How was Burning Man??

I love that vid!  I have been very fortunate to find a group of like minded folks at the Burn.  Our camp consisted of 49 friendly folks in a great setting.  Our RV's circled the camp which housed our awesome art car the Bioluminesent Slug, a fire pit and canopies with netting to keep the dust out.  We spent our days touring the playa, heading to parties, dancing to the hottest DJ's on the planet and dodging dust storms.  Each night we had a group dinner that was filled with great food and conversation.  The weather was one of the best in recent years.  The morning were usually cloud covered, falling to blue skies and then a bit of wind and dust in the afternoon.  The evening were spectacular with mild temps and no wind.  When you enter the playa at night you are blown away by all the LED lights on the people, the art cars and the bikes.  Like Vegas on steroids.  On the night of the burn, we headed to the playa.  Everything was perfect.  As soon as the sunset, the wind gods came alive with an amazing dust storm and violent winds.  After 30 minutes, it began to mellow and the burn was on.  Pretty amazing indeed.  On our way out, we got caught in a 8+ hour delay at the gate.  Someone was lost so they closed the gate.  Took about 15 hours to get home.  If you are thinking about joining the tribes next year, I would say go and have the metamorphosis of your life!
