Back from Burning Man!

Hey kids!!

Well my 5th year on the playa was absolutely life changing. 6 days spent in the heat with 2 nasty dust storms but still had an amazing time! It's so hard returning to regular scheduled life!

I took loads of pictures of the most amazing art, will post them online soon for anyone interested.

I won't be posting as often now that my business is up and running but will pop in when I can to say hi. Hope all of you wonderful DCers are doing great!!

I can't wait to see the pics. I have not been to burning man, but have been to many music fests where you really feel like you are in another world. I know what you mean about it being hard to come back to reality. Welcome home!

I haven't had time to tag any of them yet but here they are. My large group of friends have been putting on a theme camp for 7 years and this was our last year. It was so fun but also emotional. I will start tagging photos this weekend and putting captions in. I hope you enjoy! I'm still sad its over and trying to get back to reality.

I've heard about this for years--kind of like Sturgis, although it appears from the photos it's the guys that wear skimpy thongs.

My take is that this is a music fest, although the odd custom vehicles kind of throw me.

Can you explain a touch of the background here? When I do a wikki search on anything, I get a bland explanation.
