Re: Do you have or can you contribute 32x32 or 64x64 burning man logos (animated is better)?

Hi Marc, I saw your illuminated shirt from pretty far away, as you were walking along the Esplanade around the 9:30 area. It looked very cool in its 'fire' mode as I recall, so I bicycled over and at that point recognized you as the guy who has posted quality Burning Man photos in the past. We chatt...

Re: Virgin here, going solo...

While I think camping solo and fending for one's self in the desert is a rewarding challenge in itself Lina, and one I've greatly enjoyed, I should also mention that I consider Elliot's bicycle camp to be a top-notch camp filled with great folks who have a solid sense of what the burn is about.

Hi Lina222! Nice articulate introduction, I must say. Yep, keep on reading, and learning, and becoming more involved, and you'll be just fine out there. The very first time that you prepare for the burn, and make decisions related to it, can become an exciting and memorable aspect of the overall exp...

I'm not sure exactly what methodology they will use this year, but I feel confident saying that they will keep burners who are located overseas in mind as they put the finishing touches on this year's plan.

Re: The Bar 2018 Edition

Thanks yg. A slight correction: the debris that we are passing through now was shed from an asteroid, not a comet. However, some of the other meteor showers throughout the year involve debris shed from comets. Overall, the effects are about the same. I'm not sure how they try to determine if it is g...

Re: The Bar 2018 Edition

Yep, the way I understand it, as a general rule, you'll see more meteors as the night goes on. It has to do with the earth's rotation bringing your particular position around so that you are facing the leftover comet dust and debris field head on. Because of the natural orientation of the earth and ...

Yeah, now that you mention it Canoe, I recall you noting the blank space technique in one of your posts some time back. Seems like a thoughtful thing to do for those who have been deeply impacted by the tragedy.

I wasn't able to see your video link Canoe, but I'm guessing this is the video source you're referencing

EDIT: I went back and put a space in my link here, so it no longer automatically comes up, much as Canoe has been doing.
