These are reasons to go and or criterion that you must meet in order to do so:

1. You should know if you are meant to be there if you have discussed it with anyone for more than 30 seconds.
2. You can just be a freak about fixating on some project that may take months of blood sweat and tears, but will really only be on display for about three days once you get it up and before you
take it down at BRC... and you will still be thrilled to bring it out there and have people check it out.
3. Your relationship can survive the week.... Possibly your relationship will benefit from the week.
4. You can survive the week (or actually we have one member of our camp that may or may not be true of but he will die happy if he doesn't make it back to CA... he is 85 + and has one lung -so far no one has been able to dissuade him from coming - which I guess I can understand in a way).
5. You like heat and dust, or at least can deal with heat and dust, oh yah, also freezing cold, rain, mud, heat and dust and dust and dust. Also stinging dust storms. You are willing to be in conditions that if you get sprayed down with a mister it is possible to go into hypothermia even when the air temperature is 120 F in the shade.
6. You are basically impervious to complaining under the above conditions.
7. Your work/school can sustain being without you for least a week in August/September.
8. Hell, probably mostly burners reading this anyway... you know why you should be there.

10. What have you got to lose except your limits?

You get to be nekid as long, as as much as you wanna be.
get to hang out with others doing the same.
Get to work on the "no tan lines" concept
you have the opportunity to meet possibly the best people you could have ever meet out side of possibly blood family

finally, but not lastly, promote the idea that we as a global Creative village can be a community once again like in times before Commercialism.

relying on yourself to do what needs to be done for the greater good of the burn & each other.

It is there now but not forever.
We need to fight for our rights to party
We meet the nicest people on the playa
It's fun to see 50,000 close friends in one place
Take away the commerce and we all become 6 year olds
It's not as hot as Tucson in August
The Art!
We must all learn to love Techno
There is nowhere else you can show off your wardrobe like this

1. It's the best party on the planet.
2. You can get drunk and walk around naked and it's no big deal.
3. You can see art and music there that you won't find anywhere else.
4. Almost everyone I've ever met there is cool.
5. At night, the Playa is the most magical place I can think of.
6. Dr. Megavolt's camp
7. All the cool rides and art cars, and copious nudity!
8. It's like a Mad Max movie without all the violence and sadism.
9. You can be yourself and people are very accepting.
10. I love the personal freedom.

to my understanding, there is no such thing as Burning Man. It is just like the "Bogey Man," a faerie tale to scare little children - a vast right wing conspiracy to terrorize the TV generation...

Therefore, there is NO reason to go to Burning Man. It doesn't exist.

Stop wasting your valuable shopping time and leave this site immediately! Hurry before the Walmart corporate security black helicopters track your navigation...
