Well, yes, my 11th year, how could I not go? A free gifted ticket helped! Thanks, Nurse Flo! (for a longer write-up of my trip this year, click here for the September issue of The Eleven)
Yes, it was marvelous. Yes, there was dust. Yes, I had the time of my life! I’m going to do a longer write up of my experience, with a slide show and all that, but right now it’s time to decompress. Vitamin C, deplayafying stuff, and showering often 🙂
I spent much of this year plying the playa with my trusty bike, making new friends, and enjoying the incredible large-scale artworks. The weather really cooperated, and it was the best weather year we’ve had in a long time. The rainstorm on Monday night led to clear lungs for the next 3 days, and the temperatures were very mild compared to previous years. I found some new theme camps to enjoy this year – the big pink heart, Tuna Guys, and the BRCPO 2.0 was filled with a really stellar bunch this year. I’ll be posting a lot more, but here’s some playa to walk on to start with.
Here’s a slide show of some photos that Tantelope took. I could write for days about this experience, of course, and there’s emails to answer, and my e-letter, The Eleven to write, so that will have to wait a little while 🙂 Dontcha worry, I’ll say more, cause it was a big big year. Best ever, as they all are. Next year was always better, though 🙂
