Burning Man - A Week of Radical Self Expression

'Burning Man is an Adult Playland', a 29-Hour a day party for a week; A Globally Charged Community in the desert of Northern Nevada.

'You can vacation in say Jamaica and see things that millions have seen before you and millions will see after you...Or you can trek yourself & stuff to BRC and see things that will only be available for one week to see'

Here is an interesting look back at what Burning Man has meant to me and the lessons I have learned each year...

2000 >> 2001 >> 2002 >> 2003 >> 2004 >> 2005 >> 2006 >> 2007 >> 2008 
2009 >> 2010 >> 2011 >> 2012 >> 2013  >>  2014 >>  2015 >> 2016 >> 2017

2002 the stage had been set for me Pre-Playa as the relationship with Theresa was disintegrating, the Playa had me facing issues about schedules and what it means to care about a partner or friend regardless of involvement. I as well took the Lead role as Camp Daddy that year and found the outpouring of gratitude for my efforts from my fellow campers to be one of the most awesome experiences I have ever had. I had found myself being much more comfortable around Gay or Bi men that year and even found myself having some of the best friendships and conversations with some of them.

Quite a shock to a guy who is 100% hetero...

What lessons did you learn from Burning Man & the Playa in 2002?
