Always go with ronjon's numbers, of course!

That burned up dinner party photoshoot was from the dreaded zoo camp/champagne company/magazine fiasco in 2011, if I remember correctly.

Ok, I'll say 2014 then. I was near the AEZ sign when it was hit, or very nearly hit by lightning. It was loud as fuck.

Possibly the loudest sound I've ever heard in my entire life. That was unreal.

It was loud as fuck all right, but still paled in comparison to the sound this thing made when it detonated...

We are still kicking ourselves for leaving before the Crude Awakenings burn (2007). That was the only year we left right before the Man burn, because we were stupid and thought we didn't "need" to see it. Now we stay until early Tues...

Eric I have an epic photo of Crude Awakening right as the cannons went off, I was up close enough that it was instantly hot as fuck. I'll find it when I get home.

My first year, couldn't believe how hot it was and we were WAY back. Still the most impressive and seemingly dangerous and out of control major installation I've seen. Also, the tree they raised in that spot the morning after solidified me as a lifer. I couldn't believe how clever, touching, poignant it was, and also marveled at the effort it took. Yep. That was the one.

They burned the man on Saturday instead of Sunday to give people more time to clean up the mess.

Not a clue. But...You know you're a Burner when this picture looks like the most natural thing in the world.
