I love that Tumblr!

The "Decorating Your Camp" .gif is one of my favorites. :lol:

Hey guys, my name's Steve. Twenty-eight year old unemployed university grad etc etc. Never been to Burning Man before. Hell, never even been to a desert! I'm pretty determined to go this year, but I haven't actually taken the plunge and bought my plane and Playa tickets yet. Before I do that I wanna see if I can arrange a ride to and from Reno (or Southern Ontario) ahead of time, and if I can get myself in with a camp for company and to learn the ropes. It would suck to travel all that way and end up stuck in Reno or alone at BRC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've done a lot of reading and get the whole Burning Man = participation thing, so if you have room for a total noob then I will contribute (somehow).




when unemployed newb canadians come on and monopolize the board because its just so fresh and new they dont even realize what douche nozzles they are while doing it, but the rest of the board who are basically, too nice to say so. just sit back and generally ignore it.


i dont.

I would like to speak about a dark underbelly of Burning Man and a problem that has plagued us for years

Aww, that's cute. You were perturbed enough to actually bother going through the time and effort to dig up a post (which is three years old by the way) just to go after lil' ol' me? I'm touched. :roll:

*Pours Schtev a drink*

Being Simonized can be hard on a being. But look how shiny you are now.
Worry is a misuse of imagination

She had blue skin, And so did he.
He kept it hid And so did she.
They searched for blue Their whole life through,
Then passed right by- And never knew.”
