I’m going to Burning Man for the third time this year.
And I’m really looking forward to exploring the playa with Yvonne, Tejas’ former lady love (did I mention they split?).
We’re all piling into his RV, the Motorbeast, and camping together at Burning Man.
But this year there’s a twist.
I am flying in and out of Reno and taking the Burner Express to and from the playa.
Best of all, I get to see my sister who lives in Reno the Saturday before the burn and the Monday after the burn.
Did I mention that she has a waterfall shower and a hot tub?
It will feel SO AWESOME after the burn to take a luxurious shower and soak in her hot tub.
I feel like each time I go to Burning Man, I capture a little more of it’s flavor.
My first year, I struggled.
My second year, I started to have fun.
This year hopefully the trend continues and I spend more time exploring and less time in camp.
I wish I could pack up The Swede and take him with me to Burning Man.
I think he’d have a great time checking out the art and interactivity.
But I don’t think that will happen this year, so I’m resigned to finding ways to really enjoy myself with Tejas and Yvonne.
As much as it’s possible to have a great experience at Burning Man going as a solitary person and making your own fun I find that for me, the most fun I can have is sharing my experiences with others.
Someday perhaps I will share Burning Man with The Swede.
For now, my partners in crime are Tejas and Yvonne.
And that’s a lot!
