I'm going to Burning Man for the first time this year.

I'll be at 7:30 & A, part of the "Astral Photo Project" camp. I'm making a list of where people I'll know will be... let me know where you'll be if you're going.

Aw man, the year I can't go because I have an immigration interview + emergency moving into another apartment going on... I'm sad, and so is bmused for whom it would have been the 7th burn. AGH ! Last year rocked. I hope the weather got better on the playa - last I heard it was super dry (aka megadusty) and super windy.

Awesome, Brad! Unfortunately I won't be there this year: I'm currently in New Zealand and we are having our own little celebration for those of us Burners in the southern hemisphere not heading over this year: "Melting Man" - wherein we build a snowman, set him on fire and dance around a lot, then go snowboarding the next day! ^_^

I've read a ton of warnings about the dust this year, so make sure you take good non-vented goggles and a proper respiratory mask with spare filters [particulare type], lots of moisturizing eyedrops and saline nose spray I've also seen highly recommended.

Best of luck,

The Aussie who was in town last year for Burning Man :)
