An amigo that we met in Mexico, Jamaica Jerry was on Facebook and I saw he was heading to Burning Man. One day we will go to Burning Man! It sound so fun, and crazy but you really have to know what your doing and be prepared and have the tix, which are expensive $200 and sell out quickly!! (This year they sold out before the event! )
I've been hearing about it for a long time now, 4 or 5 years(it's actually been happening 25 years) and I must admit I am very curious. I've seen some incredible photography. I saw an awesome set of photos a while back but can't find the link.
If you haven't heard about Burning Man, here are some links and videos for you. Definitely read the history of Burning Man, super interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_Man

Quoted from Video "The Twitterverse is on fire on this, the first day of The Burning Man festival. The weeklong annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada is returning for its 25th year and is described by followers as an experiment in radical self-expression and radical self-reliance. The ?Burners? immerse themselves in artwork and revelry and refuse cash transactions, relying instead on gifting. But if this utopian experiment is calling to your inner hippie, youapos;re out of luck. For the first time, the Burning Man festival capped attendance at 50,000, and it has been sold out for over a month."
