The current plan is to leave on Sunday (8/24) at 1:00 p.m, and return on Monday (9/1), with a possible stayover in Reno.

I’ll be camping with the pseudofeds of the playagon at 9:30 and Esplanade.

If you’d like to meet up, let me know where you will be camping! I’d love to meet up with you I’m there.

50 foot dome, huh?

Unless there's folks going up early to put that sucker up, I have a rough idea of what you'll be doing when you get there. Grin. Hope you're handy with a wrench and cool with heights!

Have a blast!

Oh, yeah: This morning's weird dream involved a flock of bird-cat hybrids and a bunch of hippies singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" in the twilight, and I woke up thinking "huh, maybe I do miss Burning Man."

I'm curious, if you don't mind, what made you decide to go? I assume this is your first trip.

Naked chicks!

As you've probably observed, I have a longstanding interest in portable dwellings. Burning Man is the largest gathering of such structures that I'm aware of, so I wanted to get a look at them first hand.

Also, a lot of my friends have gone, and speak highly of the experience. So I thought I'd give it a try.

Hey, I live in Reno. I've never been to Burning Man though.
