    I am heading to the Burning Man festival for the first time later this month (going to photograph it--always heard it is amazing!)

    Has anyone on here been to a Burn yet? Any advice for little ol' me?

    Thanks!

    Burning Man is an absolute blast.

    What camp will you be in?

    Bring lots of gifts!

    Go with the flow and enjoy!

    Glad you had a great time.

    One of the excellent side benefits is:

    Burning man is a fantastic way to scare the bejesus out of republicans;->

    Bring a trailer to camp in. I have seen buildings/tents totally flattened in 60 mph wind storms at night. Mud so deep I thought i'd never be able to get back to my camp at night. And days with dust storms so bad you couldn't go outside without wrapping a towel around your head. The shits houses are unbelieivable.....ever see a 8 ft. high pile of shit? Bring you own "facilites"

    yes, we had the 50-60 mph winds! (thankfully we had 12" rebar stakes)

    porta potties were kept up pretty good in our area (cleaned out 3x daily at least)

    ...but i think a motorhome would be a nice semi-luxury, dust still gets into EVERYTHING!

    but oh, it was sooooo worth it
