My biggest misconception my first year was that I would be attending all kinds of events and theme camps that I had been reading about for month previously. I had not yet encountered the concept of playa time, where everything takes 3x as long as it does elsewhere, and people you are supposed to mee...

I'd love to bring some stuff from Canada for trading and giving, but alas, that darn border! Last I checked you could still bring gifts across the border. The only ting I wouldn't do is print up 1000 matching t-shirts because they will assume you are selling them and taking $ away from hard working...

The protest in Vancouver seems to be run by similar nitwits, who have decided to tack on a whole bunch of other issues to the protest (afghanistan, palestine, native people in canada). Oh and of course they also have to protest 'US imperialism in Haiti'. Not everything is about 'US imperialism', kid...

From my very limited experience with DPW and the work ranch you seem to have an accurate idea of what things are like already (especially the hard drinkin' part). I know if that had been my first contact with burning man I would have been pretty shocked and surprised, since there ain't no peace and ...

yup, i was camped at the bayou (although it was mostly set up once I arrived so I don't claim any creative accomplishment). Very nice place to hang out on a hot afternoon after too many shenanigans the night before.

I would say go for the road trip if that's what you want to do. Somehow it seems like cheating to fly. As you get closer and the scenery gets more and more desert-like and your excitement builds. Ok so my drive is 'only' about 20 hours, but manages to be filled with many (mis)adventures (border cros...

i'm all for rioting at the post office. this past year they berated me to give up my beloved hat, and then they threw a chunk of metal at me. i know they're supposed to be surly, but that was a bit much. good thing i threw the chunk of metal back at them.
