Burning man
Last night I dreamed of fire and stone and canyons of thorns growing in the desert, building from a primeval chaos unrequited in humanity. I was a man of import, a man of mortared destiny - eternal and knowing, unrelenting. In the chill of setting sun, I clothed myself in rope to hide my skin and humanity. Indecent. Irrevocable motion - I danced with a bull-whip taken from a cache of sanctified love. I snapped through bonfires and bayed at the moon.

It was visceral. Animal. "Torn, torn, torn." Crack! "Torn, torn, torn." Crack!

I woke in a heat sweat with burning in my eyes. Pupils dilated.
I'd returned with a layer of hell in my hand.
I will not let it go.

That would be nice, yes. Difficult though. Need to prep for desert survival.

Doable.

We'll have to look into it. It's pretty Darwininan out there, with those crazy peoples. :)

Still very doable.

'Member. I have family that lives in crazy Mormon survival country. We could probably have them get us anything we need fairly cheap.

True. Think they'd still do it if they knew where we were trying to go?

Dunno. Don't much care.

Tell them after we borrow guns? ;)

Guns?

So they don't have them when we tell them where we're going... duh!

I'm sure we could. It would be very interesting, I'm sure.

I am thinking of going there next year....A friend of mine is high up in the Playa Cruiser Rangers kinda one of the medic patrol groups for Burning man from WA. It has always sounded interesting but it might be difficult to get the time off....
