And when the winds came, they were 200 miles an hour, and Burning Man was really about the week-long walk back to your horseless carriage, if it was still there. And we liked it. WE LOVED IT.

Well, if you went all the way back into your tribal roots, your ancestors would probably say:

"Everything looks great here, carry on."
