Topic: Reported suicide on the playa

That sure is a sad story! But yeah, my very 1st thought when I saw the headline about it being the "first suicide" was "What about that dude that dove into the flames years ago?" But anyway, sucky. :( If it's true that his friends left him hanging there for hours because they didn't believe he'd act...

I too am trying not to obsess & drive myself crazy. But here I am, again(!), lurking on the board. The truth is, I don't WANT to be there as I'm 5 months pregnant & know from experience that I don't enjoy bman whilst in the family way. To be more specific- I don't enjoy my bman whilst sober!! I last...

We fit 4 people into a minivan in 05 & made it work. Although we had to take out the last row of seats & put a huge mountain of stuff tied down to the roof of the van. We also didn't bring anything like art projects, just the usual basic playa gear. We were cramped (probably half the back was filled...

Larry Harvey brought his own son to the very first burn back in the day, & ever after. Wasn't he 2? Larry has stated again & again that Burning Man has and always will be, a family friendly event. It is an awesome learning experience for the kids (& the families as a whole). Stop judging, leave the ...

All right, here's TMI about my vaginal activities at last year's Bman. I DID try the 'ol "skip your placebo pills & go straight on to a new pack of pills" trick to stop my period from happening during Bman week. I had done it before with great success, but alas, it did not work that week! And I hadn...

Hm, there's no picture of the magical peepee device on that link, so I don't know what it is! My problem with it (whatever it is) would most likely be that I don't want to carry it around with me. I AM looking for easy pee ideas since I'll be 6 mos pregnant on the playa though. My other concern woul...

Hi all. This will be my 3rd year. I'm bringing one of my kids for the 1st time, she'll be 14 on 8/1 (I'm also bringing my fetus who will be 6 mos old ;) ). My ideal is to find another kid or two who are about her age so they can discuss Bman together or possibly decide to hang out or whatever. But I...

I can't even imagine what kind of "maintenance" your dreads might need? Unless you just want to wash them at some point? There are camps you can wash your hair at I hear.

I've never washed my dreads at Bman & they haven't bothered me or been a problem at all.

Having a baby is SO much cooler than going to Burning Man!!

Where can I purchase a pee funnel?

So, I'm a chick, & I want to pee in a jug during the night instead of shuffling to the port-a-potty. Where can I buy a funnel (or do they come in a package of disposable ones? I've not ever seen one)? (I did a search on this btw, but didn't find an answer) The last year I went I used a paint bucket ...
