Welcome home next year mother fucker, you're almost older than dirt and have nothing to look forward too but increasing back problems and pill organizers.

Just kidding, you'll have a great time. Take it from someone who is older than dirt.

walked in sunday afternoon with no problems. hitched a ride to camp from the fifth vehicle that drove by. Well, to be clear I think what people are saying is you are welcome to walk/hitch your way into Burning Man. I've certainly done it. However, you may get crap at the ticket gate if you try to g...

Yah, Burning Man seems full of shiny happy people every year but once they get on the road it's amazing how many of those people who were all smiles and sunshine a few hours earlier become road ragey assholes (especially you Bay Arayans). If I see another road bathed in cow blood because the city fo...

No guns for the entirety of the event is part of the consent decree between BMORG and BLM. What is in the consent decree was arrived at through mutual discussion between the two organizations.
