In two weeks today, I’ll be in San Francisco preparing for my second Burning Man adventure.
I’m so excited about this holiday for a couple of reasons. Firstly, work has been a big fat pile of poo and I need a break. Secondly, the Burning Man experience will be so different with a bunch of friends that I know and also being single. Not that I’m focusing on slutting it up but if I feel like it, this time I can and will. I know it’s all going to rush by in a blur of tutus, onesies, nudity and madness and then I will take myself off to Hawaii to recover in sunshine, peace and quiet.
Last night, 6 of us from our group had a couple of drinks and the energy was quite high. We started planning this so long ago now and it felt like it would never happen but here we are. We did talk about things that they have reservations about like the nude pub crawl bike ride which is a lot of fun, and they are keen to do, but they are wary of cameras and ending up on the internet. The thing about Burning Man is that it’s a place full of craziness along with cameras. If you are going to be nude or doing something fun and interesting you can almost guarantee there will be photos on the internet of it somewhere. They won’t be malicious or gratuitous but they’ll be there so if you are getting your gear off and don’t want to get yourself in trouble, keep your goggles on and a bandanna over your face or something.
