Burning Man

I'm sure you've heard of it. I was surfing around and came across an app for it for free. After looking at the app for an hour or so, I went to the web site. Apparently it just happened.

This event while weird lasts 7 days on a desert plain in Nevada. You take in everything you need to survive, live, thrive, and party. There are some "first timers" notes and supply lists that read kinda odd, but make some sense for the environment. (don't agree with the fire arm one tho')

I'm thinking of going next year. That would give me a year to prepare mentally, physically, and financially for a week long, day and night party survival experience.

Anyone want to join me? Plenty of time to decide. [B-)]


  1. My friend Damien does Burning Man. I'm not sure if he's been able to the past few years since he joined a band that pretty much ALWAYS has gigs that conflict, but he's been doing it for years and loves it. He's on my Facebook friends list if you want to "add" him and pick his brain. :)

  2. Hi Astrea, maybe you could pick his brain for us and let us know what you find out. :-)

    I am kinda curious about the day and night time conditions there. Burning hot to freezing cold, high winds, sand...All kinds of fun!!

  3. Kevin (Dorothy's hubby) went this year. While it might be useful for you from a survival point of view, to most people it is a one week camping party. Burning man becomes a functional city for the week with municipalities like a fire department, as needed medical attention, and addresses.

    It would be good for you to talk to some burners (people who have this as a major part of their lives, there are a lot of them) to get a sense of what the atmosphere is like. I haven't heard them talking about the high winds, the heat, the cold, only about how everything you have with you will get covered in playa dust and will never be clean again. To me that says that the physical conditions are the least of there experienced.
