from the Ten Principles of Burning Man:
  • Radical Inclusion - Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
  • Gifting - Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
  • Communal Effort - Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
  • Civic Responsibility - We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

I heard someone presented on Pottie etiquette. I am ever so curious to know who that amazing person is! I want to personally thank them.

I was telling everybody at Saguaro Man this weekend about what happens when you put restricted items in the porto's.

It seemed to make the biggest impression when they find out that it can stop the pumping process! 8)
