Travel Tips for Venturing OUT of Black Rock City

So! You’ve decided to take a trip away from Black Rock City!  Here are some tips to keep in mind when traveling away from Home:

Clothing: Make sure to bring enough clothes so that everyone in your group can have some. Among other things, will save you all time later since you won’t have to keep switching.

Travel:  A note of caution here! Some vehicles that appear to have extra room for more people may not be giving rides!  We’re not sure exactly why this is, but we’ve had several reports of this.  Always ask for explicit permission before getting into someone else’s vehicle — a friendly “Hi!” and a wave as you climb in may not be enough!  Use your judgement.  Also note that some vehicles may travel faster than 5 M.P.H.

Make sure you are at Burning Man...

Money: Do you remember when you were a child, collecting bits of money here and there, slowly saving up for that one thing you really wanted? Well, money here works the same way, except that you may have to break open your piggy bank a little bit more often.  If it helps, think of every shop, store, restaurant, gas station, bar, and mall that you see as if they were “Arctica”, and what they’re all selling is basically just ice: cool, and maybe useful, but ultimately fleeting and ephemeral. ‘Nuff said.

be 100% happy or receive 100% money back.*

Fire: Make sure to establish a safe perimeter around any burn events that you create.  This goes double for large-scale burns; many people you meet may be new to this form of expression and will greatly benefit from your love and guidance as they participate in the burning of any large-scale structures.  Also, you might want to ask permission from the structure’s owner beforehand, if you can find them easily.

And finally... The Man burns... and we are done.

Bacon: BACON IS EXACTLY THE SAME EVERYWHERE, THANK $%!*&@# GOD.

Returning Home After Your Trip: After you’ve had an exciting jaunt out and about, it’s always good to come back Home, to be with your family and your loved ones.  Have a wonderful trip, and we’ll see you when you get Home again.

Mighty Trojan Warriors!

Yours in flame-
