are more of us. :) D. (searching for his 2010 playa...

Too many thank you's for a single simple note

Who to thank? Well, let's start with the macro and work our way to the micro. To those who thought of Burning Man, who put it together each year, to those who allow it to be held, and to the thousands of people whom I didn't meet personally but who managed to create an overall event that was truly m...

Wow, that's awesome

Ok, I like this guy. Granted I have no specific reason of note so as to narrow it to something useful, but overall, I like him. Ever in Utah, feel free to stop on by, as we are considering an art project that might actually fit in perfectly with your skills. Dan (still considering a playa name for n...

Dust was perfect

Granted this was my first year on the playa, so I don't have past years for comparison. I loved it. :) I had been told stories, read a lot of the boards, researched like crazy, and had this impression that the dust would be a difficult bike ride. I would say that easily 70 percent of the time I had ...

Utah Decompression?

Anyone know of a Utah decompression going on? I haven't heard of one yet and I was wondering if there was someone who had some data on it.

Thanks,

Dan

Great response

This is most certainly helpful to the OP as it not only answers their question, but it does so in a polite and understanding fashion. I love it when people are helpful, compassionate, and understanding of others that may have opted for different paths on their way through life. Dan I'd suggest not d...
