This isn't an on-playa experience, but it was so cute I had to share. The background info: My parents are both 75 and pretty conservative, yet they love hearing about Burning Man. They jokingly call it "Drug Camp." I always wonder how much of what I tell them is actually digested, and how much goes out into the ether. My family celebrates Christmas a week early, so this was the text of the card I got from them today....
Dear Cliff (my playa name,)
We had no doubt that you would get your very important ticket. To keep the celebration going, we are gifting you 25,000 reward miles to cover your airfare to Drug Camp. Please use the extra funds to burn a little brighter and warm those around you.

How awesome is that? Apparently they have been listening and learning!
