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.
I'm at 2:00 and Esplanade, part of Opulent Temple.
4 and arctic Mumbleville sub camp Bubble tea!
i'll be in youngstown, ohio not being a hippie.

pack extra dust masks. some of the white outs have been lasting for hours. and extra tie-downs since the winds are crazy this year.
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 :)
