A friend of mine recently discovered bacon-flavored vodka, and plans on bringing it in large quantities. Bacon-flavored PBR? Also, tenting it is okay as long as you have a shade structure over it. Costco carports are relatively cheap ($200), keep the tent nice and cool, add a small amount of dust pr...

Hey! Welcome! I love talking to virgins who are set on going, because it reminds me that I am just as excited for this year's Burn as I was for my first. Does this ever change? Make sure to read the Survival Guide and ask everyone for tips on what to bring! There are certain items that are not on th...

Seeing cops on the playa is frankly one of the funniest parts of the experience. You've got a crowd of costumes, paint, nudity, lights, and anything else that your mind could ever dream up...and right in the middle is a police car. Finding the person on acid is like the hardest game of "Where's Wald...

That was simply an amusing picture until I noticed the bacon.

Stumpy - My first Burn two years ago was when I was nineteen as well. My first piece of advice: BRING CHAIRS. My second piece of advice: bring too much water. My third piece of advice: don't just hitchhike. Arrange something beforehand with a group, bring what you can fit from home, buy everything e...

Seemed to me, 2008 had less of the deafening thumping and more variety in music. Which I liked.

I DEFINITELY noticed that as well. It was nice to have an occasional respite from the oontz oontz.

Playa Rollerskiing!

That's right folks, it's the next wave of fashionable playa madness! It's the new craze! The self-proclaimed, LLC-endorsed, minister-ordained official new sport of Burning Man that is practiced by Mr. Larry himself! It's playa rollerskiing, that's right, PLAYA ROLLERSKIING. What is this fantastic ne...

If you miss us, buy the book!! Well, that's obviously a given.

Where is the eDust?

If this forum is going to be a legitimate ePlaya, the screen should be whited out about 70% of the time so that it is almost impossible to read the comments.

My worst would be 2007, when I learned the "Be REALLY Fucking Careful About What Cup You Drink Out Of" rule by contracting strep throat on the playa.

Agreed! Or rather, we should make the fire show fifteen minutes long and bring back the DPW. I never got to see that, but I just want to see the fucking DPW guys doing a parade. They seem like folks that would know how to do one. Also, did anyone else notice that when the Man's left arm fell, it loo...
