Re: 2012 Virgin Thank You's

Dis)'(rack, no I didn't seek help at medical until Wednesday! Dumb me. In a way, I didn't like that people referred to me as a virgin while I was there, but I do agree with you - just getting to the gate is not really being de-virginized! So I'd say, I was a virgin before I entered the gate, and not...

2012 Virgin Thank You's

Hello everyone! 2012 was my first burn and I just wanted to extend my warmest thanks to the Greeters and Medical. Traveling to Burning Man was tough, especially because of a particular member of my group who was being a non-inclusive hypocrite and wanted everything done his way, and definitely overa...

Re: Death count at Burning Man

Your short search for information does not equal a cover up. :) You want what is known as the AfterBurn Report, Emergency Services Department section. Deaths on playa are recorded. Fatal injuries resulting ultimately in death are also recorded, as are all other ordinary treatments and transports at...

Re: Death count at Burning Man

The Comfort and Joy suicide, and Kathy Lampman falling under the art car trailer, those two for sure. Wasn't there a plane crash one year which killed three or four people? And a guy who ran into the Man's flames but died in Reno? An unconfirmed death in a tent, overdose or heart attack, which didn...

Re: Death count at Burning Man

FWIW, it seems to me most towns or cities of say 55,000 people will likely have one or two deaths over any given eight day period. Why should Black Rock City be any different? Of course, those towns also would have a couple of births as well, something BRC is probably not going to have. But the BM ...

Death count at Burning Man

Sorry to be morbid, but I'm very curious about the death count at Burning Man each year, and it seems very hard to find real information on the subject. This year was my first Burn, and it was joyous and wonderful, and while there I heard about the death of one skydiver on the Playa. I wondered quie...
