Thank You for your wise consideration of my dilemma. Good points, but "we also know no one else would try it, knowing it exists". It could be a mysterious entrance so nobody knew about it, except the enlightened few, of course.
true, it "could" be mysterious.....but, it's not. People are spotted several times per burn, trying that. There is virtually no direction or procedure, for cutting across, sneaking in, or saving time, that has not been tried. And, I am not accusing you of any of the above, not at all. Just sayin, if you try something like that, good chance, it'll not work.
Those intellectual and attractive perimeter folks, are like a pack of hell hound Rottweilers. And, their leaders, are pure rabid intensity.
Kind and intelligent folk, always willing to listen, but, screw with them, or try to fool them, and all that pent up sexual energy will be painted upon your personage, (not necessarily with a brush, roller or sponge), and perhaps, not in a loving way.
Larceny, is an individual choice, and gamble, in that arena.
"One might imagine, in the light of a "spiritual route".......folks of said spirit, would not necessarily want the "easiest" route for the end, but, be willing to accept the penance of extra effort, and the satisfaction therein. Flagellation may well help with this." I think you are suggesting I view the line is sort of a zen purgatory, fair enough.
yeah, just sayin, the struggle, and hardship you willingly accept, it getting to said "spot", is a choice. And, to then, find the easiest/quickest way, to end this pilgrimage, of sorts, may be counter productive to the willing suffrage already experienced.
However, there must be a prohibition on flagellating while driving, especially in Nevada. I am accustomed to using the same hand for both activities. Regardless, with your permission, I will post your very eloquent advice on my dashboard as a reminder of of the dichotomy inherent in one's transcendence to Burning Man.
Flagellation can take many forms, grasshopper. and, all are not sexual. you, must decide your path to enlightenment. I'd have to imagine, "laws of the state" in that context, truthfully, are not part of your consideration.
But, I'm left to wonder whether a bit of larceny isn't good for the soul and when sensibly executed may be a higher calling than strict conformity. An ageless conflict of man, perhaps especially Burners. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again, hope we can share a bowl of beans sometime.
As with all endeavors, of spirit, enlightenment, or just "fucking off", it's usually the journey, which creates the outcome, and gives the best lesson.
I will hope to hear of your adventure, and, perhaps, be part of it.
