I recall that one year (1997 maybe), BRC was moved waaay north of its usual location, practically in the shrubs. It wasn't a popular move, and had some challenges, based on comments I've come across. What were the details and reasons behind the move?
97 was one of my favorite years. Burning Man was still small. What would be completely ignored today was big then. Anyway I digress. What made 97 unique and memorable for me was the fact that you could go swimming over at the hot springs during the day. I remember thinking, how odd it was to be at BM and be able to swim.
