Re: Toward a PnP Code of Ethics and Best Practices

For those who haven't been paying attention, Burning Man rarely enforces the rules they already have.

After 24 hours at Burning Man, everybody is dirty, smelly, choking on dust, hung over, and on the verge of heat stroke. If she wanted to have an affair with another guy, doing it in a hotel room would be a much more pleasant experience. I don't know your girlfriend, so you should ask yourself if she...

Our regional has good DJs, if you like that sort if thing. However, their system is so loud, it drowns out everything else in the entire area. Including conversation in your own camp!

But remember, if there were no music/ parties at burningman, there would be NOTHING to do at night.

A few of my tricks. The mister bottle with battery op fan is good for when you are sitting around camp. Get the wide mouth version so you can fill it with ice and water.

I've always wanted to attend Burning Man and finally was able to peak some interest in friends that might want to go. If you had to talk them into it and they "might want to go", assume that all your friends will flake on you at some point, probably at the last minute. Have a workable plan that inv...

Go to Alchemy this year. Think of it as Burning Man with training wheels.
If you got 35 bucks for a ticket and gas money, you can make it happen.
I have been twice, and would recommend it.
