The pie shape looks fabulous. If people want to camp or stroll where they can see a lot of open playa, there's the crimped edge of the pie crust.

Ugh, yeah. It was too big this year. Unlike previous years, where getting around wasn't a big deal, I alternated between biking and walking to get around in order to give different sets of muscles a rest, and I ended up with bloody, blistered toes anyway. By the end of the week, I had just given up ...

Ok...so no specified time.

I'm just trying to talk my husband into staying for it, but we have a plane to catch in the (late) morning and he doesn't want to drive tired when there might be random cows on the road.

What to do what to do...

You can fight about stupid stuff and go wild separately and wreck your relationship at Burning Man, or you can have an awesome time together and be kind and understanding with each other.

How to participate when you don't have much prep time?

I've been to Burning Man a couple times before, and both times I had time to make costumes, make plans, and bring odds and ends to contribute to various projects. This summer, though, grad school is eating me alive and I have a major comprehensive exam 2 days before Burning Man. Did you ever go to B...

Thumping Art Cars

So there I was having a nice chat with some folks sitting around in a camp. Along came an art car blasting dance music, and whoever was talking stopped in mid sentence because it was suddenly impossible for us to hear each other. We all waited for the art car to pass before resuming our conversation...

It was pretty much okay for the week- maybe a little fuzzy by Sunday, but not too bad. It took a lot of w...

I wonder whether I had inferior quality spirit gum, whether I applied it badly, or whether that means it's a risk for accidental MOOP if ...

Also, try not to let the police hear you refering to them as pigs, as this may make them grouc...
