A few Burning Man pics

The following are a few pics from BM. I think a few of y'all were curious about it. I'm actually really bad about taking them myself so most are poached off my friend's FB.

If you're ever curious about the event I highly recommend checking it out. This one is more than just a party. Workshops. Soooo much learning occurs. Radical self reliance. Everything needed for a week must be brought. No water fill up stations, food vendors ect.



My pride and joy. My best friend and I built this from scratch last year.


Another angle. We built the partially covered dome in the background for our friends






The man goes BOOM!!!


Well that's all for now. I can throw a few more up if there's interest.

why so much importance on self-reliance? i thought burning man was about being one big community together in the desert? i thought hippies were all about interconnection and shit?

It's one of the ten principals Burning Man: What is Burning Man?: Ten Principles

What I enjoy about the event is that it's a place to challenge yourself. You have to think of every aspect of your day for a week and make sure you have what is needed. The only two items sold are ice and coffee. [Bringing enough ice for a week would be a serious burden]. I don't really care much about the coffee for sale but I suppose it's good all the proceeds go to chairity.
The need to survive creates a nice sense of community and it's a ton of fun to ride around and see what inventive ways people have come up with to make their stay comforatable.
And yes there is a lot of teamwork involved. There's a saying "the playa provides" aka you can walk around and say I need x tool and probably find one within 5 min. The gifting culture is huge as well. This year I was out far from my camp (it's fucking huge at least 20 min bike ride from one side to another) and was out of food got lucky and happened to ride by a camp giving out hot dogs.

Definitely a lot of teaching goes on. For example, we had some Canadians neighbors in a RV. I noticed this guy trying to pound 3ft sections of rebar into the ground using a smaller hammer. I went over and lent him our mallet. Later we showed them proper knots to tie down their shade structure.

Another aspect of the self reliance I enjoy is that it made me a much more confident person. I realized if I fill my backpack and bike basket up with supplies I can be out dancing/ exploring for very long periods.




@Fender. The police was making some news initially. Many people arrive early to start building the theme camps using special tickets so at that point police to participant ratio is pretty low and then once all 70,000 ppl showed up it wasn't really a problem.
This is a pretty cool article about police interaction

A cousin of mine who is the same age, lives in CA went to this year and last year I believe. I anticipate the year that I am able to go... (maybe 2014!?! I hope sooo ) Only issues I have in preparation for going myself, is needing to bring a bicycle, totally couldn't do it all on foot... and wanting to bring my camera with the dust factor concerns me.

I went on a white-water rafting excursion thing where you camped along the riverside in Utah for 3 nights/4 days with minimal necessities (although, the luxury of cooked meals and food was part of the 'package') but no electricity or running water, obviously.
But, I just LOVED camping out in that desert-ous landscape; dry heat is my friend... humidity is what really, really gets to me.

On a similar note, for more than the past 5 years, I have enjoyed camping at what is called a Rendezvous. It's essentially a camp gathering just the same but with a different crowd of peoples... (think of a Time Period gathering/celebration, some re-enactors, some natives: 1780's to 1860's French fur traders, Voyageurs and Indians, kind of like the Renaissance Festival... but take out the overload headache of tourists and customers; sometimes grade school classes come during the day for a field trip, which is awesome to be a part of, if you're dressed up in your "time era clothing")

It can be some real, rugged camping, especially depending on the weather how it can be in Minnesota; frost overnight or scalding humidity (A friend of ours who has his own frybread spiced sausage hotdog ["Prairie Dogs"] stand and had a laser temperature gun with... he took the temp. of the roof of the canvas tent on the hottest day, it said 129 degrees F)-- But it's day and night camping with canvas tents you set up yourself or one pole tents (teepees), they have everything like bow and arrow contests, tomahawks/hatchet throwing contests, prizes to win and raffles, fire arms, cannons, fur trading, pottery, candles, glass beads and jewelry, handmade items, cast iron skillets, home cooked food, cooking contests, music and drink... all that.
One year the cooking contest had a "special ingredient" that everyone was required to use--- turned out to be a LIVE Pheasant. We made a really bomb pheasant vegetable stew, didn't win but it was fuckin' delicious anyway.

Going to Rendezvous makes me feel at home... and gives that "slap back to reality, wow I'm so gritty and dirty" feeling upon leaving and returning back to your house, too...
I think they're worth a visit (and photo opportunities if you're a photographer) if you ever hear of one in your area, and are even more of a valuable experience if you get the chance to STAY and camp overnight during one for a few days. Really easy way to make genuine friends who have a lot of knowledge and skills, some are artisans in their own craft.

These pics aren't of my own but show what you are likely to see and experience at a Rendezvous...







Edit: ^^^I think I may actually know the tall bearded guy in the middle back wearing all the leather
