I had a friend camp solo one year and she had a great time. She even hooked up with one of her neighbors and dated him for several months after the event. I used to go camping at places like Harbin Hot Springs on my own. I think it's easier to meet new people when you're on your own, rather than in ...

The event is above the radar now. The only way to change things is try to find a similar experience at a much smaller event, or change society. Or, I hate to say it, make it an adults-only event - the local sherriffs get a lot of play out "protecting the children". Yes it would seem that making the...

Too bad there's not a Pink Pussy Cat Camp (correct name?) this year, then you could do semi-public masturbation with lots of admirers looking on. Though surely someone is filling that void this year.

That's a tough situation. I've gotten sick from heat due to previous meds and I know it can be a drag to be sick while everyone else is having fun. As long as he's prepared to entertain himself if he needs more down time than the rest of his friends it shouldn't be too bad. Some possible things to d...

I worked with The Pirates of the Gonorrhea at the Gate last year. They had some fun names like Dirty Sanchez and Nervous Gerbil. Can't think of any more at the moment. Those are my faves so far.

As for giving of yourself, I've done that and had some interesting and positive experiences. But there are certain camps (I won't name names) that seem like if you don't have stuff to gift them, you're not welcome to even come in and look around, let alone do much else. I'm also not the type to fre...

Most Americans understand that there will have to be trade-offs between individual liberties and the need to prevent a major catastrophe. Don't agree on this one. This is just another cold war tactic, to keep us living in fear, so that we'll do anything including giving up the liberties that this c...

Re: New is good. Let's move! No More Was Hoes!

My first year was 1994 and the most amazing fact about the event was the concept of no rules. There were no streets and you just camped wherever you stopped your car or truck. BM has evolved into something much different. So if you want something different you will need to start your own thing. The...

Drugs are illegal. Just because you're at Burning Man doesn't make it OK. Just because there are laws against them doesn't make them all bad.
