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...

2015 – Reaching the Pinnacle
This will be my 16th trip to Black Rock City. It is not just the trip to the desert; it is the year-round events and the thousands of people I have met and now consider part of my family that make this the journey of a lifetime. I cannot image my life without Burning Man; major kudos to my life partner WildChild for keeping up with the pace.

Playa Lessons Learned…

  • 2015 will be my 16th Burn & 14th serving as Camp Daddy, Benevolent Dictator of PolyParadise.

  • Vaguebooking: the act of inciting someone to a response from a comment you have made and have no attachment to, no matter how true it is.

  • I've grown through the decisions I've had to make because of the stupidity of individuals.

  • Burning Man means something different to everyone, but to me it's about transformation. The Man Burns because everyone Burns. No matter who you were when you came here, you go away different. If you survive the fire, what's left is stronger...
