    Yes I know there is not a Burning man fest in the Houston area.
    So I would like to be a part of this more than anything.
    So if anyone can give me some help on where the nearest one is I would love the information. And I'll start trying to find a ride .

    How is burning man different from rainbow gatherings? I ask because Burning Man seems pretty expensive for an event with no professional live music and rainbow gatherings are free.

    Rainbow and BM are very different things.
    BM is not predominately hippie/ back to the landers, for one.
    BM is a art for arts sake gathering
    Rainbow is a tribal paray for world peace gathering.

    I really really want to go to burning man, i'm not sure if i know anyone that can for sure go though. I don't even know if i can for sure go, i am starting college right after labour day and have to move into the dorms. I must go to burning man though! i know i wo uld love it. I would have to fly there as well, it's too far a drive from Mpls and i have to go to school like the day after it ends.


    i hope i go
     
  12. yea, a lot of people just tell their profs n stuff that they need to miss the first couple of days and they work it out easily. g'luck, burning man is sweet. :)

    umm...excuse my ignorance, but im not entirely sure wat the burning man thing is...sounds interesting tho!
    is it by any chance the festival held in the middle of the desert when they make HUGE wooden carvings of dragons and stuff and then they burn them. and there is hundreds of ppl and no one gets lost cox they just hav to walk towards the burnings sculptures!!

    y'know the one founded by the scientists who were tripping off their faces??? ach well maybe im speaking crap...lol

    Lenore, BM started on the West Coast and now is in Nevada.
    The playa is a delicate ecosystem, but to the MBM organizers' credit, they do a hreat job leaving no trace.

    Yes, bm is a city for a week of art and alternative society installations that is burned at the end (to cuy down on stuff to pack out and to illustrate art's intransience.
