Is this Burning Man? Has anyone gone?  Is it really like this?

  1. Yes that sure is Burning Man, Scott. Beautiful Black Rock City, Nevada. I have been eight times over 11 years and am planning my ninth trip for this year. Its indescribable really, everything you may have heard or imagined only, much much more. Yes, there are naked people. Yes, there is lots of sex and art and performance. Only one way to really get a handle on it and that is to go. Its not easy. it is worth it.

  2. Yep, that's the playa all right. But those two are mighty clean. They've obviously just arrived ahead of any dust storms OR they have major resources and are living out of an RV. You can stay relatively clean, but there is always some dust. Also, if they were headed out to explore or work, they would have more gear with them, i.e. goggles, scarves, hats, probably at least shorts or a sarong. The playa is huge and you need to be prepared before setting out. Storms come up quickly. Seven burns since '01. And it does take a lot of planning to do it well.

  5. I can't wait to go this year. Kinda nervous and scared at the same time but so so so excited. I'll be one of those lunatics running behind the water truck naked having a shower.

  6. From what I hear its a bunch of tree huggers, smoking pot and getting filthy in the desert. Running around naked without a shower and no electricity. Imagine the body odor? Not exactly my idea of utopia, lol.

  7. Anon 6:46; There are a wide variety of people there, most of whom bathe --motor homes have showers, and outdoor showers abound for those in tents. People don't want to be filthy!

    Yeah, there are lots of people smoking pot. That vast majority of people are *not* naked. I don't know if I'd call all the people tree-huggers... most people there are just very friendly and open-minded... based on how quickly you judge without having done any research, you'd have to loosen up quite a bit before you were able to enjoy it.

  8. And "no electricity"? Where are you getting your info? Haven't you ever seen night shots of Burning Man? Lights all over! Huge parties and light shows with thumping bass, all require electricity. See, people bring this technology called "generators" it must be too new for you to have heard about. lol
