Well its one chick I'm dating (27 years old no kids, cute face, nice tits and ass, she says she might get naked on the playa, we shall see) and my lawyer friend that I party with. He's a big lawyer at MTV so he has a lot of hook ups.

word of advice to 1st time burners: drive to the nearest NICE hotel, usually in RENO and take the next 3-4 days off to recuperate before heading home. Those blackout curtains and ice cold A/C does what normally would take 10 days to recover at home.

Planning on taking Jungo road in. Like a 100 mile dirt road shortcut from Winnemucca. Trego Hot Springs is on the route although I have read that it will be closed and monitored by BLM during the burn.


Dogpilot any requests before I stock the Sankey at the liquor store? For scotch Laphroaig is my default. Just got the lights on that thing working today (except for the fogs but I don't think that's critical).


I get the city folks freaking out about the bugs. We've done plenty of camping in the desert but never with 65,000 people and pounding electronic dance music. Should be fun!

Dude you're living in the lap of luxury. We're tenting it. Dunes will form in the tent. If we get a serious sandstorm you'll have a line of hotties at your place looking for shelter from the elements.

That must be one hell of a vibrator.

Good luck with the dust and enjoy the spectacle. It's unique.

Absolutely have to see it for yourself. It's sort of hard to contemplate some of the shit I saw there.

It's a freak show but some really cool people as well. Hopefully you remembered ear plugs in addition to any other kind of plugs you may have brought.
