12:55pm: Hey, it’s Thursday. Yes, we are here.

We woke up too early. We took the dog outside. We fed the dog.
We took the dog outside. We went back to bed.
The housekeeper came and worked a half day… kinda.
We got the newspapers and the mail. We took the dog outside again.
We’ve been chillin’ in the Home Office all day.

1:45pm: Really taking the day off today…..

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ

8:30pm: We just woke up from a nap with the dog. We took the dog outside.
We went to the bank and the post office and the gas station today.
We went to the market, and parked, but there were TOO MANY PEOPLE inside.
We looked at all the cars in the parking lot, and then just drove home again.
The dog went outside earlier. And we fed the dog. And he went outside.
And then we fell asleep for an hour or so.
We haven’t eaten…. kinda. We ate two fried chicken drumsticks at 5:00pm.

And JoshWillTravel will not be traveling next week.
WE CANCELLED OUR LAS VEGAS RESERVATIONS THIS MORNING.
We had booked Three COMP nights at The Mirage Hotel & Casino (MGM MLife)
with a $50 food credit and $20 FREE play for the week after Labor Day.
We booked it once we were Fully Vaccinated, before the Delta Variant Surge,
and we were really looking forward to going…. fucking CoronaVirus.
We called and waited ON HOLD (w/really bad muzak) for an Reservation Specialist
and we tried to reschedule for October or November,
but because the “offer had expired” we just cancelled it. Just a BIG BUMMER.
We will rebook when (or if) it is safe to travel and be in public spaces again.
This was supposed to be our first vacation trip in 18 months, but there are
TOO MANY UNMASKED AND UNVACCINATED PEOPLE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW.
And we still thought about going, not cancelling, but it just doesn’t feel safe to go.
We are not the only one….. there were thousands of cancellations in the last week.

Mirage_las_vegas

The Mirage Hotel and Volcano – Las Vegas, Nevada

And it’s also why we didn’t make travel plans for “Not Burning Man 2021” this week.
But a lot of people went – there are thousands of campers in the Black Rock Desert!
We have been watching the LiveStream from The Playa and it look really wild and fun….
But there’s still a CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC and it is not socially responsible to go.
Also, there is NO INFRASTRUCTURE (port-a-potties, medical services, etc.)
and it just isn’t safe to be “socializing” with (masked or unmasked) strangers.
Screen Shot 2021-09-04 at 09.56.56 copy

 

WE TOOK AN AFTERNOON TRIP IN OUR AUTOMOBILE.
We got dressed and went out of the house.
We visited a friend (in-person) in his backyard.
It was HOT but beautiful and rewarding…. good deed of the day.
Always good to help a friend out.
And then we drove home, and there was a lot of traffic,
so we got back to the Home Office and took the dogs outside.
The dogs got fed. And we declined another party invitation.
NO! WE ARE NOT EATING AND DRINKING WITH STRANGERS!
WE ARE NOT EATING AND DRINKING WITH FAMILY AT THIS POINT!
SO FUCKING STUPID TO HAVE PARTIES OR ANY KIND OF GATHERING!
THE DELTA VARIANT IS REAL and it might kill you, even vaccinated people.

shana-tova

Happy New Year 5782!

11:00pm: Happy Friday! Good Shabbos! Friday Night Fun?
We didn’t eat all day. And we are maybe hungry. If we eat, we will tear it up.
And we will eat eventually before dawn. Probably soon.
We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dog and thinking about food.

Los Angeles Dodgers v. San Francisco Giants
Tied at 2-2 in the bottom of the 11th Inning at 11:10pm PST…..
and now the bases are loaded with all the pressure on the pitcher.
Ball – Foul Ball – Steee-rike – Ball (blocked by the catcher): 2 and 2.
Infield hit and fielded by the Dodgers, Force Out at Home Plate.
2 Outs, bases loaded….. will the Dodgers choke now?
AND THE DODGERS CHOKE ON THE THROW TO FIRST BASE!!!!
Infield hit and fielded by the Dodgers,
but the throw to First Base was WIDE AND HIGH…..
Did he get his toe on the bag before the runner touched? NO!!!!
GIANTS WIN 3-2 HAHAHAHAHA! (on an error on the throw)
and ~90% of the fans in the stadium weren’t wearing masks….

11:20pm GAME OVER! We made an iced espresso.
Watching the YouTube Livestream from Not Burning Man 2021 again!

3:15am:

9:01am: We’ve been up for two hours, and we should still be asleep.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We got the newspapers.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

BARK! BARK! BARK! BARK!
BARK! BARK! BARK! BARK! BARK!

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

1:50pm: Well, we really felt like sh*t this morning.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We did some morning stuff, but then went back to bed.
We woke up. We got the mail. The dogs are chillin’ in the bedroom.
The gardeners are here working on the backyard landscaping today.

NOTE: TOTALLY SUCKS waking up and your first real thought of the day is…
“FUCK, DO HAVE COVID-19?” because people aren’t being safe around you.
It can ruin your whole morning, not to mention your whole fucking day.

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

2:40pm: We made an iced espresso and retreated back to the Home Office.
We are not allowed to be mad, but WE ARE ABSOLUTELY ENRAGED.

Here’s a little rant for the supposedly intelligent people:
WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SOCIALIZING WITH STRANGERS?
WHY ARE YOU GOING TO – AND THROWING PARTIES?
WHY ARE YOU TALKING TO STRANGERS WITHOUT A MASK?
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?
WHY ARE YOU GOING TO THE MARKET?
WHY ARE YOU SHOPPING IN PUBLIC?
WHY ARE YOU TRAVELING? WHY ARE YOU MAKING PLANS?
THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER!
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK, AND YOU MIGHT DIE.
YOU CAN GET YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS SICK, AND THEY MIGHT DIE.
AFTER 18 MONTHS WHY ARE YOU BEING STUPID AND CARELESS?
THIS IS A DEADLY DISEASE. YOU MIGHT DIE.
AND THERE CAN BE LONG-TERM CONSEQUENCES IF YOU DON’T DIE.
THE DELTA VARIANT IS MORE CONTAGIOUS, MORE INFECTIOUS,
AND THERE ARE MORE VARIANTS COMING…..
THE GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC.
THE GOVERNMENT IS LYING TO YOU, THEY ARE NOT BEING HONEST.
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT.
WE HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS SINCE FEBRUARY OF 2020.
WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK! WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK!
DON’T STOP SOCIAL DISTANCING! WTF? YOU MIGHT DIE. End of rant.
Really can’t believe we have to keep saying this to “smart” people.

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

We cleaned out the refrigerator. We took out the trash and did the dishes.
We scooped some poop. And then we made an iced espresso.

We haven’t eaten all day long…. so now it’s time for food.

10:15pm: We ordered food and got dressed and went and picked it up.
We got home and the restaurant called because we dropped our wallet!
So we drove right back to the restaurant and picked it up. VERY LUCKY.

Spicy tuna cut roll and a California roll, with a Coke to drink
240048872_5078055558887636_7435143464365979318_n

We played with the dog. We chilled with the dog. And now he’s napping.

Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

3:35pm: Time is flying by today now that we are awake.
We’ve been playing with the dog and watching YouTube vids.
We should run errands. And we need to eat something.

4:25pm: We unloaded the dishwasher and we planned to get dressed….
but we kind of had an anxiety attack about going out into public.
We have been wrestling with going out and just sayin’ “FUCK IT” today.
So….. nothing is urgent.
We are going to say “Fuck It” and go eat some food now.

5:15pm: We made some food. We ate. We took the dog outside.

There was a short pursuit that we just watched after it was all over.
And watching the Livestream (at night) from the “Renegade Burn 2021”
And we took the dog outside again.

There was a cricket in the house. And it was loud.
So, we had to go on the hunt, and take care of it.

The 243rd day of the year and the LAST day of August!
And technically, alcohol is a solution.

12:56am: We just watched “The Doorman” which was a “Die Hard”
in a old hotel under construction homage…. RIP-OFF!
It was okay, Jean Reno as the bad guy holding hostages,
while a guy tries to open a safe, while a guest “Hero” in the wrong place,
at the wrong time, overcomes obstacles and kills all the bad guys.
Oh, damn …..SPOILER ALERT? It was okay.
Sometimes you roll the dice, and take your chances.

3:00am: We made a quick bite to eat.
On The Menu: Popcorn shrimp with Korean BBQ sauce

9:45am: Breaking News: Secret deal with the Taliban? Really?
Okay, we went to sleep after 5:00am and we woke up around 8:30am.
We woke up. We took the dog outside. We fed the dog. We took the dog outside.
We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

and we were going to go to the market.
But there were too many people at the market.
We drove through the parking lot, and decided to go another time.
So, we’ll do all the errands tomorrow. We drove home.
We took the dog outside. We played with the dog. We took the dog outside.

LEO has the most fundamental relationship with FIRE.
When confronted with challenges,
fire’s influence becomes obvious.
While others quit in the face of adversity,

LEOs are inspired by burning passion and enthusiasm.
Embrace fire’s positive qualities,
and always work towards achieving the goal.
Be aware of fire’s negative influence,
it can stir impatience and impulsivity.

Burning Man 2014 “Embrace” burns!

“You’re Fired.” (who said that?)

“Burn out the day! Burn out the night!
I can’t see no reason to put up a fight.
I’m living for givin’ the devil his due.
And I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you!”

The fire person has leadership qualities, dynamic passion,
and is decisive, self-confident, positive, and assertive.
The direction associated with Fire is South, and the season is summer,
which makes it the fixed element for the animal signs Snake and Horse

The Snake:
Snake_(Chinese_characters)

Fire (Chinese: ; pinyin: huǒ) is the prosper of the matter,
or the matter’s prosperity stage, the second of the Wu Xing, the Five Phases.

In the regenerative cycle of Wu Xing, wood engenders Fire
as fire is generated by rubbing together two pieces of wood
and it must be fueled by burning wood;
Fire begets earth as fire reduces everything to ashes,
which become a part of the earth again.
In the conquest cycle, water overcomes Fire
as nothing will put out a fire as quickly as water. 
Fire overcomes metal as it can only be melted and forged by flame or heat.

45505013_2528518973841320_636321614178287616_n

Fire is yang in character. Its motion is upward and its energy is convective.

Fire is associated with the positive emotion of joy
and the negative emotion of hate.

Fire is associated with Summer, the South, the planet Mars and The Sun ,
the color red (associated with extreme luck), hot weather, daylight,
and the Vermilion Bird (Zhu Que)

Organs associated with the Fire element are the Heart (yin)
and small intestine (yang), the tongue and the body’s pulse.

“There’s a fire in my belly…. but it might just be supper.”

Fire attributes are considered to be dynamism, strength, and persistence;
however, it is also connected to restlessness.
The fire element provides warmth, enthusiasm, and creativity;
however, an excess of it can bring aggression, impatience, and impulsive behavior.
In the same way, fire provides heat and warmth; however, an excess can also burn.

Shadow of a Man – Total Eclipse 2017 in Madras, Oregon

“And the flame still burns
It’s there in my soul for that unfinished goal
And the flame still burns
From a glimmer of then, it lights up again”

Ruling Planet is THE SUN
The Sun, a sphere of hot plasma, is the star at the center of the solar system.

It reflects happiness and contentment, vitality, self-confidence and success.

The Temple Burns on Sunday at Burning Man 2017:

“Burn like Fire! Burn like Fire in Cairo!”

The Fire Knife Dance began in the ancient Polynesian demonstration of ailao,
a ceremonial performance of the Samoan warrior’s display of strength with a war club.
Fire dancing aka “poi spinning” began in the Maori’s war tradition in New Zealand.

It’s a Hawaiian Luau Tradition!
76327_175825915777316_7251868_n

Also called fire spinning, fire performance, fire twirling or fire manipulation.
Fire performance typically involves equipment or other objects
made with one or more wicks which are designed to sustain
a large enough flame to create a visual effect.

Not Burning Man 2021

Not Burning Man! Breaking News!
Black Rock Desert, Nevada – August 2021
TTITD? TOTITD? Or just a radical simulation?

00Camp Envy

People will be out on The Playa (Black Rock Desert, Nevada) again this year!
Many more people this year then were at the “Pretend Burn” last year most likely.
Last year, the whole world was deep into the COVID-19 Pandemic
and the BMorg told people not to go, but of course people went….

97039979_2516247011813489_6830277037605781504_n

So this year, people have forgotten about the Pandemic and want to go.
There is NO BURNING MAN this year.
There wasn’t time or anyway to sell tickets and everything else.
Too many unknowns and TOO MUCH LIABILITY. AND NO CASH TOO.
So, hopefully they will be able to have Burning Man 2022… but who knows?

“These rules are pretty specific.
It’s almost as if they know who’s showing up…”

Practice the “Ten Principles” and also Consent (“the eleventh principle”)
AND ALWAYS SAFETY THIRD!
Safety for OTHERS, Safety for PLACE AND PROPERTY,
and then SAFETY THIRD! (for yourself)

This letter is from Chelsea McKinney, Burning Man Project Manager from the
Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office
June 7, 2021
Good Morning,
You are being contacted because you have reached out with questions or you have submitted an application for a commercial or organized group Special Recreation Permit (SRP) to come out to the Black Rock Desert playa this summer.
I am writing to inform you that the Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office (BLM), has made decisions regarding the activities mentioned above. These decisions have been made with Public Health and Safety, and Resource Protection in mind, and we hope that you all and other visitors will respect these decisions. The decisions are:
No Organized Group SRPs will be authorized/issued.
People are still welcome to visit the Black Rock Desert playa and camp.
No Commercial/Vending SRPs will be authorized/issued. Camps must be self-sufficient. No deliveries, or services will be authorized. This includes porta-potties. Camps can get their own toilets, off of public land, and bring them out themselves, then return them. This must all be done by someone in your camp. No pumping services will be authorized.
The BLM will also be implementing Temporary Restrictions of the playa.
These restrictions include:
Commercial activities, as defined at 43 CFR 2932.5, are prohibited.
Camping use is limited to the flat and un-vegetated playa surface.
Building of structures is prohibited. A structure is defined as construction, placement or organization of parts, pieces, or objects that are not intended for sleeping, cooking, or protection from the elements, such as shade tents.

Storage of over 20 gallons of fuel must include secondary containment capable of holding and preventing leaks and spills on the playa surface. Storage of less than 20 gallons must include a spill pad or other measures to prevent leaks and spills. Secondary containment is defined as capturing the entire contents of the largest tank in the containment area in the event of a leak or spill.
Unauthorized dumping or discharge of fresh water onto the playa surface in a manner that creates a hazard or nuisance is prohibited.
Aircraft landing, taking off, touch and go’s, and taxiing is prohibited. Aircraft is defined in Title 18, U.S.C., section 31 (a)(1) and includes lighter-than-aircraft and ultra-light craft. However, in an emergency, fixed wing aircraft and helicopters that are providing emergency medical services are not prohibited.

An open container is defined as any bottle, can, or other container which contains an alcoholic beverage, if that container does not have a closed top or lid for which the seal has not been broken. If the container has been opened one or more times, and the lid or top has been replaced, that container is an open container. The possession of an open container includes any open container that is physically possessed by the driver or operator or is adjacent to and reachable by that driver or operator. This includes, but is not limited, to containers in a cup holder or rack adjacent to the driver or operator, containers on a vehicle floor next to the driver or operator, and containers on a seat or console area next to a driver or operator.

This includes all flames that are automated, switched, pressurized or having any other action than simply being lit on fire; as well as projects using propane or other liquid or gaseous fuels.
We also ask that everyone continue to follow Leave No Trace principles and follow all other state and local laws.
Please be respectful of the communities and services you use when coming to the Black Rock Desert playa.
Please use best judgement and know your limits. The BLM wants visitors to have a good time when visiting public land but we want you to be safe. Be aware that Emergency Services (medical, fire, law enforcement) are limited around the area.
I want to thank you all for reaching out and being responsible recreationists. I hope to see you out on the Black Rock Desert playa this summer. If you have questions please email me to schedule a time to talk. Thank you.

As per The Bureau of Land Management in Nevada website:

Responsible recreation is essential to ensure your public lands remain open to multiple uses. Please remember to stay on existing routes and practice “Leave No Trace” principles while enjoying your public lands.

Nevada’s public lands are open to camping. There is no fee for dispersed, primitive camping, but there is a limit to the number of days one may camp in the same location. Dispersed, primitive camping is camping where there are no developed amenities such as water or toilets. Primitive campers are asked to follow the “Leave No Trace” land use ethics. Dispersed camping in a motorhome is allowed, but dumping black or gray water on public lands isn’t allowed. Some campground are established that requires a fee to manage it.

A person may not occupy undeveloped public lands or designated sites or areas for more than 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period.
Following the 14 days, a person and their personal property must relocate to a site outside of at least a 25 mile radius from the occupied site for a period of 14 days.

The following Travel Guidelines have been developed for travelers entering, departing, or returning to the State of Nevada. Traveler must follow state and local requirements, and at a minimum, avoid large indoor gatherings, maintain social distancing, and always wear a face covering.

You should NOT travel if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 and have not yet recovered
  • Have been presumptuously diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19

IF you travel, make sure to do the following:

  • Avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from anyone who is not from your household
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol)
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover coughs and sneezes

Before you decide to travel to or from Nevada, do an assessment of the following:

  • Do you live with someone who might be more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? If you get infected while traveling, you can spread the virus to loved ones when you return, even if you don’t have symptoms.
  • Are you more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? Anyone can get very ill from the virus that causes COVID-19, but older adults and people of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Sunday, Temple Burn 2017
bm2017

Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire


YUPDATED: Friday, June 11, 2021 – 2:00am
We just ripped this pic from P. Mackey (who took this pic earlier today)
The Playa on Thursday, June 10, 2021
198121969_10165585243240372_8333245388749787511_n

Some “beginner” guidelines to get you started::
Please consult the Burning Man website for THE SURVIVAL GUIDE and other info.
There are some “rules and regulations” and even some LAWS that you need to know.
WE ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! Consult a licensed attorney.

Never burn anything directly on The Playa surface!
Use a Burn Platform or Burn Barrel for all pyrotechnics.
And technically you are not allowed to burn anything this year (as per the BLM)

Store fuel safely! Separate Fuel Safe Containment is required!
Make sure everything is ventilated properly!
(generators, fuel storage, cooking equipment, etc.)
Have charged fire-extinguishers and other fire-fighting equipment in your camp.

LEAVE NO TRACE! Pack it in, pack it out. LEAVE NO MOOP! (Matter Out Of Place)
There are no trash cans in the Black Rock Desert. Don’t let anything hit the ground.
Refer to the Burning Man website for more about LNT (Leave No Trace) and MOOP.

DON’T PEE OR POOP ON THE PLAYA! Seriously. Prepare for bodily functions.
It’s against the law to urinate/defecate on The Playa! There are serious FINES if caught!
Also, it’s fucking GROSS and OFFENSIVE and INCONSIDERATE, so don’t do it PLEASE.

Dispose of all fluids and materials, including gray water, by the appropriate means.
Again, DO NOT DUMP ON THE PLAYA! Evaporate Grey water properly.
Take the rest with you.

Drive safely and at a reasonable speed for the conditions.
Don’t drive erratically, ride on the roof or hang off the side of your vehicle.
DO NOT DRIVE WHILE INTOXICATED!  (“Buzzed” Driving is Drunk Driving!)

DON’T DRIVE ON WET PLAYA!
If it rains, do not drive until The Playa is completely dry.
Do not get stuck in The Playa Mud
it doesn’t just wash off and you may not recover your vehicle.
Towing from The Playa can get into the THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
(if you can get a tow truck to come out on The Playa,
most warranties and/or services end at the highway and they won’t service you)

Secure your load, inspect your trailer, have a backup plan.
EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE PLAYA!
Obey all Traffic Laws and Vehicle Regulations! YOU MAY STILL BE PULLED OVER!
Nevada State Police, Reservation Police, Bureau of Land Management Police,
the FEDS, and other LEOs are just looking for a reason…..  DON’T GIVE THEM ONE!
Fines are high for all violations. You don’t want to go to jail in Nevada.
In the past they have harassed, searched, sniffed, and arrested Burners
using questionable and sometimes illegal tactics.
If you are stopped REMAIN SILENT!
DO NOT CONSENT TO SEARCH (even if you’re clean)
If you are searched GET NAMES AND BADGE NUMBERS!
They must identify themselves!
Get it on video if you can without antagonizing the situation!
USE THE ACLU APP!
If you are arrested: REMAIN SILENT! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
Just STFU! Do not talk to officers. DO NOT TALK TO OFFICERS!
Once you are arrested
“ANYTHING YOU SAY, CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU!”
CONTACT AN ATTORNEY! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
They cannot ask you anything else after that. REMAIN SILENT!
And do not try to talk your way out, it doesn’t work.
They want you to incriminate yourself.
DO NOT LIE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT! REMAIN SILENT!
ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
ASK IF YOU ARE FREE TO GO!
If they say no, ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
REPEAT UNTIL THEY ARREST YOU OR LET YOU GO! REMAIN SILENT!
“I have been advised to remain silent. Am I under arrest? Am I free to go?”

Bring everything you need for RADICAL SELF RELIANCE and SURVIVAL!
The Nevada Desert can kill you.  Emergency Services are limited.
A HOSPITAL IS FAR AWAY!  If you are seriously injured you could die.
Have Medical and Travel Insurance for Medical Evacuation (by helicopter)!
Refer to the Burning Man SURVIVAL GUIDE for more info about NOT DYING.
1-2 Gallons of WATER per Person per Day is REQUIRED for SURVIVAL
Bring it with you! Use it wisely! STAY HYDRATED! PISS CLEAR!
Food. Shelter from the Elements – THE BLACK ROCK DESERT IS NO JOKE.
(SUN, EXTEME HEAT, WIND, WIND STORMS,
FREEZING COLD, PLAYA DUST, AND RAIN!
Prepare for the worst, you will probably experience it during your vacation.
Have FUN. Don’t die.

Another UPDATE: Wednesday August 11, 2021:

And if you’re still going to Northern Nevada,
expect SMOKE from the California and Oregon Wildfires!
AND THE COVID-19 DELTA VARIANT IS STILL SPREADING!

NOT BURNING MAN SUCKS. DON’T GO.

Burning Man 2014 – Wake of the Flood on Monday



UPDATE Wednesday, August 18, 2021
For anyone going to the Black Rock Desert this month, be aware of these things:
– The Smoke from Fires in California and Oregon will impact your experience.
– The lack of infrastructure and contracted law enforcement,
porta-potties, and medical services.
– Cell reception is BAD.
You may be out of contact or have limited service on The Playa.
– The nearest Trauma-II Hospital is 141 miles away and a 3+ hour drive to Reno.

The Bureau of Land Management has published temporary restrictions, regulations,
and rules that will be in effect until October 31, 2021 to prevent Burning Man events.
If you are going to the Black Rock Desert, make sure you read and review the rules.

The Playa from the 8 Mile Gate Entrance today:
(pic by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office)
Note: No Black Rock Mountains visible!
237003178_10157999283626611_4691422253809444854_n
We won’t be there. But have a good time if you go. Don’t die.

The end of the road….

Black Rock Desert, Nevada

Burning Man 2014 – The Man Burns Longtime!

Took the week off posting to the blog, but I’ve been armchair surfing the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert all week. Last night the Man burned, and smoldered, and smoked, and then finally fell.

Burning Man 2014 - Great Pic!

Burning Man 2014 – Great Pic! The Man and “Embrace” silhouetted against the desert sky

THE USTREAM WEBCAST COVERAGE SUCKED HARD!!! (and “F*ck your day!” if you think otherwise) YES I’M A CRITIC! And I’m going to trash the Ustream cast.

Someone suggested that if I wanted better coverage I should go out to the desert. I don’t disagree, and it would be really cool to be there, but alas I’m stuck here in Los Angeles sharing the experience with about 14000 people online (at peak viewing) and the camera operator doesn’t know how to focus the HD camera. There were 100% Technical Problems including not enough bandwidth and choppy streaming, MAJOR AUDIO PROBLEMS, loss of picture, loss of stream, terrible picture in picture that distracted from the burn, ZERO CREATIVITY!, and terrible camera technique. Learn how to FOCUS!

BEST MOMENT: At one point the picture cut to the guy operating the stream, a bearded hipster in coveralls, he looked up from the keyboard and saw that he was live on the web, made a great “surprise” face and then immediately switched the stream back. I hope someone got a screen shot of the guy’s video selfie, so we can post it!

Okay, so there you go. thanks to everyone who made the webcast happen, we really appreciate your effort, but unfortunately EPIC FAIL!

Burning Man 2014

Burning Man 2014 – The Man Burns!

I watched the webcast and wasn’t the only person who thought the coverage sucked.

And here’s the big kicker: It took over an hour for The Man to burn. There were fireworks, and a great conflagration, and then another 45 minutes or more of “smoldering man”, “standing man” and “boring man” before the effigy actually collapsed.

A much better burn happened on Friday afternoon when they burned the “Embrace” art! There are great pictures and cool video online of the fire. Check it out!

On opening day Monday, heavy rain and hail muddied the playa and caused the organizers to close the gates due to BLM restrictions on vehicles. The gates may have been closed but the PARTY was in full force Monday night into Tuesday morning.
