Burning Man

Has anyone ever been to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada??? I am so intrigued in this festival! I want to go so bad, but i don't know anyone who has gone, so I dont really know what I'd be getting myself into!

Never been but have been wanting to go. Been semi looking at it over the years. It seems to have gone from a free freak show circus to a commercial freak show circus. My son told me the people line up for miles going to it. I think they have paid admission now. I have always wanted to rent an RV and go. My 2 sons are on board. I plan to one day. But it would be interesting to hear from someone who has been recently.

I think admission is $380 now. Seems steep, but it could be worth it! It'd definitely be a good time. I was thinking of pulling a small pop up camper with the Jeep. Ohio is a long long drive though!
Youtube has a lot of cool videos from the Burn, its what got me wanting to go so badly!

A friend goes almost every year - I understand that he has quite a camp. You bring what you need to survive. No cash - you trade ... so bring trading stuff. The police do patrol and will give tickets if you are stupidly open about the same things you would not do in town. I'd say you need to be pretty open minded to get the most from this festival .... Tons of pictures on the internet - do it!!

Thats awesome! Thanks! Ask your friend if they'd have any advice for a virgin who ,most likely, will be going solo! Getting old and not many of my friends can justify taking a week off of work to go camp in the middle of the Nevada desert! I am sociable and don't think it'd take me anytime to make friends while there.

I saw an episode of Malcolm in the Middle where they went to Burning Man. Kinda made me want to go, but that was 6 years ago haha

Ive been twice. Once several years ago when it was MUCH less commercial and MUCH less regulated. It was quite an eye opening experience.
The last time I went (2 years ago), it was SO commercial that the experience was nothing like the first time.
If you have never gone before, and dont know what it used to be, this will still be quite interesting for you.
