Root Society was right on Esplanade and 10. GREAT place! But I don't remember any signs of "flower of life". That sounds a lot more like it could be "House of Lotus" which was about a block or two off of Esplanade on 10. Root Society was a big dome with a chill dome off the back. Lotus had an outdoo...

To Alexis Mazurin, who after a heart attack on temple burn night last year, later died in hospital. His friends said goodbye to him this year at the temple burn. It is amazing how many lives he touched and what a positive impact he had on everyone around him. He will be missed.

I liked stalker camp. Simple but really cool idea. I signed up to stalk a few people and had a blast. Followed on guy on his art car all the way across the playa to a wedding at the temple and asked him why he didn't call me anymore, left creepy notes for people. It's fun to be creepy...restraining ...

Yojessimac, we saw that too and were equally disturbed. This is a true example of selfishness and poor parenting. If it is so important to a parent to party it up, leave the children at home. Some people just do not have the self restraint and good judgement to protect their children. It really make...

I thought I had seen a recent post on this but I couldn't find it. There has been ongoing drama and debate about kids at burning man. This year was no less volatile. I think most people do agree that if kids are included then parenting is the key factor to making it a safe and valuable experience. T...

More frequent cleaning? Great job to JOTS and everyone for keeping them so nice! Sadly, by the weekend there wa...

My hubby and I really don't have much graywater because of how we camp (no real dishes or showers). Small stuff like toothpase we spit straight into our trash bags. It's so little that the heat of the day ends up evaporating most of it anyway...and the rest is just trash to haul home.

We have done it with great intentions, sober and armed with super-coffees. We pack up camp and clean up before the burn and head out right after.
