Burning Man!

I’ve decided to finally take part of Burning Man. This will be the year, and it might just be the beginning of something that repeats yearly, or it might be something I do once and I get to say “I was there”. We’ll see.
I first heard of Burning Man when I was an exchange student, in 1999-2000. My counselor/liaison Nicole was a burner at the time ( and probably still is, I wonder if I’ll see her among the masses! ), and she told me a little bit about it, and it sounded really awesome. Of course, I was 17 at the time, so rumors of drunken naked people and a plethora of drugs were really attractive at the time.

I’ll be buying my ticket shortly, at the Melting Pot. It’ll be a whopping almost $300, but I’ve been saving up for this, and every year I’ve chickened out because it was a lot of money. But now I’ve decided to say fuck it, and go for it. I hear it’s worth it, and I don’t want to wonder what I’ve been missing anymore.

If you don’t know what Burning Man is, I can’t explain it yet. But I hear that even people who’ve been there for years and years still can’t explain it, that his why I like this quote from the FAQ: “Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.” Whoa, deep! :downs:
There’s always an entry in the trusty WikiPedia, so read up over there if you’re interested, and maybe I’ll see you there!
