You need a bike, sunscreen, bottled water, some warm clothes, it gets cold on the Playa, a tent, a chair, some food, clothing is optional. make sure to see the fashion show and the opera. Fuck!!! I'm not doing anything else? It is worth the drive.

Hey, I was there in '99 too! As well as '94, '95, and '96. In fact my music project performed there in '96. Those photos from '99 look positively quaint compared to what's been going on recently. Expect 45 to 50 thousand people. Reverend Al (ex head-honcho of the LA Cacophony Society) said in '96 that Burning Man was not fun for them anymore because they were no longer allowed to use dynamite in their performances. I have to agree that it ain't what it used to be, but given the right mindset it is still a great time. Nevertheless, if I ever go again, it will only be with an RV.

I went in 1999 and had a blast! My friend and I had one tent for ourselves, and
one tent just for our costumes and props. We decorated our bikes which were really
necessary for covering great distances on the playa. I do recall hooking up with
some tiki people drinking cocktails....

I survived my first Burning Man with a record number of more than 48,000 folks, extreme weather conditions including white outs that lasted for hours with zero visibility and massive destruction to the tents and shelters and temperatures during the day of over 100. The evenings were unusually warm and gorgeous. The photos don't do it justice. The Playa comes to life at night completely lit up with art cars and fire effects every where. It is completely indescribable, like nothing you can imagine and surreal. I had a blast. Anyone up for a TC camp next year?

Temple of Foregiveness (This was really moving and somber- Burners made tributes and wrote messages to their loved ones that were deceased. It was burned down on Sun. night)

Homouroboros - At night it appeared snakes were climbing down and grabbing the monkeys. It was powered by folks riding the stationary bikes set up around it.

Freedom Ride 700+ women letting it all hang out



Crude Awaking - Unbelievable - the metal sculptures were lit at night inside with fire breathing out of their hands and groins etc. This was burned down on Sat. night

a friend's art car

Dayum girlfriend...thanks for those pictures. Looks like you had a great time. I have wanted to go to this event for years. I am a wuuus, so would have to do an RV and my electric GEM to get around. I have vacations planned for the next couple of years, but could do this in 2010....seriously.

Thanks Vamp, I think a TC theme camp would be a lot fun. Keep it in mind.

The very first theme camp at Burning Man was in fact Tiki Camp which when the gig first moved from the beach to the outskirts of Gerlach was quite the oasis.

This was before there were any comercial ventures there, and everyting was free...it was pretty sweet.
