First thing to do on the playa in 2021

Post by Sham » Thu Jun 18, 2020 1:44 pm

If all the planets align for us, we'll be back in Black Rock City in August of 2021.
After setting up camp and getting things in order, what will be the first thing you will be doing on the playa?
I am craving a walk to the Man installation and just hanging out there until I am covered in dust. I really need to be completely enveloped In Burning Man.

We will sit under an umbrella waiting for the placer. Drink beer, giggle and then trade stories of what went on for the last 2 years. Set up camp and sleep so we can go to work the next day. (We get there a week early.) If we get our bikes put back together we'll ride out and see who's here.

If it's daylight, while waiting for the Placer, I'll just stand and look towards the Man and at the mountains. Soak it in and know that I am back. Then set up camp and go for a walk. Much like other years.

Find Temple and chill in remembrance of all the people & things lost in this hell that is 2020.

Video games are giving kids unrealistic expectations on how many swords they can carry.
