    Been three times. The first time in particular changed my life. I had no idea humans could live in the way they do at Burning Man. It is a complete 180 of everything you know and love in life... It is pretty amazing to see if you consider yourself even remotely free spirited...

    Mostly because I've been 3 times and I feel like I have bigger fish to fry, not sure I would go again today versus going to Mexico or something like that, but getting there and back on a moto with all the required amenities (bike and all) would be a fun challenge to attempt...

    WHO'S THERE?


    JAY


    JAY WHO?


    JAY WHO RAY! DAT'S WHO. :lol3


    Where are you amigo? Got me interested ...... I've enjoyed it so far.

    Sorry about the ex. I can see where you miss her.

    Also sorry that the mods pruned the pic of her in the VW bus. Glad I beat them to it. That was nice ......

    Are you a nurse in a psych ward?
    If so, it seems that BM would sorta' be like another day at work.
    I've got an amigo in AZ that does that.
    If his stories are any indication, it sounds like quite an interesting job! :huh


    Patiently waiting for the next installment! :D

    burning man has really turned into something with tickets and such - when I was in college at UCSD in the late 80's I drove my then 4 speed sportster out into the desert to what was an early burning man thing which at that time was basically a bonfire in the desert with patchouli oil scented shoeless folks - we went out looked around and kept going

    now if there had been "mermaids" we probably would have stayed, now on with the report:clap
