being in reno we see alot of burners. this year i have seen more than ever. going out to get loaded. trip on countless things. strip and run wild. pretty much forget your inhibitions and morals. compounding dirt, sand and alkali talc layers for a whole week. breathing all the fresh air of 35,000 burners with out showers, just to light a fire.
well after thinking about all these things and more.... the wife and i decided we are going in 2007. cant wait. wife is already stocking up on glow sticks.:D
anyone else go to burning man. how was it. what was your fav theam camp. looking to find a good fun non-child camp for our first burn.:D

yea it is something else. it draws people from around the world. maybe we can all start our own theam camp at 07. i was thinking of "Booze Clues". people could follow the clues to get shots of booze.

Don't really understand what it's about. It looks like a bunch of hippys building useless things. Some of the things were cool.

it is what you make of it. there are normal people there to, but there boring to video.

It is a bunch of people who want to get together to smoke pot, drink beer, drink absenth (sp?) and do things that a high school person would do but didn't have the moeny to do then. As said above it is a bunch of hippies that started it and now it is a bunch of people who want to be hippies but are to attached to material things to let go completely and this is a way to show that they could if they wanted to.
I left that life behind me in HS and now I wouldn't do anything like it, but have fun and enjoy yourselves. It should be a killer time for you!

allot of the people that go there are like that, but not everyone. i my self don’t need that style of life. yet i can still go, have a good time and meet lots of great people. for me it will be a escape from my day to day life. it will be a chance to experience something many people in the world never will. like i said, it is what you want it to be. ever go to a concert or a rave. maybe a dead concert or something like gathering of the vibes. how about a football or basketball game. tell me threes nobody using any of these entertainments for parting. sure there are allot of drugs and alcohol, but there is a whole lot more to these events then getting smashed. don’t knock it till you try it.

He speaks the truth, you can go to a party just to watch the drunk people..and not touch a drink. lol.

I've read the website and the posts here and I still don't get it. I'm an intelligent guy and catch on to things pretty quick, but this I'm just not understanding the purpose.
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.
I guess when they put it like that they mean it.

I have been to the burning man....in college (1998 - it rained and that made it little sucky). It has changed since I have gone though. It was first just a lot of pot, and now it has evolved to many other things that can make it unsafe...just like you said. Anyone can go to it and have fun. I have been to many rave but I do not use drugs but I still enjoy myself. It is really a trip to see all the different things that people do! You should have a great time. I hope you get your tickets!
