Ah yes, the return of "It's not my camel" is another thing to look forwards to.

Are you a native american? If so, pursuant to law originating in the 1800's, you can not be barred from riding a horse on federal land.

If you are not a native american, you may pass unimpeded on federal land via horseback if you are carrying a prisoner, or the corpse of a prisoner, to the nearest Marshal or Sheriff, or are looking for branded livestock.

Know your rights under the law! Brand your Sparkle Ponies!! :mrgreen:
Is a Sparklepony with a tattoo close enough?

The idea of a bunch of weary travelers hauling all of their shit across the desert to hang out and share hooch and shoot the shit around a fire isn't bad at all.

I don't know how they would top the man base last year. We didn't go; just saw pictures. The crowd has more than doubled in size since I first saw the man, and Burning Man itself is indeed growing. I like it. This is going to be fucking awesome.

Caravanserai readings

We dismounted to gaze at the venerable minarets and the green dome which covers the tomb of the Prophet. The heat was dreadful, the climate dangerous, and the beasts died in numbers. Fresh carcasses strewed our way, and were covered by foul vultures. The Caravan was most picturesque. We traveled principally at night, but the camels had to perform the work of goats, and step from block to block of basalt like mountaineers, which being unnatural to them, they kept up a continual piteous moan. The simoom and pillars of sand continually threw them over.

Water is the great trouble of a Caravan journey, and the only remedy is to be patient and not to talk. The first two hours gives you the mastery, but if you drink you cannot stop. Forty-seven miles before we reached Mecca, at EI Zaribah, we had to perform the ceremony of EI Ihram, meaning 'to assume the pilgrim garb'. A barber shaved us, trimmed our moustaches; we bathed and perfumed, and then we put on two new cotton cloths, each six feet long by three and a half broad. It is white, with narrow red strips and fringe, and worn something as you wear it in the baths. Our heads and feet, right shoulder and arm, are exposed.

The thing I like about this theme is that it is something the city itself can buy into. The public face of any camp can benefit from this theme.

Dammit, now any time I think "This year's Burning Man" the phrase is immediately followed by "Brought to you by Dodge" in my head. What have you done? :shock:

I still think that the best Burningman costume will be something akin to a 1850s U.S. Dragoon Cavalry unit trooper, one from Camp Verde. (with the US Camel Corps). Think I'm kidding?

Not a chance.
