Carry a water bottle everywhere.
Worship the elements.
Have my goblet, always.
Never MOOP.
Play with fire.
Smile at randoms.
Position myself upwind.
Wear illumination.
Pack lightly, and well.
Dance to the music in my head.
Wear practical shoes, for climbing.
Create.

Thank you, Burning Man. :lol: 8) :twisted: :mrgreen: :D

Have exactly 17 dollars in my savings account.
Have a Playafied truck that smells like Playa whenever I turn on the AC. (I actually like the smell)
Can pack and be ready to leave for a 2 day camping trip in about 10 minutes.
Own more ice chests than all my neighbors, combined.
Don't stress at work nearly as much as I used to before TTITD.

No longer wear a watch. I lost my watch on the Playa in 2009 and said hell with it. I have a clock on my phone, my computer, home, truck, and office. Why should I wear a watch? I also returned to creating art after my first burn in 2009.
