The reporting seemed uninformed, and frankly, a little strange. Anyhoo, this will be my first journey to Burning Man, and I have been feverishly reading EPlaya and trying to educate myself. My beautiful wife, who has no interest in attending, appears to have gotten a little tired of my new-found obsession.

Worse, collapsing on deep playa in a drunken stupor is now considered "parking", unless one's limbs (both upper and lower) are splayed less than 2.5 feet each (edge to edge).
Damn you, BMorg! I had such plans . . .

It's become a joke in our relationship where I'll start telling a story, and he'll stop me and tell me to start it properly: "This one time, at Burning Man...."

Ah! You might like the Open Discussion forum. Look for it on the main ePlaya page. It's toward the bottom. Or jump to it here:
There is "The Bar" thread:
The Bar, Volume #4
(Please note that, as an ongoing thread, that will not remain the most current page for long.) There are actually two current Bar threads. People go to the Bar to talk about what kind of day they're having, socialize, wish each other Happy Birthday, etc.
There is the Time for a Happy Thread thread. This is for glorying in good news.
There's the Fuck! thread. That's for venting about real-life troubles (usually the biggest troubles) and commiserating. It is customary to begin one's post with profanity.
There's also the Dammit, Bill! thread. That's for minor troubles that feel out of place in the Fuck! thread.
Anyway--that'll get you started. There's lots to look at under Open Discussion.
If you're ever wondering where to post something, please feel free to PM me or one of the other mods. We also sometimes move new threads into the right forums if they're in a less than optimal spot.
