Re: Virgin from Olympia/Seattle!

Hello Evan! We also hail from the lovely state of WA and last year was our first year. Happy to share any info I have with you:-) We joined an established theme camp last year and brought our own MV to the playa even as virgins and had the time of our lives! This year we are forming our own NW based...

Re: challenging "the Temple"

Last year was my first burn and I went to the temple at least 5 times. It was so beautiful and very moving for me and my whole family. We lost my dad this year we said a very special goodbye to him there that was incredibly emotional for us all, strangely much more so than his actual memorial here. ...

Re: How safe is burning man?

One of our campmates was drugged when someone on an art car filled her water bottle on the open playa.

Re: So, what the fuck qualifies as a mutant vehicle?

We were virgins this year and brought our MV to the playa. It was a pretty simple design but we had no issues at DMV and the hotties that dealt with us said it was great that we were virgins and brought a vehicle that looked like the drawing I had submitted in the permit process so that made us feel...

Re: Headlights?

Headlights were not required by DMV hotties and there were no stops by leo's without them on our MV. I specifically asked the DMV hotties when I got my MV permitted if headlights and tail lights were required and the answer was NO.
