Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.

My forth year on the playa, and still loving it! This year, the weather and playa conditions were the best I have ever seen them, and the art was just as awe inspiring as ever. Unfortunately, I ended up sick with a cold mid-week, and had to sleep through several events. Bummer! However, my fever broke by weeks end and I had more energy than ever to play hard for the burns. Yeah! Instead of joining a camp, Nick, Chris, and I created our own small camp.
