Would you ever stop going to Burning Man once you've gone the first time?

So far I have gone every other year. One year because I couldn't afford it and the other because my kid started kindergarden the same week.
At the same time though I would have gone both of those years if things had been different.

Welcome! I've missed two years as well, though I'm not that upset about 2000. Heard the weather sucked.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Thanks for taking the time to take the poll and welcoming me :)

This event (if it's even fair to call it just an event), feels like a modern day right of passage for returning to being human. It feels like many people living today have lost sight of life itself and have become enslaved or clouded by the system. Warms my soul to know there are still those out there who put up with such conditions to return to our core being.

It has nothing to to with burning man, but may shed some light.

Welcome!

I'm curious. Does "salutations" pretty much come from Charlotte's Web? I mean in the modern usage.

Last year was my first year, I thought it was OK and don't know if I'll go again this year. I hope to.

The same money, time and painintheassness could go towards an international burn - or several mortgage payments.
